It’s vital to have a dental emergency treated in a timely manner before it can lead to even more severe consequences. If you believe that you need emergency dental care, call us right away, and we’ll follow the four steps listed below to help you find relief:

  • Perform an Emergency Exam: What exactly is the source of the problem? How much damage has already been done? To answer these questions, we will need to carefully examine your mouth. (The issue may not always be immediately visible to the naked eye, so X-rays might have to be taken.)
  • Review Our Findings: You’ll be given a full overview of the results of our examination; we want you to understand exactly what is going on inside your mouth and what treatments can be used to address the problem.
  • Get the Care You Need: After a treatment plan has been agreed upon, we’ll take the necessary steps to help you regain a healthy grin.

The Most Common Dental Emergencies

There are plenty of oral health issues that can be considered emergencies, such as painful infections or any sort of injury to the enamel. Our dentists have the expertise to provide care in a wide variety of situations, but it definitely helps to be prepared for particularly common emergencies, such as those listed below.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

We can only give an estimate of the cost of treating your dental emergency once we’ve been able to examine your teeth and gums and figure out the extent of the damage. Some treatments will be more costly than others, but it’s important to have true dental emergencies taken care of right away; if they grow worse, they’ll only become more complex and even pricier to treat. Regardless of the problem, we’ll always aim to provide efficient, effective care that fits into your budget.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

  • Brush and floss after every meal, or at least twice a day to keep the teeth and gums clean and free of the bacteria that can lead to cavities.
  • Visit us twice a year for checkups so that small problems can be identified and treated early.
  • Get a custom mouthguard to protect your teeth while playing sports. Also, consider getting a nightguard if you grind your teeth while sleeping.
