I’m in Pain

We know how distressing and often painful a dental emergency can be, so we will always try to see you as soon as possible.

It is essential not to ignore a dental emergency as it can lead to permanent damage or require more complicated treatment if not swiftly addressed. We will only arrange an emergency appointment if it is necessary to help relieve pain or provide essential treatment.

These tips can help you in the meantime:

Take painkillers regularly to help relieve the pain. Often paracetamol or ibuprofen are helpful, but please remember to follow the instructions on the packet.

Insert a temporary shop-bought dental filling material into the cavity.

You can use over-the-counter dental cement if the crown is still intact.

Keep all the pieces if your crown is broken, and cover the cavity like a lost filling.

Keep any small pieces and rinse your mouth with warm water. A cold compress will help reduce swelling, and you can apply some gauze to stop bleeding.

We will be much more likely to save the tooth if you see us quickly, so call us as soon as possible.

Hold the tooth carefully by the crown (the part that would typically be visible in your mouth) and rinse gently with water, careful not to scrub or remove any little bits of tissue.
Try to put the tooth back in position, ensuring it is the right way around. If this is impossible, place it in some milk (or water containing a pinch of salt).

Rinse your mouth with warm, salty water and apply a cold compress to ease swelling. If you experience intense pain, swelling, and flu-like symptoms, visit your nearest A&E department.

I had Invisalign, whitening and Icon done at Ashford Oradent. Akhil and Marion were fantastic at keeping me informed and patiently answering all my questions. The end result was exactly what was expected and I have had compliments on my smile. Thankyou!

Like many the dentist isn’t one of my favourite places, but I’ve been going to Oradent for many years. I stared off with white knuckle and dreading every second. The dentist I see Hamid is so reassuring and gentle all my fears have gone. He’s looked after me so well that I now go in as happy a Larry! I definitely recommend this practice

Very happy with the amazing service at this Dentist. The receptionists, Ellie, Kate, Julie and Sarah and my Dentist Anisha, make the whole experience so pleasant and easy. I called yesterday with a broken tooth and they made me an appointment for first thing this morning, and tried to get me one for yesterday, until I said it wasn't necessary. Today I arrived on time, didn't have to wait and the tooth was sorted out immediately by Anisha, who was so reassuring and gentle! Highly recommended!
