How We Treat Dental Emergencies
Upon receiving your call, one of our team members will take the time to learn more about your issue and the symptoms you’re experiencing. We can give you any first-aid tips you may need, and we’ll work to make room in our schedule (ideally on the same day) for an emergency dental appointment.
After you get to our dental practice, we won’t waste any time examining your mouth in order to narrow down what the issue is. We’ll go over our findings with you and create a treatment plan. When we recommend a service, we will also give you an estimate of how much it will cost. Once you have agreed to a treatment, we’ll move forward with the process of restoring and protecting your smile.
The Most Common Dental Emergencies
It’s not always clear which dental issues are urgent and which aren’t. Below are some examples of issues that our team can help you with. If you experience any of these problems, get in touch with us right away; we’ll listen carefully as you explain your circumstances, and we’ll help you figure out whether or not an emergency appointment will be needed to protect your oral health.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies
It’s important to note that there are several variables that can affect the amount you pay for emergency dental care. For one thing, many dental insurance plans may be willing to cover the cost of an emergency appointment. Furthermore, the nature of your dental emergency will determine the kind of treatment you need, and some services are more costly than others. Rest assured that our team members will work to make sure that you are able to get the care that your smile deserves without breaking the bank.
Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies
It’s impossible to completely eliminate the chances of dental issues occurring, but you will be less likely to need an emergency appointment if:
- You eat fewer sugary and starchy foods that can lead to tooth decay.
- You put a stop to habits that are bad for your oral health, such as smoking.
- You open packages with scissors instead of your teeth.
- You take the time to brush thoroughly at least two times a day.
- You visit our office twice a year for a preventive checkup and cleaning.
- You wear a mouthguard while playing sports. (You should also wear a nightguard if you suffer from nighttime teeth grinding.)
