It may be something that doesn’t really register with you to start with, that toothache of yours. It comes first for only a second, then it’s gone. Then, the flash of sensitivity increases to something sharper and longer. Over the next few days, it morphs into a throbbing pain that starts to take over your entire head, your ear, even down into your neck.
Perhaps at first, you thought this toothache was something you could safely ignore, but the longer you leave it, the worse it becomes. It’s time to get yourself an appointment with our emergency dentist in Edinburgh at Polwarth Dental Clinic.
Same-day emergency dentist in Edinburgh
If you are in pain, it’s important that you get an emergency appointment on the day you call. At Polwarth Dental Clinic, the emergency dentist in Edinburgh will see you on the day you call for an appointment.
We make a point of this. We know what can happen in a few short hours, and that’s why we won’t go home until we have seen every single one of our emergency appointments. Not every dentist that claims to offer an emergency service can guarantee a same day appointment but for Polwarth Dental Clinic, doing so is a point of honour for us.
If you are registered with Polwarth Dental Clinic, you can even call us to see our emergency dentist in Edinburgh out of hours. There is a call out fee of £135.
Whatever you do, please don’t wait if you have had toothache for more than a few days. Toothache is often linked to infection. This often means that there is an abscess around the base of the tooth, often under the gum, collecting pus. The increasing pressure is what is causing the pain and can also lead to fever. We need to be able to drain off the pus and clean out the infection.
The longer you wait, the higher the chance that any infection can kill off your tooth and then spread into the jawbone.
Do it now. Give us a ring. We’re here to help.
