How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?
You should only call 911 if you have a life-threatening emergency like a fractured jaw or excessive bleeding. For other kinds of dental emergencies, we encourage you to call our practice. A staff member will help you figure out what first-aid steps you should take to protect your smile and manage your pain. Then, they will schedule an appointment for you so that you can get the care you need. It’s important to have dental emergencies treated promptly; more often than not, they’ll only grow more severe the longer you ignore them.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
Before you decide whether a dental practice is right for you, you need to figure out the answers to these questions:
- Will they take your insurance?
- Do the practice’s hours work with your schedule?
- Are they in a convenient location?
- How experienced is the dentist?
- What services do they offer?
Check the practice’s website to find the information you need. Then, to help you get a feel for what the practice is really like, read some online reviews as well as the dentist’s online biography.
How Much Does a Dental Check-Up & Cleaning Cost in Glendale?
It depends on what practice you go to and where it’s located. The state of your oral health may also be taken into account. Usually, the cost of a dental checkup and cleaning in the United States is between $200 and $350. If you have dental insurance, your plan may mostly – or in some cases, completely – cover the cost of routine preventive care.
Our team will be happy to go over your dental plan with you to make sure that you fully understand what kind of coverage you can expect to receive for a biannual dental checkup and cleaning.
What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?
You should take whatever steps are necessary to fit dental care into your budget; ignoring oral health issues can lead to more severe problems that can be more costly to deal with. Naturally, dental insurance can go a long way toward helping you pay for dental treatment, but that’s not the only option available to you. At our practice, patients who do not have dental insurance may sign up for our Membership Plan, which includes preventive care and offers savings on a number of other services; we’ll always be completely transparent about pricing, and there are no deductibles or annual maximums attached.
