Can my Pinner dentist help in a dental emergency?
When unexpected things happen with your teeth, you want to know that you can get high-quality emergency dental care, and this is where we come in. At Apple Dental Studio, we are dedicated to helping you in your time of need, for various dental emergencies.
What can we help with?
There are a few different reasons as to why you may contact us for an emergency dental appointment, and if you are experiencing any of them and are concerned about your oral health you should see our Pinner dentist as soon as possible.
Having toothache can be extremely painful, and can sometimes mean there are underlying issues with your teeth. You may experience swelling, extreme sensitivity, and pain, which can all stop you from doing your normal day-to-day routine. If you are experiencing toothache, it is definitely a reason to contact our Pinner dentist for an emergency dental appointment.
When you come in for an emergency appointment for toothache, we will numb the area for you and examine your teeth. We will do the best we can to find out what is causing the toothache and alleviate the pain as much as possible. We may also take scans or X-rays of your teeth if we feel it is necessary to find out what the cause is. Once we have got all the information we need, we will create a plan for you to get future treatment if it is needed.
Chipped or broken tooth
Accidents happen, and you may have chipped or broken one or more of your teeth, and this is definitely a good reason to contact our Pinner dentist for an emergency appointment. Having a damaged tooth can put it at risk of irreparable damage or risk damage to the surrounding teeth, so it is important to come and see us as soon as possible. If you have a piece of tooth that has broken off, or if it is a smaller crack, we may be able to repair it there and then. In more severe cases, where the natural tooth cannot be repaired, we will extract it to protect your gums and other teeth. If we do need to do an extraction, we will discuss your treatment options to replace it in the future.
Knocked out tooth
If you have knocked out your tooth, this can be painful, uncomfortable, and can potentially put your other teeth at risk. When you come in for an emergency appointment with a knocked out tooth, we will first thoroughly examine the area to see the extent of the damage. We will make sure to sterilise the area to lower the risk of infection, which will really help to protect your other teeth. We can then either restore it temporarily or permanently, depending on the severity of your case. If we do need to fit a temporary replacement, we will also give you all the information you need about treatments to permanently replace the tooth, as losing a tooth can weaken the ones surrounding it.
