A dental emergency can happen any time. You might crack a tooth chewing on some ice, or your smile might be injured as a result of an accident while playing sports. Even if the dental damage doesn’t look too bad, it could still lead to infections and other serious issues in the future. That’s why you need an expert to evaluate the damage and perform any necessary repairs as soon as possible. Call Worcester Endodontics immediately when a dental emergency occurs.
If we find that the dental pulp has been damaged or infected as a result of your dental injury, we’ll need to remove it with root canal therapy or another endodontic procedure. Chips and fractures can be repaired with dental crowns. Dislodged and knocked-out teeth can be replanted if swift action is taken. Root fractures may have to be stabilized with a splint. We will provide additional treatments depending on the type of injury.
Your first step should be to call our office right away. The potential for infection and further injury only grows worse the longer you wait. Furthermore, there’s only a limited amount of time to attempt to replant a tooth that has been dislodged or knocked-out. As such, an appointment needs to be made as soon as possible. We’ll give you some first-aid tips over the phone that can keep your smile safe and comfortable until your appointment.
