Guide to tooth pain

We’re open whenever your emergency happens.

What causes tooth pain?
Never ignore tooth pain

As tooth loss is usually the biggest consequence of toothache, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible.

Toothache will never go away on its own – and the longer it’s ignored, the more likely the problem will worsen and be more costly to resolve.

Is toothache an indication of a bigger problem?

Toothache and throbbing tooth pain usually signal to a dentist a potential problem with the underlying tooth structure, like an infection or decay. It’s usually the first warning sign that alarms you to a problem with your tooth or oral health, and the situation will only worsen if you don’t get it treated immediately.

How to stop tooth pain

While waiting for your appointment, you can minimise tooth pain by taking over-the-counter medications, rinsing with salt water or using an ice pack to reduce swelling. Explore more at-home tips here

Same day tooth restorations to fix toothache

When you book an appointment with Mint Dental, we reserve the time to perform your treatment on the same day if possible. 

For example, remedial fixes can be great while you wait for a restoration to be made, but with our on-site technology, we’re able to provide many same-day (and cosmetic) solutions like composite bonding, dental fillings, crowns and root canals.

What your emergency fee covers
  • 3D imaging software allows us to see what’s really going on.
  • Appointments are faster and diagnoses are more accurate to get to the issue’s root.
  • Treatment is completed on the day for an additional cost.
  • Prescriptions and X-rays included
  • Patients can be seen within 2 hours of their call.
Is treatment painful?

Most restorations are carried out under local anaesthetic, but if you’re a nervous patient, let us know before your visit so we can accommodate you the right way to make you feel comfortable. Sedation is also offered for patients, who are extremely phobic and cannot receive procedures like tooth extraction.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Best dentist I’ve ever had! Have completed a year of Invisalign with Dr Patel and he has been so reassuring and kind throughout. From the reception staff to hygenists they really go above and beyond to make you feel looked after and special. I couldn’t recommend them enough!

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I've never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.

Excellent dental practice. A very smartly turned-out surgery. Staff are polite and very professional. I am impressed with the modern teeth scanning equipment. Dr Raj Patel will put you at ease.
