We’ll provide you with over-the-phone first aid guidance and schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible. Once you arrive, we’ll capture X-rays of your mouth and conduct a visual examination to determine what type of treatment is required to ease your discomfort and restore your smile.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of your emergency visit will depend on the type of treatment you require, which our team will discuss with you once we’ve had an opportunity to examine your mouth and diagnose the damage or underlying issues. Some treatments may be as simple as a dental filling, while others could require more extensive procedures like a tooth extraction, which would cost more. In any case, our team is happy to help you navigate your dental insurance benefits and do our best to stick within your budget.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

While it’s impossible to avoid ever experiencing a dental emergency, there are some steps you can take to drastically reduce your chances of needing an unexpected visit with your emergency dentist. Some of these include:

  • Visit us bi-annually for routine checkups and cleanings.
  • Maintain a good at-home oral hygiene routine.
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects out of stress or habit, like pencils.
  • Wear a nightguard if you grind or clench your teeth.
  • Maintain a well-balanced diet.
