Dental 911! Coverage and an After-Hours Emergency

by Jason 6/23/2015 7:20 AM

No one wishes for a knocked-out tooth. But the truth is – it can happen. Expect the unexpected! In case of a (dental) emergency:

1.     STOP and dial your dentist. Your regular dentist should be your first call. Find out how to contact him or her after normal office hours and save it in your cell.

2.     DROP your pain level as soon as possible. Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and/or any bleeding.

3.     ROLL with your dentist's advice. You may need to have an emergency office visit.

A dental emergency can take place anywhere. If you happen to be on vacation when a tooth terror strikes, find an in-network dentist in the area. This will ensure lower out-of-pocket costs.
