What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any problem you have associated with your teeth and/or gums including:

Toothache: if you have toothache there is likely to be something wrong with your tooth requiring immediate attention. We recommend you contact us immediately and take painkillers if required in the meantime such as Ibuprofen (for non-asthmatics) or Paracetamol. Never exceed the dose.

Chipped or Broken Teeth: A fractured or damaged tooth can be alarming but try not to panic as options are usually available to restore the tooth. If the area is painful avoid hot/cold food and drinks and try eating on the other side to relieve pressure on the damaged tooth. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen (for non-asthmatics) and Paracetamol might help. Pain free treatment is usually available by contacting us as soon as possible.

Painful Gums Swelling: Swellings is caused by infection, contact us immediately to receive treatment or antibiotics.

Lost Crown, Veneer and Bridge: Keep your crown safely so it can be recemented as soon as possible. This avoids further damage to the tooth. Call us as soon as possible to make a convenient appointment.

Broken Dentures: Dentures can be fixed on occasion. Make an early appointment for an assessment.

Knocked out tooth: If you have had a tooth knocked out please try not to handle the tooth as this can damage the root. Try to hold it by the crown only if possible. If you are comfortable to reposition the tooth do so, if not, place the tooth in milk or saline and contact us as soon as possible.
