How to reach out if you need first aid?
We all encounter unexpected dental issues – a toothache, a loose implant crown, broken dentures, a trauma caused by an accident or something else that requires immediate intervention.
Please call 6 32 32 32 to book a first aid visit. If you are not calling during office hours, please leave your name, phone number and a description of the issue on the voicemail, and our administrators will contact you in the morning of the next working day.
How to relieve a toothache at home?
Temporary relief for a toothache can be provided by painkillers like ibuprofen and paracetamol. Avoid placing the painkiller on the gums and causing unnecessary irritation to the tooth. In no case should you exceed the daily recommended dosage noted on the package or information leaflet of the medicine.
Do not apply warm compresses, as this might cause the inflammation to spread. In the case of a trauma, it is recommended to apply a cold compress to the inflamed area. When making cold compresses, it is good to use a towel between the compress and the skin to avoid damaging the skin. Consuming cold non-alcoholic drinks can also provide relief.
It might be good to raise your pillow higher while sleeping, as this reduces the accumulation of inflammatory liquid in the head region, thus reducing the inflammation.
In the case of a fractured tooth, dentures or braces, it is recommended to keep the broken pieces and to bring them along to your visit.
