What Types of Dental Emergencies Can an Endodontist Treat?

You may need to see an endodontist for any emergency that requires root canal therapy. Possible signs that a root canal is needed include:

  • Significant pain or swelling in a specific tooth.
  • Dental sensitivity to heat or cold that lingers for a long time.
  • Pain to chewing and biting 
  • A tooth that has been cracked or broken.
  • A draining bubble by the gums around the tooth.

When you call our dental office, we’ll ask you to describe all of the symptoms you’re experiencing. Based on what you tell us, we’ll decide whether an endodontic solution might be called for.

How We Care for Dental Emergencies

Upon receiving your initial call, we’ll provide first-aid advice and set up an appointment. At our office, your tooth will be evaluated with the latest technology so that we can narrow down the underlying cause of your pain and gauge the extent of the damage. Then, we’ll let you know if there are any endodontic solutions available. Treatment will only move forward once you understand what it entails, including the cost and the length of the procedure.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

The type of tooth affected, and the severity of the emergency, will be relevant factors for figuring out the cost of emergency endodontic care. To make paying for tooth-saving treatments easier, we accept a number of dental insurance plans. We’re in-network with Cigna, Delta Dental, and Unum; we can also file for out-of-network PPOs if need be. Be sure to talk with our team to see what financial options are available to you.
