The dentist made me feel comfortable right away and knew exactly what I needed for a broken tooth. She was great at being thorough yet gentle and reassuring. Experienced doctor and friendly front desk!

Nathan Stern

I traumatically broke my 2 front teeth and was referred to Dr. Mona for dental bonding. It is shocking how much the teeth look like real teeth!  Not only did she restore my smile, but a confidence that I wasn’t aware I lacked. I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Mona and the entire experience.

Lucas Bossard

This clinic exceeded my expectations. As a first time patient, my experience was great and everyone was more than accommodating and friendly. I will definitely be back and recommending!

I was in Dubai on a holiday and chipped my back tooth. Dr Anu was comforting and gave me a temporary filling to hold me in until I returned home. The clinic was professional and I sure appreciate all they did to take care of me in an emergency.

FAQs about emergency dentist in Dubai

Here’s some guidance to help you assess whether your situation qualifies as a dental emergency:

  • Severe Tooth Pain: If you’re experiencing intense and persistent toothache, it could be a sign of an underlying issue that needs immediate attention.
  • Swelling: Swelling of the gums, face, or neck could indicate an infection or abscess that requires urgent treatment.
  • Bleeding Gums: Excessive or uncontrollable bleeding from the gums, especially if accompanied by pain, could signify a problem that needs quick evaluation.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: If a tooth has been completely knocked out, getting to an emergency dentist as soon as possible could improve the chances of saving the tooth.
  • Broken or Fractured Tooth: A broken or fractured tooth, especially if it’s causing significant pain or exposing the nerves, should be addressed promptly.
  • Loose Tooth: If an adult tooth feels loose without apparent cause, it’s essential to have it examined quickly.
  • Sudden and Severe Sensitivity: If you suddenly experience extreme sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, it could indicate an underlying problem.

Remember, your oral health is closely connected to your overall well-being. If you’re unsure whether your situation constitutes a dental emergency, it’s better to err on the side of caution and contact an emergency dentist.

If you have an object or piece of food caught between your teeth, you may want to gently remove it with dental floss. Do not use anything sharp to pick your teeth as this might damage your teeth and gums. Schedule an appointment with your emergency dentist in Dubai if you are unable to remove it yourself.

If the cause of the toothache is related to the root canal, this can potentially make your pain worse at night, since blood pressure to the jaw increases when you lay flat. Contact your dentist or leave a message for them to call you first thing in the morning.

  • Lying down in an elevated position by placing 3 pillows under your head and upper back can go a long way towards making you feel comfortable.
  • Take an over the counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen (unless you are on a blood thinner prescription).
  • Applying a cold compress or a bag of frozen peas for about 10 minutes at a time is a great way to reduce the inflammation and pain.

Sudden sensitivity can point to serious issues, such as receding gums or a cracked tooth. Your emergency dentist should help you identify the underlying cause of the sensitivity.

If the broken wire is causing any discomfort, do contact your orthodontist to schedule a visit. The first thing to do is to apply orthodontic wax to the piece of wire that is sticking out. Alternatively, try a cotton ball if you are out of wax.

  • Do not hold the tooth by the root. The root contains important fibres that are necessary for proper healing. Handle the tooth by the crown or the chewing surface side.
  • Gently, rinse off any dirt with water. Do not use chemicals and do not scrub the tooth.
  • While en-route to your emergency dentist, position the tooth back in its socket, if possible. If it cannot be repositioned, place it in a small container of milk so that the root stays moist.
  • Time is an important factor for the tooth’s survival. It is best to see your emergency dentist in Dubai, ideally within 30 minutes of the injury. However, it is possible to save the tooth even if it has been outside for 60 minutes, as long as it has been stored properly.

The permanence of injuries resulting from a dental emergency can vary widely based on factors such as the type and severity of the injury, the promptness of treatment, and the overall health of your teeth and gums. Here are a few scenarios to consider:

  • Tooth Fractures or Breaks: The extent of damage to a fractured or broken tooth will determine the potential for permanence. With timely and appropriate treatment, such as dental bonding, crowns, or veneers, many fractures can be effectively repaired, restoring both the function and aesthetics of the tooth.
  • Tooth Avulsion (Knocked-Out Tooth): If a tooth is knocked out and promptly re-implanted by a dentist, there is a higher chance of preserving the tooth’s natural function and appearance. However, success depends on the speed of re-implantation and the condition of the tooth at the time of injury.
  • Infections or Abscesses: Infections can lead to damage if left untreated. Prompt dental care, which may include root canal treatment and antibiotics, can help save the tooth and prevent the infection from causing permanent harm.
    It’s important to note that seeking prompt and appropriate dental care after a dental emergency greatly increases the chances of a positive outcome and minimizes the risk of permanent damage.

Follow-up care is an essential part of ensuring your complete oral health and recovery after a dental emergency. Your follow-up appointments will allow us to monitor the healing process. We’ll assess the state of your oral tissues, check for any signs of infection, and make sure that everything is healing as expected.
