Emergency care

Here for you when you need us

We know how distressing a dental emergency can be, which is why we to try to see you as soon as we can, usually on the very same day.

The following can be considered dental emergencies:

  • Tooth decay causing pain
  • A broken or lost tooth
  • A lost or broken filling, crown, bridge or denture
  • An infected tooth

We aim to offer you an appointment swiftly, so we can prevent any problems from getting worse and help you avoid more involved and expensive treatment.

If you are waiting to be seen, the following tips may help:

  • Toothache – rinse with warm water and use a cold compress to reduce any swelling. Over-the-counter painkillers can also help.
  • Lost filling – you can put sugar-free chewing gum or temporary dental filling material in the cavity, as well as chewing on the other side of your mouth.
  • Lost crown – if your crown is still intact, use sugar-free chewing gum or dental cement to stick it in position. If broken, keep the pieces and protect the cavity as described above.
  • Knocked out tooth – pick up the tooth by the crown (the part that usually shows in your mouth) and rinse carefully with water. You can try to put the tooth back in position but make sure it is the right way round. If this is not possible, store it in milk (or water with a little salt). Do not put a baby tooth back in position as it can harm the permanent tooth underneath.
  • Broken tooth – gently rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce any swelling.keep any pieces of tooth and store them in milk or salty water.
