After all, these services won’t be of much help if you can’t afford to pay for them. Still, the price of a dental emergency treatment varies from one patient to another. Consequently, you must consult  Dr. Kennington in person to confirm your exact care estimate. Our office can then walk you through the pricing factors and several financing options that ensure affordable care.

Therefore, you’d be wise to take steps to avoid them in the first place. To that end, try practicing the right oral habits in the future. These might include attending more dental checkups, frequent brushing and flossing, and following a mouth-healthy diet. Followed well, such habits would let you skip the headache of a dental emergency by reducing your risk of one.
