When you have problems with your teeth, it can be frustrating to have to wait for an appointment. If you’re in pain too, waiting might not really be an option for you, and we believe that it is incredibly important that you can get the care that you need exactly when you need it.
We offer same-day service for emergencies, meaning that you can have your issues seen to as soon as possible.
Our team are sympathetic to the fact that dental emergencies don’t always occur during normal working hours, and this means that we are relatively flexible. We keep our surgery open until late at night four days each week, so that you can be sure that you have somewhere to go whenever you are in pain, or when you have had some other kind of dental accident.
We have a dentist on call for any emergencies that occur out of these hours, which means that there really is no time when you would need to be completely without dental care at all.
There are various reasons that you might choose to visit an emergency dentist, rather than wait for an appointment like you might choose to with minor issues. Emergency issues that we are willing to treat include:
If you’ve had a tooth knocked out for whatever reason, time is of the essence when it comes to getting the dental treatment that you need. To put it simply, the sooner you come to see us, the more likely it is that we will be able to save your tooth.
Depending on how it has been lost, you may be able to replant the tooth yourself and hold it in place while you get to our surgery. You should only ever try to do this if your tooth and socket are absolutely clean.
There are various reasons for toothache, and varying severities too. You should try to treat your toothache with painkillers and book a dental appointment, however, if you find that the pain is completely unmanageable, then this is when you should get in touch with us to book an appointment. We can give you pain relief there and then, and can carry out any treatment that might be needed, or provide advice on further treatment.
Of course, the action that we take will very much depend on what is causing the pain in the first place.
If you have broken a tooth or denture, you should contact us as soon as possible. Our team can replace a denture or shattered tooth in less than 48 hours, which means that you don’t have to suffer for a long period of time. If your denture needs to be repaired as we feel that it is able to be fixed, we can also do this for you within a period of 48 hours.
Unlike many dental surgeries, we will accept patients from any surgery who need emergency care. This means that whenever you are in the area, you will know that you have a team available to you who can help you with everything that you need. This should put your mind at ease for any dental issues that occur in the future.
If you have an emergency and need to see our dentist, you should contact us on 020 7485 3711. If it is during opening hours, you are of course welcome to simply walk in and state that you need to see our emergency dentist. Our team will do everything in our power to solve your issue as quickly and painlessly as we possibly can.
