Dental pain can be worrying and stressful, and we’re here to help put your mind at ease.
Dental emergencies can happen at any time and can range from a toothache to a broken tooth. They can be caused by injury, infection or decay. We understand that dental emergencies can be stressful and painful, and we are here to help.
Our highly trained and experienced team of dentists are available to provide prompt and efficient emergency dental care. We will make every effort to see you as soon as possible, often on the same day you call. We understand the importance of getting you out of pain and stabilizing your condition as soon as possible.
Toothaches generally don’t go away on their own. We recommend taking over-the-counter painkillers such as Paracetamol or Ibuprofen to reduce the pain. Applying a cold compress or rinsing your mouth with salt water can also help.
An abscess is a serious infection in the root of your tooth and causes pain and swelling on the infected side. You may require a root canal treatment to clean the infected area. If left untreated, a tooth may be lost or the infection can spread. Dental abscesses are severe and require immediate attention. If we are closed, call 111 or go to an out-of-hours dentist.
Chipped or broken tooth
A broken or chipped tooth can be sharp and it’s imperative to avoid touching it with your tongue and contact us as soon as possible to receive care.
Dislodged or extruded tooth
Any type of fall or trauma to the face can dislodge your tooth and dental care is essential immediately. Maintain the pain with over-the-counter medication and call our emergency dental line for immediate attention.
Any accident or fall can cause you to lose a tooth. In this instance, you need to protect the socket. Do this by locating the tooth and reinforcing it, gently not forcefully. However, if the tooth isn’t clean or you can’t reinsert, store the tooth in milk or a pot of your saliva and take it to the surgery. If a dentist sees you within an hour, we may be able to reattach your tooth.
A lost filling can expose unprotected parts of your tooth. If you’ve lost a filling, keep the area clean and avoid eating anything which can get trapped in the gap.
A similar process to a filling; ensure to keep it clean and use sensitive toothpaste to help.
