Determining an exact cost for your treatment can be quite difficult without having you come into the practice for closer examination. Once you do, we can perform a more detailed evaluation and confirm which treatment is needed to get you out of pain. Simple treatments, such as decay removal and a crown will be more affordable than more complex treatments, such as a root canal to address an oral infection. No matter what the costs are, we’ll help you build a treatment plan that resolves your dental emergency in a reasonable way.
Most dental emergencies can be avoided if you maintain a few simple habits. For example, brushing, flossing and routine cleanings and checkups can help you avoid a majority of dental disease. Additionally, those who play contact sports or suffer from chronic teeth grinding need to have a dedicated oral appliance to prevent damage to tooth enamel. Furthermore, there is no circumstance where you should be using your teeth as a tool, such as when you’re opening packages.
