How Much Does Emergency Dental Care Cost?
We get a lot of questions about how much emergency dental care costs. As each dental emergency is different, we base the cost of your emergency dental care services on a few factors and provide an estimate after an evaluation. These include how much your insurance will cover, the severity of your emergency, and whether or not you need a follow-up visit. We’ll explain the options that you have for treatment during your visit so that you know what to expect.

Which Types of Dental Services Are Emergencies?
Our urgent dental care procedures in Southlake can help return your teeth to good health. We’ve outlined some of the procedures we offer, but call our office if you have further questions.
Emergency Extractions: When it’s possible, our dentists will recommend treatment that saves your tooth. However, it’s not always possible. During an extraction, we’ll make you as comfortable as we can through the use of anesthesia and other methods.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Wisdom teeth often come in after the rest of your permanent teeth emerge. However, they can cause pain, and there’s a risk of infection. Reach out to us if yours are making you suffer.
Root Canals: Root canals are emergency dental care services that can save teeth in which the pulp is inflamed or infected. They can reduce oral pain at the affected sites too.
Root Canals for Children: The gentle dentists at our clinic can also conduct root canals for kids who have infected tooth pulp. The procedure can preserve their real teeth.
Tooth Extractions: In addition to emergency tooth removals, we perform routine extractions of injured or decayed teeth.
When Is Emergency Dental Care Necessary?
You should seek urgent dental treatment in your area when you experience any of the problems defined below.
Abscessed Teeth: With an abscessed tooth, the root of your tooth is infected. Along with extreme pain, you could have oozing gums, swelling, fever and other symptoms. This condition requires emergency treatment.
Cracked or Broken Teeth: An infection can set into a cracked or broken tooth if you don’t seek treatment. Call our dental clinic immediately if one or more of your teeth are damaged.
Fractured or Broken Jaw: Urgent treatment is necessary if you fracture or break your jaw. Reach out to our dentists for emergency services if you feel pain in the face or jaw or have a crooked bite.
Lost, Broken or Loose Crowns: If a crown becomes loose, lost or broken, the tooth underneath becomes exposed to bacteria and further damage. We can restore your smile with a replacement.
Dental Infections: An infection can develop along your gums if you don’t get proper dental cleanings. We can provide treatment and educate you about how to prevent it from developing again.
Knocked-Out Teeth: Although it’s scary, don’t panic if you’ve knocked out a tooth. It might be possible for us to save it. If it’s too uncomfortable to put it into the socket again, place it in a cup with cold milk until your visit.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Having a loose or missing filling leaves your tooth vulnerable to more damage from decay. Schedule an emergency dental appointment to replace it.
Severe Gum or Facial Swelling: It’s never good to ignore swelling in the gums or face. Our dental team can determine the cause and alleviate your discomfort while providing treatment.
Severe Toothache: Don’t wait for ongoing oral pain to go away on its own. See our emergency dental team for pain relief and treatment.
