How We Treat Dental Emergencies

Of course, each dental emergency is unique. For this reason, priority number one is conducting an exam to determine the root of the issue as well as what the next best steps are. We will review all of this information with you and the associated costs beforehand to ensure your experience at our office is as smooth and stress-free as possible. If you’re struggling to stay calm, we can also offer you sedation dentistry to alleviate any nerves before starting your treatment.

It’s natural for patients to be curious about the cost of emergency dental care. However, there isn’t a flat fee since each patient’s needs are unique. While the necessary treatment will be one of the biggest factors that influence the final price, our team would be more than happy to share all of the financial solutions available to make it as affordable as possible. For example, we are in-network with several popular dental insurance providers (including Delta Dental, UnitedHealthcare, Cigna, and Guardian), we have a membership plan, and we welcome flexible financing!

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Although dental injuries aren’t 100% preventable, there are a few best practices you can implement into your daily routine to reduce your chances of experiencing one. Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing consistently, and not eating sugar in excess are a few examples. It’s also a good idea to wear a mouthguard if you play a sport or chronically grind your teeth. And, as always, visit your dentist every six months so they can catch problems like decay before they have a chance to become a full-blown dental emergency.
