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.
