Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Seeing a dentist for your emergency will make a big difference compared to not visiting at all. Depending on the extent of your emergency, you may only need a simple prescription to treat your infection. In other cases, you may need more advanced forms of treatment such as a root canal or extraction. By coming in to see our dental experts, you can confirm exactly what treatments you need, rather than wait and allow your condition to get worse!

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Thankfully, there are ways to prevent dental emergencies from occurring in the first place. When plain in contact sports, always make sure to wear a mouthguard. Avoid using your teeth as a tool to open packages or bottles, which can easily lead to chipped teeth.

The most important step you can take is committing to at-home oral care and routine dental visits. These habits will help you prevent decay and help you catch dental issues before they turn into emergencies.
