General advice for emergency dental treatment
Constant, heavy soreness normally implies that a tooth is dying or infected. For the time being, non-prescription pain relief medicines as advised by a chemist can help. It’s also important to minimise any variables that could cause pain e.g. eating hard food or drinking hot or cold drinks in case that results in pain. With all cases, it’s advised to gets things looked at as quickly as possible.
This is commonly induced by a dental infection and dental treatment will probably be needed. Get in touch with the practice right away. In the rare case that a swelling in your mouth has already become so sizeable that it is getting challenging to swallow or breathe properly, call A&E.
Broken or cracked tooth or filling
If the tooth is very painful, avoid eating very hot or cold foods along with eating with that side of the mouth. Painkillers may possibly help. Phone the surgery to have the tooth checked as soon as possible since this may well raise the threat of even more damage to your tooth and possibly the nerve inside.
My crown/bridge has come out
Your tooth might possibly be hypersensitive to temperature. Stay away from really hot as well as cold beverages. Avoid eating on that side to prevent any lodged food causing discomfort. Keep the crown/bridge safe in order to bring it along to your dentist. It may need to be re-cemented to prevent further damage to the underlying tooth and also the nerve.
Bleeding following an extraction
Ensure you are complying with all of the post-operative guidance. Avoid physical activity. Put continuous pressure (10-15 minutes) to the wound with the materials your dental practitioner has supplied, alternatively use a small clean section of pure cotton.
Dental pain after having a tooth out
A small amount of pain and even swelling following dental extraction can commonly be managed using over-the-counter painkillers (ibuprofen/paracetamol). An ice bag placed on your face on top of the affected area may also help. Avoid smoking. If you continue to experience intense pain that is not helped by these measures, or, which remains after several days, please speak to us.
Faulty dentures can frequently be restored. We have measures in place with local dental labs for this to this to be done as quickly as possible. Occasionally, it may be necessary to take an impression of your mouth so that the damaged parts can be accurately positioned.
Tooth knocked out
The tooth really needs to be re-implanted immediately. Get in touch with us for an urgent appointment. Refrain from touching the dental root in order to prevent microscopic damage to where the bone tissue connects. In case the tooth is visibly soiled, wash it carefully using water however, do not scrub. Where possible, replace the tooth back inside the dental socket and keep it there until your appointment. In the case that this is not possible, preserve the tooth in iced milk.
Tooth pushed out of position
Attempt to carefully reposition the tooth using very gentle finger pressure. Refrain from eating and consult with us.
Wisdom tooth soreness or infection
Our dental team can easily check your wisdom tooth/teeth, organise a X ray and have our dental surgeon remove it quickly.
