If you’re in pain or have sustained a dental injury, we can provide you with an emergency dental appointment usually within 24 hours. We’ll arrange to see you on the same day wherever possible.
Emergency dental treatment options for an injury.
If a tooth is loosened or knocked out, your dentist will check to see if the tooth can be re-fixed or re-implanted. An X-ray may be taken to check the severity of your injury and determine whether there are any pieces of broken tooth left in your gum. For a chipped tooth, the severity and location of the chip will determine what treatment your dentist recommends. Treatment could range from building the tooth up with a filling, to more extensive treatment such as root canal, a crown or both.
Emergency dental treatment options for toothache
It is essential to see a dentist as soon as possible if you are in pain from toothache, or if you suffer a dental injury. In case of extreme pain or an injury that requires immediate attention, contact your nearest Bupa Dental Centre to book an appointment and for any initial advice. If your condition requires treatment, your dentist will discuss your options with you.
