In a dental emergency, the last thing you need to worry about is how much your care will cost. Because each dental emergency is different and requires different treatment, we can’t provide a cost estimate until Dr. Zuberi has looked over your mouth. Rest assured that our team will accept and maximize your dental insurance plan to help you get the most savings possible. We also offer CareCredit financing to make your treatments more budget-friendly.

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can never be prevented with 100% certainty, but there are several precautions you can take to reduce your risk. These include:

  • Brushing and flossing every day to prevent plaque buildup.
  • Seeing Dr. Zuberi for six-month checkups so she can address potential emergencies before they damage your smile.
  • Wearing a mouthguard if you play sports.
  • Asking us about a nightguard if you grind your teeth when you sleep.
  • Not using your teeth to chew on hard objects like ice cubes or pen tips.
