    ADVICE FOR THE MOST COMMON DENTAL EMERGENCIES

    Here are some of the most common dental emergencies and how best to handle the problem whilst waiting to see the emergency dentist.

    TOOTHACHE

    Toothache can be excruciating. If you are experiencing bad pain take a form of painkiller to help ease the discomfort.

    A mixture of Ibuprofen and Paracetamol together is best so take this if your medical history allows. If you cannot take Ibuprofen then take Paracetamol on it’s own and be sure to follow the directions on the packet.

    Apply a cold compress if you have any swelling.

    CHIPPED TOOTH OR BROKEN TEETH

    Breaking or chipping a tooth can be traumatic and painful. Save any pieces of the broken tooth.

    Rinse your mouth out with warm water and apply a compress to the injured places to stop any bleeding if you have any.

    TRAUMA OR KNOCKED OUT TOOTH

    Knocking a tooth out through trauma or injury is extremely distressing. If you are in serious pain and have sustained other injuries through a fall you should go to A&E.

    If you still have the knocked-out tooth, keep it carefully inside your cheek so that the saliva will clean it. If this is not possible keep it in some milk. Do not put it in water.

    Try to avoid touching the root to protect the root fibres. Please look at the tooth rescue advice on the smiling dentist poster.

    LOST FILLING

    LOST CROWN

    If you still have the crown then take this with you to the emergency dentist.

    Take painkillers if you are in pain and avoid hot and cold drinks.

    ABSCESSES

    Abscesses are infections that occur under the tooth and can spread if they are left untreated.

    If you notice any painful swelling in your mouth book an appointment with your emergency dentist.

    You can take painkillers if you need to and rinse your mouth with salt water to relieve the pain.
