How We Treat Dental Emergencies

We encourage you to call our dental office and inquire about an appointment as soon as the injury occurs. We will listen to you and determine how quickly you should come in while also delivering first-aid tips you can use until it’s time for your appointment. Once in our office, our team will immediately begin to take images of your teeth to determine where the problem exists and how best to treat it. After compiling diagnostic images and data, we will create a treatment plan that you can review. If everything appears to be to your liking, we will start the process of treating your dental injury.

The Most Common Dental Emergencies

If you’ve fractured your jawbone, have difficulty swallowing because of swelling, or have a wound that won’t stop bleeding, you’ll need to visit your local ER right away. Otherwise, we invite you to review the following information to learn more about the common dental emergencies that we can treat in-house.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

A knocked-out tooth or lost dental crown will have different price tags based on various factors that we will determine during your appointment. But one thing you can be certain of is that seeking professional help right away is the best course of action. Choosing to wait will only cause the issue to worsen, leading to more significant and complex treatment. Our team will work with you to determine how to keep your expenses low while working to improve the health and function of your smile.
