What to do when you have a dental emergency?

In some cases, what you do during the emergency can help us in the surgery. Here are some tips on what you can do during the most common dental emergency cases.

Lost filling

You’ll need to protect the exposed sensitive part of the tooth. Temporary fillings are available which you can use or you can use sugar-free gum and place this over the site before you see your Smilepod dentist.

Lost crown

If you still have the crown, you can use dental cement (which you can buy at a pharmacy) or sugar-free gum to stick it in place. Do not use superglue.

If your crown is broken, keep the piece you can find and make sure the exposed cavity is covered. 

Chipped tooth

Keep any pieces of your tooth and rinse your mouth with warm, salty water. If you have any swelling, a cold compress can help relieve the pressure. Gauze can stop any bleeding.

Knocked out tooth

Keep the tooth. We may be able to save it. Hold it carefully by the crown, take care not to touch the roots, and rinse it with water. Don’t scrub or remove any tissue. Put the tooth back into position or keep it in your mouth ( not advisable with children) – if you can’t, you can place it in some milk or salty water.

Lost baby tooth

If the tooth has damaged the gum or has broken, leaving parts of the tooth still in the gum, you should contact us. Child-friendly painkillers can sort out any discomfort.

Avoid re-implanting milk teeth as this could damage the new adult tooth.

An abscess

Please contact us first so we can arrange an appointment. You can help ease the pain by rinsing with warm salty water and apply a cold compress to ease any swelling. If you experience intense pain and have a high temperature, you should go to your nearest A&E department.
