Cost is always a factor when patients are dealing with dental emergencies. Many opt to forgo treatment simply because they believe they cannot afford care. This is a poor way to handle his type of problem, as the longer you wait, the worse the symptoms will become. During your consultation, our team will develop an estimate that goes over the cost of emergency dentistry. Here, you will learn what treatment entails as well as the available payment options we offer at our practice.
