You Asked, We’ve Answered!

If you have any questions or concerns about dental care, the best way to reach us is by phone call, as we’ll be able to quickly provide you with the information you need. However, many people have busy schedules or simply prefer researching on their own before visiting. In either case, our team is happy to help in this process by compiling a list of some of our most commonly asked questions. Feel free to reach out to us if you don’t see the information you’re looking for!

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

You’ll first need to call the practice so that someone on the dental team can help you with your emergency. Of course, if your situation is more life-threatening, such as difficulty breathing/swallowing or a broken jaw, then you’ll need to call 911 instead and/or head straight to your local ER. Though most emergency clinics won’t be able to specifically treat dental cases, they can alleviate your discomfort and provide you with antibiotics at the very least. When you’re able to visit us for emergency dentistry, we’ll likely have same-day appointments available so you can get the treatment you need right away. Remember, most dental emergencies are signs of “bigger” issues, so be sure to practice daily oral hygiene and schedule biannual dental checkups to save yourself money and time.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a Tooth Extraction Without Insurance?

In most cases in the United States, the cost of a tooth extraction can be anywhere between $150 and $400. This, of course, will also vary based on factors like geography and the condition of a patient’s dental health. You should also keep preliminary or additional services in mind, such as if you require sedation dentistry or other related procedures as well. If you do have insurance, your dentist and your provider can negotiate the fees for an extraction ahead of time. It’s also important to remember that wisdom teeth extractions usually cost more than a regular extraction, as they may require specialized help from an oral surgeon.

What Is the Best Way to Find a Cosmetic Dentist?

Keep in mind that there is no singular designation that will qualify a dentist as a cosmetic dentist. Still, numerous organizations do offer advanced courses on cosmetic dentistry, which are the kind of credentials you’ll want to look for if you’re interested in enhancing your pearly whites. One of the most professional and prestigious organizations for cosmetic dentistry in the United States is the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). You’ll also want to review the kinds of courses your dentist has undertaken over the years and if they continue to pursue advanced training in cosmetic services. Fortunately, our team consists of professionals who have many years of experience with cosmetic dentistry as well as BOTOX/dermal filling and facial esthetics.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

This answer will mainly depend on what you deem important. This can be a mixture of several factors, such as insurance/payment/fees, location, credentials, hours, tidiness, and safety. Of course, you’ll also want to figure out the kind of treatment you need or are interested in, such as cosmetic services for improving your smile or dental implants for rebuilding missing teeth Lastly, you’ll want to get a better feel for the practice you’re considering, such as how they treat patients one-on-one and what their approach is to dental care. You can also get a clearer understanding of the team you’ll be working with by reading their bios on their website.
