Emergency Dentistry FAQ
Do I need to be an existing patient to schedule an emergency dentist appointment?
You do not! For emergency appointments during normal business hours, we accept any patient whether they have worked with us before or not. For after-hours emergency appointments, we only accept patients with an existing history who are on file with our practice.
Are emergency dentistry appointments covered by insurance?
While exact insurance coverage will depend on your plan and the care needed, emergency appointments are generally covered at least partially.
Do you offer sedatives and medication if my child is in pain?
Of course! Our emergency dentist for kids offer multiple sedation options for children. We typically recommend nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas for anxious kiddos that are needing emergency services. While we do offer oral sedation, IV sedation and general anesthesia, these are not routinely used to provide emergency services since these require an empty stomach. However, we can offer those treatments to provide corrective or restorative treatment for dental emergencies if they are necessary and scheduled appropriately. These services will help not only ease any pain from a procedure, but also offer relief for any dental anxiety they might be experiencing.
