Can A Virtual Dentist Prescribe Antibiotics?

Dental Health Advice

When you’re suffering from the pain of a tooth infection, the last thing you want to do is wait around for an available appointment or travel to find a more suitable one. Luckily you no longer have to!

At The 247 Dentist, we can offer virtual dentist appointments where our experienced dentists have the expert knowledge to assess and advise on your tooth concerns and have the authority to provide a dental prescription online.

Who is an emergency virtual dentist for?

We always suggest prevention instead of cure when it comes to dental care, but you can’t help when an emergency strikes. In this case, if you are experiencing emergency dental issues and want to get quick and effective treatment. An emergency virtual dentist is an ideal solution. 

This is not to be used as an alternative choice for a regular checkup, but instead only in emergencies to receive urgent care for a dental problem that is causing you issues.

Some common dental emergencies that we see and our virtual dentist help treat are:

  • Toothache
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Lost filling or crown
  • Broken orthodontics
  • Abscess
  • Bleeding and pain after a tooth extraction

A virtual dentist consultation will allow the dentist to adequately assess your situation by explaining your symptoms and showing them any physical issues via the video call. They can use this information to advise you about the urgency of your case and provide home care suggestions. 

Can a video dentist prescribe antibiotics?

Beyond the advice they can give, our emergency video dentist appointments are an ideal solution for people in a lot of pain who want to skip the queue at their local dentist and instead get the treatment they need quickly and effectively. 

Our emergency dentists are available via video consultations and can facilitate the prescription and delivery of antibiotic treatment directly to your local pharmacy so you can start treatment and be on the road to recovery right away. We have face-to-face emergency dentists based across England in our partner clinics, including; Southampton, Brighton, Poole, Sutton and Gloucester but if one isn’t in or near your city, a virtual dentist is a perfect option for you as you can access it from anywhere in the UK. 

A virtual dentist appointment can be perfect for allowing you the convenience of getting the advice and treatment you need from the comfort of your own home.

An online appointment can be more suitable for your schedule and help you avoid the hassle of a long waiting period and get the quick treatment you need. When it comes to tooth infections or abscesses, prompt assistance is essential. Getting a dental prescription online can prevent your condition from worsening and becoming a much larger issue like a fever. 

How to book an online dentist appointment

It’s a good idea to avoid visiting a GP when suffering from dental issues as there’s little they can do to help. Going to a doctor for dental treatment will likely result in you getting referred to a dentist as they are not specialised in dental care to provide an expert opinion. In this case, don’t waste your time and immediately book a virtual emergency dentist.

To book your emergency virtual dentist today, call us on 03301 656566 and find a time that suits you. We are online and ready to help, able to remotely prescribe antibiotics for you to collect at your local pharmacy within minutes.

Once booked, you’ll have to fill in a short medical history to provide the dentist with. After completing this, you will then receive access to our online waiting room to get the emergency advice and treatment you need.
