The Most Common Dental Emergencies

Many dental emergencies happen suddenly as the result of an injury or accident, such as a broken or knocked-out tooth. Others may gradually develop over a long period of time, such as a severe toothache or very sensitive teeth. In any case, if you are experiencing damage or discomfort in your smile, we encourage you to contact us right away. We’ll help you determine how urgently you need to be seen and schedule and appointment for you accordingly. Before you reach our dental office, you can follow the steps that we’ve outlined below to help make you more comfortable and prepare you for your visit.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of your emergency dental visit will depend on a few different factors, including whether you require sedation, what type of treatment you need, and your dental insurance coverage. During your examination, Dr. Mason will discuss her diagnosis and treatment recommendations with you in detail before moving forward with any procedures. That way, you can make an informed decision and navigate any financial barriers easily. We offer financing to help with your emergency and to help you get out of pain. CareCredit financing may be a 3, 5, or 12-month financing payment plan and may have little to no interest.
