Common problems Emergency Dentist Auckland can help you with

  • Toothache:  Tooth pain that keeps you awake at night can make your life a misery and cause distress to others. In 30 to 40 minutes we can usually identify the cause of your pain and discomfort and return your life to normal.
  • Broken tooth or snapped off tooth: Apart from the appearance problems, a broken or snapped off tooth can cut into your lip and tongue, causing further discomfort and damage. We can quickly smooth or make a repair. This will alleviate the cutting problem. If a nerve has been exposed, a covering or filling may provide permanent or a temporary solution.
  • Pain when biting or drinking hot or cold liquids (teeth sensitive to temperatures): This can cause negative consequences on your daily life. What we can do for you? There are a number of causes, in most cases we can pinpoint the problem and treat and relieve this for you.
  • Accidental injury: If you have suffered dental trauma and need prompt attention we are very familiar with all aspects of dental trauma. We can quickly assess your situation and stabilise loose teeth and repair broken or missing teeth. If an ACC claim is appropriate, we are very familiar with all the procedures and can simplify this for you.
  • Missing tooth: Missing tooth options are a frequent question we get. We can best answer this question by examining the missing tooth location and giving you options to choose from. This could be, leaving the space, a simple or temporary denture, or a dental bridge or dental implant. We can explain the costs and benefit of each option for you.
  • Swelling and Gum problems: Swollen face, sore gums or lump on gums or ulcers are other conditions we can also handle for you.

How to minimise the pain until you see the dentist?

“For there was never yet a philosopher that could endure the toothache patiently.” As emergency dentists Auckland, we believe Shakespeare was right. Toothache isn’t easy to endure.

The good news

With improved dental care and regular check-ups, the excruciating pain of a toothache is not as common as it once was. But when pain does occur in the mouth, it’s an important signal that you should not ignore – even if it goes away on its own.

How to relieve toothache pain?

The following advice from our emergency dentist Auckland is given with a degree of caution. If you have a medical condition, always be guided by your doctor…

Paracetamol

You can take pain relief such as 2 Paracetamol – 500mg tablets   every 4 to 6 hours – no more than 8 tablets per 24 hours.

Paracetamol Precautions

  • People with previous sensitivities, allergies to or bad reactions paracetamol should avoid it.
  • Paracetamol is very dangerous in overdose. If you suspect you have overdosed, contact a health practitioner and or poisons authority for advice as soon as possible.
  • This link provides a detailed and authoritive data on Paracetmol.

Anti-inflammatories

The common brands of aspirin or ibuprofen (Nurofen) or diclofenac (Voltaren) (there are others, the family of drugs is called NSAIDs) can be very beneficial due to their pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory qualities working together to relieve the toothache.

Anti-inflammatory Precautions

There are some precautions with aspirin and ibuprofen (NSAID) based pain relievers

  1. People with previous sensitivities, allergies to Ibuprofen or other NSAIDs or bad reactions should avoid these.
  2. Pregnant women shouldn’t take as there is risk to their unborn child
  3. People on other blood thinners should avoid or only take on the recommendation of their doctor or registered health provider
  4. People with gut conditions, stomach ulcers should avoid this family of drugs
  5. Kidney disease should only take on the recommendation of their doctor or registered health provider.
  6. Asthmatics and people with hay fever should use with caution or avoid if they have identified that they aggravate their conditions.
  7. Heart disease, previous history of strokes and even people with blood pressure issues need to take under advice from their medical practitioner.
  8. The NSAID drugs are very dangerous in overdose. If you suspect you have overdosed, contact  a health practitioner and or poisons authority for advice as soon as possible.

An old-fashioned remedy

Oil of Cloves can also work for toothache – it must be applied sparingly to the affected tooth. Care should be taken because it can burn or ulcerate the gums or skin of the mouth.
