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:  

 

 

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.    

 

Smileworks Emergency Number: 07507847521  

 

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.

Absolutely perfect. I booked an emergency appointment yesterday due to an infected tooth and was seen today. Got to meet the lovely Tom and Lacy, both were extremely patient with me as I have a phobia of dentists and can be a bit of a baby. They... kept reassuring me and making sure I was ok every step of the way throughout the extraction. They really put me at ease (even if it didn’t seem like I was) The reception team were lovely also and the whole process was fabulous. Thank you all.read more

I came in for a dental emergency and was seen quickly. The entire staff was friendly and professional. They adhered to extra safety procedures like a seamless part of their regular process. I was seen by Michelle and Emma, who were excellent for a... nervous patient. I've since gone back for both routine dental care and a filling. Dr. Clare and Tamsin were wonderful. Aniesa, who performed my filling, was incredibly careful and extremely thorough; she takes the time to make sure that everything is absolutely perfect, and makes patient comfort a priority. This practice is safe, meticulous and compassionate.read more

I first came to Smileworks as a dental patient at the begining of January for an emergency/examination appointment having not been to a dentist for a while. The fantastic reception staff where incredibly welcoming and so helpful with regarding... booking an appointment. I had the lovely Baris and Emma carry out my appointment who explained everything thoroughly, professionally and kept me at ease throughout my time there. I returned back to the practice and had the absolute pleasure of having Brian and Abi performing my treatment. I cannot thank them enough for making the appointment so relaxed but professional. The nature and process of the appointment was thoroughly explained and i was kept involved at all times. They had me laughing through out and i had every confidence in them knowing that i was being taken care of by the best hands. I cannot recommend smileworks enough! Thank you to all of the staff! 🙂read more

After a really horrible front face fall on some black ice a few days ago, I ended up cracking a tooth and breaking another. I’ve never had any dental work and was really nervous about coming.in. I felt so comfortable from the moment I booked the... appointment and felt at the ease throughout my emergency filling treatment with Baris and Emma. I was then referred to Dr Patricia who put a splint on in attempt to save the front tooth and I really felt taken care of all day. I wasn’t sure there would be any fix but luckily they’ve managed to restore my smile and I already can’t wait for my permanent fix in a few weeks! Would highly recommend!read more

Attended an emergency appointment on Saturday with my 8 year old daughter after an accident where she chipped a sizeable piece from her front adult tooth. We were reassured by the staff and provided with masks and hand gel and instructed about the... Covid-19 Health and Safety procedures in place before we arrived and had no concerns about what was going to happen so my daughter was kept nice and calm, even being given the choice of having Little Mix on throughout the procedure. Rebecca Newbold looked after her perfectly and my daughter even dozed off a bit during the time in the chair. The assistant was also very professional and both Rebecca and her assistant, despite wearing the full PPE, made sure my daughter and I were calm and happy throughout.My daughter had the biggest happiest smile at the end of the treatment and we would highly recommend for future procedures. Thank you so much for fitting us in and looking after us so well.read more

Wow. Called for an emergency tooth appointment last week. Was seen by the ‘amazing’ Patri the same day. The welcome upon arrival from the team was just super and they made me feel very welcomed and also very relaxed (which was reassuring given the... toothache) Patri has since then seen me again to perform root canal and it was a whole other level to my past experiences. The whole team and service in here are streets ahead not only in expertise but customer service and attention to detail. Can’t recommend enough. Thank you 🤩read more

This is the best dental practice in Liverpool. I was in complete agony over wisdom toothache. I booked an emergency appointment on saturday morning and was seen same day.

Having been left with a 4/5 week wait to see an oral surgeon I was referred to by my own dentist for an emergency extraction, I had no option but to seek help elsewhere as I was coming to the end of a course amoxicillin antibiotic and had maxed out... on painkillers (ibuprofen and paracetamol). The pain was unabating.Smileworks was the first name I came to when I entered "emergency extraction" into my iPad. I phoned the number, was spoken to right away, paid a consultation fee and made an appointment within 36 hours.Patricia and Lavinia took me into a space-age surgery after I filled in a form and listened to my tale of woe with genuine interest and proceeded to pluck the infected rear right bottom molar out with utmost professionalism.The whole process was pain free. I was made to feel so important and boy, am I glad "Smileworks" was top of the list on the net. The service and care I received was top of the list as well. Can't thank all the girls enough. 10/10, 5 Star, *****.read more

Amazing customer care and advice and treatment for removal of a very painful wisdom tooth. NHS removal via my own dentist was going to be 6-8weeks waiting time. Smileworks were very understanding and arranged emergency appointment and then an... extraction within a few days. There were no complications and the whole experience was first class. Everything was explained and there were excellent follow up calls to check I was Ok and no issues. So glad not to be taking anymore pain relief. Am considering switching my dentist!read more

I had visited my usual dentist and nothing was specifically done for my wisdom tooth, leading to swelling and more pain.My appointment with...

I've had two procedures done at Smileworks. The first one was an emergency sedated extraction of a very infected and abscessed tooth. For this procedure, My dentist was Krishan. Even though I am a very anxious person, Krishan was very kind and... patient and made me feel at ease. He played my favorite music for me and that's pretty much all I can remember! The procedure was successful and by the next morning I was surprisingly ok! The second procedure I had done was the removal of the root of a very infected tooth. My dentist for this procedure was MJ. MJ and her assistant were really great as well, keeping me calm throughout, playing music to ease my anxiety, and assuring me constantly that everything was going to be ok. When MJ gave me the injections to numb the area, I was initially worried that it would hurt as it always does, but to my surprise, I didn't feel a thing! This really came as a shock to me, as usually, this is something that worries me and sends me into panic mode as the injections are usually quite painful. As soon as the numbness wore off, I felt perfectly fine; very very little soreness. Afterwards, the lovely receptionist Mimi called me the next day to see how I was doing. All in all, I highly recommend Smileworks, they really take great care of their patients, before, during, and after any procedure. Thank you!! 🙂read more

Wow what an absolute amazing experience said no person ever going to the dentist. Well until now...Had severe pain due to a Wisdom tooth and couldn't sleep the night before and knew I had to finally face my fear and go to the dentist and get this... sorted. Sat up all night due to lack of sleep watching and reading horror stories on having a Wisdom tooth removed and was dreading it more and more as time went on.Called Smileworks at 9am Saturday morning to get an emergency appointment and was given one within 3 hours. When i arrived I was greeted with cheer into what could only be described as the coolest dental reception area of all time. The receptionist (forget her name) automatically put my mind at ease.Normally my experience at dentists was sit and wait for an absolute age to be called. Not at Smileworks. MJ came into the reception area so cheery and got me and brought me to the room which was something out of a futuristic movie it was absolutely amazing.From start to finish MJ kept my mind at ease telling me every step of the way on what was happening and what the plan of action was. We even meditated over the removal of my wisdom tooth which really calmed me down. MJ was absolutely amazing in the removal and I had built up such a hype and horror pictures of what was going to happen. The exact opposite happened.This had made me build up my confidence in a dentist again and I would highly highly highly recommend Smileworks to anyone.read more

Smileworks offered me an A1 service and managed to temporary fix my tooth until I returned home allowing me to continue my few days... away.Not only was the cost very reasonable for an emergency appointment their practice is the funkiest I’ve ever seen.The dental staff were all fantastic too, I couldn’t have asked for more.Just gutted that there isn’t a smileworks in Cambridgeshire!read more
