Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of emergency dentistry varies significantly from patient to patient. It truly depends on the severity of your unique situation. If you have a minor cavity that only needs a filling, you can expect to pay less than an advanced infection that needs an extraction. Of course, the only way to know for sure how much your treatment will cost is by visiting our emergency dentist for an appointment.  We’ll examine your mouth, work with you to create a treatment plan, and discuss your price estimate and financing options.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time
  • Floss at least once daily
  • Use a mouthguard to protect your pearly whites during physical activity
  • Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings
