What does an emergency appointment include?

This appointment will include everything possible to relieve your child’s pain and alleviate your concerns.

An appointment is usually half an hour and the cost includes X-rays of the tooth that is causing pain, temporary filling for the tooth that is causing pain, prescription of antibiotics for facial swelling, any immediate trauma management.

Important to know: If there is a facial swelling first course of action is prescribing antibiotics to address infection, as extraction of the tooth is rarely possible on the day due to risk of infection spreading to other areas. In some instances however extraction is possible - this will be determined at the time of your Emergency appointment with us.

Tips for dealing with common dental emergencies

Knocked-out baby tooth

Don’t attempt to put it back in the socket, as this could risk damaging the permanent tooth underneath. Instead, try and stop the bleeding by applying gentle pressure with gauze or a muslin for around 10 minutes. Give your child paracetamol or ibuprofen for the pain, but never place aspirin or any other painkiller directly on the gums, as this can cause them to burn.
