Advice for some common
dental emergencies in Edgware
Please phone our friendly receptionists for an emergency dental appointment and they will be able to offer you specific advice over the phone. Here is some advice for the more common dental emergencies and how you can help treat them whilst you are waiting to see us.
Constant toothache can be extremely painful. Take painkillers to help numb the pain. Ibuprofen can help with any swelling but please make sure you follow the dosage on the packet. Applying a cold compress to your cheek can help ease the pain. Avoid hot and cold food and drinks.
Knocking out a tooth can cause shock and pain. If you have any kind of injuries from a fall, please see a doctor or go straight to A&E. Take painkillers or paracetamol to help with the pain. Don’t touch the root of the tooth, only handle the crown or top of the tooth. If you’re able to put the tooth back into your gum, you will have more chance of saving your tooth. If this isn’t possible, then keep the tooth in milk until you get to the emergency dentist. Do not remove any tissue fragments from the lost tooth. Apply pressure to the gum with a clean piece of cloth to control any bleeding.
Take painkillers. Rinse your mouth in salty water to alleviate the pain.
