Toothache can feel like hell on earth: it’s a never-ending pain that interferes with all your daily activities. As dentists, we find it really satisfying to treat these painful conditions so that you can experience immediate pain relief and get back to normal.

What can be done for acute tooth pain?

If you’re an existing patient, we do our very best to find you an appointment within 48 hours with a dentist who can relieve your pain. This guarantee is provided to everyone who comes for regular check-up appointments.

Urgent appointments are for the sole purpose of treating the acute dental problem. We will move as quickly as we can to provide pain relief with anaesthesia, before performing any necessary treatment, such as fillings, root canals or extraction of a tooth. 

Depending on how complex the problem is, you will be given additional medication or a temporary treatment to help relieve the pain while waiting for an appointment with an appropriate dental specialist who can provide a permanent solution. This could be the case if you have complex, inflamed dental nerves and pulp that require the use of a microscope, a chipped tooth that needs to be extracted or wisdom teeth that require minor surgery.

What can be done for acute tooth pain?

What do we consider to be urgent problems?

The following problems are regarded as acute dental problems:

  • Acute dental pain that can no longer be controlled using painkillers (paracetamol or Ibuprofen)
  • Trauma resulting from a fall or impact
  • Dental pain during pregnancy
  • Dental pain in children
  • Formation of an abscess with facial swelling

On the basis of general guidelines, we do not consider other problems to be acute. This means we cannot always guarantee an appointment within 24 hours, though we will always try to find you one.

Emergency treatments for new patients

For new patients or those who do not attend regularly, we will, of course, always try to do our best but we cannot guarantee that you will be able to have an appointment within 24 hours. 

If you are a new patient with an emergency appointment, we always recommend that you make an appointment afterwards for an initial examination, during which we will perform a full dental screening to try to avoid any annoying toothache in the future.
