  • Same-Day Appointment: We will always make an effort to see you as soon as we can when emergency dental care is needed. Be sure to follow any first-aid instructions that our team gives you over the phone.
  • Emergency Exam: Upon your arrival at our office, we will take a close look at your teeth and gums in order to get a clear picture of the problem. If you’re in pain, we’ll take steps to help you find relief.
  • Review Findings: We’ll let you know what the underlying cause of your emergency is. Then we’ll begin the process of putting together a treatment plan. Whenever we recommend a service, we will give you an estimate of the timeline and the cost.
  • Give Your Smile the Care It Needs: After a treatment has been agreed upon, we can take whatever steps are needed to restore your oral health.

The Most Common Dental Emergencies

It’s hard to give a definition of “dental emergency” that perfectly describes every oral health issue that requires urgent attention. In general, we recommend calling our office if you’re suffering from significant oral pain or if your teeth have been damaged. Listed below are some of the most common dental emergencies that we can help our patients with.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Treating a dental emergency can be as simple as placing a filling. In other cases, though, root canal treatment or even a tooth extraction may be necessary. The overall cost of emergency dental care is largely shaped by the specific type of treatment you need for your particular dental issue. Fortunately, we can give you an estimate after we have taken a close look at your mouth and identified the underlying problem. We’ll also keep you informed of your options for making your care more affordable.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

While there’s no way to completely guarantee that a dental emergency will never happen, you can protect your smile by following these simple steps:

  • Practice good oral hygiene by brushing two or three times daily.
  • Floss every day to stop plaque from building up between your teeth.
  • Eat more foods that promote oral health while reducing your sugar intake.
  • Keep your mouth safe while playing sports by always wearing a mouthguard.
  • Don’t use your teeth as tools when trying to open a package.
  • Schedule a checkup and cleaning with our team once every six months.
