Patients experiencing a dental emergency may struggle on keeping calm, however we always aim to give our dental health advice whenever it may be required. Our emergency dentist offers patients who are not registered with us the opportunity to book a same day emergency dental appointment at our clinic. Our twenty-four hour emergency helpline is always ready to ease our patients’ worries. Patients who are not registered with us may not be able to access our ‘on-call’ emergency dentist, however we are always happy to give advice over the telephone whenever possible.
What to expect from an emergency dental appointment at your emergency dentist in Edinburgh
At our clinic, we aim to always offer our registered (and non-registered patients) a same day dental appointment. If you are a nervous patient, which may be due to a negative childhood experience leading to a dental phobia you may wish to know what to expect from your first emergency dental appointment at our emergency dentist in Edinburgh.
Initially, your dentist will wish to relieve the pain of the dental concern, which then therefore may lead to the prescription of antibiotics, or pain relief. A temporary dressing or short-term solution may also be adhered to your tooth. One of the main purposes of an emergency dental appointment is to reduce the development of further dental concerns, however a reduction in dental pain may be considered as the main priority.
Do you offer alternative forms of dentistry at your Polwarth dental clinic?
Yes! Although Polwarth Dental Clinic is an emergency dentist, we do offer alternative forms of dentistry such as cosmetic, and restorative dentistry.
Do you offer multiple forms of cosmetic dentistry?
At our clinic in Edinburgh our team has many years of combined cosmetic dental experience. Our dental clinic boasts a wide range of cosmetic options such as tooth whitening, veneers, dental implants, and discreet orthodontic options such as Smilelign.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is essentially a form of dentistry that aims to improve the aesthetic appearance of a patient’s smile. The cosmetic dentistry we offer can range from one single veneer, or a whole mouth ‘smile makeover’. Our multiple forms of cosmetic dentistry aim to increase our patients’ self-confidence, another way we can do this is by replacing missing teeth using dental implants.
What are dental implants, and why may they be a suitable option for me?
Dental implants are essentially small titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone, as an artificial tooth root, to which is then attached a crown, a bridge or dentures. Dental implants function and appear like natural teeth, and can last an extremely long time. Dental implants may be suitable if you have lost one, or even several teeth within the mouth, or if you wish for denture stabilisation.
A dental service you can trust
Located on our website we have several dental implant case studies available to ensure our potential patients can view the results they wish to achieve. We believe that our patient testimonials exemplify our welcoming approach to patients, our dental care, and our high level of professionalism.
