Endodontic Emergencies


It is common in our practice for patients to present to us with problems that have developed suddenly. We make every effort to see patients who have pain or swelling as soon as possible, usually on the same day that we become aware of the problem.

Sometimes after-hour emergencies arise. If this should occur, call our office phone number. Our answering service will take the message and relay it to your doctor. Please allow a reasonable amount of time for us to return your call, but please do call back if more than an hour transpires.
