We will always aim to complete your treatment as quickly as possible and also within one appointment, but in some circumstances, there may be subsequent appointments required to achieve dental health.
Common Dental Emergencies
Tooth ache is probably the most common dental emergency we see on a regular basis. There are many reasons that can lead to tooth ache, such as tooth decay which allows bacteria to enter the tooth, causing sensitivity and pain.
Sudden trauma to a tooth or multiple teeth can also lead to dental pain. It is recommended that when you experience pain you seek an appointment with a dental professional as soon as possible. Pain is often one of the last warning signs that you are having dental problems, and to protect your teeth from further damage and pain, it is vital you see a dentist.
Technically if you are not in pain, then it will not be deemed as a dental emergency but having bleeding gums can be worrying for you to see. This is one of the more common signs of gum disease and earlier detection is important to prevent the gum disease from advancing (which can lead too tooth loss). We also recommend seeing a dental professional as soon as possible to check your dental health.
If you have any worries about your dental health or you are experiencing dental pain please do not hesitate to call us today and book your appointment.
