Really any time that you chip, knock out or otherwise damage your teeth or gums we advise you to make it your first priority to visit a dentist.
Fiveways Dental is available whenever you need emergency dental care in Liverpool. Here, we’ll take a few moments to explain how to go about accessing it and how we can help at short notice.
When Emergency Dental Care Matters Most
Any accident or other form of injury that results in a chipped or broken tooth can be quite traumatic, both physically and emotionally. If you do damage a tooth it is always preferable to seek dental treatment right away. You might think that you can see the extent of the injury but you can’t know exactly what is going on internally until you have seen a professional, and acting fast can prevent further problems from developing.
If you need an emergency dentist in Liverpool, even if you’re not registered with us or not from the area, you can get in touch with Fiveways Dental on 0151 837 0800 and ask to see a dentist as soon as possible.
If you knock out one or more teeth, that is the time when it is more important than ever to seek emergency dental care. If you’re in Liverpool, reach out to Fiveways should this happen. When a tooth has actually come out, the sooner you see a professional the more chance there is that the tooth could be re-implanted.
What to do when a tooth gets knocked out
For a knocked-out tooth keep it clean, avoid handling the root and take it with you to see a dentist as soon as you possibly can.
In some cases you may even be able to put the tooth back into its socket. If it feels possible to do so, place the tooth lightly in its socket then bite down on a clean paper towel for 15 – 20 seconds. This is absolutely NOT a substitute for emergency dental care and you should seek appropriate medical attention as soon as possible but it is the best course of action, if it is possible.
