If you think you need dental advice urgently contact our practice and we will arrange an appointment for you as soon as possible. The sooner you contact us the more likely you are to prevent any further damage from taking place. Some people get confused about when they need to contact us at Polwarth Dental Clinic as they are unsure of whether they are really having an emergency, but there are no strict guidelines on what an emergency consists of and our dental professionals resolve an array of emergencies every day.


Resolving a variety of issues every day

From knocked out teeth and severe tooth pain to wisdom teeth removal and abscesses, our emergency dentist in Edinburgh is ready to help you in whatever way they can. Sometimes people wake up with severe tooth pain and are unsure of the causes. It is important to visit our dental practice as soon as possible so one of our dental practitioners can assess your teeth and investigate any causes of your pain. Sometimes wisdom teeth can grow through at an angle, causing infection or putting extra pressure onto your other teeth, resulting in severe discomfort. In cases where our dental practitioners cannot resolve your issue on the same day, they will endeavour to make you as comfortable as possible before leaving our practice.

If you have knocked your tooth out or a bit has been chipped off then it is important that you store your broken tooth in saliva or milk until you arrive at our practice for treatment. This will ensure that the tooth stays clean and free from damage, giving you a higher chance of having it reattached. If your tooth has been knocked out and you are able to place it back into its socket, do so with care and do not force it, making sure that you only touch the crown of your tooth and not the root. Touching the root of your tooth can cause additional damage to it and prevent it from being reattached.

Non-registered patients welcome

At Polwarth Dental Clinic, our emergency dentist in Edinburgh provides the possibility for non-registered patients and people who are visiting the area to book an emergency appointment Monday to Friday during working hours. The earlier you call during the day, the earlier we will be able to arrange an appointment for you. In circumstances where your issue cannot be resolved on the same day we will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible before leaving our practice. Unfortunately we cannot offer emergency assistance out of hours for non-registered patients, but if you would like to register this is something you can do at our practice, over the phone or through our website.
