What to do in a Dental Emergency

Do I have a dental emergency?

The aim of our emergency appointment service in Surrey is to provide urgent dental cate to everyone in need of a dentist, without having to go into A&E for emergency dental treatment. Hospitals are very crowded at the moment, while as dentists, we are able to ensure that you have minimal human contact when you come into our clinic and you are dealt with in the most hygienic and appropriate way.

We can treat issues such as a general toothache, lost crown or filling, orthodontic emergencies, wisdom tooth pain and sensitive teeth, amongst many other painful dental emergencies. Before you need to come into our clinic we will advise you how to deal with your situation at home first, if at all possible.

Contact us as soon as you think you may have a dental emergency. We will advise you on the best course of action and try as hard as we can to book you in for emergency treatment same day you call us. 

What to do: General toothache

If you are experiencing any toothache while you are home during lockdown there are a few home remedies you can try doing to ease your pain. Over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol will definitely help with the pain. Take these painkillers as they are intended to be used. Take them orally, do not put them directly on the painful area in your mouth as that could do you more harm than good.

If you are experiencing any inflammation or swelling, using a cold compress on that side of your cheek will help reduce it. Rinsing your mouth with warm water may also help in case the pain is originating from something being stuck in between your teeth.

Taking painkillers and sticking to a good oral hygiene routine should be able to keep the pain at bay. If you need advice call our dentist in Esher and they will advise you accordingly.

If the pain intensifies or is continuous over more than two days, you need to call our emergency dental practice to book an emergency dental appointment.

No matter what your case, our emergency dentists in Esher will be able to diagnose you immediately after you call. Treatment will also be on the same day as your emergency dental appointment, so do not hesitate to call when you are in pain.

Call us today and book an emergency dental appointment with our practice in Esher now.

What to do: Bleeding gums

If you are brushing your teeth and you notice a bit of pink when you spit out toothpaste and you notice some bleeding when you floss, then you need to give us a call and book an emergency dental appointment immediately. Unfortunately, this is usually the result of gingivitis or gum disease, and your gums will continue to bleed until you are treated.

There can be many reasons why your gums are bleeding which is why you should call your dentist as soon as possible so we can get you treated. Conditions such as gingivitis are at risk of getting worse if they are left untreated.

Our team at The Neem Tree Esher are always ready to help you for same-day treatment, any day (including Sundays). Contact us now for urgent dental appointments in Surrey and we will take care of you.

What to do: Broken or chipped teeth

If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or injury, it can be a very painful and traumatic experiment. Therefore it is very important that you get seen and seek emergency dental care immediately.

It is important to save any chips or fragments you can. Bring them to your emergency dental appointment that we will give you when you call us explaining your situation.

If you have a chipped tooth or it is broken, put it in milk and bring it to us once you have booked an appointment.

When you come into our Esher clinic, we will be able to glue the fragment of the tooth back on inside your mouth. If necessary we can also perform a root canal treatment for a badly broken tooth where nerves are exposed.

We offer our emergency dental appointment to both existing and new patients. Be sure to call beforehand to book an emergency appointment as we do not take walk-ins. Explain your situation clearly on the phone so we understand exactly how to treat you when you come in.

What to do: Knocked-out tooth

You need to act fast when a tooth gets knocked out. A knocked out tooth can usually be saved and put back in place as long as you call as soon as possible when this occurs. In the case that you have a knocked out tooth, keep that tooth safe and book an emergency dental appointment.

You can keep the tooth safe in a container of milk. If you do not have milk, you can use a cup of water with a pinch of salt. The longer the tooth is out of the mouth, the chances of survival decreases significantly.

Ideally you should bring the tooth with you to your emergency appointment. Try to call us immediately and we will do our best to see you within the same hour to put the tooth back into position.

Despite the different methods that we have to save a tooth that has been knocked out, it is clear that prevention is the best strategy. Wearing a mouthguard is a great preventative method to protect your teeth while playing sports and grinding teeth during your sleep.

Keep in mind that the length of time that the tooth was out of the mouth and the way it is stored after being knocked out heavily influences the chances of saving the tooth. Your dentist will discuss the treatment options available to you on the day of your appointment.

Call us for an emergency dental appointment in Esher. We will get you into the clinic as soon as possible to examine your mouth. We will work as hard as we can to ensure that you are seen on the same day and leave our practice pain-free.

What to do: Partially dislodged (extruded) tooth

During an accident or injury, a tooth may be pushed out of its socket. Your dentist will need to reposition your tooth. This can be done best without any complications if you call us to book an emergency appointment as soon as the accident occurs.

If you are in pain we advise to use over the counter pain medication such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. This should help minimise any pain you may be feeling for time being while you wait to be seen by one of our dentists.

Please contact us immediately if your tooth is partially dislodged. We will advise you accordingly and book you in for emergency dental treatment at our Esher practice.

What to do: Lost filling

See your dentist as soon as possible.

Dental fillings don’t last forever so, sometimes they do fall out. If you notice that a filling has fallen out, your first step should be to call us and schedule an appointment.

Let us know on the phone whether you are in pain. Our emergency dental services that are open right now will ensure that you will be able to be seen as soon as possible. While you are on the phone scheduling your emergency appointment, ask for suggestions about protecting the exposed tooth while you wait to be seen by your dentist.

Keep the lost filling if you can so we can determine whether to reuse it.

In the meantime, you should focus on protecting the tooth involved. Protect the tooth by carrying out a good oral hygiene routine. Make sure to brush the area where the filling came out, very gently, you do not want to risk aggravating that area.

If a filling is not replaced within a few days, it can cause damage to the unprotected tooth. The pain that you may be feeling also may increase.

We recommend that you call us and schedule an emergency dental appointment as soon as you notice the missing filling. The quicker you can get treatment, the less risk you have to the exposed tooth.  Our clinic in Esher will be able to arrange urgent oral treatment and resolve your emergency on the same day.

What to do: Lost crown

Dental crowns are made to last for many years however, they can become loose if correct oral hygiene routines are not adhered to. If you notice that your crown has become loose or you notice that part of the crown has chipped off, our dentists will be able to resolve this within one appointment.

Make an emergency dental appointment and make sure to bring the lost crown with you.

Once you book an emergency appointment, we will examine and diagnose the affected area. We will then proceed to resolve the issue. A lot of the time this just involves cementing the crown back into place or tightening the position it is in. This is not a major procedure to be nervous about.

What to do: Broken wires in braces

If the ends of your braces wires are poking out and causing you discomfort you should call our dental practice in Esher to discuss ways to fix the issue and determine whether you need to come in for an emergency appointment.

If the wire is poking you into the cheek, gums or tongue, you may be able to trim the wire using disinfected nail clippers. Use rubbing alcohol to clean the clippers. You may need someone to help you. This is not ideal to do at home therefore, we recommend for you to come in for a quick appointment and let us help alleviate your pain.

If you need quick and immediate help with your braces in Surrey, give us a call and we can book you in for an emergency dental appointment.

What to do: Loose bands or brackets in braces

First things first: Do not panic!

Book an appointment with your dentist or orthodontist as soon as possible.

Loosened brackets or the brackets detaching from your teeth can happen. If this is causing you pain call us immediately and book an emergency appointment so we can fix it.

If your bracket breaks off entirely, just remove it carefully or if you can, leave it alone until you see your orthodontist next. You are able to use orthodontic wax to help reattach any loose brackets as a temporary fix.

What to do: Dental abscess

A dental abscess is a collection of pus that can form inside the gums, or teeth or even in the bone that holds the teeth in place. It is often caused by a bacterial infection and should be treated as soon as it is spotted.

If your mouth or jaw is aching and you realise that you have dental abscess call us as soon as possible. The sooner you call, the sooner we will be able to treat you and prevent further pain and infection.

There are remedies that you may be able to do at home to ease some of your pain, but none of these will be able to treat dental abscess. The symptoms are often quite unpleasant and you may not always be in pain. It is imperative that you call us and schedule an emergency appointment. It may be the case that you need antibiotics, that can only be prescribed to you once our dentists have assessed your situation in person.

Our clinic in Esher accepts emergency dental appointments to treat dental abscess, be sure to call and schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Our dentist will be able to treat you and give you a long term care plan to combat gum disease and prevent the same thing from happening again in the future.

What to do: Injuries to soft tissue

Soft tissue includes the tongue, cheeks, gums and lips. These soft tissues are delicate and sensitive which means that they can easily get injured.

Soft tissue injuries usually do not tend to bleed a lot even though the pain remains prominent. While you wait for your emergency dental appointment here’s what you should do:

  • If the bleeding continues, dampen a piece of gauze and press it against the injured area for 10-15 minutes.
  • Holding ice or an ice pack over the area will relieve the pain and may also slow down any bleeding.
  • If the bleeding does not stop, your injury may be serious and you should call us immediately to seek further steps on what you should do.

We are trained to diagnose and repair damage to soft tissues which is why you should call us first at any sign of injury. We will book you an emergency appointment in Esher as soon as you call us with your emergency. We will be able to repair the damage to any soft tissue as soon as you walk in.

What to do: Sensitive teeth

Sensitive teeth are an increasingly common problem. You can often use products to help the pain you feel by having sensitive teeth. Products such as toothpaste and mouthwash, designed specifically for those with sensitive teeth, will help you immensely.

If you are using any home remedies or any sensitive teeth products and they are not working for you, do not hesitate to call us and ask for any advice on your situation or seek guidance on needing to book an emergency dental appointment. We understand that in the current circumstances, sensitive teeth may not seem like a big issue, but if you are in constant pain, you should call us so we can examine and treat the root of your pain.

Many people experience tooth sensitivity and pain, which can result from the gradual erosion of the tooth enamel. Home remedies can help treat tooth sensitivity immensely before you even need to visit the dentist.

If the pain is recurrent or long-standing, it is best to have it assessed at our emergency dental clinic in Esher. We will be able to prescribe pain relief and highlight the cause of your pain.

What to do: Wisdom tooth pain

People often decide to get their wisdom teeth removed as they can cause a lot of pain. Pain in wisdom teeth may resolve by itself at home but in the event that your wisdom teeth are causing you constant pain and discomfort, you need to book an emergency dentist appointment.

In the meantime, numbing gel, Ibuprofen, and an ice pack on your cheek can help reduce inflammation and potentially dull the pain. A warm salt water mouthwash will be able to keep any infection at bay and also may be able to relieve some pain you may be having.

If your pain is severe, call your dentist immediately. We will be able to advise you on what steps you can take at home to help relieve your symptoms or we will be able to give you an emergency dental appointment in Esher where we can treat you on the same day you come in.

We may prescribe you with antibiotics if we assess you and you need it. Home remedies can help dull the pain, but you need to see a dentist to treat you properly.
