What is the advice for common dental emergencies in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire?

Some of the more common dental emergencies that we see with patients from Fiskerton, Market Rasen, Sudbrooke, Gainsborough, Reepham, Cherry Willingham, Keelby Nettleham, Welton, Caistor, and Lincolnshire include:

A knocked-out tooth

This is a horrible experience that is distressing for everyone. If you have experienced any injuries other than the knocked-out tooth, we would recommend that you visit A&E to be checked out.

If you have the knocked-out tooth to hand, make sure you only pick it up by the crown and not by the roots. Save the knocked-out tooth either in your mouth or in a cup of cold milk to stop it drying out and bring it with you when you see the emergency dentist in Market Rasen.

Toothache

Persistent toothache can be agonising. Phone us for an appointment with the emergency dentist. Take paracetamol for the pain and you can rinse your mouth with salty water to help ease the pain.

Abscess

A dental abscess is caused by an infection which leads to a build up of pus in the tooth, gum or jaw. You may experience pain, swelling or inflammation in your mouth. Phone the surgery in Market Rasen for a dental emergency appointment. Take paracetamol for any pain. Stay upright and do not lie flat. Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.

Frequently asked questions about dental emergencies

Is there any way I can prevent injuries to my teeth?

Accidents are not preventable but there are some measures you can take to avoid injuries to your teeth and gums. These include wearing a mouthguard when playing sports. Avoid chewing on hard things like sweets and popcorn kernels which can crack your teeth. Don’t use your teeth to cut sellotape or chew on pen lids because this can also cause damage to your teeth.

What can I do if I’ve cut the inside of my mouth?

If you have a tear or laceration to any of the soft tissue inside your mouth such as cheek, tongue, mouth or lips then this is classed as a dental emergency. Call us at the surgery in Market Rasen as soon as possible and whilst you are waiting to see the emergency dentist, clean your wound with warm water. If you have a lot of bleeding, you should go to A&E.

What should I do about a lost crown?

Call us the dental surgery at Market Rasen for a dental emergency appointment. If you still have the lost pieces of the crown, please bring them with you to the emergency dentist. If your crown cannot be repaired, you will be fitted with a temporary crown and then fitted with a permanent custom-made crown later.
