Dental Emergency visit in Steps

On calling our Newcastle dental practice, you’ll be requested to provide your preliminary details, like name and phone number. You’ll be given detailed directions, along with parking information to reach our clinic. You will be seen by your dentist at the earliest same day appointment slot.

Your dentist at Gosforth Dental Surgery will take detailed history of the pain, take some X-rays and diagnose the reason of the toothache and discuss all the available options with you.

Once you agree with your dentist on the treatment option to relieve the pain, your dentist may use local anaesthetic if needed and start the treatment to relieve your toothache.

Causes of toothache

Toothache can be due several reasons; a wisdom tooth, broken or chipped teeth, or implant broken veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, a gum infection, a crown or a bridge denture that has fallen off, dental injures, knocked out teeth. We offer the full range of dental emergency services including all the regular treatments you need to maintain your oral health. This Newcastle dentist has it all covered:

Frequently asked questions

No. You do not need to be a registered patient at Gosforth Dental Surgery in Newcastle to be seen by the emergency dentist. We will see you and relief your pain whether you are registered or not.

Contact your dentist at Gosforth Dental Surgery as soon as possible about your toothache if:

  • You have a toothache that lasts longer than 1 or 2 days
  • Your toothache is severe
  • You have a fever, earache, or pain upon opening your mouth wide

Because the symptoms of a toothache may resemble other medical conditions or dental problems, it can be difficult to diagnose the cause without a complete evaluation by your dentist at our Newcastle dental practice. Contact your dentist immediately if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Swelling around the tooth area
  • Continuous lasting pain
  • Pain on biting
  • A foul-tasting discharge

Treatment for a toothache depends on the cause. If a cavity is causing the toothache, your dentist at Gosforth Dental Surgery will fill the cavity or possibly extract the tooth, if necessary. A root canal might be needed if the cause of the toothache is determined to be an infection of the nerve inside the tooth. Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics if there is fever or swelling of the jaw.

Since most toothaches are the result of tooth decay, the key to preventing toothaches is establishing a regular oral hygiene routine and sticking to it. For example, failure to brush and floss regularly after meals can significantly increase your risk of developing cavities, which can cause toothaches. Regular dental visits at our Newcastle dental practice will also help prevent problems from developing. Keeping your mouth healthy is an essential piece of your overall health.
