Choosing the Best Emergency Dentist in Stockertown

by | May 6, 2013 | Dental Services


Even with good preventative dental care, a person can fall down and chip a tooth or a pair of dentures can break. These unforeseen crises require the attention of an Emergency Dentist Stockertown as soon as possible. Most dental offices allow people that need root canals, emergency tooth extractions, broken or chipped tooth repairs or denture repairs to just walk into their offices. Many promise same day appointments, but often they will see patients in pain immediately. It’s important when a family or individual chooses a family dentist that they ask about emergency dental visits.

Emergency dental care can be expensive and it’s hard to plan for it in the family budget. Dental offices attempt to soften the financial blow by accepting many types of dental insurance programs. They accept most credit cards so that patients can create their own payment plan. However in these difficult times, unemployed people may have no dental insurance and their credit cards may be maxed out. There are reduced fee programs that people can join with a small membership fee. These programs reduce the payment for emergency services from 40 to 60 percent. They then contract with specific dentists to provide the services. That’s about the same reduction that patients with insurance get. However, the program may not reduce the overall price the way that many insurance programs do.

Choosing a small, single-dentist practice can be problematic if the Emergency Dentist Stockertown provider is on vacation or has several emergency appointments in the same day. It’s appropriate for a potential patient to ask how emergencies will be handled. Many small dental practices may cover for each other. If this is the case, a patient should find out who those dentists will be. This ensures that the patient will be comfortable with every potential dental provider.

An Emergency Dentist Stockertown visit can be traumatic, especially if it results in the loss of a front tooth. A good Cosmetic dentist will be able to insert an implant and porcelain crown at a future date. This combination will be so realistic, no one will know it’s not a genuine tooth.
