Toothache In Surrey

Dental SOS!!

Cracking a tooth, chipping a filling or dealing with throbbing toothache is probably not on the top of your to-do list and getting to a dentist immediately can sometimes be an impossible task, especially if the emergency occurs in the middle of the night!  

Knowledge of dental emergencies can come in very handy, so here are a few tips to help you out in a dental related crisis….

Next time you’re in a chemists, have a look for a dental kit.  They contain enough handy things to temporarily help with most dental emergencies. For chipped teeth, temporary filling material can sm ooth over jagged edges and protect the nerve until you get to your dentist. You can also buy temporary dental cement, which secures loose crowns and bridges. An old wives tail says that mixing up some ground salt and pepper into a paste, using a drop or two of water, will also help!  Tooth ache is sometimes relieved by Oil of Cloves which is known to calm the nerve. It won’t take the pain away completely, but will go some way to taking the edge off.  Whisky or Brandy can be left to lie around the tooth, but don’t drink lots of it as a pain killer! Turning up drunk to the dentist probably isn’t a good idea!

So if you have a dental emergency or just looking for a new dentist, call Time Dental on 01252 723 008 and book a consultation today.
