In the event of dental accidents

If possible, bring the broken piece of tooth in an unsoiled condition; ideally slightly moist (e.g. in milk). Do not attempt to clean the tooth. In case of bleeding, hold a clean handkerchief firmly against the wound. If to hand: Bring insurance documents and vaccination records!

Emergency treatment

The emergency dentist will implement measures to reduce pain, apply interim solutions and prevent further blood loss. Emergencies in the field of jawbone and facial surgery will be transferred to the Winterthur virtual centre for jawbone and facial surgery. This centre is a close network of doctors specialising in jawbone and facial surgery, who practice in the Winterthur area.

Treatment of pain

In case of severe toothache, do not wait until the out of hours service. Call during practice opening times and arrange an appointment. Out with daytime service hours, you can obtain pain relief from the emergency pharmacist at the station tel. 052 269 12 00.

Billing

A payment in cash will be required in the event of an emergency treatment. In the case of dental accidents, the accident insurer will cover the costs so please bring your certificate of insurance with you.
