Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies
You may not be thinking about the cost of emergency dental care until after you’ve already made your appointment. Fortunately, you’ll have our team members on hand to explain what you can expect to pay for a given treatment.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies
It’s always better to avoid a dental emergency altogether than it is to try and repair damage that has already been done. Always remember to brush and floss at least two times a day, and visit your dentist every six months for preventive checkups and cleanings. Do not use your teeth as tools to open packages, and be proactive about breaking bad habits – like crunching ice – that can take their toll on your teeth over time.
