Types of Emergencies Covered

  • Wisdom Teeth and Dental Extractions
  • Commonly the wisdom teeth, in an attempt to erupt, will be prevented in doing so by the teeth in front. As such, the wisdom teeth will remain partially or completely below the line of the gum (also called impaction). This can lead to an infection around the wisdom tooth or lead to problems with adjacent teeth.
  • We offer 24-hour round-the-clock care for wisdom teeth extractions that are carried out by our emergency dentist. Sedation is offered for tooth extractions if required.
  • There are specific guidelines for the removal of these impacted wisdom teeth which your dentist will advise you on. The procedure involves lifting the gum around the tooth back and removing the bone around the tooth. This allows for the removal of the wisdom tooth.

Broken Dentures

  • Broken dentures can disrupt many important aspects of everyday life, as they must go about their daily business without functional teeth. Accidents happen though, which is why it is important to know what to do if your denture breaks.
  • Broken dentures can significantly affect a denture-wearers life which is why it is considered a dental emergency. Without dentures, speech and eating will be affected. In turn, self-confidence will plummet, with further damage to mental and emotional wellbeing.
  • Although dentures can withstand the pressure of the jawbone, there are a variety of reasons of why they break. For example, a denture is vulnerable to the following accidents; dropping your dentures onto a hard surface, heat damage, and if boiling water is used during cleaning.

What Should I Do If My Denture Breaks?

If your denture breaks, you must see a dentist immediately for repair. There is a strong chance that your denture may break during our practice's hours of closure. However, for situations like these, we offer a 24-hour emergency denture repair clinic, in which we aim to repair your broken dentures within the same day. If, however, the damage is extensive, more time may be necessary to repair your dentures.

Abscess

Infections that are finding it hard to escape will cause swelling in the mouth and can sometimes be visible on the face. Not very many people think it, but abscesses that go untreated can be dangerous. Abscesses that form on the lower jaw can turn into something called a deep neck abscess - this can be especially dangerous as the infection can enter the bloodstream going directly into your heart, thus causing heart failure or other serious health problems.

Abscesses that form higher up on the upper jaw can be equally dangerous. Leaving this type of abscess untreated can result in the infection spreading up to your brain and affecting your eyes. Although the examples are very rare, we have dealt with extreme forms of abscesses, including Deep Neck Abscesses as well as a few very extreme abscesses, including ones which have formed on the jaw, which left patients with restricted eyesight for a few days.

Toothache

Toothache usually occurs in the teeth and around the jaws. Moreover, many different dental issues cause toothache. Usually, the pain begins suddenly and can range from mild discomfort to severe pain. It can come and go, but it can also be constant and made worse by eating or drinking. Additionally, toothache may get progressively worse as time goes on, so it is essential to see a dentist as soon as you can.

Why Does Toothache Happen?

Toothache occurs when the dental pulp becomes inflamed. Dental pulps consist of delicate tissue which compromises of blood vessels and sensitive nerves. The dental pulp can become inflamed for a number of reasons, including bacterial infection, tooth decay, receding gums, a cracked tooth, and broken or loose fillings. Other reasons for toothache that do not involve the dental pulp, include injury to the temporomandibular joint (the joint that connects the skull to the jaw), ulcers on the gums, sinus inflammation, the eruption of the wisdom teeth, and impacted wisdom teeth.

How Is Toothache Treated?

The treatment for toothache depends on the cause of the pain. First, your dentist will examine your mouth, and an x-ray may be taken of your teeth to help identify the issue. If the toothache is a result of tooth decay, the decay will be removed and replaced with a filling.

If your toothache is due to a broken or loose filling, we will replace the filling and remove any decay during the procedure. Moreover, if the dental pulp is infected, a course of antibiotics or root canal treatment may be necessary. During this procedure, we will remove the pulp, fill the space with paste, and cover the rest of the tooth with a crown to seal and protect it.

Chipped or Broken Tooth

A broken or chipped tooth is the most common dental emergency. If you have a broken tooth, you must visit an emergency dentist immediately to prevent further damage.

In the event of a broken tooth, you must not attempt to implant the broken fragment back into the gum. Instead, place it in a clean container and make sure the fragment is covered with saliva or milk until you can see your emergency dentist. The fragment may be used to repair your tooth.

How Are Your Broken Teeth Treated?

You may have chipped the edge of one of your front teeth. If this is the case, we would typically smooth out the uneven edge and replace the missing part with composite. 

A broken molar also increases the chances of the chewing surface breaking away. If this is the case with your broken tooth, we will replace the missing section with a crown or filling. Occasionally, a break can cause damage to the dental pulp, which houses a network of nerves and blood vessels. 

In this instance, a root canal treatment may be necessary to remove the damaged pulp and to prevent infection. After the surgery, we will fill the space and seal the tooth with a crown or filling to protect it.

Bleeding and Sore Gums

Bleeding gums not only feel very sore but also can be a sign of gum disease. Sore gums can feel worse than toothache as the side effects usually leave you with a burning sensation, thus making you feel irritable. If you think you have gum disease or your gums bleed during brushing or even when eating, then it is highly advisable to see a dentist.

Do not think bleeding gums will disappear on their own, after all, it is always better to be safe than sorry. Having a dentist check the health of your gums regularly is advisable.

Lost Crown

Lost crowns may have become decemented due to a variety of reasons most likely during functional eating. For our dentists, the most important issue is to ensure the preparation itself has not been damaged.

It is important to see the dentist immediately if the crown has become loose, as any exposure could result in an infection of the underlying dentine or cause the shape of the preparation to change shape which may lead to a new crown being necessary.

Do I Need to Be Registered First?

The simple answer is no. You do not need to be a registered patient at Crewe Dental Care to be seen by our emergency dentist. We will see you whether you are registered or not.

Nervous Patient?

Patients may be afraid of the dentist for many different reasons. It can be anything from the sounds, smells, or the thought of a treatment hurting. It can also be brought on from a bad experience in the past. However, more and more dentists understand their patients’ anxieties and with a combination of kindness and gentleness, they can do a lot to make your dental treatment stress free. We also offer IV sedation during normal surgery hours to help patients feel more relaxed.

Free Parking

Free off-road parking is always available outside our surgery for patients.
