How should I handle a Dental Emergency?
If you think you need emergency dental treatment remain calm and contact Beechwood Dental in Bournemouth/Boscombe as soon as you can. Any trauma to the mouth or teeth may be reduced if you take immediate action.
If you have a toothache, carefully clean the painful area using a soft-headed toothbrush and floss. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water may also help. If you notice any facial swelling, apply a cold compress to the affected area and take Ibuprofen for pain relief then contact our dental team as soon as possible.
If your tooth/teeth have been pushed in or outwards, try to put it back into position using the tip of your finger very gently and hold it in place with a moist tissue (Do not force it into its socket). Contact Beechwood Dental team as soon as possible.
Chipped or fractured teeth
Rinse your mouth with warm water and keep it clean then contact our dental team. Treatment will depend on the severity of the damage and may be as simple as smoothing out the chipped area to bonding with white, tooth- coloured composite or crowning the tooth. If the tooth’s nerve has been damaged, then it may be necessary to do a Root Canal Treatment.
Knocked out tooth
If you completely have a tooth knocked out, then contact our team immediately as getting care within an hour of this happening is vital if re-implanting the tooth, it is going to be successful.
- Keep/find the knocked-out tooth.
- Rinse it carefully with warm water
- Either wrap it in a clean cloth or gauze soaked in milk or place it between your cheek and gums. Keeping the tooth moist may increase the chance of re-implantation being successful.
