Emergency Dental Care
Windmill Dental Care understands most of us hope never to be faced with having to deal with a dental emergency, but they can and do happen, no matter how good your oral care routine. Are you looking for an NHS dentist or a Private Dentist? We provide both. If you need an emergency dentist give our understanding reception team a call as soon as you can.
Did you know…
An avulsed (knocked out) tooth may be successfully re-planted and saved if seen by a dentist within 1 hour. You should pick up the tooth by the crown (not the root), gently rinse with water if dirty (not scrubbed) and if possible re insert into the socket making sure it is inserted the correct way! If the tooth cannot be reinserted place the tooth in milk, saline solution or the patient's own saliva and transport to the dentist immediately. Do not attempt to re-plant primary (baby) teeth.
