An emergency dentist can help with all manner of urgent problems. If you are in pain, distressed, or have lost a tooth, contact Polwarth Dental Clinic straight away for an appointment with an Edinburgh emergency dentist.
We keep some appointments set aside for urgent cases every day at our Edinburgh dental practice, and will always try to get you in to see the emergency dentist on the same day whenever possible. Contact Polwarth Dental Clinic now on 0131 2298143 if you believe you require an emergency dentist in Edinburgh.
The first priority of your Edinburgh emergency dentist will always be to get you out of pain, because dental pain can be very severe and upsetting. It is not always possible to fully cure a condition in a single emergency appointment, so you may need to come back to our Edinburgh clinic at a later date so that the dentist can complete your treatment. However, it is our aim to get ever emergency patient out of pain for a maximum of £70.
Among the situations your Edinburgh emergency dentist can help with are:
Lost/knocked out teeth
This is a common problem that can cause a lot of distress in patients. If you still have the tooth, you may be able to reinsert it into the socket yourself (clean it with saliva first, only touch the crown, and bite down on a clean paper towel for 15-20 minutes if you are successful). Otherwise, clean it with saliva and hold it in your cheek or put it in a clean container covered in saliva or milk, then bring it to your Edinburgh dentist.
Severe toothache – with or without a dental abscess
Tooth pain can be severe, and even mild toothache should never be ignored. You should book the next available standard appointment with your Edinburgh dentist if you are suffering mild toothache. If it is severe, even unbearable, it’s time to call the emergency dentist.
Severe tooth pain is often a sign of infection, which may require root canal treatment to fully cure. However, your Edinburgh emergency dentist will endeavour to get you out of pain initially.
