How We Treat Dental Emergencies
Even if you are unsure whether or not your situation is an emergency, go ahead and give our office a call anyway. Describe your situation, and we’ll let you know if you should come see us. However, if you suspect that someone has a broken bone, or if they are bleeding for more than 10 minutes, be sure to head straight to your local emergency room.
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency that needs immediate care, here’s how you can typically expect us to treat it:
The Most Common Dental Emergencies
A dental emergency may be the result of a longstanding dental problem, or it may be the result of a traumatic injury. Thankfully, Dr. Parker and our team have plenty of experience and are well equipped to handle any urgent dental situation you may be facing. Below, you’ll find the most common dental emergencies we treat, as well as how you should handle them at home.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies
The cost of handling your emergency will depend on your unique situation. Treatment may be as simple as a prescription or as complex as an extensive procedure, such as root canal therapy. During your appointment, we will provide you with a candid estimate for the cost of whatever treatment we recommend. We will also help you explore your payment options. However much your treatment costs, remember that delaying or forgoing treatment will only give your dental health problem an opportunity to get worse (and become more expensive to treat).
