How to relieve toothache and other common dental pain at home

We’re delighted that most of our dental practices across the UK are now open for different levels of face-to-face care. At the present time we’re prioritising emergency appointments and those with the greatest need. However, there may be some instances where we still can’t see you face-to-face, or you may need to wait a little longer for an appointment than usual. Therefore, in the meantime, we’ve created some useful tips to support you, if you're experiencing any dental pain at home.

For further help and advice

If you have pain which isn’t referenced in this article and is affecting your ability to sleep or concentrate, please get in touch with your local dentist. If you don’t have a dentist, or your practice is closed due to COVID-19 you can contact a Bupa Dental Care practice for emergency support. If you can manage your pain at home, we’d still encourage you to visit your local practice to get checked out once it reopens for routine dental care.

From Bupa Dental Care

The health, wellbeing and safety of our patients, their families and our people remain our top priority at Bupa Dental Care. We’d like to thank our patients for their understanding during the COVID-19 situation.

Once it is safe for our practices to re-open, we encourage you to get in touch and book an appointment. The latest status of our practices can be found at: COVID-19 Notice. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, find and contact your local Bupa Dental Care practice who can offer telephone support and advice to patients with urgent need. They can also direct you to the most appropriate support location if further care is needed.
