When you need an emergency dentist in Southgate, you are, by definition, in some kind of urgent situation. You may not be thinking straight, especially if you are in shock, so if the number of Adams Dental, your emergency dentist in Southgate, is not already in your phone, then you will be wasting valuable time trying find it.
A dental emergency could be related to a toothache that has suddenly got so much worse. Toothaches can get really severe and be accompanied by swelling. If this has happened to you, then you need to come and see us as soon as possible. You could have developed an abscess or infection and the quicker we are able to deal with this, you sooner you will no longer be in pain. Conversely, the longer you leave it, the more likely you are to lose your tooth, especially if the infection has got into the root.
If you are a sportsperson or a cyclist around town, you will definitely need to put our number in your phone. There is always the chance that you will get a tooth or two knocked out when you are away from home, either cycling or engaged in some kind of contact sport or just skateboarding with your mates.
Knocked out teeth
Did you know that if your tooth is still in one piece after it has been knocked out, then there is a very good chance that we will be able to put it back in for you, if you can get yourself and your tooth to us as quickly as possible, preferably within the hour so that the tissue clinging to the root is still alive?
The best way to get the tooth to us is to put it in your mouth. Pick it up by the crown, taking care not to touch the root and, if you can, put it in the empty socket. If that’s a bit too much to ask, tuck it inside your cheek. If you can’t put it in your mouth for some reason, store it in some milk. Then call us up and get here to your emergency dentist in Southgate as quickly as you can.
