25 Jun From minor mishaps to a dental emergency: a dentist and emergency dentist for everyone
Teeth are our priority, and we want to help you with yours. Our Dental Beauty Southgate team,your dentists in Southgate are a family focused team of professionals who will attend to your needs in a timely, friendly and efficient manner, whether it is a checkup, or a matter needing urgent medical attention, such as a knocked out tooth, sudden pain or bleeding.
Dentists in Southgate are essential as doctors, and here is why
You do not ignore the early signs of flu out of fear that it might turn into bronchitis, and neither should you overlook a dull toothache, which could be a symptom of tooth decay.
Visiting us every six months could be the difference between filling a cavity or having to undergo a painful procedure to preserve a tooth, or worse, facing a tooth extraction. We detect issues early so that they do not become bigger ones that are expensive and harrowing to fix later on.
We know you lead a busy life – between work and home responsibilities, you barely have time to breathe. That said, whilst not a matter of life or death, your teeth are a priority that need regular medical attention. Do not wait until the last minute to frantically search for an emergency dentist in Southgate, attend to your needs today.
The outcome of a dentist visit
Your dental practitioner assesses your mouth, teeth and gums, takes X-rays for further inspection, removes abrasions and polishes your teeth.
If you have perfect teeth and no cavities, you will still walk away from your checkup with clean teeth that are free of plaque and harmful bacteria. We will fill your cavities if you have any, and prevent tooth decay. At the signs of gum disease called gingivitis, we will book you for an appointment with our oral hygienist for a deep clean to remove harmful tartar calcified in your teeth and the lining of your gums.
If we consider you or your child suitable candidates for braces, we will refer you to an orthodontist in your area.
Know how to act in an emergency
You can plan and organise many things in your life, but accidents occur at any time whether you are ready for them or not.
Impact with a hard object to your tooth may result in profuse bleeding or tooth loss. An injury of this sort is classified as an emergency and must be seen by a dentist immediately to preserve the tooth.
Refusing to see a dentist in Southgate at the time of injury could result in you losing your tooth or developing a nasty or even life threatening infection, so it is in your best interest to do so.
If the accident happens during our office hours, we will tend to your needs as soon as possible on the same day the injury occurred. If the injury has taken place after hours, on a bank holiday or over a weekend, phone our hotline and follow the steps on what to do next – we will advise you to visit your nearest hospital in the event of an emergency.
Take care of your teeth – brush, floss, do not skip your scheduled dental appointment and tend to an injured tooth quickly to avoid tooth loss with our skilled and experienced dentists.
