While a general dentist can handle your biannual tooth cleaning and exam, sometimes you may have oral health needs that require a specialist. Dental emergencies that require oral surgery are one of those instances where it’s smart to see a specialist.
At Renovo Endodontic Studio in Chicago, IL, we have licensed endodontists (i.e., root canal specialists) who can provide you with the specialized care you need. Here’s what you should know about emergency dental services and endodontics.
Some dental emergencies are more serious than others, but you should see an emergency dentist as soon as possible after experiencing any dental trauma. Wondering whether your situation constitutes a dental emergency or not? Here are some examples of oral conditions you should seek immediate treatment for:
The sooner you receive treatment for conditions like these, the smoother your recovery will be. For example, pain, swelling, and tenderness are common signs of a vertical root fracture. While some root fractures heal on their own, others require complex treatment that only a specialist like an endodontist can provide.
If you have a dental emergency and live in Chicago or Downers Grove, IL, come to our clinic for expert treatment. As endodontists, we specialize in performing root canals to save injured teeth. When saving the tooth isn’t possible, we offer several options for replacement, including dental implants.
In addition, our practice is outfitted with the latest specialized equipment. We have 3D imaging, digital radiography equipment, and state-of-the-art surgical microscopes. For our patients’ benefit, we also have flat-screen TVs with cable in each operating room. You can watch your favorite show while we restore your smile.
