If you’re curious about dental care, we encourage you to contact our office. This is the only way you can get precise answers to your questions. At the same time, we want our patients to have easy access to the information they need, which is why we’ve included the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about dentistry in general. Read on to satisfy your curiosity!
How much does a dental check-up & cleaning cost in Wakefield?
The cost of your routine checkups and cleanings will vary based on your geography and your own oral health. Typically, if you have dental insurance, your plan will be able to cover these visits 100%. These appointments include X-Rays, oral cancer screenings, and addressing any concerns you may have. Without dental insurance, the average market costs between $200 and $350.
How do I get emergency dental care?
The first step is to contact our office immediately. Typically, we’ll be able to see you on the same day of your dental emergency. If you believe your issue is life-threatening, go to the nearest urgent care facility right away. For other emergencies like chipped, cracked, or lost teeth, it’s best to visit our office because regular ER facilities won’t be equipped to treat these problems. We have sedation dentistry as well as numbing agents to ensure you’re comfortable. Once you get to our office, we’ll be able to provide you with pain relief!
How can I make a same-day appointment with a dentist?
The easiest way to make a same-day appointment is to call our office. Our friendly front desk staff will answer any questions you may have and walk through any emergency dentistry steps if they apply. Typically, we’ll be able to make room in our schedule to see you on the same day that you call us. We will be able to get you out of pain and schedule additional treatments if necessary.
What is the best way to find a dentist who does dental implants?
Dental implants are one of the most advanced tooth replacement options because they require surgery. That’s why it’s best to find a Board-Certified Prosthodontist for dental implants. These experts are highly trained in placing and restoring dental implants in even the toughest of cases. Luckily,
at Schumacher Dental, we have an in-house prosthodontist who can provide you with the best restorations available at the same location you receive checkups and cleanings.
What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?
At Schumacher Dental, we are committed to providing high quality dentistry that is also affordable. We accept dental insurance as well as alternative financing through CareCredit and Green Sky. If you have insurance, be sure to take advantage of your routine checkups to protect your smile from more costly and involved treatments. Without coverage, check for Medicare or Medicaid dental benefits. Plus, free/low-cost dental clinics do operate in some cities.
