First Aid Advice

We see all registered patients who require emergency treatment within 24 hours of you contacting us. Telephone the surgery first thing in the morning to ensure a same day appointment.  At weekends we participate in the Cityside Rota. Telephone the practice after 2pm on Fridays for details of the dentist on call.

Common reasons for attendance in an emergency are listed below. Please select the scenario which best fits your symptoms for advice.

What to do – If you are in pain.
If your face is swollen.
If an ‘adult’ tooth is knocked out.
If your mouth is bleeding persistently.
If you have broken your tooth.
If a crown or bridge has debonded.
If your child is complaining of toothache.
If you have broken your denture.

If you are in pain.

  • If you have toothache without facial swelling you can purchase painkillers from any chemist. Ask the advice of the pharmacist on what to take – make them aware of other medical conditions or allergies you may have as this will influence the choice of painkiller which they recommend.
  • Contact the dentist as soon as possible for treatment.

If your face is swollen.

You probably have an abcess or infection.

  • If the swelling is affecting your breathing go immediately to your local casualty department.
  • Contact the dentist as soon as possible for treatment, you will probably require an antibiotic.

If an ‘adult’ tooth is knocked out.

  1. Find the tooth – hold it by the crown, not the pointed root.
  2. Rinse the tooth in milk or water if dirty.
  3. Gently push the tooth back into its socket – make sure it is the right way round.
  4. Bite on a clean hanky to hold the tooth in place.
  5. If you can’t put the tooth back in, place it in a cup of milk – don’t let it dry out.

If your mouth is bleeding persistently.

Persistent heavy bleeding after a tooth extraction or injury requires urgent attention. If the surgery is closed go immediately to your hospital casualty department.

If you have broken your tooth.

  • Contact the surgery as soon as possible for an appointment. If you are in pain follow the pain relief advice above.
  • Do not chew food using the damaged tooth and avoid very hot or cold drinks as these will increase sensitivity.
  • If you have broken your tooth due to a fall or other trauma and are concerned about other injuries go immediately to the hospital casualty department.

If a crown or bridge has debonded.

  • Do not replace your crown using superglue (Yes, people do this).
  • If the crown or bridge is at the back of your mouth leave it out.
  • Keep in a safe place until you see the dentist.
  • If the crown is at the front of your mouth you can buy temporary crown cement in some chemists. This requires careful mixing and placement of the tooth in position. Denture fixative will also hold a crown in place for a short time but you should not eat if using this.
  • Contact the surgery as soon as possible.

If your child is complaining of toothache.

  • Your child’s usual pain relief medicine will relieve the symptoms in the short term. Avoid sugary drinks and snacks which will exacerbate the pain.
  • Contact the dentist as soon a possible for treatment.

If you have broken your denture.

  • Keep the pieces carefully together. A denture repair can usually be completed in one day; contact the surgery as soon as possible to enable us to complete the work quickly.
  • Always bring the denture yourself in case an impression is needed to assist the technician.
