Everyone’s nightmare scenario is a problem occurring with their teeth and the practice is either closed or there are no immediate appointments available. In that situation we would recommend that you make an appointment with our emergency dentist in Beaconsfield.
For those who are unsure what we can help out with at short notice we’ve comprised a short list.
Perform temporary repairs
One of the main reasons you would see our emergency dentist in Beaconsfield is if you require temporary repairs to keep things in place until your regular appointment can be made. This can involve things such as providing a cover for a tooth that’s chipped or inserting a filling that your normal dentist can complete later on.
Short-notice repairs are pretty common for patients that are involved in a lot of sports or situations where damage to the teeth has a high chance of occuring. To limit the need for these types of appointments in the future we would also recommend a mouthguard to be worn, to protect your teeth from further damage.
Emergency diagnosis of symptoms
Another example of when an emergency visit may be needed is if you require someone to diagnose a problem with your teeth immediately. This could cover situations such as sudden sharp pain that doesn’t subside with painkillers or lasts for more than 24 hours, persistent bleeding of gums or sores that prevent you from eating or drinking.
At Garden View Dental Care our team will get to the root of your problem fast, to help alleviate your symptoms and get you back on the road to recovery.
Recommendation for further treatment
In some more extreme cases our emergency team can also recommend you have further treatment if it’s necessary. This can involve things such as X-rays, the introduction of a specialised treatment or an additional practitioner for a separate procedure.
In the same vein as temporary repairs, in the event that you require immediate dental surgery our emergency practitioners can step in to help you. This may be in situations such as badly damaged teeth that a quick repair won’t fix, or if a tooth has become diseased and is causing a lot of pain or other health problems.
Repairs for orthodontics
But it’s not just teeth, in the event that you damage a set of braces or dentures our team can step in to help fix them. This could be things like a broken bracket or wiring that may have snapped or become snagged and damaged, or for denture wearers if there are any cracks or breaks that crop up and you do not have a replacement set readily available.
These are just a few situations where one of our team can help you in an emergency. If you’re in need of any of the examples we listed above, then do not hesitate to get in contact with us as the sooner we can help you, the better off you will be. If you’re not sure that your situation warrants an emergency appointment then call and check, our team will be happy to alleviate any concerns you may have.
