Below are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) pertaining to dental emergencies:
A toothache can be very painful, there are some over-the-counter painkillers that will help reduce the pain, the best ones being non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) tablets like ibuprofen.
NSAIDs can be better for dental pain because they are both pain relievers and good anti-inflammatories.
Never put any painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue. For contraindications, side-effects and maximum doses, always read the label and ask your pharmacist for advice.
Abscesses are infections that occur around the root of a tooth or in the space between the teeth and gums. If you are suffering from acute pain with or without swollen gums or face this could be a sign of infection or abscess and you should contact us as soon as possible.
Antibiotics may be recommended to help kill the bacteria that’s causing the swelling, tissue damage and infection, this should also help to relieve the pain.
Initially cleanse the affected area with a mild salt-water solution then apply pressure using a cold compress for a minimum of 5 to 10 minutes.
Contact us as quickly as possible so we can book an emergency appointment for you, if the accident happens out of hours please call NHS on 111 or visit your nearest A&E department.
Knocked out teeth have the highest chances of being saved if they are returned to their socket within 1 hour of being knocked out.
Immediate action to be taken, retrieve the tooth, hold it by the crown (the part that is usually exposed in the mouth), and rinse off the tooth root with water if it's dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, try to put the tooth back in place. Make sure it's facing the right way. Never force it into the socket.
If it's not possible to reinsert the tooth, put the tooth in a small container of milk (or cup of water that contains a pinch of table salt, if milk is not available).
Yes, severe toothaches can indicate serious issues like infection or abscess and should be addressed immediately to prevent further complications.
If you need emergency dental care out-of-hours, please call NHS 111 or visit you nearest A&E department.
The practice provides access for disabled patients and there is car park at front of the building.
