Our team will assist you as quickly as possible to ensure you get the relief you deserve. In the meantime, we’ve included some helpful tips below on how to deal with the most common dental emergencies we see.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

No two cases are the same, which is why it’s impossible to predict the cost of your dental emergency until you come in for an exam. The type of care you need will depend solely on the nature and extent of your problem. Rest assured – our team will thoroughly explain the pricing information and your available financing options to ensure you know what to expect. The last thing we want is for you to find surprises on your bill!


How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies aren’t entirely preventable, but there are many steps you can take to significantly lower your risk of one occurring. Avoiding particularly tough or sticky foods can help patients lessen their risk of experiencing a dental emergency, as can wearing a sports guard when participating in athletic events. Most importantly, make sure to attend regular check-ups with our staff! We can help you prevent small areas of damage from developing into serious concerns in the future.
