Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies
Until you’ve scheduled an appointment with our team, we can’t give you a reliable estimate for how much your emergency dental care is going to cost. That’s because every smile, and every oral health issue, is different. Naturally, treating a tooth infection with antibiotics is going to cost less than restoring a broken tooth with a crown. Before we move forward with any procedures, we’ll make sure you fully understand all of the associated costs to avoid any unpleasant surprises later on.
Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies
While it’s almost impossible to prevent 100% of dental emergencies, you can drastically cut your risk by maintaining a few simple habits. These include:
- Brushing your teeth with fluoridated toothpaste for two minutes twice a day.
- Flossing at least once a day.
- Seeing Dr. Kaiser at regular intervals for checkups so that she can diagnose dental problems before they turn into emergencies.
- Not chewing in hard, inedible objects that could fracture your teeth (ice cubes, fingernails, pens, etc.).
- Wearing a protective mouthguard if you grind your teeth at night or play sports.
