Advise for some common dental emergencies, Windsor
Here are some of the most common dental emergencies, and some advice on how to treat the problem whilst you wait to see a dentist.
Ibuprofen is the best form of painkiller to take with a toothache, but if you’re unable to take this then use paracetamol. Please follow the directions on the packet as to how much you can take. Apply a cold compress to your tooth if you have any swelling.
Take painkillers if you are in pain and avoid hot and cold drinks. If you still have the crown, please take this with you to the emergency dentist.
Chipped Tooth Or Broken Tooth
Save any pieces of the broken tooth. Rinse out your mouth with warm water and you can apply a cold compress to the injured places to stop the bleeding.
If your tooth is painful take a painkiller and avoid hot and cold foods. Eat on the other side of your mouth if you can. You can buy temporary filling material from a chemist or use sugar free chewing gum as a temporary filler until you see your emergency dentist.
Abscesses are painful infections which occur under the tooth and can spread if left untreated. Take painkillers if you are in pain and rinsing your mouth in salt water can also relieve the pain.
Call 01753 331 081 to discuss any problems or concerns about dental emergencies.
