Understanding Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, occur when the corners or sides of the nail dig painfully into the surrounding soft tissue. This condition most commonly affects the big toe but can occur on other toes as well.

Causes of ingrown toenails include:

  • Improperly-trimmed nails
  • Heredity
  • Shoe pressure or crowding of toes
  • Repeated trauma to the feet from normal activities
  • Infection surrounding the nail

Symptoms of Ingrown Toenails

  • Patients with ingrown toenails may experience the following symptoms:
  • Pain and tenderness along the nail border
  • Redness and swelling
  • Drainage
  • Infection surrounding the nail
  • Odor
  • Prominent skin tissue (proud flesh)

When You Should Seek Care with Us

If you experience any drainage, excessive redness, or if at-home treatments have not improved the condition, it's essential to seek professional care. If you have diabetes or poor circulation, you should seek immediate treatment at the first signs of an ingrown toenail, as it can lead to more severe complications.

Types of Treatment We Offer

Our skilled podiatrists will develop a personalized treatment plan for your ingrown toenail. Treatment options include:

In-Office Procedures

Ingrown toenails are typically treated with minor in-office procedures where the doctor trims and removes the ingrown portion of the nail. If ingrown nails are a chronic problem, a procedure to permanently prevent ingrown nails in the affected area can be performed. Recovery is minimal and relatively painless.

Insurance Coverage for Ingrown Toenail Treatment

Many insurance plans cover treatments for ingrown toenails if they're medically necessary, which means your podiatrist has recommended them to treat this foot condition. However, coverage varies. Some plans may not cover the entire cost of the treatment, or may only cover part of it.

Before getting treatment for an ingrown toenail, it's a good idea to check with your insurance provider. Ask about your coverage and any costs you might have to pay.

At Modern Foot & Ankle, we're here to help. We're proud to be in-network with all major insurance plans, which can make the process smoother and more affordable for you. Our team can assist you in understanding your coverage and guide you through the process. We're committed to providing you with personalized care, including treatments for ingrown toenails designed to alleviate your discomfort and improve your foot health.
