Although it may be easy to panic in a dental emergency, we encourage you to stay calm! Keeping a level head during these scary situations will help you act quickly and correctly when it matters most. Thankfully, having the experienced and compassionate dental team here at Canal Side Family Dental on your side during a dental emergency can make a world of difference. Should you encounter a dental emergency, follow these steps:

The Most Common Dental Emergencies

There are two major types of dental emergencies that patients should be on the lookout for. The first type is sudden and unexpected – physical accidents that may result in broken, fractured, or completely knocked-out teeth. The second type develops at a more gradual pace and occurs when tooth decay worsens over time, leading to a severe oral infection that is often better known as a “toothache.” Dr. Peterson, Dr. Adelstein, and Dr. Mortelliti all have plenty of experience with both types of emergencies and will be able to assist you by relieving pain and providing restorative solutions. Here are some helpful tips for handling some of the most common dental emergencies.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

No two dental emergencies are like, and their costs can vary wildly as well. Some symptoms may be treatable with a simple prescription, while others could require more involved reconstructive care, such as the placement of a dental implant or a custom-made dental crown. At Canal Side Family Dental, we will focus on providing relief first from serious pain and then create a comprehensive breakdown of further costs and care options so that patients have everything they need to make an informed decision. We will also be happy to file insurance claims and arrange affordable payment plans through CareCredit when needed.
