Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

It’s important to mention that the cost of treating a dental emergency will vary quite a bit from one patient to another. It all depends on the severity of the emergency and the specific treatments needed to address it. However, the last thing you should do is avoid seeking care out of worries about the cost. Waiting too long could cause the problem to worsen, ultimately requiring more expensive treatments overall. Our practice accepts most PPO dental insurance plans and offers CareCredit financing as well.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Most dental emergencies occur seemingly out of the blue, so it can be hard to prepare for them in advance. However, preventing dental emergencies becomes easier as long as you take some basic precautions, which include:

  • Schedule a dental checkup and cleaning every six months.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day.
  • Floss at least once per day.
  • Avoid chomping down on hard, brittle foods and other objects that could break your teeth (hard candy, fingernails, ice cubes, etc.).
