Below are some recommendations for temporary relief until you see us;

You have toothache

There are several reasons for the occurrence of toothache, but it is usually due to dental infection. If the toothache has become worse over time, use warm water to rinse your mouth and then gently floss to remove any bits of food that could cause infection. A specialist mouthwash, such as Corsodyl, can work to stop surplus bacteria. It is important to get in touch with the dentist, in order to receive treatment and prevent the spread of infection.

Although over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen and paracetamol can sometimes lessen the pain of sore teeth and gums, do not let them rest on your gums as this can cause the gum tissue to burn. You should make sure that you read the label first and avoid going over the maximum dose.

You have a swelling

Usually, a swelling occurs because of an infection. There might be a slight infection in your teeth or gum tissue, or it may be the start of a dental abscess that has to be drained. An infected swelling would usually feel quite tender and warm to the touch. You have to call immediately so you could be accurately diagnosed. After checking your teeth thoroughly, an appropriate treatment would be prescribed, as well a course of antibiotics.

You have a loose or lost crown, veneer or bridge

It is important to keep the crown or veneer secure so you can have it re-cemented as soon as you can to prevent further damage. The tooth may be sensitive to temperature so avoid eating and drinking on it and contact us immediately to secure an emergency appointment.You have a broken tooth

If you have had some kind of injury and a section of your tooth has been damaged or knocked out, please contact the practice right away for an emergency appointment. Cleaning out your mouth using warm water is helpful though the area may be temperature sensitive and you can use a cold compress for any swelling. Treatment will depend on the degree of damage so it is important to see us for an early diagnosis and treatment

You have a knocked out tooth

If it so happens that your tooth is knocked out, softly lift it up by its crown and wash it carefully. There can be gum tissue remaining so leave it in place, and if you can, put the tooth back within the empty socket. If this isn't possible put milk into a container and put the tooth inside it, or gently place the tooth inside the mouth against the cheek until you get to the dentist. The sooner you attend the dental clinic the more chance you have to save your tooth, so call as soon as possible for an appointment.

You have bitten your lip or tongue badly

If by accident you bite your lip or tongue and you are in pain and there is some bleeding try to halt the bleeding with a compress or cloth pressed on the area for several minutes. If you are unable to halt the bleeding, visit your closest A&E department because you may need stitches. Try to avoid hot drinks and strenuous exercise for the rest of the day

Your are worried your jaw is broken

Pain following an injury or accident involving your jaw means you may need to attend your local hospital. Apply a cold cloth to the area to ease swelling.
