How We Treat Dental Emergencies

  • Schedule your appointment right away – As soon as you notice a dental problem that needs immediate attention, please call us. When you do, one of our team members will ask you questions about what you’re going through, evaluate the urgency of the situation, book a visit accordingly, and provide pain-management tips in the interim. 
  • Identify the problem – During your appointment, one of our dentists will examine the area of your mouth that is bothering you to determine the cause of the issue. Additionally, they’ll relieve any immediate pain you might be feeling.
  • Discuss your treatment options – After the exam, our dentists will break down what they found and give you a thorough picture of how it’s impacting your oral health. They’ll then suggest a plan to treat the problem and prevent it from arising again later on.
  • Start restoring your smile – Once we’ve discussed the estimated costs and timeline that come with your treatment, we can move forward and begin repairing your smile.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Not all dental emergencies are the same, so the cost of treating them can be quite different from one patient to another. An aching tooth, for example, might be fixed with a simple filling, or it may require a more extensive and costly treatment like root canal therapy. Regardless of what your smile needs, we’ll make sure you’re fully aware of the costs associated with your care beforehand. We also take most dental insurance plans and offer CareCredit financing.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Taking a few simple precautions can help keep your smile out of harm’s way. Remember to:

  • Prevent small dental problems from getting worse by brushing and flossing every day and seeing us for your six-month checkups and cleanings.
  • Safeguard your teeth by asking us about a night guard if you grind your teeth during sleep, wearing a mouthguard if you regularly play sports, and not using your teeth to open containers or packages.
  • Try to avoid chewing or biting on hard items that could chip or crack your teeth, such as pencils or ice cubes.
