Afraid You Can’t Afford Dental Work in Houston, TX?

Greetings Houston! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of the Antoine Dental Center. It seems like just yesterday we we’re decorating for Halloween. Now Christmas is right around the corner! But today we want to talk about some thematically related to Halloween: fear.

Many people fear visiting the dentist. For some the fear stems from the sights and sounds of the office. Others are afraid of undergoing treatments that cause them discomfort. But for many the fear stems from something else entirely: they are afraid they can’t afford the dental care they need and deserve.

At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we believe all patients deserve a healthy and beautiful smile. We never want someone to avoid undergoing dental work because they are afraid that they can’t afford it. For that reason, we are proud to offer financing solutions and a dental discount plan. In today’s post, we’re going to tell you about how we go the extra mile to make dental care accessible for everyone.

But first, we want you to consider the cost of not visiting the dentist. If you’ve ever had a toothache, it may seem tempting to simply take a pain-reliever and hope your discomfort goes away. But oftentimes, a toothache is a sign from your tooth that something is wrong with it.

Many toothaches are caused by infections. Infections can often be removed from a tooth, and the tooth restored to health, through a pain-free root canal. But if the infection is left unchecked, it jeopardizes your entire oral health. Your infection may get to the point that we have to remove the tooth to prevent the from spreading to your other teeth. Then you either have to live with a gap in your smile or have the tooth removed.

Routine dental care is a great way to ensure the health of your smile. But it can also save you a lot of time, money, and discomfort! At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we’re proud to make dental care affordable for all our patients. We accept all major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

We also accept most dental insurance plans. We can work with you to understand your dental benefits and help you maximize them. We’ll even help with the process of filing your insurance claim. We know understanding insurance plans can be overwhelming, so let the experts at the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX help!

We also offer two different financing solutions at our comfortable and modern office: CareCredit and Lending Club Patient Solutions.
