Emergency dentistry in Navan

Tuesday, 29th December, 2020

Here at Navan Dental, our dentist Meath is dedicated to helping you in your time of need, this is why we keep allocated diary spaces open just in case you need emergency dental treatment. There are a few reasons as to why you may need an emergency dentist appointment, and many of them involve experiencing pain, so it is important to book an emergency dentist appointment if this is the case for you.


Having toothache can be debilitating, it can cause severe pain to the teeth and mouth, and can stop you from carrying out your daily routine. This is when it is important to come to us for an emergency dental appointment, because if you ignore the pain and hope it goes away, this could cause further problems.

Toothache can come from many factors, one simply being tooth decay, if the decay progresses and starts to penetrate the centre of the tooth, then this can cause pain. It can also come from a damaged or cracked tooth, as this also puts pressure on the surrounding teeth as well. An infection can also be the cause of toothache, which is why we urge you to come for an emergency appointment even if the pain does go away after a couple of days. The last thing you want is to leave the toothache too long and for an infection to spread to other parts of the mouth.

Knocked out or broken tooth

Sometimes, things don’t quite go to plan, and you may lose a tooth by knocking it out, or you may chip or break it. This is when you may need our dentist Meath for an emergency appointment. If your tooth is badly broken, this can cause significant pain, and can cause you to find your daily life being disrupted. If you knock your tooth out completely, it will most probably bleed a lot and cause pain, and this is why you should book an emergency dentist appointment to try and get the tooth reattached before it’s too late (if you still have the tooth).

Bleeding gums

It is quite common for your gums to bleed when you have plaque build-up or gum disease, and hopefully you are working with your dentist to help improve these issues. But if you suddenly start experiencing bleeding gums, which are accompanied by pain or swelling, then this is when you need to book an emergency dental appointment. Try and get in as soon as possible to prevent any further bleeding, and so your dentist Meath can identify why your gums started bleeding in the first place.

Missing crown or filling

If you have a crown or filling, you may have a time when this comes out. Sometimes you can know straight away when it has fallen out, but sometimes you won’t notice there and then. You may experience a taste of metal in your mouth, this is when you should investigate to see if the crown/filling has come out. If this is the case, you should get emergency dental treatment as soon as possible to prevent you needing a more invasive treatment.

At Navan Dental, everything we do is for our patients, and we strive to ensure you have all the information and confidence you need, to call our dental practice if you are ever worried that you may need an emergency dentist appointment.

Also please be aware that we accept Irish NHS cards for a number of treatments.
