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.  

Swelling

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

    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.  Your 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.   Read more about treating wisdom tooth pain here: wisdom teeth removal. And about tooth extractions here.  

 

When to dial 999

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

You should call this number outside of our regular opening hours only.   This number is reserved for patients who need OUT OF HOURS EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE. *It is not an advice line* and you will be connected to an assistant who will only be able to make an appointment to see an emergency dentist.    

 

We love talking to you and helping you with your problems – but not in the middle of the night! Please call 0151 236 5166 for a chat and only call the emergency number in an emergency and with a payment card / availability ready to make an appointment.

The whole team are fantastic and professional and so nice.I would never go anywhere else.Thankyou Smileworks

I had my fixed braces fitted today by Eduardo and Nikola. I felt completely at ease and comfortable throughout my appointment. Staff at Smileworks are always very friendly and welcoming. Eduardo is excellent at what he does. He also carefully explained everything to me and answered any questions I had. I can’t wait to see the results! :)I also had an appointment with Zoe this week to have a filling replaced. Again, I was very pleased with everything and the treatment was painless!
