Diagnose Your Dental Emergency

If you are suffering from severe tooth or gum pain that cannot be controlled by painkillers, then please call our hotline for advice and an emergency appointment.

Usually a swelling occurs because of an infection. There might be a slight infection in your teeth or gum tissue, or there might even be large abscess that has to be drained.

An infected swelling would usually feel quite tender and warm to the touch.

You should call immediately so you can be accurately diagnosed. After checking your teeth and gums thoroughly, an appropriate treatment and any necessary medications will be prescribed.

The treatment of a fractured tooth depends on the degree of its injury. But whatever the degree of damage might be, you should see a dentist to get the appropriate treatment.

No need to panic as it is usually easy to restore a damaged tooth. If it feels painful, try to avoid biting in that area or eating hot or cold foods.

Call our emergency hotline for an appointment.

Should you suffer a blow or fall which knocks a tooth out, you should recover it and remove any dirt or debris by gently rinsing it.

Avoid handling the root, thereby protecting the fibres on the root surface.

Your tooth has a better chance of survival if you can keep it in its socket until you can get emergency dental treatment. If this is not possible, put it in a cup of milk.

If the tooth is simply pushed inward or outward and is out of place, you should apply light finger pressure to reposition it to its normal alignment.

Do not force it into its socket.

Use a moist tissue or gauze to hold the tooth in its place.

Immediately schedule an appointment by calling our emergency hotline.

If a filling falls out, remove it from your mouth to avoid swallowing or choking on it.

It is not necessary to save it as it will be replaced.

If a filling is simply loose, avoid disturbing it and make an appointment to have it repaired or replaced.

If your crown becomes loose it is advisable to have it re-cemented as soon as possible.

Should your crown have fallen out, keep it as secure as possible as you may be able to have it re-cemented back in place.

Sometimes, a root canal treatment is recommended if it was not performed before the crown was constructed.

A broken crown constitutes a dental emergency if your symptoms are serious or potentially harmful for your oral health.

Call us immediately to prevent this from happening.

Usually, a broken denture is relatively easy to repair, however you should never attempt to repair it on your own as this could result in further damage.

Immediately schedule an appointment for repair.

Wisdom teeth usually appear between ages 17 and 25 and do not always cause problems.

Rinsing periodically with a teaspoonful of salt dissolved in warm water can reduce minor pain and swelling.

However, if the pain is more severe, the tooth may have to be removed. Call our emergency hotline for advice and / or an appointment.

To book an emergency appointment with us, it is not necessary for you to be an existing patient at our practice.
Didsbury Dental Practice has got you covered, at any time of day or night. Dental emergencies can be very painful, so we offer out-of-hours treatment because we know that dental problems don’t always stick to 9.00 am to 12.00 am.
Our emergency dental care service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including on Bank Holidays and Christmas Day.
Whether you have a broken tooth, gum inflammation, or a tooth infection, our expert team of dental professionals can provide treatment for any type of dental emergency.

These situations are not urgent, so you could potentially treat the problem by yourself, or book a routine check-up appointment with your dentist.
1. Minor toothache.
2. Small cavity.
3. Dislodged crowns and bridges.
4. Losing a filling.
5. Broken dentures, braces, or orthodontic appliances.
6. If you require surgical extractions (wisdom teeth) but are not in pain.
7. Sensitive or bleeding gums.
8. Mouth ulcers that have existed for less than 10 days.
9. If you want a second opinion.
10. If you want a cosmetic dentistry service, such as teeth whitening, teeth straightening, dental bonding or veneers.

As a parent, it can be distressing when your child experiences a tooth emergency. They may cry, become very upset, or constantly complain of pain and discomfort.

Follow these steps if your child has a tooth emergency:
1. Stay calm. Your child may be irritable and upset if they have hurt themselves or lost a tooth. Be patient and speak to them in soothing, reassuring tones. Let them know that they are being really brave and they will feel better soon, after a visit to the dentist.
2. Assess the situation and examine your child thoroughly. Look out for any facial swelling or bleeding. Take note of their symptoms, how they happened, and what makes them worse or better.
3. Remove any objects from the child’s mouth, such as food, a dummy or a bottle.
4. If your child is bleeding from the mouth, grab a clean gauze or paper towel and ask your child to bite down on it. You can also apply a cold compress to your child’s face.
5. Make an emergency dental appointment for your child as soon as possible. The dentist will carry out a thorough examination and provide the necessary advice and treatment.
6. If your child has lost a tooth, try to find the tooth and bring it with you to the emergency dental appointment. As you handle the tooth, do not touch the root, as this may contaminate it. Place the tooth in a container of milk to preserve it.
7. If the problem is more serious, call 111, or take your child to A&E as soon as you can.

Here are the symptoms to look out for:
1. Excruciating pain in the teeth or gums, which doesn’t go away with painkillers.
2. Tooth pain that spreads to your ear, jaw and neck, on the same side as the affected tooth or gum.
3. Tooth pain which worsens when chewing, drinking, or lying down.
4. Stiff neck.
5. Open, oozing sore on the gums.
6. Swelling and redness of your gums, jaw and face.
7. Sensitivity to very hot or very cold food and drinks.
8. High temperature.
9. Foul or bitter taste in the mouth or foul-smelling breath.
10. Increased heart rate.
11. General feeling of discomfort or illness.

Emergency dentists have the knowledge, equipment and experience as to how to resolve any type of tooth infection.
You are in safe hands when you make an emergency dentist appointment. The dentist will be able to examine you thoroughly, take action to fix the issue, prescribe any medications, and offer you the best advice and aftercare.
You wouldn’t receive this highly detailed examination and treatment from your GP or your local Accident & Emergency department, as these medical professionals do not have the specialist knowledge of dentistry that dentists have.
That is why it is imperative to turn to a dental professional in the event of a tooth infection.

The emergency dentist can:
1. Stop any excessive bleeding.
2. Treat any tooth infections.
3. Extract a tooth.
4. Minimise any long-term damage to the teeth, gum, or mouth.
5. Offer the appropriate care and advice if you have excessive tooth pain, facial swelling, gum disease or tooth decay.
6. Carry out incision and drainage or emergency root canal treatment if you have a dental abscess.
7. Carry out a hygiene treatment, which includes plaque removal, descaling, gum health checks, and removal of calculus above the gums.
8. Prescribe antibiotics to treat a dental abscess or tooth infection.
9. Offer an emergency filling.
10. Re-insert an avulsed tooth, knocked-out tooth, or dislodged crown.
11. Fix a chipped or broken tooth.
12. Refer you for further examinations or treatment, if the problem is more serious.

A tooth infection can occur due to:
1. A bacterial infection.
2. Tooth decay or an untreated dental cavity.
3. An injury to the mouth.
4. Previous dental work: for example, a teeth cleaning or root canal may cause bleeding and an opening, so bacteria can enter the body through this.
5. Through close contact with someone who has an oral bacterial infection (e.g. through sharing food, using their kitchen utensils, and even kissing.)

If you have a tooth emergency, this may be caused by an underlying infection. You may not even realise you have an infection until severe symptoms start to show.
So, can emergency dentist prescribe antibiotics?
Yes, an emergency dentist has the ability to prescribe antibiotics to patients, to fight a particular infection.
A patient might develop a tooth infection called a dental abscess. This is a build-up of pus inside the teeth, in the gums, or in the bone that holds the teeth in place, caused by a bacterial infection.
Infections can also develop in the gums, which can lead to periodontitis (a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue around teeth).
Antibiotics which are used to treat tooth and gum infections include AmoxicillinMetronidazole and Clarithromycin.

We know how uncomfortable and painful a tooth infection can be, so follow these tips below to help promote healing:
1. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush when cleaning your teeth.
2. Hold a cold compress to the side of your face to reduce swelling.
3. Avoid eating with the painful side of your mouth.
4. Eat softer foods that are easy to chew, such as scrambled eggs, smoothies, soup or yoghurt.
5. Manage your pain with over-the-counter medication and tooth pain gel, but never more than the recommended dosage. (Please note that children under 16 should not take aspirin).
6. Rinse your mouth with salt water, to ease tooth inflammation. (Children should never do this, however.)
7. Using a cotton bud, apply diluted clove oil to the affected area, as clove possesses anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
8. It may not sound appealing, but chewing on an onion may bring you relief. Onions are a natural antiseptic and can effectively eliminate germs in the mouth.
9. Consult a dentist if your pain or symptoms worsen.
