At Bagley Family Dental, we understand that the cost of dentistry can be a concern for our patients, and we try to help them meet their needs with a treatment plan that will fit into their budgets - without breaking the bank.

Just like you, we also don't like financial surprises. We'll review the cost of your treatment with you so that you’re aware of what your dental insurance might cover before doing any procedures. This ensures that you have a clear understanding of your out-of-pocket expense so you can make the appropriate payment arrangements.,

It is essential to understand that we can only estimate what your dental insurance will cover. The contract you have with your insurance is between them and you, and ultimately, you're responsible for any part of the cost they do not cover. With that said, we do our best to give you a very accurate estimate of what your out-of-pocket cost will be. We are also happy to file claims on your behalf.

If you are interested in paying for your dental treatment over time with monthly payments, we work with CareCredit, who can finance it for you. CareCredit even has some plans that are interest-free for patients who qualify.

If you have questions about your treatment plan or your payment options, never hesitate to contact Bagley Family Dental.

At Bagley Family Dental, ensuring you receive comfortable dental treatment is a top priority for our entire team. Our Greeley dental office is warm, welcoming, and acts with your best interest in mind. You'll always be greeted with a smile when you walk through the door.

Dr. Bagley is a skilled dentist who works with the latest technology to provide you with treatment procedures that are more streamlined and comfortable for you. As an example, we use digital x-rays to deliver images of your teeth and mouth quickly and more accurately. We also use special electric hand tools to make root canal treatment quicker and more comfortable for our patients.

Using the highest quality dental anesthetics, your Greeley dentist ensures that you don't feel anything during your dental treatment.

Patients who might need a little extra assistance feeling comfortable during procedures may benefit from using nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is a gas that is administered safely and comfortably through a mask that can help you feel more relaxed during most types of procedures. The best part is that it can be done without any lingering side effects.

If there's anything we can do to make your visit Bagley Family Dental more pleasant, we encourage you to let us know. Contact our Greeley dental office today at (970) 353-5664 to schedule your next appointment.

Children's Dentistry

Absolutely! We love seeing children at Bagley Family Dental. We also encourage parents to accompany their children into the treatment room so that Dr. Bagley can discuss their oral development and answer any questions parents might have. When done properly, this also creates a more comfortable environment for your child.

Children can have their first visit to their Greeley children's dentist as early as one year old. This gives Dr. Bagley a chance to examine their teeth and make parents aware of any concerns at as young of an age as possible. It also allows Dr. Bagley to teach parents about what to expect as their children grow.

We also provide additional services for children as they get older - like fluoride treatments and dental sealants. We use these procedures to strengthen your son's or daughter's growing teeth and to protect them from tooth decay.

If your child feels anxious about dental procedures, we offer sedation with nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe for children. Nitrous oxide is a gas that helps "take the edge off” of any anxiety that your child might have. This allows your children to feel relaxed and at ease during their dental procedures. Let Dr. Bagley know if you think your child would benefit from using nitrous oxide during their dental visits.

We know that it's more convenient for families to see one dentist in Greeley, so if it's time for your next dental visit, please call Bagley Family Dental at (970) 353-5664.

Dental Implants

Modern dentistry offers excellent solutions for tooth replacement with dental bridges, dentures, and tooth implants. Greeley dentist, Dr. Andrew Bagley, can help you determine which option is right for your needs when you come to Bagley Family Dental for an evaluation.

A dental bridge uses two crowns to permanently anchor one or more replacement teeth in your mouth. A bridge is made of ceramic porcelain, so it complements your smile. It is also a fixed appliance that doesn't move when you talk or eat.

A full denture or a partial denture restores multiple missing teeth, even an entire arch. Complete dentures are traditionally removable and designed to replace all of your teeth, while partial dentures have artificial teeth attached to them that function to fill in the gaps between your natural teeth.

A dental implant replaces both your tooth root and your tooth crown, while restoring your functional ability and your beautiful smile. Dental implants protect your dental health by keeping your jawbone stimulated. Choosing a dental implant is essentially like getting a brand new tooth since it will look, function, and feel just like your natural tooth did. Dental implants can be used to restore multiple missing teeth by supporting appliances like bridges, partials, and dentures.

Tooth implants give denture wearers better stability and support than they have ever before experienced since there is no movement or slippage when you talk or eat.

Emergency Dentistry

Whether it's a broken tooth, a knocked-out tooth, or dental pain you are dealing with, we always encourage our patients to contact Bagley Family Dental right away during a dental emergency in Greeley. We try to see our emergency patients as soon as we can, usually arranging same-day appointments, to help you get the relief you need.

A broken tooth can often be repaired with a dental filling or a dental crown. Dr. Bagley also provides root canal treatment for an infected tooth or an abscessed tooth. He can also perform tooth extractions for teeth that cannot be saved.

Bagley Family Dental offers evening hours two Wednesdays each month. We do this to make it easy for you to get the dentistry you need when you need it most. Even if you've never been to our Greeley dental office before, we want you to call us if you have a dental emergency. If you reach out to our office after our regular business hours, you'll hear instructions on how you can get in contact with a member of our team - usually Dr. Bagley, himself – to find help for your dental emergency.

If you or a loved one is experiencing dental pain or any other kind of dental emergency, please don't hesitate to contact Bagley Family Dental at (970) 353-5664 for prompt emergency dental care in Greeley, CO.

General Dentistry

There is not a simple answer to this question. Dr. Bagley uses x-rays and state-of-the-art technology to diagnose dental concerns in their earliest stages. If you're proactive about completing your treatment, it will often save you time, money, and discomfort. In general, your dental treatment will never be less expensive or less painful than it is on the day Dr. Bagley discusses treatment options with you – it only becomes more expensive while the likelihood of dental pain increases.

Ultimately, it is up to you to decide when to complete your recommended treatment. However, the longer you wait, the more complicated and expensive it can get.

For example, if your Greeley dentist detects tooth decay in its early stages, you can likely restore your tooth with a simple dental filling. If the decay goes untreated, it will progress and get worse, eventually moving into the root canal chamber inside your tooth, where it results in a tooth infection. At this stage, you would need root canal treatment to get rid of your infection and preserve your tooth. Additionally, you would need to restore your tooth with a dental crown to make it strong again — much more complicated treatment for a tooth that you could've initially treated with a dental filling. Allowing it to progress even further might require a tooth extraction, followed by a dental implant.

If time or cost is a concern for you, we're happy to work with you to help you economically and efficiently complete your treatment. We also work with companies like CareCredit to divide the cost of treatment into manageable monthly payments.
