Advice for some common

dental emergencies in Edgware

Please phone our friendly receptionists for an emergency dental appointment and they will be able to offer you specific advice over the phone. Here is some advice for the more common dental emergencies and how you can help treat them whilst you are waiting to see us.



Constant toothache can be extremely painful. Take painkillers to help numb the pain. Ibuprofen can help with any swelling but please make sure you follow the dosage on the packet. Applying a cold compress to your cheek can help ease the pain. Avoid hot and cold food and drinks.


Knocked-out tooth

Knocking out a tooth can cause shock and pain. If you have any kind of injuries from a fall, please see a doctor or go straight to A&E. Take painkillers or paracetamol to help with the pain. Don’t touch the root of the tooth, only handle the crown or top of the tooth. If you’re able to put the tooth back into your gum, you will have more chance of saving your tooth. If this isn’t possible, then keep the tooth in milk until you get to the emergency dentist. Do not remove any tissue fragments from the lost tooth. Apply pressure to the gum with a clean piece of cloth to control any bleeding.



Take painkillers. Rinse your mouth in salty water to alleviate the pain.

Frequently Asked Questions about Emergency Dentist

What should I do if I knock my adult tooth out?
Handle the tooth by the crown and not the root of the tooth. Don’t try to rinse the tooth or wash off any attached tissue or roots. If you can, put the tooth back into your mouth from where it was knocked out as your tooth will have more chance of survival. If this isn’t possible, then put the knocked-out tooth into a cup of milk and bring it with you to the emergency dentist.
What can I do for pain with wisdom teeth?
Take some paracetamol or painkillers for the pain being careful to follow the dosage on the packet. Book an appointment to see us. We will be able to assess on the next course of action once you are here.
My filling has come out, what should I do?
Where possible, save the filling and bring it with you to the emergency dentist. Take a paracetamol or painkiller to help alleviate any pain.
