Even if you’ve never had a dental emergency before, you needn’t worry. We at Shelburne Village Dentistry can give you a rundown of how treatment works. In particular, here are some things to expect from your emergency dental visit:

  • A Same-Day Appointment – Once you’ve contacted us, our team will book you for the earliest available timeslot. You may even see us the same day you call! While you’re on the phone with us, we can also provide first-aid tips for your situation.
  • An Emergency Exam – When you first arrive for your visit, Dr. Maier will perform a quick emergency exam. This step lets her learn the source of your oral problem. (Crucially, it also helps her confirm how to relieve your pain.)
  • Review of Findings – After the exam, Dr. Maier will show her findings to you. She’ll then suggest a few possible procedures. Based on your wants, our office will next draft a custom treatment plan just for you. (Of course, we’ll outline the treatment price and timeframe before you commit to anything.)
  • The Care You Need – Our team will quickly address your issue after the treatment plan is drafted. You can expect good results, too, as we can give you fillings, crowns, root canal therapy, and more. Whatever the problem, our office will get your smile back on track.

Maybe you’re worried about emergency dentistry’s price. If so, that’s a common concern – you can’t benefit from a treatment you can’t afford. Truthfully, though, the cost of dental emergencies varies by patient; you’ll need to consult Dr. Maier for an exact estimate. Once we’ve tallied the expenses, our office will find ways to make your care more affordable. Our team will even guide you through the treatment’s cost factors and financing options.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

As you’d expect, it’s easier to prevent a dental emergency than to manage one. The latter option is painful and spends more of your time and money. Fortunately, the ways to avoid an urgent oral problem are simple. Good ones include frequent dental checkups, practicing good oral hygiene, and sticking to a mouth-healthy diet. If you follow these habits, you’ll greatly reduce your risk of a dental emergency.
