The Most Common Dental Emergencies

Knowing whether you’re suffering from a dental injury is not always easy. This is why we suggest you call our office right away and alert us to your situation. While explaining it over the phone, we can survey the severity while also providing tips to ease any pain. Below are just some of the most common dental emergencies we will treat.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Damage to the mouth cannot be treated or addressed without making an appointment with a trusted dentist. The cost of emergency dentistry also cannot be determined with a thorough examination. This is why we implore you to always call our office to speak with a member of our team when suffering a dental emergency. Once we can take the necessary images and perform a full evaluation, we will be able to create a cost estimate before discussing available payment options.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Knowing Dr. Walker and our team is here when you need us is reassuring. But wouldn’t you like to avoid seeing an emergency dentist altogether? A sudden fall may not always be avoidable but maintaining good oral hygiene and adopting healthy habits can help to minimize your risk of serious infection and other concerning oral health issues. Also, eating healthy meals, giving up smoking, and keeping your regularly scheduled dental appointments will put you closer to maintaining a damage-free smile year after year.
