What is your emergency?

Toothache

If you are suffering from a painful toothache, something is wrong and requires attention. Contact us immediately. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol are recommended; do not exceed the maximum dose.

Fractured tooth

Fractured teeth can usually be restored so there is no need to panic. If the tooth is painful, avoid hot or cold foods and avoid eating or biting on that side i.e. relieve the tooth from extreme temperatures and pressure. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol may help. Pain free treatment is usually available by contacting us immediately.

Knocked a tooth out

  • Tooth needs to be re-implanted into its socket immediately.
  • Try not to handle tooth root too much to protect the fibres around the root surface.
  • If possible, place tooth back into the socket and splint in place with silver paper.
  • DO NOT place tooth in water.
  • DO place tooth in cold milk or on one side of your mouth between your teeth and cheeks
  • Contact us immediately

Bleeding

This is a genuine dental emergency, especially if it is uncontrollable and after a dental extraction. Contact us immediately to arrange an appointment. You may require sutures or special gauze placement to help control the bleeding. Please bring a list of any medication that you may be taking.

Dental Abscess

A dental abscess is a collection of pus that can form in the teeth or gums as a result of a bacterial infection.
There are two types of dental abscess:

  • periapical abscess (the most common type), when bacteria infect the inside of the tooth as a result of dental decay
  • periodontal abscess, when bacteria infect the gums

Dental abscesses can be very painful and tender and can make a person feel unwell.
Dental abscesses require immediate treatment, as left untreated they can cause severe pain, cause facial swellings and disrupt your day to day life.

It is important to arrange an emergency appointment to avoid the potential spread of infection. Treatment is dependent upon the severity and type of abscess, but may include root canal treatment, antibiotics, deep cleaning or extraction of the tooth. Contact us immediately

Swelling

Swellings are caused by an infection. Contact us immediately to receive treatment or antibiotics.

Lost a crown

Keep your crown safe so it can be re-cemented as soon as possible to avoid further damage and the need for root canal treatment. Contact us immediately.

Broken denture

Broken dentures can usually be repaired relatively easily. Please resist the temptation to glue them together your self as this often makes a repair very difficult. Contact us immediately to organise the repair.

Broken Braces / Wires

Problems with braces can include:

  • Broken braces (brackets)
  • Broken wires
  • Loose bands
  • Loose braces
  • Wires sticking out

Call and discuss the problem with your dentist. You may need to visit right away, especially if the broken/loose item is causing trauma to your cheeks, gums or tongue. If the problem with your braces was caused by an injury (such as a blow to the mouth), contact us immediately.

Gum Pain

Gum pain can arise from a variety of causes, and maybe the result of something relatively minor (for example trapped food) to something that may require active treatment (periodontal abscess). It is important to contact us immediately as often this pain may escalate and may very well be the initial signs of an underlying problem.
Treatment is dependent upon the cause, but can vary from debridement of the area and antibiotics to specialist periodontal treatments.
