We understand that in emergency situations you may be anxious and concerned. The treating dentist will be highly skilled in providing emergency care sympathetically and professionally. Even if you have not seen a dentist for some time, we will do our very best to reassure and care for you. Follow up treatment can also be provided if necessary.
Prior to any treatment being done, all procedures, costs and appointment planning will be discussed with you.
Kennett Road Dental Practice provide a set time for emergency appointments. Simply contact us as early as possible in the day to be given a time to see one of our dentists.
Patients with non-urgent problems should contact our Practice to see if we can accommodate you during that day.
It is useful to know what constitutes a dental emergency:
- SERIOUS PAIN
Should you suffer from serious dental pain it is important to seek qualified dental advice quickly as this pain can signify a dental infection or other problem which will require prompt treatment.
A swelling in your mouth or on the face or neck should be examined promptly by your dentist. Often a swelling can be caused by an underlying infection and can be accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, redness, fever or a general feeling of being unwell.
Should you be involved in an incident which causes an injury to your mouth or teeth, it is important to obtain the opinion of a dentist as soon as possible.
The above list is not comprehensive, and it is always better to get in contact with us if you have concerns rather than to wait and see if the situation improves on its own.
