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.
If you need to access emergency care:
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.
Urgent dental treatment:
Straight to A&E:
Non-Urgent (may need to wait):
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.
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 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.
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).
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 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.
