Your dental health is important, and our patients’ safety is our top priority. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and all CDC guidelines very closely.
We understand that toothaches can happen at any time. That’s one of the reasons why our office in Huntington has early morning and evening appointments throughout the week.
Why You May Need an Emergency Root Canal
Whether it’s a persistent throbbing around your tooth or a sharp, severe toothache, don’t delay. If you feel pain, it’s likely the nerves in your tooth are inflamed. Typically, that’s caused by one of these problems:
- dental decay (a cavity) has progressed through the enamel of the tooth and reached the soft pulp in the tooth canal, which is where the nerves are contained
- the tooth has cracked or broken and the nerves are now exposed
- a crown or filling came out and the nerves are now exposed
- your tooth has been damaged some other way

We offer same-day endodontic consultations and will provide you with a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. We’ll answer any questions you have and will give you with all the information you need to make the best decision on how to proceed to eliminate your toothache.
