If you’re unsure what to do when faced with a dental emergency, or you are interested in learning more about how we can help, you should start by calling our office to alert us of your dental emergency. We’ll ask you questions and determine the severity of the issue before scheduling a time for you to come in as well as provide helpful tips to alleviate pain and reduce possible harm while at home.

Here, you can discover which dental emergencies we commonly treat and what you can do in the meantime to better protect your teeth and gums.

Don’t know if seeking professional help for a dental emergency is worth the potential cost? Dr. Navi Dhaliwal is here to reiterate the importance of not neglecting your oral health. Avoiding treatment because you are worried you’ll be unable to afford it will only cause your symptoms to worsen, thus resulting in more complex and invasive dental procedures. Our team will go over your treatment plan and any expected costs with you as well as file claims to help maximize your dental insurance benefits.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Avoiding dental emergencies may not always be possible, but you can take steps to reduce your risk and keep your pearly whites firmly in place. Some of the things you can do include:

  • Avoiding unhealthy habits like smoking, eating ice, or using your teeth as tools, as these can lead to broken or chipped teeth
  • Eating a nutrient-rich diet full of fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, lean meats, and more, while avoiding sugary and starchy foods that are known to cause cavities
  • Visiting your dentist every six months for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings
  • Maintaining optimal oral hygiene habits at home
  • Wearing a protective mouthguard while you engage in contact sports, or if you suffer from teeth grinding and clenching at night
