We CAN HELP YOU with any dental emergency!
- Do you severe nerve pain or root canal problems?
- Are your gums bleeding and sore causing you worry and distress?
- Do you have uneven, cracked or chipped teeth?
- Have you got missing teeth, or lost a tooth in an accident?
- Are you embarrassed or having trouble eating with a broken denture or cracked bridge?
- Have you lost a crown or fillings fallen out?
- Abscess or swollen jaw?
You don’t have to suffer any longer! Many of these problems are dental emergencies and should be treated immediately. The longer you suffer with the symptoms without treatment, the more expensive a remedy may be in the long term. Furthermore your dental hygiene and even your general health can be badly effected over time. With potentially more related problems arising in future, we advise you to seek help today.
COVID -19 Safe Practice
We have been working to create a robust “gold standard” of precautionary procedures and protocols that will protect our patients and staff. This goes far and above any recommendations likely to be put in place by the NHS authorities. We now have all the right equipment and new working procedures in place.
Root Canal & Nerve Pain
Emergency endodontic treatment or root canal therapy is undertaken to preserve a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. The consultation begins with a clinical assessment, including any appropriate digital x-rays, a diagnosis and costs involved. The emergency dentist (endodontist) will then give you your treatment options and possible outcomes.
Signs & Symptoms that you need Endodontic Treatment
- Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Swelling and tenderness in nearby gums
- A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums
Denture Repairs - Fix your broken / cracked dental bridge or denture
“Fixing a denture with glue is NOT recommended, since this can lead to many other oral health problems…….
Loose or broken dentures can cause problems, including sores and infections, not to mention discomfort. A loose or ill-fitting denture can also make eating and talking more difficult. It is important to get it repaired or replace a worn or poorly fitting denture or dental bridge before they cause you more problems.
If your false teeth don’t fit together properly, you can have problems not only with the bridge or denture, but also the gums, the temporo-mandibular joint and / or the muscles that move your jaw. These problems are called ‘occlusal’ problems. Teeth that are out of line, heavily worn or constantly breaking, fillings that fracture or crowns that work loose may all be signs of occlusal problems.
Cure your sore bleeding gums
Signs of Gum Disease
- Gums bleeding when brushing the teeth
- Red and swollen gums
- Tender gums
- Gums pulling away from the teeth, exposing roots and creating recessions
- Pus between teeth and gums
- Sudden swellings that are painful to the touch
- Loose teeth, or spaces suddenly appearing between teeth
- Teeth beginning to splay out
- A change in the way your teeth fit together/a different bite
Toothache - Lost a filling or other tooth pain?
The type of emergency treatment you have for your toothache depends on the reasons for the pain. BPI Dental have emergency dentists in Birmingham who will give you an oral examination and try to identify the problem. You may also have an x-ray or CT scan if the reason for your pain is a more complex case.
If tooth decay is the reason for your toothache, then we will remove the decayed area. It is always our goal to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible. The cavity will then be replaced with with an Amalgam or composite filling.
Fillings and crowns can often fall out or get broken by eating hard foods. Most patients realise they have a problem immediately. Unfortunately not everyone seeks dental treatment urgently. Over time the tooth will decay and therefore any decay will have to be removed before a new filling or crown can be put in place.
BPI Dental emergency policy and procedures means our dentists will always try to save a tooth first. Unfortunately a tooth can become un-saveable if you have left the dental problem for a long time without treatment. As a result your tooth may have to be extracted.
