Emergency Root Canal
The highest priority emergency cases are the ones causing pain in the mouth of the patient. Those often include a procedure usually thought of as “routine:”
Root canal therapy.
Whether you were already in our dentist office and we discovered a root canal was needed to save the tooth, or if you have tooth decay that progressed to the point of a painful abscess, emergency root canal surgery might be the only option to relieve discomfort and stop infection.
Known formally as “endodontic therapy,” root canal treatment is an important dental procedure that comes as a result of inflammation and infection of the nerve root of the tooth.
When Cavities Become Emergencies
What begins as a “simple” tooth decay eats away at the core of the tooth until it reaches the nerves found in the base of the tooth.
Once the nerves and soft tissue of the tooth are affected by decay – a root canal typically becomes the most common option.
The reason root canals can be considered an emergency procedure is because the decay can result in nerve inflammation and intense, radiating pain. In these cases, the pain may be so intolerable that immediate professional attention is needed to provide relief, and to save the tooth.
