Unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time and often, you end up with a dental injury or sudden dental pain when you least expect it. At Dublin18 Dental Care near Dun Laoghaire, we offer emergency dental treatment to ease your pain and ensure you are fit and healthy. Whether you have a sudden, sharp pain in your tooth, or you’ve lost a tooth after an incident on the rugby pitch, we can help.
There are many different types of dental injury and causes of dental pain; these may include:
- chipped teeth
- broken teeth
- dislodged teeth (also known as avulsed teeth)
- jaw pain
- dental abscesses
Sometimes, these issues require urgent treatment and we always try to arrange an appointment as quickly as possible when patients ring and ask to see a dentist in an emergency situation. In cases, such as a dislodged tooth, time is really of the essence and if we are able to see a patient quickly enough, we can often save the tooth.
Dealing with tooth pain
Many patients would admit to suffering from dental pain and simply hoping that it will go away; however, if you have tooth pain and it’s persistent or getting worse, the chances are that something is wrong. It is highly likely that whatever the issue, we will be able to arrange treatment very quickly, but you should never suffer in silence. If you have tooth pain, this could be a sign of decay, a fracture or a dental abscess and it’s always best to get the problem checked out.
What to do in an emergency
If you find yourself in need of urgent dental treatment, call the practice and the reception team will do their best to get you an appointment as quickly as they can. If you need help outside of normal opening hours, we also provide a weekend helpline. Our website also offers an enquiry form and one of our staff team will get back to you.
