    Ive been having toothache, though today it was particularly bad so I luckily managed to get an appointment at the dentist, they did an x-ray and told me that I had some decay left in a tooth that only just got filled 2 months ago!
    So ive arranged an appointment to get it re-filled but the earliest they can book me in is on the 14th of Jan!
    Any idea of how im going to cope with the toothache till then? Also does anyone know how worse toothache can get or will it just stay at a similar level?
    :confused:

    If you're in pain, the dentist has to give you an emergency appointment within 7 days to treat the pain. So Id call them back and say that, and you should hopefully get an appointment before New Years.

    If you're not registered with a dentist, you should be able to find a walk-in dentist somewhere, where you can go, usually have to sit and wait a few hours but they'll treat it there and then. You'd have to phone the NHS helpline to find out where the closest one to you is

    Your dentist must give you an appt if you are in pain. We generally see patients same day if they are in pain.

    if i have a patient in pain and they are the process of treatment I always aim to see them within 24hours of them calling where possible.
    depending on how your pain is i would recommend ibuprofen but you do need to see a dentist to get it properly looked at. what sort of pain is it?

    I think my wisdom tooth ruptured yesterday and the tooth I need to get a root canal in also ruptured or something (don't know the lingo) I've had about 3 hours sleep and 300 useless paracetamol tablets.

    I have come to the conclusion that dental pain is the worst of all pains.

    :mad:
