What counts as a dental emergency?

Most dental problems do not need immediate care. You can wait for a few hours or even a few days until you get an appointment with your regular dentist. However, a dental emergency can happen at any time. There are a few signs and symptoms that should tell you that your dental problem is an emergency and you need to seek immediate care from a New York emergency dentist. If you have the following symptoms, you should seek immediate evaluation by a dental professional: 1

  • Severe pain
  • Bleeding from anywhere in the mouth that won’t stop
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Bleeding or swollen gums
  • Lock jaw (difficulty with opening and closing your mouth)
  • Facial trauma with fractures or bleeding

Some common dental problems that are not dental emergencies include hot and cold sensitivity, minor tooth pain, and chipped teeth. These issues can usually wait a few days before they are addressed. However, if you want to schedule an appointment right away, call Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591.

How can I pay for dental treatment with no insurance?

Most emergency dentists in New York accept all the major dental insurance plans. Some or all of the cost of your emergency dental treatment may be covered by your dental insurance, depending on your plan. The friendly operators at Express Dentist 1-844-593-0591 can help you understand your copay (how much you’ll pay out of pocket). They can also help you find an emergency dentist who accepts your plan.

If you are not insured, you can pay for emergency dental care in New York with cash or cards. If you need a significant amount of dental work done, the cost can be prohibitive. However, the cost of dental treatment should not prevent you from getting the care you need.

You can take out a personal loan to pay for your dental care. Some lenders offer dental loans at lower interest rates or on different terms than generic personal loans. Dental loans are unsecured loans, meaning the lender cannot take back a collateral if you default on your payments. (In contrast, an auto loan is a secured loan, meaning the lender can repossess your car if you default). You can use the dental loan to pay for just about any type of dental work, including cleaning, teeth whitening, X-rays, fillings, root canal treatment, crowns, and veneers.

Another option is to find a New York dentist who offers financing plans. These are especially common in cosmetic dentistry. The dentist may have an in-house plan or may have partnered with a third-party lender to make routine and emergency dental treatment accessible to uninsured individuals. The Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 can help you find affordable dental care in your area, whether you need routine dental care or treatment for a dental emergency.

Why do I need an emergency dentist in New York? Can’t I just go to the ER?

If you have suffered significant facial trauma, have uncontrolled bleeding, severe swelling, or fractures, you should go to the nearest emergency room and get immediate medical help. The ER is equipped to treat people with severe injuries and potentially life-threatening emergencies. You can arrive at an ER without an appointment and receive urgent care from a team of medical professionals.

An emergency dentist is a dentist who specializes in providing treatment to patients who need immediate dental care. These dentists typically see patients within 24 hours of symptom onset and provide prompt care the same day. Emergency dentists in New York can quickly diagnose problems with the teeth, gums, or jaw and start the appropriate treatment the same day.

Emergency rooms in hospitals are not always staffed by a dentist 24/7. ER doctors are trained to handle general dental emergencies but they do not usually provide definitive treatments. For example, if you go to the ER with a bad toothache, the ER doctors will likely send you home with pain pills and antibiotics. These measures will relieve your symptoms but they won’t treat the cause of your tooth pain. An emergency dentist, on the other hand, can not only give you relief from your toothache but also perform a treatment such as a root canal to treat the cause of your pain (tooth decay). They can replace a knocked-out tooth and save the tooth, provided you get to the dentist’s office within an hour.
