At our central location in Battersea, and with our close proximity to Clapham Junction we see our fare share of emergency dental patients. For every patient that we see we aim to produce a solution. We have put together a guide to what you need to do if you do have one of the most common dental emergencies. Any toothache is miserable but the following are causes that might be responsible for the pain and we have added some possible steps you can take until you get to us.
In the case of a tooth being knocked out or chipped you should always seek urgent dental treatment to avoid any further damage being done to your other teeth. Apply gauze if there is any continuous bleeding until you can get to the dentist. If your tooth has been completely knocked out of your mouth, pick it up by the crown and rinse it if it is dirty. Store the tooth in saliva orin a container of milk and take it with you to the dentist. A dentist may be able to save a tooth, if it can be preserved and if you can get to the dentist within an hour of the tooth being knocked out or dislodged.
While you wait for an appointment you can rinse your mouth well with warm salt water and use some dental floss to remove any food lodged between the teeth. If there is swelling then hold a cold compress to your cheek over the area. Never put a painkiller like aspirin onto the gum as it might burn the soft tissue.
Try first to dislodge the object with dental floss and if you cannot, then see your dentist. Never use anything sharp to attempt to dislodge the object.
If you lose a crown then you should make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible taking the crown with you. You may be able to reattach the crown temporarily using some over the counter dental cement you can purchase from a chemist. Never use any other type of glue, especially not super glue.
If a wire breaks and causes pain by sticking into your mouth cover the sharp end with dental wax until you can get to the dentist for a repair.
An abscess is caused by infection that occurs at the root of a tooth or in the space between the gums and the teeth. An abscess is a serious condition that has the potential to damage tissue as well as other teeth. The infection can even spread throughout the body if it is not treated.
Also our convenient location in Battersea and close proximity to Clapham Junction makes Glow Dental an ideal choice for any general and cosmetic treatments.
