Emergency Dental

Accidents are inevitable, and when it comes to dental emergencies, they can happen to anyone. We understand the urgency and stress that accompanies such situations, which is why we're committed to being your reliable partner during times of need.

Whether it's a toothache, facial swelling, lost or broken fillings, or more serious trauma like fractured or knocked-out teeth, we're here to provide immediate assistance and relief. Don't wait to address your dental emergency—reach out to our dedicated team at Natural Dentistry without delay. Your dental health is our priority.

Types of Dental Emergencies

Fractured, Chipped or Broken Teeth: Regardless of how damaged the tooth is, you should seek medical advice immediately.  Reposition the tooth using very light finger pressure and hold in place with a moist tissue or gauze. Try to find any broken or chipped away pieces and rinse them with milk to remove any dirt. If you cannot find the piece of tooth, contact your dentist immediately. Depending on how damaged the tooth is our team may be able to repair it. 

Toothache: If you are suffering from a toothache, take some painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen and seek care as soon as possible. Severe dental pain is often associated with an abscessed tooth which may need antibiotics as well. If you experience any pain in your teeth or gums, it's important to contact the Natural Dentistry team as soon as possible.

Lost Filling: A lost filling can leave sharp edges and lead to cuts on the tongue and cheeks if left untreated. If there is no pain, use blue-tac or wax to smooth the edge over until you can visit your local dentist. If you are experiencing pain, get in touch with our team immediately.

Missing Teeth: One of the most common dental injuries is a lost tooth. If a tooth is knocked out it's important to act quickly. Rinse the tooth with milk to wash off any dirt. To increase its survival time, either immerse the tooth in milk or place it back in your mouth. If your child has lost a baby tooth, do not place it back in the socket. Doing so can damage the new permanent tooth underneath.

Facial Swelling: If you are experiencing swelling around your jaw-line or cheeks, you should seek medical advice immediately. Either contact Natural Dentistry or visit the emergency department to get to the root of the swelling as soon as possible.

Soft Tissue Injuries: This includes cuts, tears, and punctures to the tongue, cheeks or lips. Try to clean the wound straight away and visit your local dentist or emergency department as soon as possible. If bleeding persists, place pressure on the wound using gauze. 

 

Dental emergencies are common. At Natural Dentistry we ensure we have time set away each day or any unexpected dental emergency. If you are experiencing any discomfort or pain in your mouth, teeth or gums please get in touch with our team to book an appointment.
