Frequently Asked Questions
from Our Patients

Whether you’re interested in improving your smile or require restorative treatment to fix a compromised tooth, you’re bound to have various questions about your dental visit and what to expect. And while a phone call would be the quickest way to get the answers you’re looking for, not everyone’s schedule may be as open. You may even prefer researching online before visiting our office. Even so, we’ve taken the time to compile a list of some of our most frequently asked questions from our patients in Houston to make this process easier for you.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

If you have an urgent oral health situation, make sure to call our office right away so one of our team members can help. We can understand your condition and determine the best way to treat you while you’re on your way to see us. Of course, if you’re experiencing a life-threatening situation like a broken jaw or difficulty swallowing/breathing, then call 911 first or visit your local ER. Though they may not have a dentist on staff or be fully equipped for dental care, they can provide antibiotics and alleviate pain and/or bleeding. If it’s not life-threatening, then you can visit our practice for care, as we offer same-day appointments for urgent situations. To avoid experiencing a dental emergency, be sure to take care of your smile every day and visit your dentist every six months to prevent underlying issues from starting.

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

The best place for getting dental care will depend on what you find important for you. This can consist of a combination of factors, such as expenses, hours, credentials, safety, insurance, and location. Of course, the kind of treatment you need or are interested in will also be crucial, like if you require major restorative work or simply want to enhance your smile with cosmetic dentistry. You should also try to get a feel for the dental office itself to see how the team treats patients and what they prioritize. To get a better idea of who the staff members are, you can look up their bios on their website to learn about their backgrounds and credentials.

How Much Does it Cost to Get a Tooth Pulled Without Insurance?

The answer will vary depending on various factors, like the geography and the oral health of the patient. On average, however, the cost of tooth extraction in the United States is somewhere between $150 and $400. The price can be impacted by things like the complexity of the procedure and whether or not a patient will require sedation or other associated treatments. Patients who have dental insurance might expect their fees to be negotiated between their provider and the dentist. The cost of wisdom teeth extractions is usually more expensive, especially if they require the help of an oral surgeon.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Much of dentistry is about prevention, so visiting taking care of your teeth every day and visiting your dentist biannually will save you a lot of money in the long run. However, if you can’t pay the entire sum of your dental treatment on your own, there are options to help make your procedures more manageable. Dental insurance is incredibly helpful and you’ll want to make the most of your benefits. Even if you aren’t currently insured, you can explore other solutions like CareCredit, which can help you pay the cost of dental care with monthly, low-to-no-interest installments!
