What is the advice for common dental emergencies in Ruislip?

Some of the more common dental emergencies that we see in patients from Ruislip, Ickenham, Harrow, Pinner, Northwood, Uxbridge and throughout London include:

A persistent toothache

A constant nagging toothache can be excruciating. Call us to see the emergency dentist and in the meantime, take paracetamol to manage the pain. You can also try swilling your mouth with salty water to alleviate pain.

A knocked-out tooth

This is a frightening experience. If you have saved the knocked-out tooth, be sure to only handle it by the crown and not by the roots. Don’t wash or overhandle the tooth.

Save the knocked-out tooth either in your mouth or in a cup of cold milk to stop it drying out and bring it with you to see the emergency dentist in Ruislip.

Timing is critical in being able to save a knocked-out tooth, so make sure you or a friend or relative call us as soon as you are physically able to do so.

Dental abscess

A dental abscess is an infection that can cause pus in your tooth, gum or jaw. You may have pain, swelling or inflammation in your mouth. Contact us at the dental practice in Ruislip for an emergency dental appointment. Take paracetamol to manage the pain and drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Emergencies

I have something stuck between my teeth that is causing me pain. How can I remove it?

This depends on what the object is. If it is food for example, you could try gently removing it with dental floss. Do not use anything sharp to remove it as you could cause more damage to your teeth and gums. If dental floss cannot remove it, then call and book an appointment with the emergency dentist.

Can I go to hospital for a dental emergency?

We recommend only going to a hospital if you have suffered serious injuries to your mouth, face or teeth, for example during a fall or accident.

Otherwise, please call and book to see the emergency dentist in Ruislip as soon as possible.

Why does my toothache feel worse at night?

You may find that your toothache is worse at night because you are lying down. The blood rushes to your head which causes more sensitivity to your mouth. Take paracetamol and try to keep your head more elevated at night. Avoid eating extremely hot or cold foods before going to bed.
