COVID-19 UPDATE - Temporarily close - Updated 14th April

Emergency Dental Care Update
The Bristol Urgent Care Dental Hubs are now in operation. They have been established to receive the most urgent of dental emergencies during the Covid-19 crisis.
If you are a registered patient at The Dental Touch, we are still your first point of contact during this pandemic. We are available regarding any dental problems, concerns or queries you may have.
If you have a urgent dental problem then please either:-
1. Telephone the practice on 0117 924 4440 during operating hours.
2. You may also email the practice for non-urgent issues that may arise at: info@dental-touch.co.uk
You will be triaged by a dentist and your problem will be categorised by your definition of emergency dental need.
3. If you are an unregistered patient requiring emergency assistance, please call NHS 111 and you will be re-directed to the hubs after you have been triaged by them.
Definition of need:-
 
P1 – Patient requires immediate treatment on the day, therefore directed to an Urgent Dental Care Hub and or Hospital unit depending on severity.
 
P2 – Patient requires treatment within 24-hours and can be directed to an Urgent Dental Care Hub for management.
 
P3 – Patient has a dental emergency that can be managed with advice/analgesics/antibiotics and does not require treatment on the day/24-hrs and can be managed by a planned appointment at a later date.
 
Following triage and your definition of need, if required, you will be referred by us to an Urgent Dental Care Hub.
 
The Hub will acknowledge receipt of your referral and make contact with you to confirm your assessment and book an appointment if required.

Dental Emergency Tips

In the event that you do have an emergency and you are waiting for your dental appointment, then here is some advice.

Severe Toothache

The best option for severe toothache is to book an appointment with your dentist as they can find the cause of the pain and treat it as quickly as possible.

Some tips for severe toothache:

  1. Take painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, to help reduce pain and discomfort while you await your emergency dental appointment.
  2. Apply a cold compress directly over the area onto your cheek to help reduce the pain (but not directly on the tooth as this can increase the pain).
Knocked out tooth

Some top tips for a knocked out tooth include:

  1. Without touching anything other than the tooth itself (to avoid more damage or infection), put the tooth back the right way round in the correct socket.
  2. If this is not possible to put the tooth back in the correct socket, then store the tooth between the teeth and cheek.
  3. If the tooth cannot go back inside the mouth then keep it wet by placing it in a sealed container with either the patient’s saliva or milk.
  4. Apply a cold compress to the patient’s cheek.
  5. Place some sterile gauze over the bleeding area if you have any, and ask the patient to bite on it.

Alternative dental emergency phone numbers

An alternative to an emergency dentist is calling NHS Direct on 111 for help. They may be able to offer you free dental emergency advice.
