How Many Dentists Are in Ledgewood?

Overall, Roxbury Township (of which Ledgewood is a part) has a decent supply of dentists. A rough estimate puts the number at around two dozen or so.


Still, Dr. McCleaster is one of the best possible options you can find in the area. He’s consistently ranked as a Top Dentist by NJ Top Dentists, a division of USA Top Docs. His office has also achieved 50+ 5-star ratings on Google Reviews. In light of these achievements, Dr. McCleaster is a truly outstanding dental care provider.


How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Naturally, your first step should be to call our practice. One of our staff will answer and guide you through the situation. In most cases, we’ll book you for a same-day appointment. Doing so ensures you get the necessary care without delay. (If your condition is life-threatening, though, call 911 immediately.)


At the same time, note that dental emergencies can indicate “bigger” oral issues. They’re thus a sign that you should see a dentist more often. With regular checkups, you’ll prevent future problems and save yourself time, money, and hassle. You’ll also be likely to keep your natural teeth!


How Much Does It Cost to Get a Tooth Pulled Without Insurance?

Ultimately, a tooth extraction’s cost varies from patient to patient. Treatment price depends on geography, oral health, and similar factors. As such, you’ll need to consult a dentist in-person for an exact estimate.


All that said, the average fee for tooth extraction in the U.S. is between $150 and $400. This baseline can also rise based on treatment complexity and the need for additional services. Furthermore, wisdom teeth are more expensive to pull than other ones. Without insurance, then, you should expect the extraction price to be at least a few hundred dollars.


What is the best way to find a cosmetic dentist?

Technically, no single designation qualifies one as a cosmetic dentist. The title refers more to a dental provider’s focus than their education. Even so, there are a few things to consider when looking for a specialist in cosmetic dentistry.


For starters, learn what memberships a dentist has. You’d do especially well to find one with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. As it happens, dentists in this group have exceptional aesthetic skills and experience. You can trust them to make your smile truly beautiful!
