  • Lost crown or temporary crown

Please contact the practice and you will be offered a toothache slot within 48 hours.

The following situations are non urgent but require attention within 7-10 days:

  • Lost filling, no pain
  • Bleeding gums on brushing
  • Sensitivity to hot/cold or sweet stimuli

Most dental pain is inflammatory in nature and can be relieved with the use of paracetamol in conjunction with a Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug (e.g  ibuprofen).

The use of a warm salt and water mouthwash, or Corsodyl mouthwash can help relieve the discomfort of a dental abscess swelling. Avoid extremes of temperature and biting on the affected area.
