Looking for an Emergency Dentist in Liverpool?

If you have a toothache or chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or an injury, it can be a traumatic experience. It’s very important that you see a dentist immediately, even if the tooth is just slightly chipped. And if you have knocked out a tooth or several teeth, the sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better because there is a chance that the teeth could be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.

It’s very important that you keep the knocked out tooth clean and avoid handling the root. In some cases you may be able to put the tooth back into the socket by biting down on a clean paper towel for around 15-20 minutes.

  • Toothache: Emergency dental care for a toothache typically involves diagnosis to identify the underlying cause, which could include issues such as dental caries, dental infections, or periodontal disease. Treatment may include dental fillings, root canal therapy, extraction, or other interventions to alleviate pain and address the underlying problem.
 
  • Swelling: Swelling in the mouth can be a sign of infection, abscess, or inflammation. Emergency dental care may involve drainage of the abscess, prescription antibiotics to control infection, and treatment of any underlying dental issues contributing to the swelling. Anti-inflammatory medications or pain relief techniques may also be provided to reduce discomfort.
 
  • Loose or Lost Fillings: Loose or lost fillings can expose the sensitive inner layers of the tooth, leading to discomfort and increased risk of decay. Emergency dental care may involve replacing the filling to restore the tooth’s structure and function. The dentist will clean and prepare the affected area before placing a new filling to protect the tooth from further damage.

  • Loss of Tooth: A Fallen tooth is a dental emergency that requires immediate attention to increase the chances of saving the tooth. Emergency dental care may involve re-implanting the tooth if possible or preserving it in milk or saliva until it can be reattached. The dentist will assess the tooth and surrounding tissues, address any injuries, and provide instructions for follow-up care.
 
  • Dental Abscess: A dental abscess is a pocket of pus that forms due to a bacterial infection. Emergency dental care for an abscess may involve drainage of the abscess, prescription antibiotics to control infection, and treatment of any underlying dental issues contributing to the abscess. Pain relief techniques may also be provided to alleviate discomfort.

  • Chipped or Broken Teeth: Chipped or broken teeth can cause pain and compromise the integrity of the tooth. Emergency dental care may involve bonding or dental veneers to repair minor chips or fractures. For more severe damage, treatments such as dental crowns or root canal therapy may be necessary to restore the tooth’s function and appearance. Broken or loose veneers, bridges, or crowns can cause discomfort and affect the aesthetics of the smile. Emergency dental care may involve re-cementing or re-attaching the restoration to restore function and appearance.
