What treatment to expect
What types of treatment can I expect to receive at my emergency appointment?
The main purpose of an emergency appointment is to get you out of pain and/or relieve swelling. The most likely types of treatment are:
- Temporary filling or dressing
- Nerve extirpation (removing the nerve from a tooth, this is the very first stage of root canal treatment)
- Emergency treatment following dental trauma
- Issue of a prescription if you present with either a raised temperature or swelling
Our appointment slots are limited so if you feel you can wait to see your own dentist then please do so as this could free up an appointment for someone who really needs it and who doesn鈥檛 necessarily have a dentist.
