What to do in a dental emergency

Although you may be scared by your dental situation and you may be in a lot of pain, it is imperative that you seek advice to determine whether the situation is an imminent dental emergency or not.

Issues such as a lost filling, tooth ache or sensitivity are issues that are all able to be treated at a later date. Try to stay calm, stress will cause the body to react in a way that may worsen your symptoms. Here are a few things to try at home depending on your situation before you rush to book an emergency dental appointment.

General Toothache

If you are experiencing toothache, you should start treating it by rinsing your mouth out with warm water. If there is food stuck between teeth or gums causing irritation, use dental floss to remove it. 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 snacks to ensure any decay you may have will be kept at bay and does not get any worse.

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 emergency dentists in London will be able to help.

Severe Dental Pain 

If your pain begins to increase and you are not able to control it with the advice above, definitely call your dentist first. They should be able to diagnose the reason for your pain and will be able to arrange treatment such as antibiotics or stronger painkillers if necessary.

Under normal circumstances, when in pain, we would invite you to come in for diagnosis and treatment.

Severe toothache can often lead to swelling of the face. If this occurs you will need to seek emergency dental treatment.

You will be able to visit us for an emergency dental appointment in London after you call us and schedule an emergency appointment.

We will be able to numb the area that is causing you pain and then we will be able to discuss further long-term treatment.

Bleeding Gums

This is usually the result of gingivitis or gum disease, and your gums will continue to bleed until your oral hygiene improves.

Don’t underestimate the power of simply brushing your teeth. Brush your gums and your teeth twice a day.

Spending extra time on the areas that are bleeding and make sure to use floss or an interdental brush to clean in between your teeth.

Be sure to continue this routine daily. This is the only way to stop your gums bleeding for good.

There are a few home remedies other than proper cleaning that may help your situation.

  • 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 always ready, at your service, any time, any day (including Sundays).

Contact us now for emergency dental appointments in London and we will take care of you from cause to treatment.

Broken or chipped teeth

It is important to save any chips or fragments you can.

  • Use warm water to rinse both your mouth and the chips/fragments.
  • If your mouth bleeds, use a gauze to apply slight pressure on the bleeding area for 10 minutes, or until the bleeding stops.
  • To avoid or reduce swelling and alleviate pain, use a cold compress on the outside of the mouth near the affected area.

Book an emergency appointment with your dentist and be sure to explain your emergency clearly so they can asses your situation and know how urgently you need to be seen or if you will be able to stay at home and treat yourself for the time being.

You are welcome to visit our dental surgery in London. We will be able to assess and resolve to re-cement the tooth if possible.

Be sure to call us and make an emergency dental appointment before you come in.

Knocked-out tooth

Book an emergency dental appointment.

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 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, this 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 London, and we will try our best to see you and fix your situation as quickly and safely as we can.

Partially dislodged (extruded) tooth

Book an emergency dental appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, use a cold compress on the outside of the mouth over the affected area. Do not scrub the tooth. Use over-the-counter painkillers if the pain is excessive.

We advise to avoid touching the tooth excessively. However, if the tooth is still in its socket, if it is possible, attempt to place the tooth back in its socket.

Press onto the crown of the tooth until it sits level with the adjacent tooth. The less time the tooth is out of the socket, the better the chances are of saving it.

If you need urgent dental treatment, please do not wait to call us. Our goal is immediate dental treatment in London and urgent pain relief, do not suffer in silence.

Our help is only a call away. We will be able to treat you once we book you in for an emergency dental appointment in our London branches.

Something caught in teeth.

Use dental floss to try to remove the object yourself. Do not use anything sharp to try to remove the object, sharp objects can scratch the gums or even the surface of the tooth.

This remedy sounds very simple but rinse your mouth. Rinsing your mouth continuously is enough to dislodge food from your teeth.

Using a toothpick will also help you get in between your teeth to pick out anything stuck in between.

This situation can be resolved at home. In the event that the object cannot be removed at home, book an emergency dental appointment with your dentist.

Losing a filling

See your dentist as soon as possible.

We advise purchasing a temporary dental kit. We have many in stock on our click and collect online shop. Stocks are low in general supermarkets and hard to obtain online which is why we are fully stocked for you.

With this kit you will be able to temporarily fill the hole. Make sure to bit down whilst it’s still soft so the shape adapts to your own bite or it will feel quite awkward when you bite down.

In the meantime, you can use over-the-counter dental cement to plug the hole. If you cannot get hold of dental cement, sugarless gum can also be used as a temporary filling. Do not use sugar-filled gum as this will cause pain.

If you notice that a filling fell out while you were eating, stop chewing immediately and spit the filling out. It’s important that you do not swallow the the filling.

If your tooth filling fell out randomly, remove the filling from your mouth so that you do not accidentally swallow it.

Keep the filling if you can so your dentist can determine whether you can reuse it. You are also able to use dental wax to fill in the void of your tooth. Avoid chewing on the affected tooth while you wait to get an emergency dental appointment.

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

Give us a call and we will be able to offer you an appointment as soon as possible without a potential long wait to be seen.

Lost crown

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

DO NOT use glue as temporary cement, even though you may not be able to see a dentist straight away, this is not a DIY situation. It is dangerous and may ruin the structure of the remaining tooth underneath the crown.

DO NOT panic! Crowns may fall out, it happens! No matter why or how it fell out, it will be able to be fixed.

You may be sceptical about anyone being able to help you during this crisis while everyone is at home and not working. But this is an emergency situation and you should try to call a dentist and get as much help and advice as you can. There are facilities that will be able to help you if you are in dire need.

The same emergency dental kit that you can purchase from our online shop can be used to cement in a loose crown.

However, this is not ideal, try call us as soon as possible so we can book you in an emergency dental appointment so we can fix the crown properly.

In the meantime, especially if you are in pain, dip a cotton swab in clove oil and apply to the affected area. Clove oil can be purchased at a pharmacy or in most supermarkets.

Try to place the crown back on to the tooth. Use something such as dental cement, denture adhesive or toothpaste on the inside of the crown to help keep it in place temporarily. Never use glue!

Visiting our emergency dental surgery in London will ensure that your lost / broken crown is dealt with safely and quickly.

For any excessive damage to the tooth, 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. 

Broken wires in braces

Book an emergency appointment with your dentist or orthodontist.

If the wire is poking you into the cheek, gums or tongue, move the wire into a different position where it does not cause discomfort.

Use something like the rubber/eraser end of a pencil to move the wire. If you cannot reposition the wire for any reason, cover the sharp end with gauze, a small cotton ball or, if possible, orthodontic wax.

Loose bands or brackets in braces

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

It is common for orthodontic bands to become loose from time to time. While you have braces, orthodontic wax is your best friend!

Use orthodontic wax to reattach any loose braces, or create a cushion by placing the wax over the brace. If the bracket has become very loose, remove it carefully and save it.  If you can, bring it with you to your next appointment for reattachment.

Save any loose bands if possible.

An emergency dental appointment will help alleviate the pain as soon as it occurs to reduce the chances of cuts or ulcers forming as we are able to easily and safely cut any excess wire and re-cement any loose brackets.

Dental abscess

Book an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible. When you speak to a dentist they may prescribe an antibiotic to you.

Getting hold of the medications to correctly treat dental abscess are through prescription only.

Abscesses occur when the space between teeth and gums or around the tooth root becomes infected. If it is not treated soon, the infection can even spread to other parts of the body.

Unfortunately there is not way to treat dental abscess at home however, there are different remedies that you can do at home to reduce pain and sensitivity.

To ease the pain, you can use 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.

Our private emergency dentist London clinic will be able to treat and locate the origin of the issue by either draining the abscess , cleaning the area or prescribing antibiotics to you.

It is necessary that you book an emergency dental appointment in London as our dentist will also give you a treatment plan to help combat gum disease and provide preventative care for the future. 

Injuries to soft tissue

Book an emergency appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

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.

  • 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).
  • Apply pressure to the bleed using a piece of gauze or something similar. Apply for 15 minutes or until the bleeding stops.
  • Use a cold compress on the outside of the mouth over the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes.

Sensitive Teeth 

Many people go to see their dentist when they are concerned about the pain caused by sensitive teeth.

While are there are number of reasons why you may be experiencing tooth sensitivity, there are a few home remedies you can do to help alleviate the symptoms without having to go out into harms way to see a dentist.

  • You can try placing sensitive toothpaste over the sensitive areas and leaving it on overnight. The higher the fluoride content, the more it will be effective in desensitising.
  • Garlic: This is a traditional remedy for a range of health conditions, especially toothache. Try chewing on a clove of garlic, this will help fight that bacteria that is causing the sensitivity.
  • Salt water rinse: Using salt water as a mouthwash is another way to fight the bacteria in the mouth. Add half a teaspoon of salt to 8 ounces of warm water. Swish the salt water around the mouth several times before spitting it out.
  • Desensitising agents: There are specifically made toothpastes that are made for sensitive teeth and are easy to get a hold off.

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 London. We will be able to prescribe pain relief and highlight the cause of your pain.

Wisdom tooth pain

Whether your wisdom teeth are infected or not they can still cause you a lot of pain. If you need a removal scheduled or already have one, you might have to wait some time.

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.

Literally just bathe the tooth in salt water!

Reaching all the way to the back of your mouth with your toothbrush while brushing will help. Be sure to properly clean the entire tooth.

It doesn’t sound like much, but cleaning the tooth properly will help relieve your pain.

If your pain is very severe call your dentist, they will be able to prescribe you antibiotics if they feel like you need it. Do not suffer in silence.

Wisdom tooth pain is common, but being in pain is not normal! If home remedies are not working for you, you need to seek medical advice.

Interesting fact: Wisdom teeth pain spikes when you are stressed. This is very a very stressful time for all of us, you are not alone.
