Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies
Until we examine your mouth, it’s impossible to know exactly how much your emergency treatment will cost. After our evaluation, we’ll be able to provide a more accurate estimate of your costs and the treatments you’ll need to get your oral health back on track. We’ll never begin a treatment without first explaining our estimated expenses beforehand. With that said, visiting our office for a dental emergencies is relatively affordable compared to medical emergencies. Keep in mind that putting off your care can lead to higher costs down the road and even worse dental damage.
How to Prevent Dental Emergencies
Preventing a dental emergency is always more ideal than treating one that comes up. Not only is it cheaper, but it enables you to avoid the discomfort and uncertainty that often occurs. While we encourage you to invest in routine dental checkups every six months, it’s also important to brush and floss at home, wear protective mouthguards if you grind your teeth or play contact sports, and never use your teeth as a tool (which can easily crack or chip your enamel).
