I can't recommend Dental fx highly enough. In fact I've become evangelical about them.

Emergency advice before you have seen a dentist

Toothache

Over-the-counter painkillers should help relieve toothache. For best effects remember to take painkillers at regular intervals- even if the pain seems to be improving. It is possible to alternate paracetamol and ibuprofen if necessary (please read instruction and advice labels on any medication before you take them)

Oil of cloves can also be bought from your local chemist and can help toothache when applied at the neck of the tooth or applied into a cavity with a cotton bud.

LOSS OF A FILLING

If you lose a filling and you cannot immediately access your dentist, your local chemist may stock temporary filling paste – dry the cavity carefully with a cotton bud and just press in a very small amount. Bite you teeth together afterwards and grind from side to side to make sure that it doesn't get in the way of your bite

Loss of a crown

If your crown is in one piece it can be re-attached with denture fixative or a VERY small amount of temporary filling paste, both of which can be purchased from your local chemist. NEVER use household glues or superglue to re-attach a filling or crown.

Loss of an adult tooth

The loss of an adult tooth is also common and can arise as a result of many things including sports, accidents, fights and falls. It is possible to replace an adult tooth- provided certain steps are followed. If you have had a tooth knocked out or it has been broken then contact us immediately. The chances of saving it are much higher with early treatment.

  • If possible, re-insert the tooth into the gum and bite down gently on a clean cloth (tea cloth, gauze, flannel etc) to hold it in place and reduce the bleeding.
  • Do not touch any of the roots attached to the tooth or attempt to clean it in any way. Always handle the tooth by the crown (the larger, chewing surface)
  • If the tooth can't be replaced then it should be stored in a small pot. Ensure that it is covered in milk or saliva to keep it moist. You can also carry it in your mouth- between the gum and cheek or under your tongue. Sterile solutions are also available from pharmacies. DO NOT USE TAP WATER
  • Bring the tooth with you when you visit us.
  • Relieve any swelling or pain with a cold compress.

Broken or chipped tooth for an adult

It is common for teeth that are filled to chip or break. Sometimes the tooth will then feel more sensitive and rough. If there is a cavity you can apply a small amount temporary filling paste available from your local chemist to protect the area to protect the tooth until your appointment.
