In a recent news release from the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) people with dental pain or emergencies are urged to seek care from endodontists rather than hospitals.

As a result of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic hospitals and emergency rooms can experience surges of patients seeking care. The additional measures being taken to reduce the risk of spreading COVID -19 lead to longer wait times for patients in need, overloaded staff, and shortages of equipment and medication. In an effort to reduce the number of patients seeking urgent care in hospitals the AAE said, “it’s important that patients contact an endodontist office first for all dental-related emergencies.”

Endodontists are tooth pain and root canal treatment specialists who strive to save natural teeth. We are the best point of contact in case of dental pain or an emergency.

Professional Endodontics Remains Open

If you are experiencing dental pain or symptoms of an infection (e.g. bleeding, swelling) Professional Endodontics remains open for your care.

Dental emergencies can be life-threatening and it’s essential that our endodontists treat patients and reduce the burden on hospitals.

We are adhering to the strictest hygiene protocols and will stay abreast of the most recommended guidelines.

Please do not hesitate to contact our office for assistance or further information.
