When might I need emergency dental care?
Even with the best dental health care plan you may at some point need extra help. No one can plan for an accident, such as falling and knocking teeth, or being injured during sports and patients may also suffer from sudden tooth pain, which is too severe to be left until their next dental check-up. For these reasons we have emergency dental care; to be sure that you can always access the dental care that you need, when you need it.
What treatment will take place?
Expect to be examined by the dentist on-call who will decide on the appropriate course of treatment for your individual case. It may be that the dentist can carry out an emergency treatment to help the problem there and then (emergency temporary) but that you will also need to return for further work later. It may also be that the dentist can give you the full treatment you require during your emergency appointment (emergency permanent). Common treatments include x-rays, pain relief, 1st stage root canal treatment, temporary fillings, re-fixing crowns and bridges, and simple extractions.
Will I be charged for this?
