Based on your feedback, our practice will draft a custom treatment plan just for you. (To be clear, we’ll explain the estimated treatment price and timeframe before you commit to anything.)

Even if you need emergency dentistry, you may worry about its price. Fair enough – you can’t get treatment that’s outside your budget. However, the cost of a dental emergency varies by patient; you’ll need to consult Dr. Mattson for an exact estimate. Once an initial price is set, our office can work on making your care more affordable. We’ll even walk you through the treatment’s cost factors and the available financing options.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Naturally, you’re better off preventing a dental emergency than just managing one. The former option is less pricey and time-consuming. So, it’s a good thing you can reduce the risk of urgent oral problems. Just follow the tips listed below:

  • Maintain Good Oral Hygiene – Remember to brush your teeth twice daily and floss between them once daily. Also, rinse with fluoridated mouthwash often.
  • Avoid Bad Oral Habits – Try not to chew on hard objects, as doing so can chip your teeth. You should avoid excess alcohol and tobacco as well; they can cause gum disease.
  • Eat ‘Mouth-Healthy’ Meals – Rather than high-sugar stuff, fill your meals with lean proteins, leafy greens, and dairy products. These will strengthen your enamel and keep your mouth safe.
  • See the Dentist Often – At minimum, see your dentist every six months for checkups and cleanings.

“Dr. Mattson and her entire staff are AMAZING. I was super nervous to have a tooth pulled and Dr. Mattson was kind, patient, and professional. She was up front on what I needed and did not try to “up sell!” She gave me the information and then allowed me to make the best decision for me. Her staff is extremely professional and very kind as well. I highly recommend her and her team!”
