Understanding the Cost of Children’s Dental Emergencies

Your child’s dental emergency is unique. Even if your little one and another come in with chipped teeth, it is unlikely to be the same price for both. The reason is that multiple factors must be considered before establishing an estimated cost. Once your emergency dentist in Woodway can examine your child’s smile, we can better prepare a plan that includes the price so that you can clearly understand the expectations required for treatment and payment.

Keys to Preventing Children’s Dental Emergencies

  • Make sure that your child is brushing and flossing at least twice a day (or that you’re brushing for them if they aren’t old enough to use a toothbrush on their own yet).
  • Schedule checkups and cleanings for your child every six months.
  • If your child plays football, basketball, or any other contact sport, make sure that they always wear a personalized mouthguard while engaging in said activity.
  • Discourage your child from biting their nails, chewing on pencils, or other bad habits that could lead to damaged teeth.
