Most Common Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies generally occur as a result of poor oral hygiene, leaving teeth either decayed or infected. However, active kids may also experience a bad fall or sporting injury, causing their tooth to become cracked or dislodged. Whether your child has a toothache, a cracked or knocked-out tooth, or a damaged restoration, give us a call as soon as possible. The sooner you call, the sooner you’ll be able to get them seen. Until you arrive, here’s what you can do to improve their comfort.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Once you bring your child in for their emergency appointment, we’ll be better able to confirm the cost of treatment. Without an exam, we won’t know for sure what kind of service your child needs. For example, a toothache could be a simple cavity that only needs a filling or a sign of an underlying infection that warrants pulp therapy and a crown. Both of these treatments come with their own unique costs. With that said, we’ll do everything we can to create a plan that’s within your budget. If needed, third-party financing can also help cover the costs.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Whether your child suffers a bad fall, physical injury, or dental infection, there are ways to reduce their risk of experiencing these common dental emergencies. For example, you should always:

  • Help them maintain a daily routine of brushing and flossing
  • Provide them with protective mouthguards if they are active
  • Bring them to our office every six months for an exam and cleaning
  • Stop them from chewing on hard foods or inedible objects (i.e., popcorn kernels, ice cubes, fingernails, toys, etc.)
