Dental Emergency Management

Dentist in Southampton Ferry Dental Centre

Experiencing a dental emergency can happen unexpectedly, causing pain and the need for immediate care. Whether it’s a severe toothache, a broken tooth, or an issue with your dental crown or bridge, knowing how to respond can prevent further discomfort and complications.

Steps to Take in a Dental Emergency

Severe Toothache: Rinse your mouth with water and use dental floss to remove any trapped food particles. If the pain persists, contact your dentist immediately for an urgent dental appointment. You can take painkillers like paracetamol or ibuprofen if you have no allergy.

Broken or Cracked Tooth: Rinse your mouth with water and save any broken pieces. Contact your dentist right away to schedule an emergency dental appointment. Avoid further irritation with hot or cold foods and drinks. Avoid chewing on the affected side until you see your dentist. If you suffer from pain, take paracetamol or ibuprofen if you have no allergies.

Crown or Bridge Issues: If your crown or bridge becomes loose or dislodged, try to keep it safe. Avoid chewing on that side and contact your dentist promptly to recement your crown or bridge.

Knocked-Out Tooth: If a tooth has been knocked out, try to keep it moist. You can place it back in its socket if possible or keep it in the mouth. Alternatively, keep it in milk. Contact your dentist immediately for the best chance of saving the tooth.

Lost Filling: If a filling is lost, keep the area clean. You can use over-the-counter temporary filling. Schedule an appointment with your dentist promptly to have the filling replaced.

Abscess: A dental abscess is a serious condition that can cause severe pain and swelling. Rinse your mouth with mild salt water several times a day to reduce discomfort. Avoid holding your hand against your cheek, as warmth can increase swelling. Use a cold compress on the outside of your cheek to help reduce swelling and pain. Contact your dentist for an urgent dental appointment to treat the infection.

Prevent Future Emergencies: Regularly schedule dental examinations to check all your teeth and receive any necessary treatments before they become emergencies.

I have had terrible experiences at dentists in the past where treatments have been rushed or very painful, but this wasn’t the case with Ferry Dental. Instead of rushing into a specific treatment, all options have been explored and explained by Dr. Iuri and all my questions were answered before jumping into any decisions. All staff are super friendly and professional, definitely recommend.

I have had a fantastic experience with Ferry Dental.I approached them as an anxious patient (having not been to the dentist for nearly a decade) and the staff were so friendly and calming. Despite having a big cry before my first appointment my consultation was fantastic and I left feeling much more comfortable with the prospect of going to the dentist.Since then I’ve had many appointments with Marwa (orthodontist) and the hygienist and no longer dread or cry before appointments. Marwa in particular is so kind and friendly and always checks in with me throughout appointments to make sure I’m calm and happy.All the staff have been so friendly and know who I am and have been fully informed of my anxiety. It’s been very relieving to go from appointment to appointment and each practitioner knows exactly who I am, what I’ve had done, and really look after me as an individual.Also a massive shout out to the reception team (particularly Anna) who are always so so friendly and greet me by name and know who I am.I highly recommend this dentist - particularly those who hate going to the dentist and/or suffer from anxiety. A massive thank you to Ferry Dental for helping me get over my fear of the dentist ❤️

I had a great experience at Ferry Dental Centre. The staff was very friendly and professional, and the facility was clean and modern. Dr Denis took the time to explain everything to me and I felt very comfortable throughout my visit. I will definitely be recommending Ferry Dental Centre to my friends and family.
