Emergency dental treatment addresses issues like abscesses or severe gum infections quickly, reducing the risk of the infection spreading and causing more serious health issues.

Common Questions

Questions? We've got Answers

What constitutes a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies include severe toothaches, knocked-out teeth, broken or cracked teeth, oral infections, and injuries to the mouth or jaw that require immediate attention to alleviate pain or prevent further damage.

Can I walk in for emergency dental treatment?

While walk-in appointments may be accommodated for dental emergencies, it’s best to call ahead if possible. This allows us to prepare for your arrival and ensure timely care.

What should I do if I knock out a tooth?

If you knock out a tooth, retrieve it, holding it by the crown (avoid touching the root). Rinse it gently with water if dirty, and try to reinsert it into the socket. If this isn’t possible, keep it moist and seek our emergency dental care immediately.

How soon should I seek emergency dental care for severe pain?

Severe tooth pain can indicate underlying issues such as infections or dental trauma. It’s crucial to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible to diagnose and address the cause of the pain effectively.

Can emergency dental care address broken dental restorations?

Yes, emergency dental care can address broken or damaged dental restorations like crowns, fillings, or bridges. Prompt treatment can prevent further damage to the tooth and restore functionality and aesthetics.

What if I have a dental abscess?

Dental abscesses are serious infections that require immediate attention. Seek emergency dental care if you experience symptoms like severe toothache, swollen gums, fever, or pus drainage, as untreated abscesses can lead to systemic complications.

Can I get emergency dental care if I'm not a regular patient?

Yes, our emergency dental care at Iriston House Dental Practice is available to both existing patients and individuals who are not regular patients of our practice. We strive to accommodate all patients in need of urgent dental treatment.

What if I experience a dental emergency while traveling?

If you experience a dental emergency while traveling, seek care from a local dentist or emergency dental clinic as soon as possible. Contact our practice for guidance or assistance if needed, and follow up with us upon your return for any necessary follow-up care.
