Tips and advice

If you have experienced an accident or dental trauma, please follow the tips below while you are waiting to be seen.

Broken tooth/teeth

Clean the affected area to prevent infection and cover with a sterile gauze (not a bandage). If you can find the fragment of tooth, preserve it in some milk and contact us immediately.

Loose/loosened teeth

If your tooth has become loose due to a direct hit, apply an ice pack to the area and gently attempt to push the tooth back into its socket. The sooner the tooth is stabilised, the more chance it has of reattaching and healing.

Knocked out tooth

If you can find the knocked out tooth, pick it up by the crown (the part you would normally see in the mouth) and do not touch the root. Remove any pieces of visible debris from the tooth, but try not to touch the root during this process. Carefully rinse the tooth under cool water to clean it. Very gently attempt to put the tooth back into the socket root first, cover it with a pad of gauze or some tissue and gently bite down. This will stabilise the tooth until you can be seen. If possible, hold the tooth in place until your appointment with the emergency dentist.

If you are unable to put the tooth back in its socket, put it in milk while you contact the dentist. It is important not to let the tooth dry out as otherwise it will die. Do not use water to keep the tooth in as this will kill the cells on the root, which are vital for reattaching the tooth.


If you experience toothache, contact us to arrange for an appointment as soon as possible. Rinse your mouth with warm salty water and use dental floss to clean between the teeth. If there is swelling, apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth in the affected area. Don’t apply aspirin or painkillers directly to the affected tooth, as they can dissolve and burn the gum tissue.

Dislodged or fallen out crown

If your filling or crown falls out, contact us to make an appointment to replace or repair it as soon as possible. In the meantime, slip the crown back over the tooth if you can, and keep it in place with denture adhesive or temporary cement, available from most chemists.
