Are you suffering from a cracked tooth, intense pain or maybe an urgent need to see an emergency dental practitioner?
Our team understand how bothersome this may be and therefore try to relieve patients of any dental pain or distress promptly.
A dental infection may spread very rapidly, so swift treatment can certainly prevent issues from developing.
Often, these kinds of problems take place at the weekend, on a Bank Holiday or perhaps if you have an important event when your normal dentist is not open. If your issue is impacting your sleep or maybe causing you problems whilst you eat, why not schedule an immediate dental appointment now? We will endeavour to treat you on the same day.
We offer emergency scheduled appointments to our patients suffering from pain usually within 24 hours – often on the same day, whenever practical.
Even in cases where you haven’t visited our practice in the past, and are trying to find urgent dental care, we’ll do whatever we can to help.
Quick and practical natural remedies for emergency dental problems:
- Stay clear of extremely hot or cold meals and drinks

- Add some clove oil onto a piece of cotton wool to apply nearby the problem tooth

Recommendations on dental emergencies
Continual, extreme soreness often indicates that one of your teeth is infected. In the meantime, non-prescription pain medication as suggested by a chemist may help. It’s also extremely important to avoid anything that could cause pain e.g. crunching hard foods or drinking hot as well as cold beverages in case this hurts more. With all cases, it’s advised to get things examined immediately.
This is frequently caused by dental infection and treatment will most likely be called for. Get in touch with the clinic without delay. In the rare event that swelling inside your mouth has actually become so big that it’s getting challenging to swallow or breathe properly, contact A&E.
Broken tooth or dental filling
If your tooth is painful, steer clear of eating very hot or cold meals and biting with that side. Medicine can relieve the symptoms. Contact the practice to have your tooth assessed as soon as possible as you risk additional injury to the tooth and possibly the dental nerve inside.
My crown/bridge has broken off
The tooth may have become hypersensitive to temperature so it’s best to avoid extremely hot or cold food and drinks. Avoid biting on that side of the mouth so that trapped food does not cause soreness. Try to keep the crown/bridge safe and bring it to your dentist. It may need to be recemented to prevent further harm to the underlying tooth and the nerve.
Bleeding soon after a dental extraction
Make certain you are complying with all of the post-operative recommendations. Avoid exercise. Administer constant pressure (10-15 minutes) to the injury using the gauze your dental practitioner has supplied, or a clean section of cotton.
Dental pain shortly after an extraction
A small amount of pain along with swelling after a dental extraction can normally be managed using over-the-counter painkillers (ibuprofen/paracetamol). An ice pack placed on your face on top of the area can serve to help. Make sure that you refrain from smoking. If you experience unusually acute discomfort that is not helped by these steps, or which continue for several days, please contact us.
Defective dentures can generally be repaired and we have arrangements with local dental labs to have these issues handled as quickly as possible. In certain cases, it’s necessary to make an impression of your mouth so that the broken or cracked sections may be reliably identified and repaired.
Tooth knocked out
The tooth needs to be reimplanted as soon as possible. Contact our practice immediately for an urgent dental appointment. Refrain from touching the dental root in order to avoid microscopic injury to the place the bone attaches. If the tooth is noticeably dirty, clean it gently with water but do not scrub. Where possible, put the tooth back within the dental socket and keep it there until your appointment. If this is difficult, keep your tooth in cold milk.
Tooth knocked out of position
Attempt to carefully move your tooth with very light finger pressure. Refrain from eating and then get in touch with us.
Wisdom tooth soreness or infection
Our staff can check your wisdom tooth/teeth, organise an x-ray and have our oral surgeon remove it with hardly any wait times.
