Emergency Dental Treatment

Emergency Dental Treatment

Accidents can happen at any given time and regardless of how hard you try to keep things under control, there may be situations where you are in need of emergency dental treatment.

Emergency dental care is treated quite differently than medical emergencies. A true medical emergency often means that there is no time to waste in getting to a care facility. Dental emergencies can sometimes be managed until regular clinic hours.

What is considered to be a dental emergency?

Get results you love

In order to determine whether you are in need of emergency dental services it’s important that you take the time to assess the situation that you are faced with. This will help you to determine what the next step should be.
If a tooth has been chipped or cracked, and there are only low levels of pain, then it would not typically be thought of an emergency situation. If there is however extensive damage to one or more teeth, and there is severe bleeding accompanied by major pain, then that should be considered to be a dental emergency. Teeth that have been knocked out or dislodged should also be thought of as a reason to head to the emergency dental clinic.
An abscess or other severe infection can be considered to be life-threatening and should be seen to as soon as possible. The infection can spread if not treated in a timely manner.

What can emergency dental care treat?

If you have a dental emergency your dentist should be the very first call that you make. At our clinic we do our utmost best to accommodate emergency situations.

A tooth that can been knocked out is a situation that warrants immediate attention. If the right steps are taken right after the tooth has been knocked out, there is a good chance that the tooth can be reinserted and preserved. The tooth can be temporarily placed back into the socket or placed in a glass of milk until you are able to get to the emergency dental clinic.


A tooth that is out of alignment or is loose should be seen by your dentist quickly. You can use light pressure to put the tooth back into position until you are able to get to the dentist.

  • Teeth that have been fractured, cracked or chipped may not necessarily be considered an emergency situation if there is no pain. Your dentist can see you during a routine appointment and offer solutions to repair the tooth.
  • Injuries inside of the mouth, including tears to the lips, cheeks, and gums should be considered a dental emergency. If the injuries are considered too severe to be treated in the dental clinic, then you may be referred to the nearest A&E.
  • Any type of dental concern that required immediate attention to preserve a tooth and stop ongoing pain and bleeding should be thought of as an emergency.
  • Patients who have fixed metal braces may find that a direct injury to the face can result in soft tissue damage and also damage to the braces. It’s important that you are seen by a dentist as soon as is possible so that the damage can be assessed. The inside of the cheek may require stitches and the braces themselves may require repairs.
What happens during an emergency dental appointment?
implant-supported-dentures-dublin The first step that your dentist will take is to evaluate the situation, evaluate the damage, and take quick steps to stem any bleeding or stop any pain that you are faced with. A tooth that has abscessed or has been cracked well below the gum line may need to be removed.

  • I would highly recommend. As someone who hates the dentist and put off going for years, I can say that going to Crown Dental is probably the best dental experience I've ever had. I am a very nervous patient, but Dr. Joanna is a brilliant dentist who really put me at ease.

  • I was very lucky to come across Crown Dental 8 years ago. While other dentists were offering extremely complicated and unaffordable treatments, Erika came up with a much simpler and affordable solution to my issues. I have been going to Crown Dental all these years and have got all my dental work done there: crowns, extractions, cleanings and check-ups... I would definitely recommend Erika and her team in Crown Dental to anyone looking for a top quality, reliable and friendly dentist.

    Great dentists and friendly staff! I had bone augmentation, 2 implants and 3 crowns done. The whole process took about a year due to the complexity but it certainly was worth it. I am delighted with the results and will happily recommend the clinic to my friends and family.

    I've been a patient at Crown Dental for over 6 years. When I was younger I played professional Rugby and lost a good number of my front teeth due to a freak-accident (knee in the face). For years I had a denture, which was a hassle to eat with. It also made me self conscious in social interactions, until I could bare it no longer. Crown Dental was recommended to me and it literally changed my life in so many ways! Over this period I had 4 implants, 5 crowns, 1 bridge and several root canals done, along with a couple of fillings and cleanings. I now have an amazing smile that all my friends and family are complimenting me about, it restored my confidence and gave me a brighter outlook on life. Thank you Dr. Erika for changing my life.

And also got implants and bridges done by Crown Dental. The staff is very helpful and professional. The environment is very relaxed, you don't feel going to the dentist 🙂 . I always recommend the clinic to my friends.

  • Both myself and my husband have been Dr Erika's patients for over a decade. Crown dental is the cleanest, most equipped dental practice I have ever been to. Both dentists and the nurses are highly qualified and are brilliant with nervous patients. My husband had a dental implant done here with A+ results. Their prices are highly competitive but without compromising on quality. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

  • Getting an Invisalign treatment done here. Erika and her assistant are extremely nice people, not once did I ever feel pressured into forking out lots of money like at other dentists. I would 100% recommend family and friends to at least have a check up here and you'll see that it's a positive and professional experience all round.
