The Most Common Dental Emergencies

Sometimes, it can be hard to tell when a dental issue needs urgent attention. However, because teeth cannot heal themselves, the problem will likely only get worse without treatment. Just to be on the safe side, call us right away if you find yourself with any of the following common dental emergencies:

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Every patient’s situation is unique, so the cost of emergency dentistry isn’t set in stone. Depending on the cause and severity of your injury, you might only need something as simple as a filling, or maybe you need multiple teeth extracted and replaced. Naturally, these treatments come at varying price points. Before we begin any procedure, our team will review the costs of your care. We accept several dental insurance plans and offer CareCredit financing as well as our own dental membership plan.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

  • If you play sports, wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth from becoming broken or knocked out.
  • Wear a nightguard if you grind your teeth while sleeping. This will prevent your enamel from getting worn down and prone to fracture.
  • Every day, brush your teeth at least twice and floss at least once to keep plaque at bay.
  • Meet with Dr. Cromer for routine checkups every six months so that she can spot and treat potential emergencies early on.
