Types of dental emergencies we can treat at Marine Dental Practice

At Marine Dental, we understand that dental emergencies can cause a lot of discomfort and can escalate into more severe pain, as well as create long-term problems, if not correctly managed.

Our commitment to your dental health is total and we’ll be happy to help as soon you reach out to us.

To recap: our specialists can treat all classes of emergency, including knocked-out teeth, toothache, gum swellings, dental abscesses and all the common sporting injuries.

We can also competently take care of serious mouth injury, continuous bleeding in the mouth, fractured teeth or a broken crown resulting from a fall.

Here are some more detailed descriptions of the dental emergencies we can manage:

If the patient is an adult, besides administering the right antibiotics to relieve the pain, one of the first things our emergency dental team will do is to keep the tooth moist to preserve the root structure and nerve. We will not even touch the tooth by its root. As long as there’s no choking risk, we will make sure to keep the damaged tooth tucked inside the patient’s cheek.

An alternative quick first aid tip for a knocked-out tooth is to wrap it in a wet paper towel. Alternatively, we drop the tooth into a glass of milk, as dairy milk has the required (similar) pH level.

Once we’ve kept the tooth moist and it’s been stabilised, we get the patient moved to our surgery so our dentists and staff can carry out more extensive long term repairs using the rescued tooth.

A dental abscess is a tooth infection that takes hold from the root, or between the gum and the tooth. Dental abscesses often come as a result of tooth decay, but other causes may be responsible such as dental trauma from a broken or chipped tooth, or as a by-product of gum disease or gingivitis.

If struck in the mouth during sports or after a fall, you should quickly contact our emergency dentistry team to obtain treatment and pain-relief.

If you suspect your jaw bone may have dislocated or broken, which is a serious medical condition, it’s best for you immediately to visit A & E at the nearest hospital.

We are also able quickly and effectively to handle other, less critical although upsetting dental problems such as loose crowns and broken dentures.

Whatever the dental dilemma, if it causes discomfort to you or a family member – or you think the situation requires immediate assistance – call Marine Dental Practice now on 01903 234136.

We will provide you with a prompt response and, if necessary, further treatments in a calm and relaxed environment.
