Pain & Toothache Treatment

Here at Smileworks we see many patients with all types of toothache.  Toothache can be caused by many different things and can range in severity from mild discomfort to severe pain.  Patients will often present with toothache for the following reasons:



Pain can be treated by your dentist extremely efficiently and patients are often be amazed at how we can put an end to their toothache very quickly.  Antibiotics, painkillers and many other types of dental work can minimise pain.  Sometimes the painful nerves can be removed under local anaesthetic and this can leave you pain free.  To learn more about endodontic therapy take a look at our main page here: Root Canal Liverpool.  Infections can be treated by antibiotics and the pain from abscesses and swelling will soon subside if treated with the correct prescriptions.




Patients often come in for emergency appointments if they notice swelling.  Swelling in the mouth is often accompanied by pain and discomfort and can be caused by:


Swelling is mainly treated with antibiotics.  Your dentist will identify the cause of the swelling and fix it for you leaving you pain free.


Sometimes problems with dentures can cause you pain and swelling.  If you have denture pain then Smileworks can help.  Call us to make an emergency appointment or visit our dentures page.




Bleeding in your mouth can be caused by a number of things.  And we’re not just talking about a bit of blood in your spit after brushing.  This is not ideal but it’s also not an emergency either.  Bleeding can be caused by:



If you’ve had an extraction at another practice or an implant placed and it starts bleeding then you’ll need to see us immediately.  Your dentist will have advised you what’s the normal amount of bleeding to expect but if it’s more than expected or uncontrolled then you’ll need to come in to see us straight away.



Trauma & Knocks



Dental trauma can be anything from a broken or chipped tooth to a bad accident involving breaking of many teeth and trauma to the jaw and gums.  Here at Smileworks we frequently see sportspeople who have been injured playing sports.  It goes without saying that protection is very important when engaging in contact sports like football, rugby, hockey and sparring.  We can fix chips and cracks very easily and the restorations will be so natural as to be impossible to detect.  You’re teeth will look just the way they were before the accident.


If you’ve lost a filling or are experiencing pain from an old filling and thing it might need replacing then take a look at our dedicated page to replacing fillings.



We also have people who’ve had accidents at home or work and need a tooth repairing.  But you don’t need to be a boxer to suffer dental trauma.  Patients can break teeth chewing pens, biting their nails, grinding or clenching or even eating.  The damage can be done to your natural teeth or existing dental work can become damaged.  Your dentist can repair your smile and have you looking great again in no time.  Remember that your £50 fee is for your assessment only and you will be quoted for any emergency treatment at your appointment.  If you need crowns, implants, veneers or other permanent dental work then this will be subject to our normal fees.  Follow the links here to read more about the dental implants cost.



Wisdom Tooth Pain

A huge amount of dental emergencies are caused by wisdom tooth pain.  This is pain that occurs mainly in 18-30 year olds and can be moderate or severe pain.  Wisdom tooth pain happens when the tooth is half in and half out and has not properly erupted.  This can be because there’s not enough space in the mouth.  The partly erupted wisdom tooth has a flap of gum covering it and food gets caught under the flap.  This causes infection and inflammation.



You may experience a bad taste and bad smells and maybe abscess-like symptoms.  The pain and swelling can involve just the gum and tooth area or be all around the side of the face and neck.  Your lymph nodes can become inflamed and you might have difficulty opening your mouth because of the pain. Although pretty nasty sounding, this type of problem is very easy to fix with rinsing out the infection and perhaps, in very limited instances, with antibiotics.

When to dial 999


In the following circumstances you should dial 999 and ask for an ambulance:



If you’re not sure whether to call an ambulance then just call 999 and they will be able to help you.  Alternatively dial the NHS 111 number for emergency assistance.

I was at the dentist for a temporary dressing / filling and a scale & polish this morning, the ladies that tended to my teeth were Paula and Tamzin... they took extra steps to explain exactly what is going on with my teeth and to ensure that I was okay and comfortable with the forthcoming procedures... typically I would bee more nervous but today I felt comfortable at all times and the job on my teeth was great, safe, quick and efficient, I find solace in the fact that they will take extra lengths to preserve my natural teeth👍👌read more

After bad experiences with dentists in the past, I decided to try Smileworks and I’m so happy I did. I received treatment from Zoe who is so lovely, chatting throughout the sessions and talking through each part of the treatment, she really makes it a calm and easy experience and I have never had any problems with any work done by her. Thank you, Zoe! The front of house staff are also extremely friendly and very helpful, an all-round, great dentist to go to!read more

Cant thank you enough for making me feel at ease, knowing it is not easy for me to go out and about without make up due to years of acne. Cannot wait for my next session!read more

Had an appointment with Patri for a painful wisdom tooth. I was terrified of the extraction but she was absolutely amazing. Fantastic job! Also, if you think Smileworks might be a bit pricey, think again. I ended up paying considerably less than what another dentist would have charged me. A super happy customer 🙂read more

Went to Smileworks for lip fillers and had a wonderful experience! I had Susan doing my fillers and she is absolutely amazing at what she does.. She is so so lovely and easy to get on with and answered all my questions and worries before I even asked and made sure she discussed exactly the outcome I wanted. She made me feel completely safe and at ease which is what I was hoping for as it was my first time. I cant recommend Susan enough, she is an absolute gem and is truly amazing at what she does, I love my new lips! Also the girls at reception were lovely and very helpful, I even had a call from Davina the day after (who was really really lovely) to see how I was and if i had any questions. It is obvious that they care about their patients and the work that they do for them.read more

I had semi-permanent makeup (eyebrows) done by Hannah. What can I say? I LOVE them. They have changed my face and my confidence! Hannah is lovely and takes her time to talk you through everything. I felt at ease with her-she's friendly and approachable and doesn't make you feel silly for asking questions. She goes through the design process and makes sure you are 100% happy before continuing. She spent hours designing my brows with me until they were perfect. Seems nothing is too much trouble for her!! Would definitely recommend and I shall most definitely be back in the future! (Should also note everyone I have come into contact with at Smileworks has also been lovely!!) 😁😁read more
