ADVICE FOR GENERAL DENTAL PROBLEMS
1/ Broken teeth: if you have a lost filling or chipped/broken tooth. We recommend that you consider purchasing a travel temporary filling kit available from most large chemist stores.
2/ Loose or Lost crowns: We recommend you may want to consider trying to replace it with Fixodent denture adhesive. Do not use a Superglue adhesive.
3/ Toothache: This is best managed with pain relief; we recommend using Paracetamol and or Ibuprofen for those patients who are able to take it. Ibuprofen is contraindicated for Children and Asthmatics. Warning do not exceed the stated dose, if in doubt speak to your Pharmacist for their advice.
4/ Swollen Face: We recommend attending the Accident and Emergency department at your local Hospital as soon as possible.
5/ Bleeding after extraction: Attend Accident and Emergency department.
6/ Broken dentures: Contact the local mobile denture repair service Tracy 07747445167.
7/ Trauma: Attend Accident and Emergency department.
ADVICE FOR ORTHODONTIC PROBLEMS
1/ Brace digging in? Consider applying wax over the area as already advised when the brace was fitted, this is available from most large chemists.
2/ Bracket is loose/detached. Leave this alone as its unlikely to cause a problem, consider applying wax.
3/ Lost or broken removeable appliances. At the moment we are unable to offer any service to repair or replace appliances as our dental laboratories have closed due the Coronavirus crisis.
Please remember, your safety is our main concern. If you attend our dental surgery there is a real risk of Infection with Coronavirus.
