Getting the Affordable Care You Need

The last thing you want to think about when experiencing a dental emergency is how much it’s going to cost. Not only are you unsure what type of treatment you’ll need to address the problem but not knowing how much you can expect to spend can add unnecessary stress to the situation. Fortunately, at Orbit Dental of Garland, our team will go over all the factors that can influence the cost of treatment and offer additional payment options to minimize your out of pocket expenses. To learn more, contact us today!

What Factors Dictate the Cost of a Dental Emergency?

Most dental procedures are not one-size-fits-all. When preparing to receive restorative care for your dental emergency, you can expect a personalized treatment plan designed to address your problem area(s) so that you will achieve desired results. This is why there is no set amount for dental emergencies. If you require a dental crown for a chipped tooth and your cousin, who lives in another state, had the same procedure months ago, don’t expect the cost to be the same.

Why? Because various factors are considered when determining the overall cost, some of which include:

  • The location of your dentist's office. If positioned in a larger city, you will likely pay more because of the higher cost of living.
  • Whether you have dental insurance or not. While there are alternative payment options available, dental insurance can help to further minimize out of pocket expenses.
  • The type of care you receive. Not all dental work is the same, so a dental crown can be much less expensive than a root canal or tooth extraction.

What Alternative Payment Options are Available?

When seeking dental care from Orbit Dental of Garland, you will be pleased to learn that we are an in-network provider for most PPO dental insurance companies. However, if you are uninsured or require additional payment options to lower your expenses, we also accept Medicaid for children and young adults 20 and younger or CHIP coverage.

We can also help you enroll in CareCredit financing, which is a third-party financier that offers low and no-interest loans to qualified candidates. This will allow you to put the cost of your treatment on a payment plan that is better aligned with your budget.

Importance of Seeking Immediate Care for Your Emergency

Dental emergencies should not be put off. Even if you think it is a minor problem, a more serious issue could be developing within a tooth or underneath the gum line. If left untreated, you may develop symptoms that negatively impact both your oral and overall health and wellbeing.

We remind all our patients that no matter the type of injury or accident to call our office and alert us to the situation. Based on the information you provide, we can recommend the appropriate course of action to ensure you get the help you need. If an immediate appointment is not necessary, we will be happy to walk you through the steps to taking care of your dental emergency at home.
