FAQ’s About Dentistry
Do you have questions? If so, we are always happy to take your call. Our friendly front desk staff is ready to give you the information you need. However, we also know that you may like to research, or you simply don’t have time to contact us during your busy schedule, which is why we’ve included a list of answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that we get about dentistry. Read on to satisfy your curiosity!
How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?
The first step is to contact our office immediately. If you believe your emergency is life threatening, you should always call 911 for urgent care. However, other dental issues will need to be treated at our office because most emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental emergencies. Usually, we’ll be able to see you on the same day of your appointment to get you out of pain. As soon as you call, our staff can walk you through what to do next!
How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?
While you can make appointments with our office online, nothing beats calling us. We will evaluate your issue, advise you of your next steps, and then schedule your visit as soon as possible. Dr. Drieland will always make room in his schedule to treat patients with urgent dental health issues and provide them with much needed relief.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
It’s always a good idea to figure out exactly what you’re looking for first. Do you want a dentist who can care for you and your family at the same location? Are you searching for a cosmetic expert to transform your smile? These are some things to keep in mind. You should also ensure that your potential dentist accepts your insurance for affordable care. Once you’ve checked these boxes, look for patient reviews and staff bios to get a better idea of whether or not the practice is right for you.
How Much Does It Cost to Get a Tooth Pulled without Insurance?
Your cost will vary based on numerous factors, including your own oral health. The average extraction fee in the US is between $150 and $400, however additional costs may apply if there are complications during treatment. If you have insurance, these fees will be negotiated with your provider to typically give you a lower price. It’s important to keep in mind that wisdom teeth extractions are usually more expensive because they often require specialized services.
What Do You Do if You Can’t Afford a Dentist?
If you have access to dental insurance, be sure to take advantage of your benefits. When it comes to your health, it’s all about prevention. Routine checkups and cleanings protect you from serious and costly treatments because they catch any issues while they’re still small. If you don’t have dental insurance, we offer low-to-no interest financing options as well as an in-house dental savings plan. We are committed to providing quality care for patients with any budget.
