Emergency Dentist Serivce & clinic In Blackburn
HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
Not every dental situation is an emergency!
We have listed some emergencies to help you know when you need to seek immediate assistance.
LOST OR BROKEN FILLING OR CROWN
A missing or loose filling can allow bacteria to develop between the tooth and the filling, causing the situation to worsen. The longer you keep it unattended, the higher the chances of your tooth being damaged. Hence, in case of lost, loose, or broken fillings, you should get in touch with us. Once you book an emergency dental service with our emergency dental clinic in Blackburn, we can perform the necessary tests to check the condition of your tooth. After examining your tooth, the appropriate treatment can be started immediately.
FRACTURED OR CRACKED TOOTH
An accidental fall can lead to a cracked, fractured or even an avulsed/lost tooth. An avulsed tooth is an emergency that requires immediate attention. A cracked or fractured tooth can cause sensitivity or a severe toothache if the nerve is affected. If such a situation arises, you are recommended to reach out to us immediately. If the crack is minor, our emergency dentist may repair it with filling material. However, if the impact of the fall causes nerve damage then appropriate treatment will be recommended and may include a root canal therapy.
