$39 Emergency Exam in Chattanooga, TN

Limited/Emergency Exams are the perfect place to come up with a plan to fix the issue quickly.  The focus is on getting you out of pain and stabilizing situations.  There are some situations that can be fixed day of, but the focus is stabilization and pain management.  Everyone and every situation is different and needs to be evaluated.  We offer a $39 exam and necessary x-rays for the Emergency Exam for people without insurance.  We also have a $99 prophy cleaning, full exam and x-ray offer for New Patients that don't have emergency problems and are more interested in getting a comprehensive treatment plan.*

The Process

During your appointment, our focus is on examining and stabilizing your dental issue. This includes a targeted examination and any immediate treatment necessary to stabilize your condition, such as pain relief or temporary measures.  We will also come up with a treatment plan and schedule that appointment down for definitive treatment.

Based on the findings from your Emergency/Limited Exam, and the treatment plan we developed to handle this specific concern, we will carry out the treatment and any follow-ups.  This section is a bit ambiguous because of the wide range of possibilities here.  People even sometimes change over to a Comprehensive Exam first at this point.

After addressing the immediate concern, we recommend transitioning to a Comprehensive Exam for a full assessment of your overall oral health. This thorough examination is key to identifying and addressing any broader or underlying dental issues, ensuring a comprehensive approach to your dental care.

FAQ

Unlike a Comprehensive Exam, which provides an overall assessment of your dental health, an Emergency/Limited Exam targets a specific problem area. While it's perfect for urgent care, it does not replace the thoroughness of a Comprehensive Exam for overall dental health evaluation.

During this exam, our team at Shallowford Smiles will focus on your immediate concern. We'll perform a targeted examination of the affected area, which may include digital X-rays or other diagnostic tests, to quickly identify the problem and suggest treatment options.  We will present a treatment plan, and our goal is to stabilize and re-appoint, but we do try to get everyone in within 1 week for definitive treatment.

No, this exam is specifically for addressing acute dental issues and is not a substitute for regular dental check-ups. For complete oral health maintenance, we recommend scheduling a Comprehensive Exam.

If you experience a dental emergency, contact Shallowford Smiles immediately. Our team is equipped to handle urgent dental needs and will strive to see you as soon as possible.

We understand the urgency of dental emergencies and make every effort to see patients as quickly as possible. As such we offer convenient online scheduling so you can see if there is a time that works for you right now.  If you have questions, or need to talk to someone over the phone please contact our office in Chattanooga, TN, for prompt assistance and scheduling. 

Coverage for emergency dental exams varies by insurance provider. We recommend checking with your insurance for specifics. Our office staff can assist with any insurance and payment queries.

Absolutely. Following your Emergency/Limited Exam, we can schedule a Comprehensive Exam to evaluate your overall dental health and address any other concerns that may not be covered in the limited exam, and get you on a regular cleaning and maintenance cycle.

Treatment recommendations depend on the specific issue diagnosed during the exam. This may range from prescriptions for pain or infection to more immediate interventions like fillings, extractions, or referrals for specialized care.  This is a very difficult question to answer unfortunately and is tailored to each person individually.

Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene, and wearing protective gear during sports can reduce the risk of dental emergencies. However, should an unforeseen issue arise, Shallowford Smiles is here to provide prompt and effective emergency care.
