Dentist for Chickens caring for emergencies
What should I do in an event of a dental emergency?
Please call the practice immediately so that we can arrange an emergency appointment as quickly and conveniently as possible.
What should I do to cure a toothache?
If you are suffering from a painful toothache, something is wrong that requires attention. Contact us immediately to organize an appointment. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol are recommended but do not exceed the maximum dose.
What should I do if I have a swelling?
Swellings are caused by an infection. Contact us immediately to receive treatment or antibiotics.
What should I do if I have fractured my tooth?
Fractured teeth can usually be restored so there is no need to panic. If the tooth is painful, avoid hot or cold food and beverages and avoid chewing on that side to relieve the tooth from the extremes of temperature and pressure. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol may also help. Pain-free treatment is usually available by contacting us quickly.
What if I have lost a crown?
Keep your crown safe so it can be re-cemented as soon as possible to avoid damage or the need for root canal treatment. Contact us immediately to book in an appointment with your local dentist practice.
What if I have knocked a tooth out?
- The tooth needs to be re-implanted into its socket immediately.
- Try not to handle the tooth root to protect the fibres around the root surface.
- If possible, place the tooth back into the socket and splint in place with silver paper.
- DO NOT place the tooth in water.
- DO place the tooth in cold milk or on one side of your mouth between your teeth and cheeks
- Contact us immediately to book in an appointment with your local dentist practice.
What if I have broken my denture?
Broken dentures can usually be repaired relatively easily. Please resist the temptation to glue them together yourself as this often makes a repair very difficult. Contact us to organise the repair at your local dentist practice.
