WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR APPOINTMENT:
First, we will provide a thorough exam to give you an accurate diagnosis. This will include a clinical exam as well as x-rays to determine whether there are any signs of fracture or infection in or around your teeth.
Next, we will work to resolve the underlying problem. Treatment may include starting an emergency root canal, which usually alleviates the pain almost instantly. Occasionally, in the event that the tooth cannot be saved, we will refer you to an oral surgeon for extraction.
