Charges for Emergency Dental Care
It’s common to wonder about the cost you’ll be expected to pay for your emergency dental care. Emergency dental care costs depend on a number of factors, including the type of treatment you need, whether you need follow-up care and the extent of your insurance coverage. You and your dentist will discuss your treatment options, and from there, we’ll give you an estimate of likely emergency dental costs.
Emergency Dental Services
What Type of Services Are Included in Emergency Dental Treatment?
When you’re experiencing oral pain, severe tooth decay or swelling, emergency dental treatment can help ease your discomfort and put you back on track for good oral health. Below are a few of our emergency dental services:
Emergency Extractions: Preserving your natural teeth is always our goal, but a tooth that is severely decayed or infected may need to be extracted right away. If you are experiencing significant tooth pain, call us for an appointment today.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Wisdom teeth can lead to pain when they finally emerge or they may not emerge correctly. Sometimes, the only way to alleviate wisdom tooth problems is to remove the teeth immediately. Our dentists can perform this procedure in our emergency dental clinic, using anesthesia and other methods to keep you comfortable during the procedure.
Root Canals: Your dentist may recommend a root canal when the inner pulp of the tooth is inflamed or infected. This procedure helps save your natural tooth while eradicating the infection and easing the accompanying pain.
Root Canals for Children: In addition to root canals for adults, our dentists are experienced in performing root canal therapy on young patients. This procedure helps save the child’s tooth.
Tooth Extractions: Our skilled dentists perform routine tooth extractions to remove teeth that are overly decayed, broken or injured.
When Should I Look For Emergency Dental Services?
If you experience any of the following conditions or symptoms, call our dental office for emergency dental treatment:
Abscessed Teeth: An abscess is a serious infection of the root of the tooth. It can cause your face or gums to swell and your gums to ooze. It can also cause fever and severe pain. If you have these symptoms, seek emergency dental care in our office.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: Teeth with breaks chips or cracks are vulnerable to damage and injury. Contact our office for treatment.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: Seek emergency treatment if you have, or suspect you have, a broken or fractured jaw. Some symptoms to watch out for include pain, numbness, swelling, bruising, or a crooked or “off” bite.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: Crowns protect your damaged tooth from injury, decay and infection. When the seal of the crown is broken, you expose your tooth to potential problems. Our dentist can replace your lost or loose crown, restoring your tooth’s appearance and integrity.
Dental Infections: Infections can occur at the gumline when proper dental cleanings are missed. Contact our office for an appointment with a dentist who can treat your infection and relieve your pain.
Knocked-out Teeth: Having a tooth knocked out doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve lost that tooth forever. Your dentist may be able to save your tooth if you preserve the knocked-out tooth correctly. Placing the tooth in a cold cup of milk until your appointment can help if you aren’t able to place the tooth back in its socket. Bring the tooth with you to your appointment and your dentist will discuss your options with you.
Loose or Lost Fillings: Fillings that are dislodged, missing or broken leave your tooth vulnerable to damage and decay. See one of our dentists for emergency services to have your filling replaced.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: It’s important not to ignore any painful swelling in your face or gums. If you experience swelling, visit our office for immediate treatment.
Severe Toothaches: If you have a throbbing, persistent toothache, contact us for emergency dental care. Our dentist can treat the root cause of your toothache and provide helpful pain relief.
