Is My Dental Problem An Emergency?

14/10/2021

Things don’t always go to plan and your dental health is no different. No matter how well we take care of our teeth, dental trauma and emergencies happen. In a state of panic most people assume every dental problem could be considered an emergency and needs to be treated immediately but this isn’t always the case.

The required action with be different depending on your injury and symptoms. Some dental problems do require immediate treatment at a dental hospital, whereas most issues can be treated at home until you can get an appointment with your dentist.

Whilst worrying, dental issues such as lost fillings and broken braces/dentures don’t require emergency treatment. It is important that emergency appointments are saved for those in genuine need.

Go to A&E

If you experience the following symptoms, you must go straight to A&E:

  • Uncontrollable oral bleeding
  • Trauma that causes double vision, vomiting or loss of consciousness
  • Swelling of the face that affects your vision, breathing or prevents you from opening your mouth

See an Emergency Dentist

If you experience the following symptoms, book an emergency appointment with your dentist:

  • Gum swelling that is spreading to your cheek or face
  • Severe tooth ache that prevents you from concentrating or sleeping
  • Mouth ulcers that persist for 2 or more weeks
  • Bleeding that won’t stop after a tooth extraction
  • A broken tooth that is damaging your cheek or tongue
  • A tooth has been knocked out

Call us now on 01536 673 190 to see a dentist.
