The Most Common Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency could be the result of poor oral hygiene, or it might be a consequence of getting hit in the mouth during an accident. If you’re not sure what counts as a dental emergency, below is a list of some of the most common examples. Of course, you can also call our dental office to describe your symptoms and see if an appointment is necessary.



Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

How much will your dental emergency ultimately cost to treat? That’s a question that can’t be answered until we’ve examined your mouth; some cases require more extensive treatments than others, and a cost estimate can only be arrived at once we fully understand the situation. We won’t try to push you into getting any treatments you don’t need; we’ll explain exactly why we’re making each recommendation, and we’ll give you an estimate to work with upfront.



Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

You can’t avoid every accident, but you can take steps to lower the risk of something happening to your smile. If you brush and floss every day (and keep up with regular dental cleanings), you can get rid of the plaque that may eventually lead to tooth infection. To protect your teeth from damage, give up bad habits like chewing your nails or crunching ice. Invest in a mouthguard if you play sports of any kind or if you grind and clench your teeth at night.
