Toothache, loose crowns, broken teeth
In the event of a tooth emergency, it is best to contact our practice team immediately by phone or to make an emergency appointment online.
Toothache is an important signal from your body and indicates that something is wrong with your teeth or jaw. So don’t ignore them and make an appointment in our practice.
But often occur when it is least appropriate: at night, on the weekend, or on vacation.
SOS tips for tooth emergencies
Loosening of the crown, bridge, inlay:
If a crown, bridge, or inlay loosens, you can temporarily reattach it with toothpaste or denture adhesive cream. Call us so that we can make an appointment for the next day to repair your filling or your dentures.
Inflammation of the gums:
In the case of a small inflammation of the gums, rinsing with a mouth rinse solution that contains the active ingredient chlorhexidine, for example, Chlorhexamed, Curasept, or Meridol-PARO.
However, gingivitis should always examine by, as periodontitis can develop from it, which in advanced stages can endanger the hold of healthy teeth.
Make an appointment in our practice so that we can find out the cause and treat it early on.
In the case of sensitive teeth, special toothpaste, for example, Elmex sensitive or Sensodyne, can actually alleviate the symptoms. If your teeth suddenly become hypersensitive, it helps if you rub your teeth with one of these toothpaste and leave it on for half an hour.
Make sure to make an appointment with us so that we can find out the cause of your pain and treat it.
Bleeding after tooth extraction:
If bleeding occurs after a tooth extraction, you can stop the bleeding by cooling the cheek and biting lightly on a clean tissue handkerchief.
If the bleeding doesn’t stop, gets worse, or you continue to feel an unpleasant taste in your mouth, please call us to make an appointment! Outside of our office hours, you can find out the current tooth emergency service on our practice phone number given above. If you have to have an operation before the weekend, you will be given the number of a doctor in case a complication occurs.
If you have a severe toothache and your cheek is swelling, please come to our practice immediately or contact the tooth emergency dental service. Please call us before you come to us so that we can plan your visit.
Throbbing pain that is stronger at night:
Severe, throbbing pain that increases at night and cannot be relieved with normal pain relievers also indicates inflammation in the tooth and should be treated immediately.
If a piece of your tooth has broken off in an accident or the tooth has been knocked out completely, please store it in pasteurized milk or a sterile saline solution from the pharmacy. If necessary, you can just put it in clean water. Please do not touch the root of the tooth. Then go to the dentist immediately. This way the tooth can still be saved and reinserted.
