  • Call to schedule an appointment: You will first need to call our dental office to speak to a member of our team. We will determine the severity of your dental emergency over the phone to find out if you should come in right away. We’ll work to get you in quickly but also provide first-aid tips to help manage your pain while at home.
  • Undergo a thorough dental exam: When you arrive, one of our skilled dentists will review your oral anatomy, taking diagnostic images and visually examining your mouth.
  • Compile and review findings: Once the examination is complete, we will collect our findings and review them to create a personalized dental treatment plan that we will then go over with you.
  • Administer appropriate dental treatment: If you agree to the proposed plan, we will quickly get to work to eliminate any pain and improve the health of your smile.

The Most Common Dental Emergencies

If you are unsure whether you are dealing with a dental emergency or not, it is always best to call and alert us to the situation.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of dental emergencies varies from person to person. There is no designated cost, as each situation is different. Once we can review your smile and determine the best course of action to treat it, we will formulate a treatment plan that includes how much you can expect your emergency dental care to cost. This will allow our team to then discuss the available payment options, including using your dental insurance or enrolling in our in-house membership plan.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Not all dental emergencies can be prevented, but some only require a few simple changes to your daily routine. Making sure you maintain good oral hygiene and keeping your six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings are essential. Eating a nutrient-rich diet and wearing a mouthguard while playing sports are just as important. You should also avoid using your teeth to open packages and containers, and you should also give up unhealthy habits like smoking, eating ice, and chewing on pens and pencils.
