Cost of Dental Emergencies – Frisco, TX
Affordable, Compassionate Care When You Need It
When a dental emergency strikes, your first thought is typically something along the lines of, “Ouch!” It usually isn’t until you’re on your way to our office that you begin to consider the cost of getting your toothache or broken tooth treated. At that point, you may start feeling anxious on top of all the stress you’re already experiencing because of your dental emergency. At Archway Dental, Dr. Parmar wants you to be more concerned about the state of your oral health than the amount of money it will take to restore it. That’s why you can expect our friendly team members to minimize the stress of the financial aspects of your treatment by working with your insurance company as well as finding additional ways to make your emergency care more affordable.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Emergency Treatment
Unsurprisingly, emergency dental care generally costs more than your average checkup and cleaning. However, the exact price you’ll have to pay will depend on a few factors. The most primary of these factors is the type of emergency you’ve sustained. For example, treating a small cavity with a filling will cost less than a more extensive procedure, like a root canal.
Another factor that influences your cost of treatment is whether you have dental insurance. If you do, you can expect lower out-of-pocket expenses. Minor services may be covered at up to 70-80%, while major restorative treatments may be eligible for 50-70% coverage from your insurance company.
Our Financial Options
At Archway Dental, we are proud to be in-network with the majority of PPO dental insurance plans, some of which include:
- Delta Dental
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
If you are uninsured and need help paying for your care, we can help you apply for CareCredit. This third-party financing company lets you take out loans to fund your dental treatment and pay them back at incredibly low interest rates.
The Importance of Seeking Prompt Treatment
It can be tempting to put off scheduling an appointment for a dental emergency until you have a bit more money saved up. However, this could only make things worse later on. While general medical problems, such as the common cold, generally improve over time, oral health issues almost never do. In fact, they usually get worse the longer you ignore them. The more your problem progresses, the more extensive treatment you’ll need, and the higher your costs will be. Calling us to schedule an appointment as soon as a dental emergency arises can save both your wallet and your oral health.
