Emergency Dental Care FAQ

How can I tell if it's a dental emergency?

If you're not sure whether or not you have a dental emergency, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I bleeding from the mouth?
  • Do I have any loose teeth?
  • Am I in severe pain?
  • Have I been hit in the face or mouth?
  • Do I have any swelling in the mouth area?

IIf you have answered yes to any of these questions, you might have a dental emergency, and it's essential to give us a call straight away.

What can I do while I wait?

If you experience sensitivity to hot or cold for them the rings, avoid them until you can see your dentist. It would help if you also took some over-the-counter painkillers for any severe ache that you may have. Read the instructions or talk to your pharmacist if you're not sure about the dosage you should take.

If you're experiencing pain in a tooth when biting down, this could indicate an abscess, which is an emergency, so make sure you give us a call without delay.

How can I control any bleeding?

A trauma or damage to one or more of your teeth can be painful and upsetting, but you should try not to panic and remain as calm as possible. If you experience bleeding, apply a piece of clean cloth or gauze to the affected area and then bite down to apply pressure and stop the bleeding until your dentist can see you.

When you call the practice, try to give us as many details as possible about your situation and injuries so we can advise you on what to do before you arrive at the office to be seen by one of our dentists.

What should I do if one of my fillings fell out?

If one of your fillings fell out, it's important to see your dentist as soon as possible. Even if you don't experience any pain, waiting too long to get your filling replaced may cause further problems and decay. Do your best to keep the area clean until you can see your dentist and try to limit eating on the affected area.
