No need to wait around; help is only a phone call away with our experienced team of emergency dentists.
When pain strikes, you want to find relief as soon as possible. At Broxbourne Dental Care, we understand that patients who need to see an emergency dentist genuinely need priority attention. That’s why we keep special emergency time set aside in our day’s schedule to accommodate any Hertfordshire and Essex dental emergencies as they arise.
The three main dental emergencies we treat at Broxbourne Dental Care include:
- Toothache – For toothache treatment, you may need a filling, particularly if a toothache is a result of a cavity or tooth decay. A cavity is a hole in your tooth that has grown bigger and deeper over time. It is important to have cavities repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage and save the tooth. Fillings are now available as white fillings and can be natural looking, functional and long-lasting.
- Root canal treatment (or Endodontics) – Designed to save an infected tooth, a root canal treatment will save a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture or an abscess. It is often the last resort when other restorative procedures are no longer possible. Some indications of root canal treatment may be required include tooth sensitivity to sweets or hot or cold liquids, impulsive throbbing or severe tooth pain, and tissue swelling of the face.
- Emergency Extraction – At Broxbourne Dental Care we only extract a tooth if it is the absolute last resort. Root canal treatment can be a highly successful alternative to extraction. Even if you have significant tooth decay, there are numerous restorative treatments available.
