Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Child brushing teeth to prevent dental emergencies

Not every dental emergency is avoidable, but your child is less likely to experience one if you help them maintain good oral health habits. This includes:

  • Having them wear a mouthguard whenever they participate in sports.
  • Encouraging them to open packages with scissors instead of their teeth.
  • Making sure they don’t crunch ice or chew fingernails.
  • Teaching them to brush and floss twice a day.
  • Scheduling a checkup and cleaning for them twice a year.

Cost of Treating a Child’s Dental Emergencies

Once we know the nature and extent of the problem, we can figure out what procedures might be necessary and what costs are involved. We’ll explain your treatment options (as well as how much you can expect to pay for them) in detail before we begin your child’s emergency care. Our dental office is in-network with most insurances, and we’ll work with you to make sure you get the most out of your benefits.
