How can we help you?
Patient education is an important part of the services we provide at Temple Dental Trails. We are always here to talk to you about your concerns and explain certain treatments and how they benefit your oral health.
We encourage your questions because we believe that the more information you have, the better equipped you are to make important decisions about your dental care. We've shared some of the questions we hear most frequently, but we welcome you to contact us if yours isn't listed here.
We accept most major PPO dental insurance and are in-network providers for the following plans:
Blue Cross/Blue Shield
Is your plan not listed?
We also file for many other PPO dental plans, so please feel free to contact our office for questions about your specific plan. Our Insurance Coordinator will be happy to go over the details of your insurance plan to help get the most out of your coverage. We will also help file your insurance claims, track them, and follow up on any claim delays. If you have any questions about your unique coverage, the best option is to visit our dental office for a consultation with the dentist to determine the treatments you need! Then, our experienced staff will be able to help you understand your coverage options.
We know that dental emergencies are often frightening and almost always painful. The first step is to contact our Temple dental office as soon as possible. Our emergency dentist in Temple, TX always reserves time to provide urgent care for patients.
If your dental emergency occurs during business hours, give our 76504 office a call, and we will get you in for treatment the same day. If it’s after hours, you can contact us at our emergency number (254) 300-8381. We will get back to you as quickly as possible.
In an emergency, there are some steps you can take before you get to our office for treatment:
Severe Tooth Pain
As you can guess, severe pain indicates a serious problem that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. You can use cold compresses on and off for 20 minutes to help reduce the pain until you get to our office.
Call our office immediately, because the sooner we see you, the better the chance we have of saving your tooth. Handle it by the crown and do not touch the root! It's important to keep the root moist, so you should place the tooth in milk or warm water until you get to our office.
Lost Dental Crown
In some cases, it is possible to re-cement the crown into place, so keep it safe until you arrive at our office. We do not recommend using over-the-counter cement to try to place the crown back on your tooth.
Note: If your emergency involves trauma to your face or head, call 911 or get to an emergency room immediately.
