Some of the most common emergency procedures include:
- Root canal treatment
- Dental crowns
- Other restorative solutions to rebuild a tooth
Unbearable toothaches are symptomatic of progressive tooth decay and gum disease. If these conditions continue to go untreated, you can develop an infection or abscess. Abscesses can spread and become very serious without proper intervention, which usually comes in the form of root canal therapy followed by a dental crown.
The procedures listed above are examples of what is known in the insurance world as “basic” and “major” procedures. Dental insurance typically covers these types of treatments, as well as checkups, professional cleanings, X-rays, and other procedures classified as preventive. Some insurance providers may even offer emergency or urgent care provisions.
In the event of an emergency, dental insurance may not cover all the costs associated with treatment in Chicago, even if these procedures are considered medically necessary. In these cases, Big Smile Dental offers a number of other payment options to relieve the cost burden, including interest-free financing. Don’t wait for the worst to happen.
