Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

It’s impossible to know how much your dental emergency will cost without a meeting with Dr. Khorasani. A scheduled appointment is necessary, as it allows him to evaluate your mouth, determine the severity of the injury, and decide how best to treat the problem. In certain situations, antibiotics may only be required; however, other cases might call for extraction and tooth replacement. Once we have a better idea as to how much your visit and treatment will cost, we will find ways to maximize your dental insurance benefits and help you save.
