Emergency Dentist


Teeth related emergencies may be uncommon, but they can also be frightening for yourself and your friends or family.

You may have a persistent toothache, trauma to your mouth or tooth, a crown or filling that’s fallen out or even a dental abscess.

If you have pain, call us as soon as you can. Try not to leave the problem to see if it will become better with time. The longer the issue is left untreated, the more complex the treatment that may be needed.

Whilst you are waiting to be assessed:

  • If you have toothache, take painkillers if you are medically able to (paracetamol, ibuprofen, nurofen). Rinse your mouth with warm salty water to try to alleviate any pain.
  • If you have had trauma, part of your tooth or even the whole tooth may break off or fall out. Try to save the fractured part. If the whole tooth has come out (with its root), only handle the tooth by the crown – do not touch the root. Do not wash or overhandle the tooth. Place it in a cup of milk and book an appointment as soon as you can. Time is of the essence in these cases.
  • If your gums or your face are swollen, take painkillers to manage any discomfort, rinse with salty water, use cold packs next to the facial swelling and call us as soon as possible to book emergency appointment with your dentist. Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
