Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

There’s no fixed amount that you can expect to pay for emergency dental care; the specific treatments you need will vary based on the type and severity of your emergency. One thing is certain, however – waiting too long for treatment will only make the problem worse and often costlier to treat. To make your urgent dental care more affordable, our dental office is in-network with all major dental insurance providers and will gladly file your claims. We also welcome CareCredit financing and offer our own in-house savings plan.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

It may seem like dental emergencies are out of your control, but the truth is that, with the right precautions, the vast majority of them are preventable. Make sure to:

  • Visit our dental office for six-month checkups so that we can identify potential emergencies early on.
  • Brush and floss every single day at home.
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects with your teeth (fingernails, ice cubes, pens, etc.).
  • Wear an athletic mouthguard if you play contact sports.
