An accident can happen at any time – and it’s just at that moment when you really need to know what to do. As with many things, it’s best to be prepared. Here are the dental emergencies that really can’t wait. And, if you find yourself in a pickle, there’s good news. Drs. Nicolas & Asp has an emergency dental surgery in Dubai open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year – so you’re always near to a helping hand.
  • How does an emergency happen?
  • Teeth are strong and it takes an unusual incident for serious damage to be done. It might be that you’ve had a fall, been hit in the face by an object, or have just been unlucky and bitten down too hard. If you have an old filling that isn’t secure, it might come loose. Or, you haven’t visited the dentist in a while and a cavity or infection might have gone undetected. Having a dental emergency can be alarming - but it’s also possible to get it fixed quickly and effectively in Dubai.

    • How do I know if it’s urgent?
    • There are some situations that count as an emergency, and others that don’t. A dental emergency is a situation where urgent treatment is needed to stop a tooth being lost, to stop bleeding, or to stop severe pain. A knocked-out tooth counts as one of these scenarios, as does an abscess, which is a nasty type of infection and can be-life threatening. A lost filling isn’t an emergency, though it can hurt a lot if the tooth tissue is exposed to hot or cold. A chipped tooth isn’t urgent either. However, a broken tooth or crown is more serious. Depending on how severe it is and how painful it is, it’s likely you will need to visit an emergency dentist.

      • What to do when accidents happen
      • If you have knocked a tooth out completely, then it’s vital to keep it damp. Pick it up by the crown – the part that’s normally visible – and not the root. It should be put in milk, or back in the socket (if it’s possible to do it without touching the tooth root). Don’t delay. Get to a dentist, as it can often be fixed back in place if treated very quickly.

        • A broken tooth
        • If you break your tooth then first rinse your mouth with salt water. Cover the broken tooth if it has a jagged edge – sugar-free chewing gums works. A cold pack helps relieve any swelling. This will also help if you have cracked your tooth. If there’s bleeding, use a piece of gauze to help stop it. If there is near constant pain, then you might have damaged nerves or blood vessels and should see an emergency dentist as soon as you can. If it doesn’t hurt, it might be that you can wait until your usual dentist is open – but you should visit a dentist as soon as you can, as there may be other hidden damage.

          • Toothache
          • A bad toothache can be really miserable. Rinsing your mouth with water and using floss to get rid of any food fragments is a good place to start. A cold compress on the side of the face can help relieve the pain. If it is very bad, you should see an emergency dentist. Causes of a toothache can vary from tooth decay, to gum disease, to an infection or abscess. If you’ve been neglectful of your dental routine or dentist visits, then an emergency dentist visit is, unfortunately, that bit more likely.

            • Where to go
