How We Treat Dental Emergencies

You must first call our office and speak to a member of our team. This will determine when you should come in for treatment as well as what you can do to minimize the pain and possible damage while at home.

When arriving for your appointment, we will take digital images of your teeth before identifying the problem area and creating a formalized treatment plan. Once it’s approved by you, we will begin working quickly to help you out of pain and restore your smile to its natural beauty.

Most Common Dental Emergencies

At Central Dental Associates, we encourage patients to call 911 and/or get to a local emergency room as quickly as possible if they sustain a broken or fractured jawbone, continuous bleeding that does not cease, or increased swelling that hinders an individual’s ability to breathe. Otherwise, we can likely treat the problem in-house, delivering long-lasting, beautiful results.

Understanding the Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

You will find that most dental insurance companies offer coverage for emergency exams. Although not in all cases, it is possible that your plan may include one free emergency visit each year. While this is good news, it’s not necessarily the costliest part of your plan. Once we determine the type of restorative care you will need, you can expect that we will file a claim with your dental insurance to help you pay less for your essential restorative care.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

Not all injuries are avoidable; however, there are ways to minimize your risk of a serious toothache or injury, such as:

  • Brushing, flossing, and rinsing regularly (twice daily) to reduce dental decay and bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease.
  • Meeting with our dental team every six months for professional exams and teeth cleanings.
  • Wearing appropriate mouth protection to safeguard against worn tooth enamel, accidental injuries, etc.
  • Giving up smoking and other equally harmful habits that can damage teeth and increase the risk of gum disease.
  • Eating healthy foods as opposed to those that consist mainly of sugars and starches.
