Articles Tooth Pain And Emergency Dentistry In The City Of London
Emergency situations can occur at any time and often accidents happen without any warning. This is why we are geared up to deal with dental emergencies at any time. All you have to do is give us a call and we will do everything we can to have you feeling comfortable again.
Tooth pain can range from mild to severe and in serious cases, it can be extremely difficult to cope with. Extreme dental pain may be the result of an injury or a dental abscess. Dental abscesses tend to cause throbbing pain, which comes and goes and intensifies very quickly; they should be treated urgently by a dentist. Treatment for a dental abscess involves removing and draining the abscess. Unlike other types of abscess, dental abscesses cannot be treated by doctors, so it’s best to see a dentist as soon as you start to experience symptoms.
If you have severe tooth pain or you have started suffering pain out of the blue and it is getting worse, call us and we will arrange an appointment as quickly as possible. In the meantime, it may be advisable to take over the counter pain relief.
Broken and chipped teeth
If you have chipped your tooth, this is not normally considered a dental emergency, but if you have broken the tooth and there is a risk of further damage, it is best to see a dentist as soon as you can. Your dentist will determine the extent of the damage and then suggest suitable treatment, which may include a new crown, cosmetic bonding or root canal treatment.
If you suspect that you have a jaw injury, such as a fracture, we advise you to go to your nearest Accident and Emergency unit.
