The Most Common Dental Emergencies
Most dental emergencies come in one of two flavors: instant injuries or problems that develop gradually over long periods of time. At Harbor East Dental, our team is more than prepared to treat both. Until you can reach our office, here are some tips to help you manage your situation.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies
Although you might be apprehensive about seeing the dentist to treat your emergency because of the cost, putting off treatment is NEVER the right thing to do. When you ignore dental problems, they actually worsen over time, warranting even more expensive treatment. That’s why you should visit us as soon as you notice something is wrong.
Since every dental emergency is different, there is no set cost of treatment. Rest assured – our helpful and friendly team will do our utmost to get you out of pain before going through with any treatment so you can make any decisions with a clear head. We will also minimize your out-of-pocket costs to the best of our ability.
How to Prevent Dental Emergencies
The vast majority of dental emergencies can be stopped before they even happen by following these steps:
- Wearing a mouthguard when you engage in sports or even solo physical activities like jogging or cycling
- NOT chewing on items that could break your teeth, like your fingernails, ice, pens, and hard candies
- NOT using your teeth to open stubborn packaging, hold bags, or remove a tag from clothing
- Keeping up with regular at-home oral hygiene and dental checkups and cleanings. Regular preventive care can stop potential dental emergencies in their tracks.
