Even if you look after teeth carefully, sometimes the unexpected can happen and you can have an accident such as chipping or knocking out a tooth. That’s when you can call our emergency dentist in Edinburgh.
At Polwarth Dental Clinic, we are here for you when the unexpected happens and we know how difficult dental issues can be so we aim to see patients on the day they request an appointment.
If you do have a missing tooth or any other damage, the quicker you see your dentist, the better especially if you are hoping to have your tooth reattached. The body works fast when you have any injury to seal the area and this is what we want it to do! However, it can quickly make it less likely that the area will accept the tooth back so please do call us with as much detail as possible as soon as you can. Swift action can also reduce the risk of infection.
What we will do
We can offer a range of services depending on what you need and what you want to do. We will obviously examine the area thoroughly and may need to take x-rays to check for any deep damage.
If necessary, we can offer a local anaesthetic to assist with pain. In extreme cases, damaged teeth may need to be removed but we will explore as many options as we can to prevent this from happening and, if it does, we can talk to you about dental implants.
