Advice For Your Dental Emergency

12/05/2020

A dental emergency can be frightening, especially when it occurs out of hours and you don’t know who to contact or what to do. See our latest Covid response to dental emergencies. The best way to deal with a dental emergency is to know which dental problems are considered an emergency and require treatment, and which issues can wait until the morning or be treated by yourself at home as a temporary solution.

Try not to panic and keep calm, you aren’t on your own and an emergency dentist is only a phone call away to give you advice and tell you what to do next. Not every tooth pain requires you to see a dentist; you will be given expert advice on the call of any pain relief you may need to take (including dosage required) plus any other remedies you can do at home to relieve your discomfort.

Some of the most common dental problems that occur include cracked or broken teeth, or even the loss of a tooth altogether due to an injury to your face or dental decay.

Emergency dentists in Kettering will be able to tell you on the phone whether you should come in to be seen or wait until the clinic is open, this is entirely dependent on the severity of the broken tooth and location within your mouth.

If your tooth pain is severe and you have suffered an injury that effects many of your teeth, you will be called in to be seen urgently. If you have a cracked tooth and aren’t in a lot of pain, you should wait until normal business hours to see a dentist and save the emergency appointments for patients in greater need.

Quick Tips

  • If you have lost a tooth, preserve the tooth by handling it the very minimum amount possible. Clean the tooth of any dirt (if it has fallen onto the floor or a surface) or blood and apply pressure to the gap with a compress to stop the bleeding and prevent infection.
  • If you have severe tooth pain but there is no clear source or cause of the pain, always call an emergency dentist so they can ask you questions to make a diagnosis or call you in for an appointment
  • Don’t fear calling and asking for advice, our emergency dentists in Kettering are here to help you and would much rather you call than leave it and be in agony over an issue we could have assisted with!
