Have a Dental Emergency? Go to Endodontist First, Not Emergency Room or Urgent Care
With hospitals and emergency rooms overloaded, endodontist offices remain open for dental emergencies for those suffering from extreme tooth pain or other oral health related emergencies such as those that might require root canal treatment.
During the constantly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals and emergency rooms are experiencing extreme surges of patients seeking urgent care, leading to longer wait times for patients in need, shortages of medicine and equipment and clinician and staff overload.
To help reduce the number of ER and Urgent Care admitted patients, it’s important that patients contact an endodontist office first for all dental-related emergencies. If you are experiencing severe dental pain, dental infection symptoms (e.g. bleeding, swelling) or a dental infection-related fever, please contact your endodontist immediately.
Endodontists are tooth pain and root canal treatment specialists trained in diagnosing and treating tooth pain. They consider their role during this crisis to alleviate tooth pain, manage oral infections and reduce the need for patients to seek emergency dental care at ERs and Urgent Care facilities.

Root Canal Surgery in Ocean Township Township, Freehold & Middletown NJ
Root canal surgery is used in cases where conventional root canals are not possible (calcified canals) or may have failed (become infected). In this procedure the endodontist makes an opening in the gum tissue and removes the infected tissue and the end of the root. A seal is placed at the end of the root to prevent further infection. The material used is MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate), which is a state of the art material that is far superior to previous materials used for this type of procedure. With the infected tissue removed and MTA seal placed, the bone is replaced naturally by the body over the course of a few months.
