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.
Give us a call if you have any of the following:
- Broken Teeth/Fillings or Cracked Teeth causing you pain
- Substantial Toothache or tooth sensitivity
- Swollen or Sore Gums
Should you call an endodontist if you have a dental emergency?
Because most dental emergencies involve 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.
Scheduling your emergency dental appointment:
We understand that you are in pain and will do everything we can to see you the same day or during emergency hours to help you find relief. Please call us at Strathroy Endodontics Phone Number 519 245 7070 as soon as severe tooth pain occurs.
What to expect at your appointment:
First, we will get the pain under control. Next, we will take x-rays to determine whether there are any signs of fracture 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.
