What is considered a dental emergency?
In general, any dental problem that needs immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is considered an emergency.
This consideration also applies to severe infections that can be life-threatening. If you are unsure, call us to ask – it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Is a root canal considered an emergency treatment?
A root canal is typically considered to fall under the umbrella of emergency dentistry. Tooth infections are extremely painful and uncomfortable, and they can cause serious complications if they are left untreated, including the death of the infected tooth.
How much do emergency appointments cost?
It really depends on your insurance. Most dental insurance plans will cover you for emergency appointments, and most of the procedures that they involve. However, you should check with your insurance provider before scheduling an appointment if you are unsure of the cost to yourself.
