Covid 19 update 27/03/2020

Due to the current situation in the UK regarding the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus, we have been using our own clinical judgment and feel we have acted in the best interests of our patients and staff. 

Public Health England and NHS England have declered that all non-urgent and routine dental care is not permitted during this pandemic situation and regrettably the practice will be closed for treatment for few weeks.

We feel that it is essential that we all do our part to reduce the spread of this virus.

Urgent Care

If you have a dental problem that needs urgent attention, please call 111 to be referred to an urgent care center.

 

If you would like any advice over the phone please call the surgery number 01628 486278 and follow the instructions. 


Here are a few things you can do first if you have a problem:

 
If you have pain, try and manage it with painkillers that you would normally take. If the pain is more severe a combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen can be helpful as long as you are medically permitted to take these.
 
A broken tooth or filling can be quite startling at first but very often should not result in any pain. It may feel very sharp at first but your tongue should get used to it very quickly. If the tooth feels particularly sharp, a small piece of chewed chewing gum placed in the cavity may help. It may be sensitive initially to hot or cold liquids but this should also ease. 
 
If you have a sore or swollen gum, clean the area thoroughly with a toothbrush and bathe the area with hot salty water; in half a cup of hot water, dissolve half a teaspoon of salt and rinse the area four times a day. 
  

Please be safe during this crisis by following Government advice by Social Distancing, limit the number of times you need to leave your home and get in the habit of washing your hands frequently, even if you do not got out. 

 

Healthy Teeth

 
As we have been advised to stay at home as much as possible, it is very easy to develop unhealthy habits such as snacking frequently on high sugar foods such as cakes, biscuits, chocolate and sweets which will all lead to tooth decay. Try and limit these as a treat after lunch or dinner and same applies to fruit and fruit products such as juices, smoothies, dried fruit and fruit yoghurts. 
 
If you do wish to snack between meals, try and stick to savoury foods; sandwiches, toast, nuts, cheese and crackers. 
 
Remember: if it tastes sweet, it’ll contain sugar which could cause tooth decay. 
 

Healthy Gums

 
Use the extra time that you have now to get your gums really healthy: Brush twice a day for 5 minutes each time and in addition use dental floss or interdental brushes once a day and your bleeding gums will miraculously become healthy. 
 
 
Keep well, stay safe, stay at home and don’t forget to look after your oral health as well. 

Thank you for your continued support and hopefully we will see you all very soon.
