Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of your treatment varies depending on the procedure needed to resolve your dental issue. While some emergencies can be managed with simple measures (such as removing decay and placing a filling), others require more involved treatment (such as root canal therapy to treat a dental infection causing discomfort). While all dental services have their own respective costs, we’re happy to create a treatment plan that fits within your budget. The last thing you should do is put off care you need simply because of cost, because this could lead to more expenses later.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

The majority of dental emergencies can be prevented when you practice brushing and flossing every day and maintain routine dental checkups, but there are other tips worth keeping in mind as well. For example, make sure to:

  • Avoid chewing on inedible objects (i.e. packages, pens, pencils, fingernails)
  • Avoid chewing ice cubes
  • Wear a mouthguard when playing sports
  • Wear a nightguard if you grind your teeth while sleeping
  • Use caution when chewing hard or crunchy foods
