If you knock out a tooth, it is important to seek emergency dental care immediately. Rinse your mouth with water, and try to find the tooth.
Hold the tooth by the crown (the part that is usually visible in the mouth) and avoid touching the root. If possible, gently place the tooth back into its socket and bite down on a clean piece of gauze to hold it in place.
If you cannot replant the tooth, place it in a container of milk or saliva and bring it with you to the dental office.
There are several home remedies that can help relieve toothache pain temporarily. Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater, apply a cold compress to the affected area, and take over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen.
However, it is important to seek professional dental care as soon as possible to address the underlying cause of the toothache.
A dental abscess is a serious dental emergency that requires you to contact your dentist as soon as possible.
If you have a dental abscess, you may experience severe pain, swelling, and fever.
In the meantime, you can rinse your mouth with warm saltwater and apply a cold compress to the affected area to help relieve pain and swelling.
"I had a broken tooth and they managed to fit me in within 24 hours. The reception team were empathetic and kind (unlike others I had phoned who curtly said no, particularly as I am a visitor to the region).
Welcoming and cool reception area at the practice. The dentist was very professional repairing the tooth - he could easily have “over-treated” but didn’t. Happy to recommend."
