Sometimes, unexpected things can happen to your teeth, and this can be uncomfortable and scary. This is why we offer emergency dental care to our patients who have these unexpected issues with their teeth. We can help to relieve your pain and treat any injury or infection as best we can as soon as possible.
What is a dental emergency?
There are a few different reasons as to why you may need to contact a dentist in Caernarfon for an emergency dental appointment. All of these issues can be painful and debilitating, so it is important to contact us and book an emergency appointment as soon as possible so we can help you.
Knocked out tooth
This is one of the more common reasons for people to contact us for an emergency appointment. Accidents can happen, and your teeth can get damaged or knocked out completely, and this is when you should contact us for an emergency appointment. When you break a tooth, it can be very painful and uncomfortable, especially when you eat or apply pressure to it. It can also put pressure on the surrounding teeth, causing them to potentially weaken.
Depending on whether you have kept the tooth that has been knocked out or not, we may be able to reattach it. This also depends on whether the saved tooth is in good enough condition to reattach. If it is not saveable, then we will make sure that we remove any bacteria or excess tissue from the area and discuss future treatments to replace the tooth.
When you have a toothache, it can be extremely painful, so this is definitely a reason to contact your dentist in Caernarfon for an emergency dental appointment. It can sometimes mean that there are bigger unknown problems with your teeth, such as an infection.
When you come in for your appointment, we will relieve your pain and try and find the cause of the toothache, then treat any problems as well as we can. This could include us taking scans of your teeth, deep cleaning the area, and more. We recommend that you contact us if you have had toothache for 2 days or more, and the pain does not ease with painkillers.
Swollen and/or bleeding gums
This is also a big reason that you would need an appointment with your emergency dentist in Caernarfon. If your gums are swollen or bleeding, this could be a sign of gum disease, which can cause many other issues in the future if untreated. This is why it is so important to contact us as soon as possible so we can examine your teeth and try to determine whether it is gum disease or not, and treat it accordingly.
