What is considered a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies are very common, and many dental practices are equipped to provide urgent dental treatment for patients who are dealing with a dental emergency. However it is important to be aware of what is considered a dental emergency by dental practices.
If you have had an accident or injury and you are experiencing severe pain in the mouth to the point where it is affecting your sleep, or the injury has caused consistent bleeding, it is advised that you contact your local dental practice for an emergency appointment. Other examples of dental issues which require urgent dental care include an abscessed tooth, swelling in either your gum, mouth or face which is spreading, or a broken tooth which is also causing pain.
There are however, some dental issues which although they may cause discomfort, do not need emergency dental care and rather can be treated during a routine dental appointment. Examples of these include tooth sensitivity, a minor toothache which does not disrupt your sleep, a small chip in a tooth or a broken tooth which is not causing any pain or discomfort.
If however, you are certain that your dental issue needs urgent dental care, it is important that you book an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible at your local dental practice. If you are based in Coptfold, our practice, Coptfold Dental Practice, our experienced dentist in Coptfold will be able to provide you with emergency dental treatment.
