Emergency Treatment

 

N6 Dental – for when you need urgent dental care in Highgate  

 

With good oral health care and regular check-ups at N6 Dental, we hope that our patients are able to avoid urgent dental treatment as much as possible.  Sometimes though, unexpected dental problems or accidents may happen.  When these occur, we are here, at our convenient dental practice in Highgate , to treat you as soon as possible.

 

How urgent is it?

Whilst we always try to see patients as soon as we can when they are in pain or discomfort, some cases may be more urgent than others.

 

Swellings

Swelling in the gum or general oral area is usually because an infection is present.  In many cases this will probably be an abscess which can be very painful.  You should not try to treat this yourself but call our practice on 020 8348 1546 and we will see you as soon as possible.

If the swelling is in the neck region and you are finding breathing or swallowing difficult, you should go straight to your local A&E department for treatment.

 

Ulcers, patches and lumps

If you have an ulcer, unusual patches or lumps in your mouth that have been present for a few weeks, you should make an appointment to see a dentist as soon as possible.

 

Severe Pain

Severe pain, such as when you bite down on food or which leaves you unable to sleep, dizziness or a temperature are also reasons to seek our urgent dental attention.

 

Breakages

Although not necessarily a dental ‘emergency’, we do understand that breaking a tooth can be distressing and prompt repair can also be helpful in preventing damage to other teeth as well as further damage to the already damaged tooth.

If you break a tooth or lose one in an accident, please call us as soon as possible and we will do all that we can to see you quickly.

 

Examinations and Treatments 

By examining a patient promptly, we are able to determine the cause of the problem and treat it quickly.

Whilst it can be helpful to take painkillers to relieve the discomfort until your appointment time, even if the pain subsides, we still recommend that you come in to see us at your earliest convenience. If there is an underlying dental problem, the chances are the pain will return and the problem could get worse.

 

 
For an urgent dental appointment, please call us on 020 8348 1546, explaining your specific symptoms to us and we will do our best to see you as quickly as possible.
