I went to a&e on 20th June following an accident to my mouth and teeth.I was seen within 10 minutes by a triage nurse who called an on call dentist,he arrived within 30minutes and was extremely helpful recommending I have a chest x ray to make sure I had not ingested a tooth .Prior to seeing the dentist I had an x ray on my jaw. The following week I went back to the dental department to assess what needed to be done in conjunction with my dentist. The following week I was given an appointment for 9th July to have my damaged tooth and root taken out using a local anaesthetic,this procedure was carried out with great success and very little discomfort. The treatment I received at Torbay and by my own dentist at The Brunel Practice Newton Abbot could not be faulted so thankyou very much.
