28 Aug What to do in a dental emergency
We have a comprehensive range of solutions to relieve pain or restore your smile if you have a dental emergency. We always try to offer you emergency treatment on the same day, so please call us at Dental Beauty Southgate as soon as your dental emergency occurs. If your dental emergency happens outside of our usual practice hours, we can still help. Listen to the message on our telephone answering machine and follow instructions for out of hours emergencies.
There are many situations that can arise that require an emergency dentist in Southgate:
- Chipped or broken teeth as a result of an accident or injury
- Knocked out teeth
- Severe toothache
- Dental abscesses.
Do not delay visiting our emergency dentist in Southgate
In any kind of dental emergency, the sooner you can get to us the better. In cases such as knocked-out teeth, please keep and bring them to your emergency dentist in Southgate; it is possible they can be re-implanted. Leaving yourself in pain can lead to infection, and in some cases, long-term damage. No matter what has happened, whether it be an accident or a sudden painful toothache, please do not delay calling us.
What happens during an emergency dental appointment?
We will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth. We may need to take x–rays or scans to be able to see the extent of damage in your mouth. If you are in pain we can offer you a local anaesthetic to numb your discomfort. If you have had an injury, we will thoroughly clean and sterilise the affected area to minimise any risk of infection. Then, if you have damaged teeth, we will restore them, either temporarily or permanently, depending on the situation. If you have a severe injury or infection we may need to make an extraction. In this case we will discuss your restoration options.
We want to help you keep a healthy mouth
Getting your dental emergency seen to as quickly as possible is the key to protecting your oral health for the future. If you have a toothache, lost or broken crown, chipped tooth, knocked out tooth, abscess, or another dental trauma, we can take care of you.
