Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of dental emergencies varies with each patient. No two injuries are alike, so it’s imperative that you call and schedule an appointment to see Dr. Ashraghi. Only after a thorough examination will she be able to determine the type of restorative care you need and how much it is expected to cost. Most dental insurance companies provide one free emergency exam and will help pay a portion of the treatment costs. However, even if you are uninsured, our team will explain our in-house financing plan to ensure you get the care you need at a price you can afford.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Preventing dental emergencies may not always be possible, but there are a few things you can do to lower your risk. These include:

  • Limiting unhealthy foods like sugars and starches as much as possible, as they can cause cavities and gum disease
  • Keeping your regular six-month appointments with your dentist
  • Practicing good oral hygiene habits at home like brushing, flossing, and rinsing
  • Giving up bad habits like smoking, eating ice, biting your fingernails, and using your teeth as tools
  • Wearing a mouthguard if you play sports or struggle with grinding your teeth while you sleep
