Preserve natural tooth

Dental injuries can occur as a result of road accidents, dental trauma, playing sport or even biting down on a hard food. Injury like a knocked-out tooth can lead to the patient losing their natural tooth forever. A knocked-out tooth can typically be reattached if the person makes it to a dentist within an hour and tooth was stored in milk or saliva. A chipped tooth can cause injury to the tongue, become worse and lead to further breaking and damage a tooth with fillings. To avoid the risk of causing additional damage to your tooth and to preserve natural tooth, call your dentist or Emergency Dentist Edinburgh for an urgent dental appointment.

As a result of dental trauma, severe damage to teeth and soft tissues in the mouth can lead to heavy bleeding. Such injuries require urgent dental care to bring the bleeding to an end.

Patients may require suture or special gauze placement to help control the bleeding and medication for pain relief.
