Emergency Endodontics

Recognize and address the symptoms of an infected tooth promptly.

What Is an Endodontic Emergency?

Endodontic emergencies typically arise from tooth infections or traumatic injuries. For instance, a severe cavity that progresses and leads to a tooth infection constitutes an endodontic emergency. Similarly, a cracked or extensively chipped tooth that exposes the inner pulp poses a risk of infection and is considered an emergency situation. If you observe symptoms such as gum swelling, tooth sensitivity, or if your tooth has recently suffered a severe crack, chip, or breakage, seeking emergency treatment from Indianapolis Endodontics becomes crucial. We prioritize our patients' urgent needs and offer same-day consultations in Indianapolis or Avon. Don't hesitate to contact us immediately for the emergency endodontic care you require.

Treat Bleeding if Present

In the case of a tooth bleeding from an oral injury, you can address this by gently applying clean gauze, cotton balls, or paper towels to absorb the blood. Typically, the bleeding will subside within approximately 45 minutes.

Mitigate Swelling and Discomfort

Experiencing pain and discomfort from an oral injury or infected tooth can be distressing. If your medical history permits, consider taking an over-the-counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen or naproxen for temporary relief. Additionally, applying an ice pack to the affected area on the cheek can help numb the discomfort and provide comfort until you can seek professional dental care.
