Dental emergencies happen to almost everyone at some point in their life. Do you know what to do when you have a cracked tooth, severe tooth pain, or find yourself in one of the other emergency situations listed below?
As endodontists, we are experts in saving teeth. The sooner you see us, the sooner you can be free of pain!
Give us a call to alleviate the pain that you have now, and prevent it from getting worse.
Because most dental emergencies involve tooth pain caused by infection or fractures such as cracked teeth and often require root canal therapy, endodontists are used to treating a variety of dental emergencies every day.
We understand that you are in pain and will do everything we can to see you the same day or within 24-48 hours.
We will take x-rays or a 3D CBCT scan to diagnose and determine whether there are any signs of fractures or infection in or around your teeth. And finally, we will work to resolve the underlying problem.
Treatment may include an emergency root canal, which usually alleviates the pain almost instantly. Occasionally, in the event that the tooth cannot be saved, we will refer you to an oral surgeon for extraction.
