What Is An Emergency Root Canal?
When you are in pain, the last thing you want to hear is that your endodontist doesn’t have any available appointments. Tooth pain hurts - especially when the pulp of the tooth is infected. And, you shouldn’t have to suffer in pain due to poor timing.
Thankfully, at Forest Lake Endodontics, we offer our patients emergency root canals to provide them with immediate relief. Of course, dental emergencies go much further and may also include:
- Dental trauma
- Cracked teeth
- Swelling of the gums
- Lost crowns
- Severe tooth pain
If you experience any of the above, contact our office right away so that you will not only feel better but also have the greatest chance at saving your tooth, too.
Benefits of an Emergency Root Canal
Of all the benefits that come with emergency root canals, perhaps the most important is the relief that is felt. After all, tooth pain doesn’t feel good and can be very disruptive in day-to-day life.
Emergency root canals also:
- Help to save teeth from extraction.
- Reduce the chance that the infection will spread.
- Increase oral health.
