Different emergencies call for different types of treatment, so the cost of emergency dental care can vary significantly from patient to patient. Rest assured that our top priority is your oral health; when we recommend a given service, it’s because it’s the best option available for restoring and protecting your teeth and gums. Feel free to let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the cost of your care.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

The best type of emergency is one you can avoid altogether. We highly recommend brushing and flossing every day to protect your teeth from decay. If you visit our office twice a year for a checkup and cleaning, we can remove plaque and tartar from the areas you’ve missed while brushing on your own. And while you can’t always predict when an accident will happen, wearing a mouthguard while playing sports and dropping habits that are hard on your teeth (such as chewing fingernails) can help lower the risk.
