For most of us, a quick trip to the dentist for a six-month check-up is enough. But if you have an emergency and need dental treatment in London in a hurry, here’s a quick guide to booking your appointment with us.
What is a dental emergency?
Dental problems relating to an accident or injury will require immediate attention and you may need to go to the hospital. But other dental damage will require an emergency appointment with your dentist including:
- Loss of a tooth
- Cracked or fractured teeth
- Pain or bleeding after dental surgery
- Flu-like symptoms related to an abscess
- A tooth that has been knocked loose or out of alignment
If you feel you need treatment as soon as possible contact us and we’ll book you in fast for an initial assessment.
Do I need an emergency dentist?
Although some situations can feel like an emergency, you won’t need to see an emergency dentist if you’ve:
- Lost a crown or filling
- Broken your braces
- Lost a tooth veneer
- There’s no pain or bleeding
However, we do recommend you make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible to get the treatment you need and prevent tooth pain.
