What steps can I take in order to cure a toothache?

In the instance that you are suffering from a painful toothache, often it can indicate that something is wrong and it may require attention. Please contact us immediately if you are feeling discomfort in order to schedule an appointment as quickly and conveniently as possible for you. Over the counter painkillers, such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol, are often recommended.

What should I do if I have dental swelling?

Swelling is often caused by an infection in the teeth or gums. In the event that swelling does occur please contact us immediately to receive treatment or potentially to receive antibiotics.

What should I do in the event that I fracture or chip my tooth?

In most cases fractured teeth can usually be restored so often there is no need to stress or panic. If the fractured tooth is causing discomfort it is advisable to avoid hot or cold drinks or foods, as well as avoiding eating or biting on that side. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol can be used to manage your discomfort.

What should I do if I have lost a crown?

It is important to keep your crown safe so it can be re-cemented as soon as possible. This concern often requires treatment as soon as possible in order to avoid damage or the need for root canal treatment.

What if I have lost a tooth due to trauma?

  • The tooth should be placed back into the socket immediately if possible
  • If it is possible we advise you to limit any handling of the loose tooth in order to safeguard the fibres around the root surface
  • If the tooth cannot be placed back into the original socket you can place it in cold milk or on one side of your mouth between your teeth and cheeks, you should avoid putting the tooth in water
  • After you have taken these steps please contact us immediately

What should I do if I have broken my denture?

Broken dentures can often be restored relatively easily. In the event that this happens please contact our dental professionals and we can normally mend the broken denture.
