Generally speaking, you should avoid going to A&E when experiencing a dental emergency. Doctors are not fully equipped to treat dental emergencies, so going to the hospital can end up being a very frustrating experience. You should only visit A&E if you have:
- Uncontrolled bleeding in your mouth
- Increased inflammation, making it difficult to breathe or swallow
- Swelling in your eye or neck following dental problems
Many dental practices provide an emergency dental appointment for the same day, next day, or next hour, so you should be able to see the dentist as soon as possible. Contact your dentist quickly if you need to see them in an emergency. At complete smiles we offer emergency appointments. Contact us for further information.
