Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

You may think it’s not necessary to seek help for a dental emergency, but if you forgo treatment, you may find yourself spending more time and money trying to fix the problem later on. Many dental insurance companies provide one free emergency exam each year, so much of the expense comes from the type of restorative care you’ll need. Fortunately, many insurance companies agree to pay anywhere from 50-80% of the total cost, and our team will be happy to assist in maximizing your benefits.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

If you want to avoid spending extra time and money at the emergency dentist’s office, try taking these steps to prevent dental emergencies. These may include brushing up on your oral hygiene routine, committing to your six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings, wearing a mouthguard at night to avoid teeth grinding, wearing a sportsguard while engaging in contact sports, eating a healthier diet, or giving up bad habits that can damage your smile.
