Essential help for common dental emergencies

What pain relief do you recommend for a toothache?

Toothache can be one of the most painful experiences we go through. It will often be caused by decay resulting from poor oral hygiene and/or diet.

Self-help advice for toothache

  • Pain killers – paracetamol/ibuprofen. Please ensure you read the label, are not allergic to the medication and do not exceed the maximum dosage
  • If the pain is caused by hot things only – applying cold to the area can often have a soothing effect

For contraindications, side-effects and maximum doses, always read the label!

How do I know if I have a dental abscess?

Abscesses are infections that occur around the root of a tooth or in the space between the teeth and gums. Acute pain with or without swollen gums or face are signs of a possible infection or abscess.

If you think you might be suffering from an infection or an abscess, please contact Dental Triage as soon as possible as the infection can possibly spread to other parts of the body if left untreated.

Self-help advice for an abcess

  • Pain killers – paracetamol/ibuprofen. Please ensure you read the label, are not allergic to the medication and do not exceed the maximum dosage
  • Applying cold pressure to the area
  • Rinsing with salt water

What do I do if I have an accident resulting in trauma of the face, mouth or teeth?

Injuries to the face and teeth can cause particular alarm and be extremely distressing. We always advice you see a dental or medical professional in such an event.

Self-help advice for face, mouth or teeth trauma

  • Gently rinse out with salt water, if you feel safe to do, to be able to assess/visualise any damage
  • If it is bleeding, apply a damp gauze/handkerchief to the area for 20 minutes and remain still
  • If an adult tooth has fallen out completely, and you feel confident to do so, grab the tooth from the crown (the white part, not the brown root), rinse under water and place tooth back in its socket
    • If unable to replace, place the tooth in a cup with milk or saliva until you can see an emergency dentist
    • Please note- baby teeth are NOT to be placed back in the socket
  • Chipped or broken teeth – if causing pain then take simple painkillers such as paracetamol/ibuprofen (provided you are not allergic, follow the instructions and do not exceed maximum dosage)
  • Most small cuts to lips or cheeks will often heal on their own
