Our approach to endodontic emergencies

When you experience an endodontic emergency, our team is here to help. Here's what you can expect:
  • Immediate Evaluation: Upon contacting our office, we prioritize your situation and schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible. During your visit, we conduct a thorough evaluation to diagnose the underlying cause of your symptoms.
  • Pain Management: We understand that endodontic emergencies often involve severe pain and discomfort. Our priority is to alleviate your pain through appropriate measures such as medication and localized anesthesia.
  • Treatment Planning: Once the emergency is stabilized, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to address your specific needs and restore your oral health.

Common endodontic emergencies

  • Severe Toothache: Intense, persistent tooth pain may indicate underlying infection or inflammation within the tooth's pulp.
  • Dental Trauma: Accidents or injuries to the teeth can result in fractures, dislodgment, or avulsion (complete displacement) of the tooth, requiring immediate attention.
  • Swelling or Abscess: Swelling in the gums, face, or neck accompanied by pain and fever may indicate the presence of an abscess or localized infection.

What to do in an endodontic emergency

If you experience severe tooth pain, swelling, or trauma to the teeth, it is important to take the following steps:
  • Contact Our Office: Call us immediately to schedule an emergency appointment. Our team will provide guidance and support over the phone.
  • Manage Pain: Over-the-counter pain medication can help alleviate discomfort until you receive professional care.
  • Handle Dental Trauma Carefully: If a tooth is knocked out or dislodged, handle it by the crown (top) and avoid touching the root. Rinse the tooth gently with water if dirty, and try to reposition it in the socket if possible.
