EMERGENCY DENTAL ADVICE

                                                    

 

There are few things that can spoil your day more than severe toothache/pain.

 

We provide emergency dental care and act as an emergency dentist for Walsall, Cannock and the surrounding areas.

We operate our own flexible dental service and always aim to offer same day appointments including on weekends.

 

Here are a few tips:

  1. For toothache, cold or warm compresses can help, however If you have a swelling, DO NOT put anything warm on the area-this can actually increase the swelling resulting in a “pointing abscess”. A cold pack may be placed on the area if this brings comfort.

 

  1. Take suitable pain-relief. Anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen can be helpful and can help manage the pain. Ibuprofen should be avoided if you have asthma or any gastric/stomach problems. Paracetamol can also help, however when taking any over the counter medication, always read the label/information sheet and speak to a pharmacist for advice if needed.

 

  1. Call your dentist as soon as possible so that the problem can be dealt with; even if the pain goes away, it is best to get dental advice as the problem may recur or get worse. At Cheslyn Hay Dental Practice, we always aim to offer same day appointments for dental emergencies for registered and non-registered patients.

 

  1. Clove oil can also help when applied topically/directly over the affected tooth and is available over the counter at most pharmacies.

 

  1. Never place tablets such as aspirin at the site of the toothache as the tablet can actually cause a “burn” to the gum where it has been placed.

 

If you require emergency dental treatment, contact us as soon as possible and we will aim to resolve your dental problem swiftly and make you more comfortable.

You can contact us on 01922 414372 for an appointment, or if you need emergency dental treatment or advice outside of our normal working hours, please call our helpline on 01922 716609.
