Understanding indicators of a dental emergency

At Polwarth Dental Clinic, we strongly believe that understanding the indicators of a dental emergency is paramount to ensuring you have the best possible chance for treatment. Whilst dental trauma resulting in the loss of a tooth is somewhat of a more obvious dental emergency, there are numerous other indicators that are perhaps slightly more difficult to identify. One such indicator that you may require a visit to our emergency dentist at Polwarth Dental Clinic, is a swollen jaw. This is often an indicator that you could have a potentially severe infection somewhere within your jaw. If the swelling in your jaw is accompanied by a bad taste in your mouth, difficulty breathing, a fever or difficulty swallowing, we urge you to seek out the help of one of our emergency dentists immediately. An infection within your saliva gland prevents it from breaking down food and bacteria and such a blockage – if left untreated swiftly, can sometimes manifest into a far more serious health concern. This is why if you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, we urge you not to hesitate and to call one of our expert, fully trained and proficient emergency dental specialists to arrange a full examination. In doing so, you may prevent a potentially serious infection from developing. If ever you are unsure about something which may be an indicator of a dental emergency, just visit our practice at Polwarth Dental Clinic to have a consultation or examination arranged by one of our committed staff, to help you take control of the problem and stop it before it can become anything worse.
