Covid-19 Guidance

To ensure the highest level of safety for you, your family and your community, we are following the latest government guidance around offering acute Emergency Dental Care only.

We are still here to support you as we always have been, but have adapted the way we work to include video and electronic consultation. Due to the Corona Virus, please do not attend the clinic unless you have checked with a member of our team before. Advice is changing daily, and our website is kept up to date with the latest information.

If you have facial swelling extending to eye or neck, bleeding following an extraction that does not stop after 20 minutes pressure, bleeding due to trauma, broken tooth causing pain, significant toothache preventing sleep or eating – then we are able to help you by prescribing antibiotics where appropriate. Please call your clinic for more information.

If you have a loose or lost crown, or problems with your bridge or a broken, rubbing or loose denture, or broken or loose fillings (including a chipped tooth) or have loose orthodontic wires, please follow the guidance on our website.


Keep calm and stay at home

Tips to help manage dental problems until you can see a dentist

Accessing care

  • Following recent guidance from NHS England and the Department of Health, dental practices have been advised to STOP AEROSOL SPRAYS and PRIORITISE URGENT TREAMENT where possible.
  • As well as reducing risk to staff and patients, this will also prevent unnecessary travel in an attempt to reduce virus transmission. This information aims to advise people in pain who still need to access care and also support people in managing minor symptoms at home.

If you need to access emergency care:

  • Have you or anyone in your house been self isolating?
  • Do you have any symptoms?
  • High temperature or continuous cough?

If YES to any of the above, CALL 111. They will direct you to an emergency facility with appropriate protective equipment which will allow staff to treat you safely.

What counts as a dental emergency?

Urgent dental treatment:

  • Facial swelling extending to eye or neck.
  • Bleeding following an extraction that does not stop after 20 mins solid pressure with a gauze/clean hankie. A small amount of oozing is normal, just like if you had grazed your knee.
  • Bleeding due to trauma
  • Tooth broken and causing pain, or tooth fallen out.
  • Significant toothache preventing sleep, eating, associated with significant swelling, or fever that cannot be managed with painkillers.

Straight to A&E:

  • Facial swelling affecting vision or breathing, preventing mouth opening more than 2 fingers width.
  • Trauma causing loss of consciousness, double vision or vomiting.

Non-Urgent (may need to wait):

  • Loose or lost crowns, bridges or veneers.
  • Broken, rubbing or loose dentures.
  • Bleeding gums
  • Broken, loose or lost fillings.
  • Chipped teeth with no pain.
  • Loose orthodontic wires.

Anti-inflammatories (like ibuprofen) can help reduce sensitivity from teeth. Combining paracetamol and ibuprofen has also been shown effective.

There is currently no strong evidence that drugs like ibuprofen can make COVID-19 worse.

If you have no coronavirus symptoms carry on taking ibuprofen as normal.

So until we have more information, take paracetamol to treat symptoms of coronavirus, unless your doctor has told you paracetamol is not suitable for you. (Updated: 20 March 2020)

Painkillers should always be taken in accordance with instructions on the packet. Taking too many tablets, or taking medications incorrectly will not improve your symptoms, and can cause serious stomach and liver injury which can be life threatening.

< Prev | Next >



If the tooth is extremely sensitive to hot or cold, antibiotics will not help. The decay must be removed and filled.

These home measures may help make symptoms manageable until care can be accessed.

Good cleaning with fluoride toothpaste and reducing sugar intake will help stop decay from getting any worse.

If there is a hole in the tooth, or a tooth has cracked and is now sensitive/sharp, a temporary filling can be packed into the space.

These are widely available from supermarkets and pharmacies:

Desensitising/sensitive toothpaste (like Sensodyne repair and protect) can help. Rub toothpaste directly on the affected area and do not rise afterwards. Anaesthetic gel such as Orajel can help ease pain.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom tooth pain is usually due to inflammation of the gum over the erupting tooth, which can be worsened by trauma from biting.

Most flare ups can be managed with good home care and should settle in a few days to a week:

Excellent cleaning (even if it is painful to brush, the area must be kept clean to encourage healing)

Corsodyl mouthwash (avoid use for >1 week as may cause staining)

Soft diet (soft food will reduce trauma from biting)

Painkillers (ibuprofen or paracentamol following packet instructions

Warm salty mouthwash

If you have difficulty swallowing swelling in your face or check or difficulty opening your mouth, call your dentist. You may need antibiotics if the infection is spreading.

< Prev | Next >



Although painful, most ulcers will heal within 7 – 10 days. Non-healing ulcers/oral lesions present for more than 3 weeks should be assessed by a dentist or doctor.

Warm salty mouthwash

Excellent cleaning (even if it is painful to brush, the mouth must be kept clean to encourage healing and prevent more ulcers forming. Be gentle and use a soft/baby toothbrush).

Difflam (Benzydamine) spray or mouthwash as needed.

Soft diet (soft food will reduce trauma from biting)

Painkillers (ibuprofen or paracetamol following packet instructions)

Rubbing Dentures (Denture adhesives like Fixodent may help secure a loose denture. Any sharp edges can be removed using an emery board. Remove dentures when possible if causing trauma).

Corsodyl mouthwash (avoid use for over 1 week as may cause straining).

< Prev | Next >

Pain or bleeding after extraction

Continue to take regular painkillers for several days after extraction, it is normal for the pain to be at its worst at day 3 – 4.

We cannot provide antibiotics for pain after extractions unless infection is present. We also cannot prescribe antibiotics over the phone without seeing you in person.

Some pink spit/oozing is normal after an extraction, but if the socket is bleeding freely, bite hard on gauze or a clean hankie for 20 minutes. If bleeding has not stopped, call your dentist.


Bleeding Gums

Bleeding from gums is NOT a dental emergency.

Bleeding gums are usually due to gum disease, and will not stop until brushing improves. Brush 2x a day with fluoride toothpaste for 2 minutes, concentrating especially on the areas that are bleeding. Use floss or te-pe brushes to clean between your teeth every day.

If you smoke or rinse too soon after an extraction, you risk a dry socket. This can be very painful and regular painkillers are unlikely to be effective. You should call your dentist for an emergency appointment. Antibiotics will not solve this, as a dressing is needed to cover the exposed bone.

Lost Crown

Lost Crown

  • Clean and check the crown. If the crown is mostly hollow, you can attempt to re-cement it at home if you feel confident to do so.
  • Remove any debris from the crown, you can use something like the tip of a paperclip to scrape the old cement away. Clean your tooth thoroughly. All debris must be removed from both the crown and the tooth for it to seat properly.
  • Check the crown fits without cement. Check that the bite feels correct, if the tooth feels too tall, it is not fitted correctly, double check for debris. NEVER force a crown or post onto or into your tooth, this can cause the root to fracture. If you cannot get the crown to fit, keep the tooth as clean as possible and wait to see your dentist.
  • Crowns should be replaced using a dental cement from a pharmacy like Recapit. DO NOT USE SUPERGLUE or FIXADENT to fit your crown.
  • Once you have practiced placing the crown, dry the tooth and crown, mix the cement as instructed on the packet and fill the crown. Place the crown directly onto the tooth. Bite firmly to press into place.
  • Remove any extra cement with a toothpick and floss between your teeth to make sure they do not stick together.

Drayton Dentist - Composite & Amalgam Filling

We can successfully restore the function and shape of a tooth damaged by decay with either an amalgam or composite (white) filling.

Amalgam fillings are a durable, affordable way to treat areas of decay and composite fillings offer a natural looking alternative as they are made from a less noticeable tooth coloured resin. Treatment time will depend on the material used, as well as the size and location of the cavity.

Drayton Dentist - Crowns

Crowns are natural looking covers that slot over unsightly teeth to restore their appearance and function. We offer porcelain or gold crowns which both provide an effective treatment for teeth that are broken, weakened by decay or have a large filling.

Crowns can also be used for teeth that have had root canal therapy and are stabilised by inserting a post into the tooth before the crown is put in place.

Drayton Dentist - Dental Bridges

Dental bridges fill in any gaps in your smile by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth. This replacement tooth is positioned between two crowns which slot over the teeth either side of the gap or alternatively the false tooth is attached to these teeth with a small metal wing (a Maryland bridge).

Bridges help improve speaking, chewing ability and facial shape, as well as keeping existing teeth firmly in place.

Drayton Dentist - Dentures

Our natural looking partial or full dentures consist of false teeth attached to a metal or acrylic plate and help restore the look and function of your mouth. They also offer a big boost to your confidence because eating, speaking and smiling are made so much easier.

Our dentures are made from high quality materials and expertly designed by experienced technicians to fit you perfectly, offering an effective, affordable way to replace missing teeth.

Drayton Dentist - Hygiene Services

Regular hygiene appointments are a vital part of your preventive care and will include a thorough scale and polish to remove any build-up of plaque and tartar. This helps to prevent gum disease, as well as leaving your teeth beautifully smooth and shiny.

Our hygienists keep an eye out for any signs of gum disease or other conditions such as oral cancer. They also demonstrate how to use dental tools such as brushes and floss, and will offer dietary tips to help keep teeth healthy. If we do identify the presence of gum disease, we can provide additional treatments to slow its progress and prevent it from reoccurring.

We encourage everyone to visit our friendly hygienists and that includes the youngest members of your family so they can develop good dental habits from an early age.

Drayton Dentist - Root Canal Therapy

When the inner part of a tooth becomes infected due to decay, cracked fillings, repeated dental procedures or trauma, we can carefully remove the infected pulp within the root canal system to minimise any further discomfort or prevent an extraction.

Root canal therapy removes the bacteria causing the infection, after which the canals are flushed clean and then safely sealed to prevent any further infection.

Drayton Dentist - Veneers

These thin tooth coloured sleeves fit neatly over the front part of a tooth to hide chips, discolouration or gaps.

They can be made from porcelain or a natural looking composite and are an attractive way to transform teeth with only a minimal amount of preparation required before the veneer is fitted.

Drayton Dentist - Whitening

Discoloured teeth can be lightened and brightened with our safe, effective tooth whitening procedure. By taking impressions of your teeth, we can create custom-made mouth trays that are filled with a bleaching gel and worn for designated periods of time over 2-4 weeks.

This smile enhancing technique will help eliminate stains and lighten teeth so they appear noticeably whiter.
