The Most Common Dental Emergencies

What counts as a “true” dental emergency? Lots of things! You’ll find some common ones we see all the time below, but we recommend always giving us a call if you’re worried—better to be safe than sorry!

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The number one thing you shouldn’t do if you have a dental emergency is wait. This will allow whatever the problem is to get worse, which means it will require more expensive care to correct. Acting fast is the best approach for your health and wallet! And, we’ll clearly explain the associated costs to you before performing treatment, plus we’ll do everything we can to maximize your insurance benefits.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

The best kind of emergency treatment is prevention, which can be accomplished with a few simple practices:

  • Brush and floss every day to stop cavities, gum disease, and toothaches before they ever start.
  • Come see us every six months for a checkup so we can spot potential issues before they cause pain.
  • Avoid using your teeth as tools to open packages or bottles.
  • Be mindful when eating really hard foods.
  • Play smart and always wear a mouthguard for sports.
