Brunel Dental Practice

What to Do in a Dental Emergency

There are certain actions you should take in a dental emergency:

– If teeth have been knocked out, try to find them, rinse in water, put in a glass of milk, then get to the dentist as soon as possible.

– If you lose or break a filling you can get a temporary filling and ibuprofen for any pain from the chemist until you can visit the dentist.

– If you get something stuck between your teeth you can try flossing to remove it — but if it’s still stuck, it’s best to get your dentist to remove it soon.

– Head to A&E with any difficulty breathing or sudden facial swelling.

“You can wait on a cracked or chipped tooth as long as it isn’t causing pain.”
