Advice for common dental emergencies in Church Stretton
A knocked-out tooth
If you have sustained any other injuries whilst knocking out your tooth, please visit A&E. Where possible, try to keep hold of the knocked-out-tooth either in your mouth or in a cup of cold milk to save the tooth from drying out. Hold the knocked-out-tooth by the crown and never by the root. Time is of the essence when trying to save a knocked-out-tooth so call us or get someone else to call us as soon as possible so that we can book you quickly in to see the emergency dentist.
A constant nagging toothache can be agonizing. Call us to book an emergency dental appointment. Whilst you are waiting you can take paracetamol for the pain or Ibuprofen if you have any swelling. Be sure to follow the dosage on the packet. You can try rinsing your mouth in salty water to also alleviate the pain.
A dental abscess is a build-up of pus in the tooth, gum or jaw due to a bacterial infection. As well as being painful, a dental abscess can be potentially dangerous if the infection spreads to other parts of your body. You should call us as soon as you can for a dental emergency appointment. Whilst you are waiting, you can take paracetamol to deal with the pain and swilling your mouth with salty water can also help.
