Emergency Dentist

Emergency Dentist Aberdeenshire

A dental emergency requires immediate attention, so Turriff Dental hopes to help in any ways possible. Whether inside business hours or out, we are here to help you access the type of dental care you need whenever you may need it.


What is a dental emergency?

It can often be challenging to know what is considered a dental emergency, but don't worry; we are here to help.

Any damage to your mouth, teeth, or gums needs to be assessed as quickly as possible to minimise discomfort and pain. It is also critical to have any energy addressed quickly, as trauma to the mouth can often lead to more severe damage.

If you experience any of the below, you should seek the appropriate help from either the Turriff Dental team or the NHS.

Dental emergencies

  • Trauma to your mouth, teeth or gums
  • A broken tooth which causes pain to your cheek or tongue
  • Abscesses or swellings which begin to develop in or around your mouth
  • Excessive bleeding from the mouth, teeth or gums
  • Lasting pain in the teeth or gums on which over-the-counter painkillers have no effect

Accident & Emergency

If you experience any of the following dental problems, we recommend you go straight to A&E to be assessed by trained medical professionals.

  • Facial swelling which affects your vision or breathing
  • Facial swelling which makes swallowing or opening your mouth difficult
  • Any experienced trauma which caused a loss of consciousness, double vision or vomiting
  • Rapid and uncontrollable bleeding from the mouth

What is NOT a dental emergency

The below are not considered an emergency, if you have any of the following problems, please give us a call, and we'll book you in for an appointment as soon as we can.

  • A minor toothache
  • Sensitive teeth or gums
  • Pain when biting down
  • Mouth ulcers (present for less than ten days)
  • A loose or missing crown or veneer
  • Discomfort from dentures
