Getting you back on track after a dental emergency

Dental pain can be extremely challenging to endure, and intense pain that stops you from going about your day or that wakes you up at night is worth getting in touch over.

Some other reasons to contact us for emergency care include:

Damaged dentures, crowns, bridgework or braces

Should your bridges, dentures or crowns become badly damaged, this may constitute a dental emergency, especially if the damage is extensive. The same goes for braces. Should these become damaged, they could cause damage to the soft tissues in your mouth, and they will also inhibit your chewing and speaking ability.

Similarly, if you have lost your Invisalign® aligners, these will need to be replaced as soon as possible to avoid jeopardising the long-term success of treatment.

Bleeding that worsens/does not stop

If a blow to the mouth has caused uninterrupted bleeding, this is a reason to contact us for an emergency appointment.

Wisdom teeth are impacted

Intense wisdom tooth pain (often accompanied by a bad taste in your mouth) indicates that the teeth have become impacted. In some cases, we may be able to simply provide antibiotics to treat an infection in the area. However, if the teeth are seriously impacted, they will need to be taken out.

Swelling in the jaw

Swelling in the jaw area could indicate a serious dental infection (an abscess) or a blocked salivary gland. Both of these issues are classed as emergencies.

*If swelling is accompanied by breathing difficulties, please contact 999 right away.


What emergency dental treatment might I require?

Common treatments we may suggest and provide following an emergency dentist appointment include:

  • An extraction (if the tooth has been knocked out and damaged or a dental infection is irrevocable).
  • Ongoing periodontal treatment.
  • Fillings and crowns.
  • Prescription of antibiotics.
  • Painkillers.

If it isn’t possible to save your tooth, we can advise you on your next steps for replacing the vacant socket left behind after an extraction (this isn’t applicable to wisdom tooth removal).

We may recommend an implant consultation so you can find out about the benefits of our most long-term tooth replacement solution.
