Emergency Dental Care - Toothache Relief in Birmingham

If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or injury, it is very important that you see a dentist as soon as possible and have an emergency dentist appointment. The same goes for one or more knocked-out teeth.

The sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better the chances that the teeth could be re-implanted using for exemple dental implants, depending on the severity of your injury or dental emergency.

We can also help with toothache as a result of Wisdom tooth problems or an infected tooth that may require root canal treatment. 

Dental Emergency Appointment

Here are some of the steps an emergency dental appointment will cover a dental emergency:

1- The first step of emergency dental care is when a thorough examination of the injured area is undertaken. This may include dental x-rays to determine the extent of the damage of the dental emergency.

2- Depending on the severity of the dental pain, the area will be numbed with a local anaesthetic.

3- The injured or infected area will be sterilised to reduce the risk of infection.

4- The damaged teeth will be restored temporarily or permanently, depending on the case.

5- In severe cases the affected tooth may require extraction and dental implant treatment will be discussed.

Toothache: Emergency dental care for a toothache typically involves diagnosing the root cause, which may include issues like dental decay, infections, or gum problems. Treatment options may include dental fillings, root canal therapy, tooth extraction, or other necessary procedures to alleviate pain and resolve the underlying issue.

Swelling: Swelling in the mouth could indicate an infection or inflammation, requiring immediate attention from a dentist. Emergency care may entail draining abscesses, prescribing antibiotics to manage infection, and addressing any contributing dental issues. 

Loose or Lost Fillings: Loose or missing fillings can expose the sensitive parts of the tooth, leading to discomfort and potential decay. Emergency dental treatment may involve replacing the filling to restore the tooth’s structure and function. The dentist will clean and prepare the area before applying a new filling to protect against further damage.

Chipped or Broken Teeth: Damage to dental restorations like veneers, bridges, or crowns can cause discomfort and affect both function and aesthetics. Emergency dental care might involve repairing or re-attaching the restoration to restore function and appearance. For more extensive damage, treatments such as dental bonding, veneers, or crowns may be necessary. These interventions aim to restore both function and appearance of the affected teeth. Temporary solutions may be provided until a permanent fix can be arranged.

Loss of Tooth: A lost tooth requires urgent attention to increase the chances of saving it. Emergency dental care may involve attempting to re-implant the tooth or preserving it until it can be reattached. The dentist will assess the condition of the tooth and surrounding tissues, providing necessary treatment and guidance for ongoing care.

Dental Abscess: An abscess can form due to bacterial infection, necessitating immediate attention. Emergency care may involve draining the abscess, prescribing antibiotics, and treating any underlying dental issues. Pain relief measures may also be employed to alleviate discomfort.
