Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of treating a dental emergency comes down to the treatments needed to fix the problem, and these will be different depending on a child’s situation. A small filling costs less than extracting a tooth, for example. Of course, we’ll go over the price of any proposed treatments before providing any care so you know what to expect, and we’ll also discuss how we can use your dental insurance or Medicaid to make things as affordable as possible.

Keys to Preventing Children’s Dental Emergencies

Prevention is the best medicine, especially when it comes to dental emergencies! To lower the chances that you’ll need to bring your child in for a “surprise” visit, take these tips to heart:

  • Make sure your child always wears a mouthguard while playing sports.
  • Daily brushing and flossing will stop cavities before they turn into toothaches.
  • Don’t let your child chew on ice or try to open packages with their teeth.
  • Keep up with their checkups and cleanings so we can treat little problems before they turn into big emergencies.
