reasons you should not go to the er for dental care
Reasons you should not go to the ER for Dental Care
  • If you or a family member are having dental problems, the most expensive place that you can go is the ER.
  • “A 2011 South Carolina Dental Association study estimated a single ER visit for toothache pain resulted in a Medicaid reimbursement of $236. The report found a dentist's office visit, which would include extraction of an infected tooth, would be about $107” stated USA Today.
  • The one thing ER doctors can do is prescribe narcotic pain medication, which unfortunately many people become addicted to.
  • The dental problem you are having is not going to be able to be solved in the ER, they will only be able to reduce the pain for a short while.

  • In order to avoid being caught off guard by a dental problem and not having anywhere to turn but the ER, look now for an inexpensive, but reliable dentist in your area.
  • Have money set aside every month that is specifically for emergency dental care, if needed.
  • Add dental insurance to the health insurance you already have.
  • If you have Medicaid and they do not offer dental, see if you can obtain just dental from an insurance company.
