If you’re looking for an emergency dentist Newbury, you’ve come to the right place. We understand that being in pain can put your life on hold so if you need to see a dentist immediately, we will do everything we can to see you on the same day.
If you need care outside our normal working hours, the advice below may help or alternatively, call 01635-45876 and follow the advice on the answer phone.
What should I do in an event of a dental emergency?
Please call the practice immediately so that we can arrange to see you as quickly and conveniently as possible.
What can I do to cure toothache?
If you’re suffering from toothache, something is wrong and requires attention so please contact us immediately. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol are recommended but be careful not to exceed the maximum dose.
What should I do if I have a swelling?
Swellings are caused by an infection. Please contact us immediately to receive treatment or antibiotics.
What should I do if I have fractured my tooth?
Fractured teeth can usually be restored so there’s no need to panic. If the tooth is painful, avoid hot or cold foods and eating or biting on that side. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol may help. Pain free treatment is usually available by contacting us early.
What if I have lost a crown?
Keep your crown safe so that it can be re-cemented as soon as possible to avoid further damage and the need for root canal treatment. The sooner you have this done, the easier and more pain-free treatment will be.
What if I have knocked a tooth out?
- The tooth will need to be re-implanted into its socket immediately so please make an appointment with us as soon as you can.
- Try not to handle the tooth root too much to protect the fibres around the root surface.
- If possible, place the tooth back into the socket and splint in place with silver paper.
- DO NOT place the tooth in water.
- DO place tooth in cold milk or on one side of your mouth between your teeth and cheeks.
- Contact us immediately.
What if I have broken my denture?
Most dentures can be repaired relatively easily. Please resist the temptation to glue them together yourself as this often makes a repair very difficult. Contact us to organise the repair and we will do this as quickly as we can.
