What to do in a Dental Emergency

What should I do in a dental emergency?

If you think you are suffering from a dental emergency, please call our dental clinic in Wandsworth immediately. We will advise you on the best course of action and book you an emergency appointment if necessary.

It is important that if you are in pain or anything happens to your oral health that is worryingly abnormal you seek out medical care as soon as possible. In many instances, if you leave whatever you are feeling untreated it will tend to get worse.

Our emergency dental services from our clinic in Wandsworth can alleviate the symptoms of various dental related issues that may be causing you a lot of pain and discomfort. Our Wandsworth dentists are based in Old York Road and are accepting emergency dental appointments today.

What to do: Toothache

Toothache is the most common emergency and can be very painful, and chances are, it’s getting in the way of your day to day tasks as well as your sleep. Normally toothache is described as a sharp pain that can start throbbing and sometimes even be felt along one side of the face, up to the back of your head.

Home remedies for toothache

You can begin to treat toothache at home by rinsing your mouth out warm water. Flossing can also help reduce your toothache as your toothache could have originated from food that is stuck in between your teeth or gums causing your irritation.

You can also use a cold compress on the outside of your mouth if you experience any swelling.

You can take regular painkillers as they will help with the pain. Do not use any types of painkillers, such as aspirin, on the gum itself as this can burn the tissue. Usually taking oral painkillers and maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste will stop the pain from getting any worse.

Reduce sugary foods and drinks to ensure any decay you may have can be controlled and will not get any worse.

When should I see a dentist about my toothache?

If home remedies aren’t working and your toothache lasts for more than 2 days you should call your dentist for an emergency dental appointment in Wandsworth. If your toothache is severe, do not wait for it to get worse, you should call your dentist immediately and book an emergency appointment.

If your toothache is accompanied by a fever, earache or pain when chewing or opening your mouth, you need to book an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible. During this appointment, your dentist will be able to locate where the pain is located and examine how severe it is. Treatment for your toothache will be dependent on the cause.

How can toothaches be prevented?

Most toothaches are the result of tooth decay therefore, following and keeping up with your oral hygiene routine can prevent toothache. Brush twice for two minutes a day using toothpaste containing fluoride.

Call your dentist for advice on what to do and book an emergency dental appointment with your dentist as soon as they become available. No matter what your case, our dentists in Wandsworth will be able to diagnose you immediately.

Severe pain 

Severe toothache can often lead to swelling of the face. If this occurs you will need to seek emergency dental treatment as soon as this occurs. You will be able to visit our dental practice in Wandsworth after you call us and schedule an emergency appointment. We will be able to numb the area that is causing you pain and discuss treatment going forward to get rid of the pain completely.

What to do: Bleeding gums

Consistent bleeding gums are a sure sign that you should call your dentist and book and emergency appointment to find the cause and treat your bleeding gums as soon as possible in order to prevent further damage to your oral health.

Usually bleeding gums are a sign on gum disease. This is why you need to seek medical advice as soon as possible.

In some cases, simply adhering to a good oral health routine will allow your gums to heal by themselves and stop the bleeding. However, if your case has worsened by itself, you will need treatment by a medical professional. Your dentist will be able to examine how bad the damage is when you come in for an emergency dental appointment.

In the meantime, try a salt water rinse at home to help with the pain and fight any lingering bacteria.

  • Salt water rinse: This remedy treats many dental problems as salt has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that help reduce swelling and combat infections that cause bleeding gums.

Our dentists are all qualified and highly experienced. We provide emergency dental to both new and existing patients. If you require an urgent dental appointment in Wandsworth, please contact immediately.

What to do: Broken or chipped teeth

A broken tooth usually happens because of underlying decay of the tooth. A broken tooth can become a dental emergency if it is left untreated and the sharp edges cut the tongue or gums on the cheeks.

Even if you do not feel any pain straight away, it is best to book an emergency dental appointment with us as soon as possible. At our dental clinic in Wandsworth we will be able to assess the damage of the tooth and advise the treatment needed. We ensure that you will leave our clinic with treatment on the same day and a restored smile on each of our patients’ faces.

It is important to save any chips or fragments you can. It will make it easier to repair your tooth once you come in for your emergency appointment. In order to reduce any pain or swelling, using a cold compress on the affected area on your cheek, this should help subside the pain temporarily.

Call us and book an emergency dental appointment in our clinic in Wandsworth. We will be able to discuss the various options that will be available to you and the treatment you decide. Be sure to call us and make an appointment before you come in as we do not accept walk-ins.

What to do: Knocked-out tooth

Treating a knocked-out tooth is very time sensitive so do not wait, book an emergency dental appointment as soon as this occurs so that we can fix it without any complications.

Do not rinse the tooth with water, touch the tooth with clean hands and 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.

Unfortunately the longer your tooth is out of its socket, the harder it is to treat it, the best chance of having a tooth replaced is to see your dentist within 1 hour. During your emergency dental appointment, a thorough examination will be needed to examine the damage. Call as soon as possible and we will get you an emergency appointment booked in for you at your nearest dental clinic in or around Wandsworth town. We will try our best to see you and fix your situation as quickly and safely as we can.

What to do: Partially dislodged (extruded) tooth

If you have a dislodged tooth, treat it the same as if you had a tooth that is knocked out. When a tooth has been partially dislodged or completely knocked out, it is considered a dental emergency and needs immediate treatment by a dentist. Contact us immediately and schedule an emergency appointment.

If the tooth is still in its socket, attempt to place the tooth in its correct position. We do not recommend touching the tooth too much or playing around with it with your tongue or fingers.

If you are not able to place the tooth back in its socket, drop the tooth in a cup of milk and head to your emergency appointment in our clinic in Wandsworth as soon as possible. This kind of dental emergency is time sensitive, so the quicker you are able to get to us, the better. Our help is only a call away. We will be able to treat you as soon as we book you in for an appointment in our dental clinic.

What to do: Losing a filling

While a lost filling is not generally considered an emergency that needs urgent dental treatment, it may cause you pain that could impact your daily life. See your dentist as soon as possible so that this does not occur.

We will be able to relieve your pain and protect the tooth in question as well. Leaving the tooth untreated leaves it open to get severely damaged.

For a quick fix, before you get an emergency appointment, you can purchase dental cement from our online shop to plug the hotel in the tooth temporarily sealing the tooth from further damage. Sugarless gum can also be used as a temporary filling, while you are awaiting to come into our clinic. Do not use sugar-filled gum as this will cause you more pain and will cause further damage to your teeth.

We understand that you will want to receive dental treatment as soon as possible. At The Neem tree, in our Wandsworth clinic, we will be able to arrange emergency dental treatment and resolve your problem on the same day.

What to do: Lost crown

You do not need to worry, a lost or dislodged crown may just need tightening or re-cementing. Once you make an emergency dental appointment, be sure to bring the lost crown with you.

While we are on lockdown you might be drawn to fix this issue yourself. You may actually be able to temporarily fix the situation at home. You can buy an emergency dental kit from our website that contains the right tools for you to fix your situation temporarily.

We all are living in stressful times and leaving the house for a dentist appointment may not be ideal for you so, attempting to fix your lost crown on your own may appeal to you. Using the emergency dental kit found on your website will help you do this by yourself. Try to place the crown on the tooth and use dental cement on the inside of the crown to help keep it in place temporarily.

However, if you do not have this kit you CANNOT cement the crown back with glue or any other sticky substance that is NOT meant for your mouth. You will cause your oral health more harm.

Although this is a viable option, it is not ideal. The best option is to book an emergency appointment with us in Wandsworth so we are able to fix your lost crown quickly, safely and correctly.

We understand the circumstances everyone is in right now, but  a lost crown is a dental emergency and should be attended to as soon as possible. Call us so we can advise you on the correct way to proceed at home or we can book in in for an emergency dental appointment in Wandsworth town and treat you on the same day as quickly and safely as possible.

Visiting our emergency dental surgery in Wandsworth town will ensure that our dental team will provide you with all the relevant options to resolve your situation with the utmost care in a time effective way. We will ensure that you will leave our clinic after your appointment with your smile restored.

What to do: Broken wires in braces

If the wires of your braces are broken or your brackets are loose, you need orthodontic treatment as broken wires can cause damage to your gums and tongue. An emergency orthodontic visit to our clinic in Wandsworth will resolve any sharp wires that can cut your gums.

If the wire is poking you into the cheek, gums or tongue, for the time being try to move the wire into a different position so that it does not cause you any discomfort. While you have braces it is always a good idea to have orthodontic wax on hand. It will come in handy when you least expect it. If you are not able to reposition the wire, cover the sharp end with gauze, a small cotton ball or, if possible, orthodontic wax.

Keep in mind, repositioning the wire is only a temporary solution and is not highly recommended as you could damage your braces in the process. Reposition the wire for the time being if the pain is excruciating before you are able to book an emergency orthodontic appointment with our Wandsworth dentists.

What to do: Loose bands or brackets in braces

If you are having any trouble with your braces that is causing you pain or results in damage to your braces, book an emergency appointment with your dentist or orthodontist as soon as possible.

It is  very common for bands and brackets to become loose from time to time. Use orthodontic wax to reattach any loose brackets, or create a cushion by placing the wax over the brace. Try to call us and book an emergency appointment before you have to take matters into your own hands. That way we will be able to fix the issues without you having to fix the issue yourself.

Save any loose bands or brackets if possible. An emergency dental appointment will help alleviate the pain immediately and fix the problem as soon as it occurs to reduce the chances of cuts or ulcers forming.

Please do not hesitate to call us and book emergency dental treatment in Wandsworth Town.

What to do: Sensitive teeth

Sensitive teeth can be very painful. If you have sensitive teeth, it is possible that some of your tooth enamel has worn away. If your sensitivity is causing you immense pain, book an emergency dental appointment in our Wandsworth clinic by calling or booking online.

There are a number of reasons as to why you may be experiencing tooth sensitivity. If you are nervous about coming into the clinic, try using desensitising agents such as toothpastes that are specifically made for people who have sensitive teeth. You do not have to purchase these from a dentist, many drugstores and local supermarkets sell them.

If the pain from sensitive teeth is continuous and home remedies are not helping your situation, it is necessary to have your teeth assessed by a dentist. The Neem Tree Wandsworth is open for emergency appointments. We will be able to provide treatment, prescribe pain relief and highlight the cause of your pain.

What to do: Dental abscess

Dental abscess can often occur due to an infection not being treated. Book an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible. Dental abscess can often be very painful, but this is not always the case. Either way, if you allow your dental abscess to continue without treatment you enhance the risk of gum disease.

When you speak to a dentist they may recommend that you should take antibiotics to treat the infection or you may need to come into the clinic for an emergency appointment. Antibiotics can only be taken if they are prescribed to you by your dentist.

Symptoms of dental abscess can be an intense throbbing pain in the affected area, tooth sensitivity, a foul odour or a salty taste in the mouth. This usually indicates the abscess draining pus. If it is not treated soon, the infection can spread to other parts of the body and make you very sick.

Unfortunately there is no way to treat dental abscess at home, you will need to book an emergency dental appointment. There are however, different remedies that you can do at home to reduce pain and sensitivity while you get an appointment.

A very helpful way to ease the pain, is to take over the counter painkillers or rinse your mouth out with a salt water mixture. Use 1/2 a teaspoon of salt in about 250 ml or 8 ounces of water and rinse several times a day. These remedies only relieve the symptoms temporarily, it will not treat you.

The Neem Tree Wandsworth is able to provide treatment if you are suffering from dental abscess. It is necessary that you book an emergency dental appointment with our dentists in Wandsworth. If you leave your dental abscess untreated, you leave yourself at risk to many other diseases.

What to do: Injuries to soft tissue

Issues with your gums are the most common soft tissue problem. Injuries to soft tissue can affect your cheeks, gums and tongue if left untreated. Book an emergency appointment with your dentist as soon as possible if this occurs.

Some injuries to soft tissues may indicate possible serious issues with your teeth or other more serious underlying issues, potentially oral cancers.

It is best to book an emergency dental appointment so your dentist can determine how serious your case is and diagnose your treatment accordingly.

If you have injured the soft tissue in your mouth (inside of the cheek, gums, tongue, lips etc), the most important thing is to stop the bleeding.

  • A salt water rinse is a great way to fight any bacteria in the mouth that is causing you pain. Use a mild salt water mixture to rinse out your mouth. (1/2 a teaspoon of salt in about 250 ml or 8 ounces of water).
  • It is also a good idea to apply pressure to the area that is bleeding, using a piece of gauze or something similar. Apply for a minimum of 15 minutes or until the bleeding stops.
  • Using a cold compress will also reduce any swelling that may occur. Place a cold compress on the outside of the mouth over the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes.

What to do: Wisdom tooth pain

Wisdom tooth pain spikes when you least expect it. Your pain can be triggered by many different things, for example pain can be caused by infections or even, stress. When you are brushing your teeth make sure that you reach all the way to the back so ensure you are brushing your wisdom teeth properly, this should help protect them from infection.

Salt water will help you a lot when you are trying to relieve pain from home. A warm salt water rinse will be able to help keep an infection at bay.

Although wisdom tooth pain is common, continuous pain is not normal. If you are in pain our dentists will be able to assess your teeth and look into the root of your pain. We accept emergency dental appointments in our Wandsworth Town practice so call us immediately.
