FAQ’s

What Is Classed As An Emergency?

Most people don’t realize that dental problems have the potential to become much more significant over time when left untreated. This is why it’s crucial to be able to identify accurately what is a dental emergency and what isn’t.

Dental emergencies are classified as any situation in which you feel your life is in immediate danger. Common symptoms of a dental emergency include bleeding, broken jaw, lost fillings, and more. Contact our emergency dentists in Guildford today for further information.

Emergency Dentist Vs Emergency Room

The ER is not likely to be able to treat a dental problem unless it is a health emergency. They may use temporary measures to relieve pain until you are able to see a dentist. Your coverage will depend on your health plan. You can either check your plan documents or website or call your insurance customer service to verify coverage.

Our emergency dentists in Guildford are specialists in their respective field, with extensive knowledge on numerous amounts of oral issues. Utilising the service of our personnel will ensure you are in capable hands, with experience in abundance throughout our emergency dental practice in Guildford.

When To Call Our Emergency Dentists In Guildford

A tooth infection can spread to the jaw bone and other areas of the face, throat, and head. Call your dentist immediately if you have other symptoms along with a toothache. These can include:

  • pain that lasts longer than a day
  • pain when biting or chewing
  • fever
  • swelling
  • red gums
  • bad taste or smell
  • difficulty swallowing

If your tooth has broken or come out, go to the dentist or emergency room immediately.

What Can I As Treatment Before My Appointment?

Try these tips to soothe throbbing tooth pain if you cannot see your dentist immediately:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater.
  • Gently floss to remove food or plaque between teeth.
  • Apply a cold compress to your jaw or cheek.
  • Take over-the-counter pain medication like acetaminophen.
  • Try home remedies for toothaches like clove oil to numb the gums.

What If My Toothache Is Periodic?

Unfortunately, dental problems don’t disappear on their own and only get worse with time. So why would a toothache go away? Oftentimes, a severe toothache is caused by an infection in the nerve of a tooth (which can result from a deep cavity, fracture, or another type of trauma). Sometimes this causes the nerve to die, which explains why the pain goes away. But the infection is still there. If left untreated, it can spread to other areas of the body such as the brain and become dangerous or even fatal.

Call our emergency dentists in Guildford for more information on how to book an appointment and put an end to toothaches, whether it may be periodic or not.
