If your need is out of hours and you are unable to contact us, please see the following notes which may help relieve pain:


A very persistent toothache is always a sign that you need to see your dentist as soon as practicable. In the meantime:

  • try to obtain relief by rinsing the mouth with water;
  • try to clean out debris from any obvious cavities;
  • use dental floss to remove any food that might be trapped within the cavity (especially between the teeth);
  • if swelling is present, place a cold compress to the outside of the cheek;
  • take pain relief if necessary

Knocked out tooth:

If a tooth is knocked out, time is critical for successful replanting:

  • Try and get to your dentist within 30 minutes
  • If the tooth is dirty, rinse the tooth in milk holding it by the crown (not roots).
  • If milk is not available, rinse the tooth in water for a few seconds only, or have patient suck it clean,
  • If possible put the tooth back in the socket.
  • If the tooth cannot be replanted, wrap in cling wrap or place it in milk or in the patient’s mouth inside the cheek.

Broken tooth:

You should go to your dentist as soon as practicable after breaking a tooth.

  • Try to clean debris from the injured area with warm water.
  • If caused by a blow, place a cold compress on the face next to the injured tooth to minimize swelling.
  • Try to find all the bits that are missing and bring them to your dentist, keeping them moist.
  • Some broken bits can be bonded back onto the teeth almost invisibly.
