What to do in a dental emergency
Dental emergencies need to be assessed and treated as quickly as possible so the earlier you can contact us, the earlier we can see you. For painful toothaches or swelling you can alleviate the pain with over-the-counter pain relief but we would still recommend you make an appointment to identify the cause of the pain.
When the dental emergency is due to a sporting accident or a nasty fall, the chances are there have been some damage to some or all of the front teeth. One may even have been knocked out. If this is the case and if you can find the missing tooth, pick it up avoiding the root end as much as possible. If it is dirty, wash it with a bit of saliva and then try to reinsert it back into the socket. If that is not possible, place the tooth in a clean container and cover with milk. If it is a child that has lost a baby tooth, do not try and reinsert it back into the socket as this could damage the adult teeth below. Just cover the tooth with milk (if found) and arrange an appointment with our emergency dentist in Bournemouth as soon as possible.
So don’t suffer through the pain of a dental emergency alone. The Queen’s Park Dental Team are here to support and our emergency dentist in Bournemouth is only a phone call away.
