How Much Does an Emergency Dentist Cost?

We understand that when you have an emergency and you're in pain, the last thing you want to be worrying about is the cost of treatment. That's why we at South Anchorage Dental include emergency dental care in our dental savings plan!

How Much Does an Emergency Dentist Exam Cost?

Our emergency exams usually cost $146, but if you have one of our dental savings plans, you can save up to $107. This means you'll only pay $39 for your exam, taking some of the stress off when you need it most.

What Is the Dental Savings Plan?

We offer three levels of our Dental Savings Plan. All levels include a host of annual preventative and diagnostic services. This includes bi-annual check-ups and cleaning, regular X-rays, and emergency examinations conducted during regular office hours. We also include 20% off all treatment including extractions, root canals, crowns, bridges, dentures, cosmetics, and more. This means that if your emergency visit reveals a serious problem, you can rely on big savings on any further treatment.

You can learn more about our Dental Savings Plans, and how much you could save.

What Can an Emergency Dentist Help Me With?

An emergency dentist may conduct an oral exam or X-ray to determine the problem. South Anchorage Dental provides a free exam to assess the problem, meaning you don’t have to worry about costs as well as your health.

You can read more about the types of things that may be considered dental emergencies on our blog. We've covered chipped, cracked, or broken teeth, loose or knocked-out teeth, and loose or missing fillings or crowns. We've also covered swollen mouth or jaw, infection or abscessed teeth, tissue injuries or bleeding gums, exposed nerves, and general toothache.
