Common Dental Emergencies We Treat
If you’re experiencing severe pain, swelling, can’t eat or drink, or have a tooth injury, we consider these dental emergencies. If you’re not sure you need emergency treatment, please call us, and we’ll advise you. Below are some of the most common emergencies our dentists treat here at our Wakefield clinic.
A toothache is one of the most common dental emergencies we treat by removing any tooth decay and placing a sedative dressing on the tooth.
Tooth infections often cause a painful abscess, which we treat by draining it, applying a dressing, and may put you on a course of antibiotics.
Tooth fractures or losses can be distressing but don’t worry. Our dentists will restore your teeth with splints and cosmetic fixes.
Our dentists repair and replace a wide range of damaged dental prosthetics, including lost/broken crowns, fillings, and dentures.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is considered a dental emergency?
We typically define a dental emergency as a patient who needs treatment to:
- Stop uncontrollable bleeding
- Treat severe tooth or gum pain
- Save a knocked-out tooth
- Fix a chipped or fractured tooth
- Stop a tooth infection
- Treat a tooth or gum abscess
In general, if you’re experiencing severe pain, distress, loss of function, or your condition will worsen if you don’t get fast treatment, we consider this a dental emergency and recommend you give us a call to book an emergency appointment.
How do I know if my tooth infection is spreading?
Tooth infections such as abscesses on the tooth or gums can be extremely dangerous if you don’t get them treated quickly. If you’re experiencing fever, swelling, dehydration, a quickening heart rate, pain in your stomach, or are finding it hard to breathe; please call us immediately.
Can you go to A&E with a toothache?
If you have a toothache, find swelling around your eye, neck, or mouth area, and it’s difficult to breathe, swallow, or speak, we’d advise you to call the NHS helpline on 111 immediately, and they will advise you on whether you need A&E treatment.
How long does an emergency root canal take?
Emergency root canals typically take between 1-2 hours to complete. This may be longer or shorter depending on the complexity of your dental problem.
