A dental abscess is very painful and will need urgent treatment by a dentist. When booking today, the most you’ll pay for an emergency appointment is £99. Patients will only be required to pay for the dentist’s time.
“I couldn’t cope with my abscess any longer and booked an emergency appointment with Maida, who I was surprised could see me within the next two hours. Appointment cost £99 and left feeling so much better.”
It’s recommended to treat a dental abscess immediately.
Urgent signs to look out for:
With dental abscesses, the sooner you get treatment the easier it will be to treat and the less likely the infection will spread further.
Common causes include:
First, we will drain the abscess and get rid of the infection. Next, root canal dentist, Dr Lee, might be able to save the tooth with a root canal, but bear in mind that in some instances extraction might be necessary. The tooth can then be replaced with either a denture, bridge or implant.
Ignoring a dental abscess or prolonging treatment can lead to serious, and in some events, life threatening complications.
