How We Treat Dental Emergencies

When a dental emergency occurs, we ask that you call our office as soon as possible. To ensure you receive the care you need, we may conduct a short interview. This will help us to address the issue in a timely manner.

  • Scheduling an appointment – Once you get in touch with a member of our team, we’ll assess your emergency, let you know how soon you need to come in, and set up an appointment for you accordingly. Until then, we can give you tips for reducing your discomfort at home.
  • Conducting an emergency exam – When you get to our office, Dr. Davies will see you right away. He’ll quickly, yet thoroughly, examine your smile both visually and by taking X-rays to detect problems that may be hidden under the surface.
  • Providing quick, gentle care – After the exam, we will share our findings and recommendations for addressing your emergency and preventing the symptoms from returning. Our team will also outline the expected costs of your treatment.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Before we can provide a cost estimate for your emergency dental care, we’ll need to examine your mouth and put together a treatment plan based on your immediate need. Your costs will vary depending on the severity of the problem and how extensive the necessary treatments are.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

The chance of dental emergencies is common, so here are just a few precautions that can go a long way toward keeping that risk to a minimum:

  • Add daily flossing and twice-a-day brushing to your routine.
  • Don’t use your teeth to open bottles or packaging.
  • Avoid chewing on pencils, fingernails, or other hard objects that could break teeth.
  • Meet with Dr. Davies twice a year for preventive checkups and cleanings.
  • Wear a mouthguard when playing contact sports.
