The Most Common Dental Emergencies

So what exactly constitutes a dental emergency? If you’re not quite sure, here are some of the most common situations where our team would recommend immediate care. The moment you experience a dental emergency, you should give us a call. Until you arrive at our office, you can learn how to improve your situation and comfort levels beforehand.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies largely vary in cost mainly because we won’t know what is needed until you complete an exam. From there, we can determine if you need a cleaning and dental filling, a dental crown, root canal therapy, or another service. All of these treatments come with their own unique costs. No matter what your needs might be, we will always prioritize getting you out of discomfort and putting you on a treatment plan that addresses your emergency at the source. We also offer flexible financing options and accept nearly all major insurance plans, so you should never let costs get in the way of the urgent care you need.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Patients can reduce their risk of experiencing a dental emergency by exercising caution when eating tough or sticky foods, avoiding chewing ice, using scissors instead of teeth to open tricky packaging, wearing mouthguards when deemed necessary (such as once you’ve been diagnosed with bruxism/TMJ disorder or while playing sports), and attending routine check-ups and cleanings every six months.
