FAQs

 In the event of an emergency, immediately call the dental practice and schedule an appointment. Describe your emergency in detail so you can get instant advice before your scheduled appointment

Immediately contact a dentist in case you are suffering from a toothache. Take some recommended painkillers like Paracetamol or Ibuprofen. You should make sure that you read the label first and avoid going over the maximum dose.

Usually, a swelling occurs because of an infection. There might be a slight infection in your teeth or gum tissue, or there might even be large amount of abscess that has to be drained. An infected swelling would usually feel quite tender and warm to the touch. You have to call immediately so you could be accurately diagnosed. After checking your teeth thoroughly, an appropriate treatment would be prescribed, as well as antibiotics.

If your crown falls off then you should keep it safe and immediately call us to make an appointment to get it recemented. If there is any damage to the tooth underneath or to the crown then you may need a new crown.

Usually, a broken denture is relatively easy to repair. But never attempt to repair it on your own since this could result to further damage. Immediately schedule an appointment for repair.

Dental injuries include teeth that may be forced out of their position (extruded), broken (fractured) or knocked out. Injuries to the mouth are generally painful and have to be immediately treated by a dentist.

Knocked Out Teeth

Once a tooth has been knocked out, you should recover it and remove any dirt or debris by washing it. You should not handle the root so you could protect the fibers in the root surface. But you can try to put the clean tooth back in its socket since it is possible to re-implant the tooth within 30 minutes of injury. Or you could alternatively store the tooth inside a glass of cold milk. Immediately schedule an appointment by calling the dental emergency hotline.

Extruding Teeth

If the tooth is pushed inward or outward and is out of place, you should apply a light finger pressure to reposition it to its normal alignment. Do not force it into its socket. Use a moist tissue or gauze to hold the tooth in its place. Immediately see a dentist.

Fractured Teeth

The treatment of a fractured tooth depends on the degree of its injury. But whatever the degree of damage might be, you should see a dentist to get the appropriate treatment. Do not panic because it is easy to restore a fractured tooth. But if it feels painful, try to avoid biting in that area or eating hot or cold foods for the mean time.

Minor Fracture

For a minor fracture, a dentist can smooth it out and minimize the injury or do a composite restoration to it. It’s very important to take extra care of your tooth for several days after the treatment.

Moderate Fracture

You may have a moderate fracture if there is damage to your enamel, dentin or pulp. A permanent crown may be used if there is no permanent damage to the pulp. But if there were damage to it, then you would need further treatment.

Severe Fracture

Usually, a severe fracture would mean that the tooth is traumatized and there is little chance of recovery. Dental injuries include puncture wounds, tears and lacerations to the tongue, cheek or lips. In the event of an injury, have the wound cleaned, sutured and repaired. If there is bleeding due to a tongue laceration, then try to pull the tongue forward and use gauze to put some pressure on it.

 It costs £40 to be seen and assessed – please note this does not include the price for other supplementary examinations that may be required such as X-rays or the cost of any possible treatment that may be needed.
