If you are suffering from a painful toothache or something that requires urgent attention. Contact us immediately to organise an appointment as quickly and conveniently as possible for you. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol are recommended; do not exceed the maximum dose.
Swellings are caused by an infection. Contact us immediately to receive treatment or antibiotics.
Fractured teeth can usually be restored so there is no need to panic. If the tooth is painful, avoid hot or cold foods and fluids, as well as avoid eating or biting on that side – i.e. relieve the tooth from extremes of temperature and pressure. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol may help. Pain-free treatment is usually available by contacting us quickly.
Keep your crown safe so it can be re-cemented as soon as possible to avoid damage or the need for root canal treatment. Contact us immediately.
Broken dentures can usually be repaired relatively easily. Please resist the temptation to glue them together yourself as this often makes a repair very difficult. Contact us to organise the repair.
