Prestige Dental Specialists specializes in emergency visits for both endodontic and periodontal issues, many times with same-day or next-day care, at our Annandale periodontal and endodontic practice. Our doctors focus on eliminating pain with quick techniques, whether you are experiencing nerve pain or discomfort due to a tooth that is no longer restorable.
If you experience pain due to a dental injury, a cracked tooth, or a tooth with extensive decay, a simple call to our office for root canal treatment may solve your problem. Signs that you may need a root canal include:
- Severe toothache
- Pain upon chewing or application of pressure
- Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
- Dark discoloration of the tooth
- Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
Common periodontal emergencies may include gum swelling, severe mouth pain, difficulty brushing or eating due to pain, unexplained bleeding, and loose teeth. If you experience a blow to the face or other oral trauma, the gums may be injured as well. Over-the-counter pain relievers can relieve discomfort in the short term, but it’s always a good idea to make an appointment if you have an issue that cannot wait.
