What exactly is a dentist emergency?
A dental emergency is any dental issue that is causing you severe pain or badly interrupting your enjoyment of your day. Examples of problems that might require you to visit an emergency dental practice include, but aren’t limited to:
- Teeth that have been knocked out
- Teeth that have forcefully changed position
- Teeth that are fractured
If you have cracked tooth or weakened teeth from an accident or from playing sport, we can offer same day crowns using advanced CEREC technology. You just attend your emergency appointment and on that visit, there are no impressions taken, no temporary crowns, no second injections, and less time in the dental chair. An immediate, natural, new cermaic (metal-free) crown is made which is highly aesthetic and long-lasting.
What should I do once I have phoned an emergency dentist near me?
The most important thing to do when a tooth is knocked out, damaged or out of position is to phone an emergency dental practice, tell them what the problem is and make sure you have an appointment as soon as possible. Once you have done that, there are a few things you can do that might help the dentist to save your teeth.
- Find any missing teeth
- Gently clean missing teeth and store them inside your mouth, between your gum and your cheek but not back in the socket
- Gently reposition teeth that are out of place
- Hold repositioned teeth in place with tissue
- Clean any injuries to soft tissues in the mouth
