Spotting a Dental Emergency in London SE1

18 / 02 / 2014

If you find yourself in a situation where something has gone wrong with your mouth and it is causing you discomfort, it can be very easy to begin to panic, but if you were to do a bit of light reading about the nature of a dental emergency, you will know how to act if a problem strikes out of the blue. Obviously, if you get a tooth knocked out or an abscess erupts in the mouth, time is the element here: a lost tooth can actually be put back in if you get somewhere fast; an abscess is dangerous due to the poisons released into the bloodstream so again time is of the essence here. However, some situations aren’t as dramatic as these and if you know what to do, you can handle the situation calmly. If a filling, crown, bridge or a veneer becomes dislodged, yes they may cause discomfort and may cause lacerations to the tongue and gums, but by using painkillers, soothing gels and herbal oils, they can be managed until you can be seen by someone at the next available chance; these same treatments can also be applied to wisdom tooth pain. However, all of this is easy to say before the event, when it happens is totally different, so if you are worried, find a dentist- there are 24 hour ones dotted around London SE1 and the city, or you can just go to the hospital, but don’t take chances if you are unsure.
