Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

It is impossible for us to know how much your dental emergency treatment will cost unless you schedule an appointment with a member of our team. Using a series of factors to determine the type of care that is required as well as how much you can expect to pay for treatment, we will formulate an estimate that will allow you to better plan. We’ll work with your insurance company to maximize any benefits while also delivering options to help keep costs low if you do not have private dental insurance.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies cannot always be avoided, but you can be more mindful of what you eat, how you protect your teeth, your oral hygiene habits, whether you see your dentist, and how you use your teeth daily. If you want to make sure you aren’t spending your money on an emergency dental visit, keep these proactive steps in mind:

  • Regularly brush your teeth (twice each day) and floss (at least once a day).
  • Use an ADA-approved mouthwash to flush out any remaining bacteria.
  • Wear a custom mouthguard if you play sports.
  • Wear a custom nightguard if you suffer from bruxism.
  • Eat foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals, not those full of sugars and starches.
  • Never use your teeth as tools.
  • Quit smoking and engaging in other bad oral habits such as eating ice and biting your fingernails.
