Understanding the Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

The cost of your emergency dental care will depend on the specific situation you’re dealing with as well as which procedures are required to address it. For example, a toothache could necessitate anything from a simple filling to a full-on tooth extraction, which would understandably cost more. Whatever the case may be, our team at Dudley Family Dental welcomes dental insurance and does our utmost to minimize your out-of-pocket expenses.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

  • Brushing and flossing every day at home
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Seeing us twice a year for routine checkups and cleanings
  • Calling us right away if you experience any unusual oral discomfort
  • Protecting your smile during sports with a mouthguard
  • Wearing a nightguard if you clench and grind your teeth when you sleep
