General advice for dental pain
No one deserves to experience dental pain. If you are suffering from pain right now, there are two things you can do:
Painful tooth/teeth – Most short term dental pain can be treated with analgesics, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen (NB – please ensure these do not interfere with other medications that you may be taking). If the pain is particularly severe, ibuprofen and paracetamol can be taken in combination, but do not exceed the stated dose and ideally contact us.
To reduce swelling and, potentially, minimise the pain gently apply an ice pack to the affected area and contact the practice. Should the swelling start to affect the neck area, you should urgently attend Accident and Emergency.
Wisdom tooth pain – Where there is apparent swelling of the gum overlying or around the tooth, a warm salt water rinse (two teaspoons of salt in a full mug of warm water) should be held in the mouth for thirty seconds over the affected area and then gently rinsed out. This should be repeated a few times a day. Be careful not to swallow the rinse.

Throughout the 13 years I have attended ConfiDental Care, I have experienced a consistency in service and care better than any other dental surgery I have visited. As someone who is nervous when is comes to dentists – through a very bad experience as a young boy – I find the relaxed and professional manner of my present dentist very calming. I am at ease whenever I attend the surgery. Congratulations to Dr Faiz for putting together such an excellent team and in setting such a high standard of dental care.
I have attended Confidental Care since November 1998 and have always received excellent advice and treatment from Dr Faiz and his team. Thank you all for your care.
We have been attending the ConfiDental Care surgery since 2003 under the expert care of Dr. Khalid Faiz and his team. His professionalism is of the highest order. In 2008 one of us underwent a complicated implant procedure which involved replacing 4 front teeth on the lower jaw. These implants were a perfect match to the adjacent teeth mainly due to the excellent laboratory technicians employed by the surgery. “It brought my smile back”
I have been a patient of Dr Faiz at ConfiDental Care since 1998. During this time I have received excellent care, and when a procedure is necessary it is always fully explained and any questions answered. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and I would not hesitate in recommending ConfiDental Care to anyone, in fact I already have!
My dentist at ConfiDental Care, Dr Richard Brown, has always been very friendly, welcoming and informative when explaining various options of treatment. The thought of a visit to the dentist has never been traumatic for any of us, including the children! We’re all very happy with the service we receive from all the staff at the surgery and highly recommend ConfiDental Care to anyone looking to take up their services.
The care I have received from Dr. Faiz and his team has been over and above the norm. He has always known of my insecurity in “the chair” but puts me at ease, explains each step of the treatment process and reassures me. I have every confidence in him and trust his judgement implicitly. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him as a dentist to anyone who is lucky enough to join the practice.
Highly recommend. Professional service and friendly staff. New refurbishment to a high standard. Thank you for your help and making me feel safe.
Very happy with the service, friendly staff. The dentist helped me to make the right decision for my smile. Would definitely recommend!
I began to visit ConfiDental Care about a year ago where I was treated by Dr Faiz, and I will never look back. The dentists and the rest of the staff are welcoming, always made me feel at ease and the work on my teeth was done so effortlessly! I would highly recommend the clinic.
Highly recommend. Great dentists and staff!
ConfiDental Care! Its all in the name.
Thank you Team. See you soon.
