How do I get emergency dental care?
To determine where you should turn for help, you need to first figure out if you need medical attention. For example, if you are having difficulty breathing, you’ve fractured your jaw, or you are experiencing another potentially life-threatening symptom, then call 911 or head to your local ER. If, on the other hand, you are dealing with a dental injury like a persistent toothache, loose filling, or knocked-out tooth, then the best first step is to call our office. Once we have a better understanding of your situation, we will schedule a time for you to come in for treatment and share how you should handle your dental injury until you arrive.

How much does a dental checkup & cleaning cost in Keller?
While the national average is between $200 and $350, there are several factors that impact the amount you pay. Two key ones are: whether or not you need X-rays and if you have dental insurance. Don’t worry – our team will make understanding the cost as simple and straightforward as possible.
Important note: studies from notable sources like
The Journal of Dental Medicine

Furthermore, healthy teeth and gums are essential for a beautiful smile and healthy bite – they can even impact your speaking patterns! So, if you’re worried about the cost, don’t just skip your appointment. Instead, talk to our team about the financial solutions available, like CareCredit.
What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?
Over the years, dentistry has gained a reputation for being expensive. In reality, it’s not taking care of your smile that’s expensive! For example, if you skip your biannual checkup and cleaning, then a small cavity can go untreated, progressing day by day. Before long, the decay can develop to the point where it’s painful to chew and the nerve of the tooth has died. At this point, a more extensive treatment is needed, which requires a higher investment than a simple filling.
With all that said, it’s important for our patients to know that we offer several financial solutions designed to make your care as affordable as possible. To learn more about them, contact our team!
