More and more Americans are turning to the emergency room for routine dental problems. This type of preventive care offers far fewer treatment options than a dentist’s office and can cost ten times the amount a regular visit may cost.Â Most of those emergency visits involve trouble such as toothaches that could have been avoided with regular checkups but went untreated.
In Florida alone, there were more than 115,000 ER dental visits in 2010, resulting in more than $88 million in charges. Many ER dental visits involve the same patients seeking additional care. But ERs aren’t usually staffed with dentists and can usually only offer pain relief and medicine for infected gums but not much more.
