Advice from a Bristol dentist about what course of action to take.
With good general oral health care, including regular brushing and flossing, those six monthly visits to the dentist should hopefully result in no more than a simple oral health check, or perhaps, at worst, a minor procedure such as a filling or a scale and polish to help prevent onset of gum disease.
Even with the best will in the world though, sometimes dental emergencies arise. These can be the result of an accident or perhaps an infection which has affected the nerves of the teeth.
In most cases, a dental emergency is a painful experience and needs prompt treatment.
