When your teeth are injured in an accident, you need to see a professional trained in dental trauma management quickly. Fortunately, patients in Chicago, IL, and the surrounding areas have a highly experienced team of endodontists to rely on when painful situations arise.
Abscesses, infected gums, cavities, and injuries can cause painful toothaches that require immediate attention. If you’re experiencing pain somewhere in your mouth and can’t determine the reason, call the office as soon as possible.
In some cases, you may not feel pain but may still be experiencing dental trauma. Cracked teeth and lost fillings may seem like simple problems, but they can cause your teeth to deteriorate quickly if left untreated.
When you come in to be seen for dental trauma, your dental professional will recommend the best course of action to correct the problem. Most likely, x-rays will be taken to give the endodontist a clear picture of what’s happening in your mouth. Treatment options might include root canals or dental implants.
A root canal is necessary when the dental pulp is inflamed or infected. This can occur due to a cracked tooth, tooth decay, or some sort of trauma. The endodontist will clean the infected area before filling it with material to prevent further bacterial growth.
A dental implant is a permanent solution for a missing or severely injured tooth. Titanium rods are placed in the gum to serve as an artificial root, and then a porcelain crown is affixed to the rod. The result works just like a natural tooth.
