Articles Take the Panic out of a Dental Emergency!
Dental emergencies may range from broken teeth to lost teeth, toothache and facial trauma. Where a head injury is sustained with oral trauma, it is important to seek emergency medical care immediately. Most A&Es at hospitals have professionals present to treat more complex trauma.
The need for emergency dental care
At Harley Street Dental Studio we provide emergency dental care and treat a range of urgent care conditions, including:
Damaged dental devices – If a dental device, such as dentures or orthodontic braces, break, it is vital to make an emergency dental appointment to prevent further oral trauma.
Avulsed teeth – Replacing missing teeth prevents other teeth from shifting out of position and bite disorders from developing. If a tooth is knocked out, try and bring the tooth with you the dental appointment, as the dentist may be able to reinsert the natural tooth.
Missing teeth – Teeth lost due to tooth decay may be easily replaced with an artificial one, such as crowns, bridges or dentures. Dental implants may be used to secure a dental prosthesis. Emergency root canal treatment may be necessary if infection is present in inner dental pulp. Where a tooth cannot be saved, dental extraction may be necessary.
Damaged teeth – Fractured, chipped or broken teeth may be restored with dental composite, inlays, onlays or crowns. A broken tooth should be treated immediately to prevent infection.
Toothache – Teeth may become sore from sensitivity, worn tooth enamel or infection. Get emergency care for toothache so that the cause of the pain may be treated.
Facial trauma – Emergency dentists are trained to provide treatment for injuries to the lips, tongue, cheeks, gums, and palate. Cosmetic dentists are there to provide treatments to restore facial features if injuries occur.
