What Happens During A Complete Examination?

A comprehensive oral exam is key to evaluating and diagnosing all conditions of the oral cavity. A patient exam includes x-rays and a panoramic radiograph in addition to photographs. The dentist will then discuss all the findings and show the patient the results of the oral assessment.

What Should I Do If I Have a Dental Emergency?

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, you should seek treatment immediately. Call our Dental Emergency Line – Call +254 727 874 806 to speak to a Dentist in minutes

You do not need an appointment for a dental emergency. In the meantime, do your best to rinse out your mouth, stop the bleeding, and preserve your tooth in milk, saline solution, or water (if your tooth was knocked out). Applying a cold compress will help with swelling and pain until you get treatment.

What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency generally involves immediate risks to the patient, including the risk of infection or permanent tooth loss. Also, the patient will usually experience severe pain that cannot be eased with at-home remedies and requires professional treatment.
Some examples of a dental emergency include: knocked out teeth, cracked or chipped tooth, abscessed tooth or damage to the gums or tongue.
Many of these situations are a result of unexpected trauma to the mouth or sudden impact that damaged the teeth.

What Is the Best Painkiller for Severe Toothache?

If you are experiencing a painful toothache, some temporary remedies include over-the-counter pain medication (ibuprofen, acetaminophen, etc.), rinsing the mouth with warm salt water, flossing around the aching tooth to dislodge anything that could be causing the discomfort, using a dental anesthetic gel, sleeping with your head slightly elevated, and applying oil of cloves to the area. Although these help in the short term, be sure to schedule an appointment with our dentist for professional treatment as soon as possible.

How Can I Sleep with a Toothache?

When experiencing a toothache, you may find it difficult to sleep. Before you can see your dentist for treatment, try taking either ibuprofen or acetaminophen to ease the pain, then prop your head up with an extra pillow. Keeping your head elevated prevents blood from rushing to the tooth, which may intensify the pain. You can also try rinsing your mouth with warm salt water and applying an ice pack right before bed.
