Should I visit the ER or an Austin emergency dentist?

We recommend visiting an emergency dentist for dental emergencies whenever possible. Emergency dentists offer specialized care, immediate attention, and focused treatment tailored to dental issues. Unlike emergency rooms, our practice prioritizes dental emergencies and provides comprehensive solutions to address your family’s needs promptly and effectively. If you have any additional, more urgent injuries that require immediate attention, visiting the ER first may be the way to go. Still not sure what to do? Feel free to give us a call, and we’ll be glad to assist.

Are emergency dental visits expensive?

Patients are sometimes hesitant to seek emergency dental care due to cost concerns. However, when a dental emergency arises, it’s important to seek prompt treatment, as the sooner you can see your Austin emergency dentist, the more likely it is that we will have a greater variety of treatment options to choose from. Our office is insurance friendly, and we also accept CareCredit™ payment plans, which can help divide costs into manageable monthly payments.
