Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of your emergency dental visit depends on a variety of factors, including what type of treatment you require, whether you need dental sedation, and if you need a follow-up appointment. We recommend that patients visit us as soon as they experience any unexpected oral discomfort, because the longer you wait to have an issue treated, the more damage it could cause.


How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

While it’s impossible to completely prevent a dental emergency from occurring, there are some ways that you can reduce your risk of experiencing one, including:


  • Visit us every six months for your checkups and cleanings
  • Maintain a well-balanced diet and stay hydrated with water
  • Stick to a thorough at-home oral hygiene routine
  • Avoid chewing on excessively sticky or chewy foods
  • Protect your teeth from grinding or while playing sports
  • Never use your teeth to open a bottle, package, or anything else


Root Canals

Root canals are one of the most feared dental treatments, but the rumors that circulate about this procedure aren’t necessarily true. The pain associated with root canal therapy is really caused by the toothache that results from a dental infection. Once patients have been treated, their pain goes away, and they’re able to enjoy their natural tooth for years to come. Additionally, our team will ensure that you remain comfortable during your procedure by numbing the area and offering dental sedation.
