Dental Emergencies on Medicaid: Are You Covered?

Life happens and sometimes it happens when you least expect it. Dental emergencies can sneak up on you or your family at a moment’s notice. They can come from an injury or accident or they can happen because of a problem in your mouth you didn’t even know you had. 

If you have Medicaid for you or your family members, you don’t have to worry about finding an emergency dentist that takes Medicaid. Ohio Medicaid covers dental emergencies for children and adults. At Beechcroft Dental, if you’re experiencing a serious issue or dental emergency, we can help by providing care day or night.

Dental Emergencies and You

Dental emergencies can come in many forms. Most commonly, people get into accidents or have injuries that affect their teeth or gums. Kids fall off their bikes or run into something while adults can have sports injuries or more serious events like vehicular accidents.

Other times, people experience infections or something like a cracked tooth that turn into emergencies with excruciating pain that comes out of nowhere. Leaving these symptoms untreated can seriously impact your health. That’s why you shouldn’t hesitate if you’re having a dental emergency and have Medicaid coverage.

Emergency dental visits may be required if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  1. A broken or lost tooth
  2. Extreme pain in or near your gums and jaw
  3. Oral injury or trauma from an accident
  4. A tooth or gum infection
