A dental disaster can be extremely upsetting and have a hugely negative impact on your life. Your teeth are such a noticeable part of your face, that if something goes wrong, you’ll want the problem addressed as quickly and painlessly as possible.

That’s why at Medway Smile Clinic we offer emergency dentist appointments usually on the same day and within hours wherever possible. For your convenience, we are also open on Saturday mornings and offer emergency evening appointments on Thursdays.

Dental Emergency Service

It’s hard to know what qualifies as a dental emergency but if something’s gone wrong and you’re suffering from dental pain, it’s better to give us a call. Any of the following might mean you need a speedy solution:

  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Toothache
  • Severe dental pain
  • Loose teeth
  • Broken tooth
  • Lost crown
  • Broken denture
  • Wisdom teeth pain
  • Swelling in the face or mouth
  • Bulges or swelling on your gums

Dental Emergencies can include a cracked, broken, or completely knocked out tooth, a lost filling, damaged dental restorations, or an abscess, which can form within a tooth or on the gum.

So, if you feel there’s something wrong, call us without delay. You might need immediate dental treatment from one of our skilled dentists to prevent the problem from worsening or stop it from causing permanent damage.

Emergency Dentist Tips

You shouldn’t have to wait too long to see us but if you do have a mouth-related mishap you might want to follow these handy emergency tips to help relieve pain and prevent further damage:

  • Knocked out tooth

Make sure you hold a knocked-out tooth by the crown and then rinse with warm water. Either pop it back in its original place or keep it in milk or salt water until we can attempt to replace it.

  • Chipped tooth

Rinse your mouth with warm water, reduce swelling with a cold compress and stem any bleeding by applying a piece of gauze.

  • Filling out

Stick a piece of sugar-free chewing gum where the lost filling used to be so the cavity is protected.

  • Abscess

If you suspect you are suffering from an abscess, rinse your mouth with warm, salty water and take over-the-counter pain killers. If you develop a high temperature, severe pain, or difficulty breathing, you may have to go to A&E.

  • Detached crown

A detached crown can be put temporarily back in place with some dental cement or toothpaste until you can be seen by a dentist.
