Are you experiencing pain and dental problems? Then you should let your dentist know as soon as possible. However, some problems are more pressing than others and in this case, a visit to an emergency dentist can be crucial for your smile and oral health.
Some people find it really difficult to understand the difference between a standard dental problem and an emergency situation. Being in pain is never a good indication. If you are unsure, call us today and we will book an appointment for you with our emergency dentist in Southgate. At Adams Dental, we carry out a wide range of emergency dental treatments to provide short-term pain relief and protect your teeth from further damage.
What’s considered a dental emergency?
Any pain or discomfort in your mouth and jaw that prevents you from performing basic daily tasks requires urgent care. If you haven’t had an accident but you are in serious pain that started without warning, you should visit our emergency dentist in Southgate. You may be in pain because of an undetected cavity or an abscess that has formed below your tooth.
Other reasons that warrant a visit to our emergency dentist in Southgate include cracked and dislodged teeth and broken dental restorations (i.e. bridges, dental implants). If your jaw is broken or you have uncontrollable bleeding in your mouth, you should visit a hospital as soon as possible.
Some things to remember
If you haven’t visited our dental practice before, it’s advised that you arrive a little earlier so that you will have plenty of time to complete the relevant paper work.
Whatever emergency dental treatment you receive, it is very likely that you will need to return for an appointment with your regular dentist.
Even if you don’t have a regular dentist, we can arrange that and we recommend booking an appointment as soon as possible after your emergency treatment.
Dental emergencies cannot always be avoided
Although a thorough dental hygiene routine can help prevent dental problems, dental emergencies happen. If you are in the midst of a dental emergency, time management is really important – call us as soon as possible.
