Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Depending on the specific dental emergency, the price of your care can vary. For instance, treating a toothache by prescribing a round of antibiotics will cost less than doing so with an advanced procedure like root canal treatment. One thing is certain, though; waiting too long for emergency dental care can worsen the problem, causing you to need expensive treatments. Seeing our team right away can benefit your wallet in addition to your smile!

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

One easy way to save money on emergency dental care is to avoid it in the first place! While that’s not always feasible, you can lessen your risk by:

  • Protecting your teeth with a mouthguard if you play sports
  • Wearing a nightguard if you grind your teeth while sleeping
  • Brushing and flossing every day
  • Keeping your six-month dental checkups
  • Not using your teeth to open packaging, bottles, etc.
