Upon your arrival, Dr. Johnston will conduct a thorough examination, possibly including digital X-rays, to determine the source of your dental emergency. Once diagnosed, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan aimed at relieving your pain and addressing the underlying issue, which may include dental fillings, root canal therapy, tooth extractions, or other services.

Common Dental Emergencies We Treat

Instead of seeking care at an emergency room or urgent care clinic, contacting a dentist is advised for dental concerns. Our team is equipped to handle various emergencies, including toothaches, chipped or cracked teeth, sensitivity to hot and cold, knocked-out teeth, lost fillings or crowns, broken dentures, loose teeth, gum injuries, jaw pain, and more.

Understanding the Cost of Emergency Dental Treatment

We understand that obtaining fast relief is paramount during a dental emergency. Our team is committed to ensuring a seamless experience, including transparent cost explanations, assistance with dental insurance, and flexible financing options.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

While not all dental emergencies can be avoided, adopting healthy habits and precautions can significantly reduce the risk. Simple measures such as regular dental check-ups, proper oral hygiene practices, wearing mouthguards during physical activities, and avoiding harmful habits can help maintain your oral health and prevent emergencies.

If you have questions or concerns about dental emergencies, we encourage you to call our office on 212-242-5344. Kelly our receptionist will work with you on your insurance and if you don’t have insurance or are between jobs we will give you a breakdown of cost for the treatment.
