At Garden View Dental Care, we know that sometimes you will need to see the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield at short notice.
There are 2 main reasons why you might call the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield: injury and infection.
Injuries and the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield
Injuries often result from doing some kind of sports, such as playing rugby and skateboarding, but they can also result from car accidents, coming off your bike and also, if you are a child, from simply mucking about at school with your mates.
Whether you have lost some teeth, cracked a tooth or have chipped one, you need to call us and come in as soon as possible. Tell us what the problem is, and we will do our best to get you an appointment on the same day. If you have knocked out teeth that are intact, please let us know, as the sooner you can get to us, the more chance we have of being able to re-implant them.
Knocked out teeth should be stored inside your cheek or in a pot of milk. Never use tap water or let them dry out, as they will die. Also, be sure to pick them up by the crown and not touch any fleshy bits hanging from the root, as these are the bits that need to re-attach to your tooth socket.
Infection and the emergency dentist in Beaconsfield
If you have had a toothache that has been going on for more than a few days and is getting worse, it’s a good idea to get an emergency appointment. If the pain is throbbing and getting worse, it is vital you come to see us. This kind of pain is indicative of an infection. We can numb the area and take a look. Infection often takes the form of an abscess, which is a build-up of pus, near the root of the tooth.
If you had such a toothache and it has now stopped, don’t not come. This could be a sign that your tooth has died and the infection is spreading into your jawbone.
Store our number in your phone so that you can reach us at any time.
