How We Treat Dental Emergencies

When it comes to treating dental emergencies, you must first call to schedule an appointment. A member of our team will work to get you in right away so that you can begin to receive treatment as soon as possible. Once in our dental office, we will take digital images so that Dr. B can determine if any damage exists beneath the gumline. After identifying the areas of concern, a formalized treatment plan will be created so that we can review it with you. At this point, we will begin to administer treatment to fix the damage or infection and get you out of any pain.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of dental emergencies cannot be determined until you meet with Dr. B. Because there are so many different injuries that can occur, the type of treatment you will need can only be reviewed and discussed once we’ve performed a thorough examination. No matter the extent to which you need proper care, you can trust that we will work to maximize your dental insurance benefits and/or go over additional payment options to keep your out-of-pocket expenses low.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

You want to avoid a trip to the emergency dental office, but you’re unsure what you can do to be more proactive about safeguarding your smile. You can:

  • Keep up with your six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings with Dr. B.
  • Maintain good oral hygiene habits at home by brushing twice daily, flossing at least once a day, and rinsing with an antimicrobial mouthwash.
  • Wear a mouthguard to protect against serious damage.
  • Avoid unhealthy habits like smoking and biting down on hard, inanimate objects.
  • Get help for teeth grinding and clenching.
  • Stop using your teeth as tools.
