Understanding the Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

It’s not certain how much you’ll end up paying for emergency care since every case is unique. No matter what the situation is, though, we’ll always focus on relieving your pain and fixing the damage done to your mouth as quickly as we can. The only procedures we recommend will be the ones deemed absolutely necessary, and we’ll always give you an estimate on what the cost will be depending on which services are required.


Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

While you’ll always have some level of risk for dental emergencies, you can prevent most problems by practicing good oral health habits. Maintain a steady oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing twice a day and visit our office for regular cleanings so that we can treat the areas that you’ve overlooked. To protect your teeth from physical damage, wear a mouthguard while playing sports and avoid biting on anything that’s extremely hard.
