Knocked-Out Tooth – Average Cost: $3,125
Often caused by accidents or sports injuries, knocked-out teeth—also known as avulsed teeth—are a very serious form of dental emergency. If you act fast, an emergency dentist should be able to re-implant the tooth. After the avulsed tooth has been put back in place, it will need to be splinted, and a root canal may also be necessary. In most cases, the cost of treatment for a knocked-out tooth is $3,125.
Cracked or Chipped Tooth – Average Cost: $825
Whether you’ve taken a blow to the face or you bit down on something too hard, cracked or chipped teeth are relatively common. If you don’t act quickly, the tooth could become infected or experience further damage, which may end up leading to an extraction. Treatment costs depend upon the severity of your cracked tooth and can range from $825 to $1,125.
Abscessed Tooth – Average Cost: $110
A tooth abscess can cause fever, toothache and tooth sensitivity. In some cases, it can even be life-threatening, which is why it’s so important to see a dentist as soon as possible. Depending upon the severity of your tooth abscess, your dentist may decide to cut it open and let the pus drain. Generally, emergency dental procedures for abscessed teeth cost around $110.
Lost Filling – Average cost: $158
If your filling falls out unexpectedly, you should make an immediate appointment with an emergency dentist. After taking an X-ray and discussing your dental history, your tooth will be restored with another filling. A root canal and crown may be needed if your filling falls out and exposes the nerve of your tooth or a deep cavity. The cost of an emergency filling restoration will be around $158.
Lost Crown – Average cost: $1,250
Losing a crown can be a strange and alarming experience, and because the exposed tooth tissue may be sensitive to temperature changes, hot and cold food and even air, it can be seriously painful. If you lose a crown, keep it in a safe place and make an appointment with an emergency dentist. Treatment for a lost crown will be around $1250.
Broken Braces and Wires – Average cost: $125
Broken brackets or loose wires can be super-uncomfortable. If you’re experiencing extreme discomfort, you should contact an emergency orthodontist immediately, and they can fix your braces during your appointment. In most cases, braces repairs will cost around $xx. Remember, not all broken braces are an emergency. If they aren’t causing you any pain, it can probably wait until your next appointment.
