Dental Emergency Service
If you are an existing patient and have a dental emergency such as an accident or toothache, then please phone our practice during opening hours on 0208 995 1441 for an emergency appointment with one of our clinicians.
In the event of any of the following emergencies, you should make an appointment to come and see us as soon as you can. In the meantime.
Pain, bleeding or swelling following a dental procedure
anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen can help. If the pain and/or swelling is severe, attend a hospital A&E department straight away.
Rinsing with warm water and salt may help.
Broken or chipped tooth
try to keep the tooth as clean as possible. If you have any pain, then anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen should help.
Broken filling or crown
if you have the filling or crown, keep it safe and bring it to the practice with you at your appointment. In some instances, it may be possible to re-bond your crown if the underlying tooth is still sound and has not suffered any decay.
Broken or lost veneer
likewise, if you have the veneer, keep it safe and bring it with you to your appointment.
In the event of the following emergencies, you need to seek immediate dental or medical attention:
Severe pain not eased by painkillers and/or persistent bleeding
go straight to a hospital A&E department.
Tooth knocked out
you need to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible, ideally within one hour of the incident. Try to touch the tooth as little as possible and do not clean it. Place the tooth in a Tupperware box (with lid) filled with some milk until you can see the emergency dentist.
