Recommendations on dental emergencies


Persistent, intense pain may indicate a dying or infected tooth. Use over-the-counter painkillers and avoid triggers such as hard foods or hot/cold drinks. Seek dental attention as soon as possible.

Swollen face

Infections often cause facial swelling, which requires treatment. Contact the practice promptly. If the swelling impedes breathing or swallowing, visit A&E.

Broken tooth or filling

If painful, avoid hot/cold foods and chewing on the affected side. Painkillers may help. Schedule a dental assessment quickly to prevent further damage.

Crown/bridge has come off

Avoid hot/cold drinks and eating on the affected side. Preserve the crown/bridge and bring it to your dentist for re-cementing.

Bleeding after extraction

Follow post-operative advice, avoid physical activity, and apply constant pressure to the wound using gauze or clean cotton.

Pain after extraction

Manage pain and swelling with over-the-counter painkillers and ice packs. Avoid smoking. Contact the practice if severe pain persists.

Broken dentures

We can arrange prompt repairs through local laboratories. Impressions may be necessary for accurate reassembly.

Tooth knocked out

Seek an emergency appointment immediately. Rinse the tooth gently without touching the root, reinsert it into the socket if possible, or keep it in iced milk.

Tooth pushed out of position

Gently reposition the tooth with light finger pressure. Avoid eating and contact the practice as soon as possible.

Wisdom tooth pain or infection

Our team is equipped to evaluate your wisdom teeth, arrange for an X-ray, and have our oral surgeon perform a swift removal with minimal wait times.
