Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of dental emergencies in Thornville depends on what type of treatment you require. For example, if you experience dental sensitivity as a result of a cavity, you may only need a tooth-colored filling. However, if you have a severe toothache due to an infection, you could require a root canal and dental crown placement, which would be more costly. In any case, our team will walk you through your treatment plan and discuss pricing and payment options with you beforehand, so you know what to expect cost-wise.
