Outlined below are a few helpful guides to assist you when dealing with dental emergencies:

Same-day tooth pain relief

Toothache can occur in the teeth and around the jaws and is caused by a number of different dental issues.

Usually, the pain begins suddenly and can range from mild discomfort to severe pain. It can come and go, but it can also be constant and made worse by eating or drinking.

What can cause toothache?

How toothache is treated depends on the cause of the pain.

The dental pulp is most likely the cause of pain as it is made of delicate tissue containing blood vessels and sensitive nerves.

Some of the most common reasons for pains are infection, tooth decay, receding gums and cracked teeth.

Other reasons for toothache that don’t involve the dental pulp include:

  • Ulcers on the gums
  • Sinus inflammation
  • The eruption of wisdom teeth

At American Smile your mouth is examined, and an x-ray of your teeth may be taken to help identify the issue.

Small X-rays are included in the cost of your appointment.

What is the cost of the Emergency Appointment at American Smile?

Total cost of this appointment is £150 to £300, depending on cause of pain.

Please see the full breakdown of charges below.

If the toothache is a result of tooth decay, the decay will be removed and replaced with a white filling.

Depending on location of the filling there will be a charge of £100 to £150.

If the dental pulp is infected, a course of antibiotics or a root canal treatment may be necessary.

Prescription writing is included in the cost of your Emergency appointment at American Smile, however if we need to open and dress the root canal - there will be a charge of £150 added.

Wisdom Teeth

We often see patients with pain caused by wisdom teeth.

In this case we will relieve your pain on the day by flushing and cleaning around the area with ultrasonic instruments.

A charge of £50 to £75 is added to the Emergency appointment cost in this case.

Outlined below are a few helpful guides to assist you when dealing with dental emergencies:

  • Broken Tooth / Lost Filling
    If you have a broken tooth or a lost filling, firstly - don’t panic! Usually these situations are only irritating to the tongue and a little sensitive. Keep the area as clean as you can and contact the practice at your earliest convenience.
  • Lost Crown
    If the tooth is not sensitive or unsightly, keep the crown in a safe place and contact us at your earliest convenience. If the tooth is sensitive or unsightly, you can get some temporary crown cement from your local chemist but please do not use any other glue-based materials, as this may prevent us from being able to re-cement the crown permanently.
  • Painful Wisdom Teeth
    Sometimes food gets trapped beneath the part of the gum that covers the wisdom tooth. This can cause swelling, pain and occasionally can prevent full opening of the mouth. In such cases, the best thing to do is to keep the area clean with a toothbrush and mouthwash. You may also need some painkillers – whatever you normally take for headaches should be suitable. If this does not resolve the problem, please contact the practice.
  • Damaged or Dislodged Teeth Due to Trauma
    If the tooth has been cracked or chipped but is not too painful, please do not be overly concerned. Contact us as soon as possible and we will be able to help. For more serious accidents, please visit the A&E department of your nearest hospital. Occasionally, it may be possible to save teeth that have been completely knocked out - the best chance of doing this is if the tooth is stored in either the person's mouth or in milk until you reach a dental professional. If you don’t have an emergency but still want to schedule an appointment for routine care, just call or contact us online.

And finally, the most common dental emergency: TOOTHACHE

Make sure your mouth is kept clean by rinsing it with warm water. If it’s swollen, place a cold compress on your cheek and use paracetamol or ibuprofen for the pain. However, never put aspirin or any other painkiller directly on the gum as this can cause burns and make the situation worse.
