Sometimes it is hard to define the need for an emergency dentist appointment.
At Ipswich Dental Care, we believe that if you have sustained trauma and/or you are in pain, it is an emergency.
Prompt treatment of the tooth can dramatically increase the odds of the tooth being successfully treated and saved. If the pain comes and goes or reduces, it can sometimes be tempting to postpone treatment.
It is important to remember that delaying treatment can increase your chance of serious infection, which can become life threatening, and also reduce the chance of a positive outcome for your tooth.
We set aside ‘emergency dentist’ appointments each day to help accommodate our patients in need on a daily basis.
We also open each weekend and two late nights a week.

If left untreated the problem will only get worse and usually more costly. In some cases where abscesses occur, the issue can become quite serious.

When people suffer from trauma to the mouth, it can sometimes result in a tooth being knocked out.
If a tooth is knocked out – remain calm and act promptly
