Many people happily head to their local A&E for something as simple as a sprained wrist yet they’ll hold off having treatment on chipped and infected teeth and gums until their next scheduled dental appointment.
If you’re experiencing severe tooth or gum pain or you have visible damage in your mouth, it is essential that you see a dentist as soon as possible. You should always seek urgent advice if:
If you experience any of the above dental emergencies and live in Scholes or the Leeds area, please contact Scholes Dental Care on 0113 232 3878 for an emergency appointment with our dentist.
The sooner you are seen, the better chance we have of resolving the problem before further issues can develop. If your condition is less severe, such as a small chip or mild pain, you can make a regular appointment with your dentist for their next available appointment.

Severe tooth decay, root fractures, and abscesses can be incredibly painful, and in many cases you may need an emergency extraction to protect your other teeth.
