Dental Symptoms. When to call for an endodontic referral or appointment.

Sometimes, damage to your teeth can be so subtle they can only be detected by an exam and x-ray. Usually, though, problems significant enough to require endodontic treatment will have pronounced symptoms. Here are a few signs it’s time to call your dentist for a referral or contact us directly for an appointment:

  • Dental pain triggered by cold or chewing
  • Drainage or bleeding from the gums
  • Swelling in the mouth or tongue
  • Rotting teeth
  • A bad taste in the mouth, even after brushing your teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Facial pain
  • Facial swelling

Symptoms that may be associated with an injury include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Bleeding from a tooth
  • Temperature sensitivity
  • Swelling
  • Teeth not lining up properly when you close your mouth
  • Loss of one or more teeth
  • Facial pain
  • Pain while chewing

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, contact us. We have an endodondist on call 24/7, and fast action is essential to saving your tooth.
