Preventing Dental Emergencies

Taking preventive measures when it comes to your dental care is one of the best ways to ward off a dental emergency. If you or your child is playing contact sports, we highly recommend wearing a customized mouthguard to help protect them from breaking a tooth. Additionally, regularly attending your routine cleanings allows us to accurately monitor your oral health and detect problem areas before they progress to dental emergencies. You should also consider adding a few items to your first-aid kit to help prepare for a dental emergency, including dental floss, gauze, and a small container that can be used to transport a broken tooth.

Cost of Emergency Dentistry

The unexpectedness of your dental emergency won’t affect your cost of treatment. We understand that the financial burden of dental care is often what prevents patients from seeking the care they need, and we never want that to cross your mind in a dental emergency. At Helotes Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of payment options to place emergency dental care within your reach. We’re insurance friendly and accept a variety of payment plans through CareCredit®.
