Having severe tooth pain can leave people feeling utterly miserable. At Polwarth Dental Clinic we cater for non-registered patients too, meaning that if tooth pain suddenly comes on and you need to be seen urgently we can help, even if you are on holiday. Our emergency dentist in Edinburgh can resolve a variety of issues for you, including things like generic tooth pain caused by decay as well as dealing with wisdom teeth removal and reattaching knocked out or chipped teeth. Keeping a knocked out tooth in milk will keep it clean until you have your appointment, but it is important that you do not touch the root of the tooth either, as this could damage it and prevent it from being able to be replaced. If you want to try and stay one step ahead of your teeth and prevent issues from arising it is important to brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day, not forgetting to use mouthwash and floss between your teeth. Whilst not all tooth related problems can be avoided, having good oral hygiene can help prevent tooth decay and abscesses from forming.
Out of hours appointments for registered patients
At Polwarth Dental Clinic we understand that accidents and emergencies are not planned, and sometimes they can occur when our practice is not open. We know how scary it can be to have sudden tooth pain in the night and we do not want you to feel alone. Our emergency dentist in Edinburgh provides out of hours dental assistance for all of our registered patients whenever they need it, every single day of the year. It is simple to access this service, all you need to do is call our practice and listen to the instructive message on our answerphone. Whilst callouts have an upfront cost, you will be able to claim this back if you are a part of one of our several dental plans. If you are not a registered patient we cannot offer an out of hours service, but becoming a registered patient with us is easy and can be done online or over the phone. If you have any questions about our plans or treatments our dental team will be able to answer these for you.
Offering same day appointments wherever possible
When you have an urgent dental problem it’s important to get it checked out as soon as possible to prevent any further damage from occurring. Our emergency dentist in Edinburgh offers same day appointments Monday to Friday for both registered and non-registered patients. Sometimes your issue will require more than your initial appointment to resolve, but in these cases our dental professionals will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible before leaving our practice and that your next appointment is booked so you know exactly what is going on. Your practitioner will explain the details of your treatments and the reasons why your treatment was not able to be completed during your first appointment. Whilst we offer same day appointments we do urge patients to call us as early as possible during the day to arrange an appointment to avoid disappointment.
