If you have had an accident, you have a damaged restoration or you’re in sudden pain, it’s good to see your emergency dentist as soon as possible.
Garden View Dental Care makes emergency appointments available for a variety of dental emergencies including, but not limited to, severe toothaches, broken teeth, trauma and facial swelling. If your dental emergency requires immediate medical attention it is advised to visit the nearest emergency care centre.
Here are some common dental emergencies and how to handle them while waiting for your appointment with an emergency dentist in Buckinghamshire.
Knocked out teeth
Time is an important factor with knocked out teeth, so the first step is calling us and making an appointment. The sooner you manage to see an emergency dentist, the more likely it is that they will be able to save your tooth or teeth. While waiting, rinse in milk if possible, or suck it clean, gently removing any debris. Always hold the tooth by the crown, avoiding the root. If you can, try to reposition it in the socket, otherwise, store it between your cheek and your teeth or in a cup of milk. Never try to replace a child’s tooth, instead store in milk before seeing the dentist.
Toothaches are very common and although they can go away with painkillers, sometimes they are indicative of more serious dental problems. If you’re experiencing painful toothache, it’s best to see an emergency dentist in Buckinghamshire as soon as possible. Call us for advice and we will either see you as an emergency or we’ll book a future appointment for you.
At an appointment we will then be able to determine the severity of your emergency with x-rays and examination. Steps will then be taken to give you relief from the pain and book you in for further treatment.
If one of your restorations, such as a crown, filling, or dental implant, has come loose and fallen out, carefully take it out of your mouth to avoid swallowing it. You will then need to see the emergency dentist who will provide you with treatment.
