Every dental emergency is different, so they all require different treatments. Naturally, this means we can’t give you an accurate cost estimate for your care until our dentists have had the chance to look over your mouth and make treatment recommendations. Rest assured that our team will help you navigate your payment options and handle the paperwork on your behalf. In addition to offering low-interest financing, we’re also in-network with many leading dental insurance providers.

You can’t always stop a dental emergency from happening, but you can greatly reduce your risk of damaging your smile by:

  • Visiting High Tech Family Dentistry every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning.
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day using fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Flossing once a day.
  • Wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth from grinding and sports-related injuries.
  • Avoid bad habits that could break a tooth, such as eating ice, biting your fingernails, and chewing on pen caps.
