Urgent dental care when you need it most!
We recognise that dental emergencies often occur when least expected, bringing with them discomfort and worry. Our committed team is ready to offer swift and empathetic assistance to tackle your immediate dental concerns.
What to do in case of a dental emergency?
Stay calm – In any dental emergency, it’s very important to stay calm! A clear head helps you evaluate the situation accurately and make the best decisions for your dental health.
Get in touch immediately – When faced with a dental emergency, speed is essential. Contact our practice immediately to get advice and arrange for an urgent consultation. We’re ready to provide immediate help and direction!
Ease discomfort and swelling – Before your emergency appointment, you can lessen pain with suitable over-the-counter painkillers. Applying a cold pack to the area can also help to bring down swelling and give some temporary relief.
Practical advice for dental emergencies
Preserve a knocked-out tooth: If a tooth has been knocked out, try to preserve it in a container of milk or a saltwater solution. This can increase the chances of successful reimplantation.
Broken tooth – rinse and protect: In the case of a broken tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to minimise swelling. Cover any sharp tooth fragments to protect your mouth.
Gentle care for toothaches: For persistent toothaches, rinse your mouth with warm water and gently floss to remove any trapped food particles that might be causing pain.
