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.

Solutions: 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.
