Frequently Asked Questions

If you have questions or concerns about dental treatments or oral health conditions, our team at Denton Dental Center is only a phone call away. By speaking with our caring and knowledgeable staff members, you’ll be able to get your answers much sooner than with an email. However, we also know that daily schedules can get busy and that some people prefer researching on their own. Even so, we are happy to help with this by compiling and responding to several of our most commonly asked questions from our patients in Denton. Keep reading or reach out to us today if there’s something we didn’t cover!

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

The first thing you’ll want to remember is that dentistry involves preventing problems from starting. For this reason, the most affordable thing you can do is visit your dentist routinely at least twice a year. This will allow them to clean plaque and tartar from your teeth as well as address any underlying problems they might detect in your mouth. Fortunately, most dental insurance providers offer coverage for dental checkups and cleanings, making this portion much more affordable in the long run. Even if you don’t have a policy, you may try exploring alternative financing options, such as CareCredit. This third-party financier can help split up the overall cost of your treatment into monthly payments with little to no interest.

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

The answer to this will depend on what you find important to you. There are many combinations of factors you’ll want to consider, including payments/insurance, qualifications, the location of the practice, hours of operation, neatness, and safety. Another aspect involves the kind of treatment you’re interested in, such as wanting cosmetic dentistry, major restorative work, a simple checkup and cleaning, or if you need a dentist for your child. You’ll also want to get a feel for the practice to see what they prioritize and how they treat patients. You can even check reviews from previous patients or read the doctor/staff bios on their website so that you’ll know what to expect when undergoing your dental work.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

First things first, make sure to call our office and let one of our team members know about your situation so that we can schedule an appointment for you. Our practice offers same-day visits, so you can typically expect to receive emergency treatment on the day of the incident. That said, if you’re experiencing life-threatening symptoms, such as a broken jaw, difficulty bleeding, or excessive bleeding, call 911 and visit your local ER instead. While they may not be equipped to treat your specific dental issue, they can at least alleviate discomfort and stop serious complications. Once you’re stable, you can come to visit us to fix your smile. To avoid emergencies and save money, be sure to see your dentist every six months for checkups and cleanings, as many urgent situations start as something that could’ve been prevented early on.

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

The cost of tooth extraction will usually be determined by things like geographic location and a person’s oral health. In most cases, the price for removing a tooth in the United States can be anywhere between $150 and $400. The amount you’ll pay can also be influenced by the difficulty of the treatment and if any other services were required, like sedation dentistry. However, if you have dental insurance, then the cost of your tooth extraction will be negotiated between your provider and doctor.
