Taking part in sporting activities can be exhilarating, enlivening and tonnes of fun. Whether you prefer tearing round a BMX track, getting stuck into a rugby scrum or facing off in the boxing ring, the physical and mental benefits of sport are many.
It’s not without risk though. If you are taking part in a contact sport, there’s always the chance that another participant, either by accident or design, could cause you injury. And even solo sports aren’t exempt from this risk: you could come flying off a trail bike or surf board and get intimately acquainted with the ground all too quickly.
If you enjoy the rush of sporting activity in and around the Scottish capital, you would be wise to have the number of our emergency dentist in Edinburgh here at the Polwarth Dental Clinic in your phone. The last thing you want in the midst of a dental emergency is to have to find a local emergency dentist in the area. If you either live, work or play in Edinburgh, save yourself the time and hassle and store the number of our emergency dentist in Edinburgh in your phone.
Our emergency dentist in Edinburgh, Dr Willie MacEachen, has seen many sporting injuries in his surgery over the years. If your tooth has been knocked out, don’t worry. There’s a good chance that Dr MacEachen will be able to reattach it. You give yourself the best chance if you can get to our practice within 2 hours of the injury.
Dr MacEachen may be able to resolve your injury at the emergency appointment; however, in the case of a knocked-out tooth, there’s the possibility that it may not go back into its socket. If this is the case, Dr MacEachen can talk to you about follow-up appointments and restorations such as crowns, bridges and dental implants.
Our emergency dentist in Edinburgh is available within working hours, Monday-Friday. But if you enjoy your sport on an evening or weekend, it’s a good idea to register with us, as you can then contact our on-call dentist outside of these times. See our ‘Emergency Dentist’ website section for more details.
