A dental emergency can involve any form of sudden or worsening tooth pain or discomfort in the mouth or gums. It can arise from an accident or injury involving the teeth, from a chipped, cracked or broken tooth to having one or more teeth knocked out of the mouth by a flying object, for example. An existing or possible dental abscess can also be considered an emergency if it causes pain and discomfort to the patient.
Acting quickly when faced with a dental emergency can make all the difference when it comes to seeking help, as swift treatment can lower or eliminate the risk of permanent damage, as well as help to alleviate pain sooner. Leaving a problem for longer can also lead to more expensive and extensive treatment at a later date.
Due to the pressures on hospital A&E departments at the moment, it is generally advised that, unless you are experiencing serious circumstances, such as severe pain or heavy bleeding following an injury to the teeth, mouth or face, you should seek help from an emergency dentist rather than go to the hospital for treatment in the first instance. Other exceptions to this can also include toddlers and young children or patients who are immune-compromised, pregnant or already under a hospital consultant’s care for an associated issue or condition.
In addition, emergency dentists can often see you much quicker than waiting for hours in a busy A&E department in any case. Often, the answer to the question: can a doctor at a hospital help my tooth pain? will simply result in a general painkiller being provided before advising you to contact an emergency dentist for further help. So, going to the hospital can, in fact, often delay full treatment needlessly and cause a distressed patient a needless journey.
Both general and emergency dentists will generally try everything in their power to avoid pulling a tooth out. Unless you are planning a dental implant or similar treatment in the near future, a gap in the teeth can lead to other problems, such as misalignment as the other teeth move around along the gum to compensate. It can also lead to infections, bone loss and dry socket, which can be extremely painful.
If your dentist does feel that there is no alternative other than extraction, they will discuss your case with you in detail and layout all possible options and potential outcomes. It will be your decision whether or not to proceed with an extraction, which can normally be done under a local or general anaesthetic or sedation as relevant.
As with any dental treatment, emergency dentistry costs will depend entirely on what treatment is required, how complicated it is and how long, or how many appointments it will take to complete.
