Emergency dentistry looks different for everyone. The cost will vary depending on the type of treatment you need. Only when you come in for an appointment will we be able to determine how much you can expect to pay to repair your smile. It is our goal, however, as a locally owned and operated family dental practice to help patients improve their oral health without emptying their pockets. This is why we’ll be happy to file any claims on your behalf and help you get the maximum reimbursement from your dental insurance company.


Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Not all dental emergencies are preventable. However, there are proactive measures you can take that will reduce the chances of developing a nagging toothache or knocked-out tooth. Some of these include maintaining a good oral hygiene routine, keeping your regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings every six months with our team, wearing a mouthguard while playing sports or if you grind your teeth at night, eating healthy foods, limiting sugars and starches, and avoiding bad habits that can break down tooth enamel (i.e., biting fingernails, eating ice, chewing on inanimate objects, and smoking).
