I have a dental emergency and it occurred out of hours
If you require an emergency dentist in Edinburgh but unfortunately the incident has occurred out of hours, then you should not panic – assistance is still available, should you need it. We understand that a dental emergency could occur at any time and because of this, you should be able to access the help that you need at any time.
If you have a dental emergency during out of hours, then you should still call us here at Polwarth Dental Clinic. You will be able to listen to a recorded message and this will tell you what your next steps are. It may be that an on-call dentist may need to be called out so you can get the dental attention that you need.
What should I do in the meantime?
After you have called us here at Polwarth Dental Clinic, then you should follow the guidance you are given over the phone. If the incident that has occurred is a knocked-out tooth then there is further guidance that you will be made aware of. This could be to ensure that the knocked-out tooth is clean. You should not use water to do this but instead use saliva or milk. Then you should place the tooth back in the part of the mouth where it came out of. You should then place a covering over the tooth and bite down to secure it in place.
