A dental emergency can be a worrying time, especially if an accident or trauma was involved. Dental emergencies are typically classified as having:
-Severe dental pain
-A loose or lost tooth
-Infection (such as abscess), especially with swelling or a fever
-Bleeding from the mouth
“Very good service and friendly staff from receptionist to the dentist all lovely people.”
During emergency dental treatment, our London dentists can help diagnose the problem, stabilise it and treat any associated pain. Emergency treatment could be something as simple as a dental assessment with x-rays and advice, or could be more thorough, such as an extraction. At Crescent Lodge Dental Practice, in London, we can also prescribe antibiotics and pain-relief, or refer you to a specialist.
Even if you’re not a patient of ours, we may well be able to help. If you’re not sure whether you have a dental emergency, please call our London dental practice or contact the NHS 111 service. This service can also offer you advice or suggest pain relief if needed. Please note that a GP isn’t able to offer emergency or out-of-hours dental care.
Usually, dental problems such as lost crowns or fillings, or chipped teeth, wouldn’t be an emergency unless there was pain. If you’re in any doubt, get in touch with our expert dentists here in London for more information.
Private fees differ from NHS treatment, which uses tiers to categorise costings. Fees at our Clapham Common dental practice in London, start at £70 and we can put together a treatment plan afterwards to help manage these.
Because lots of emergencies can be a result of accident or injury, it’s always a good idea to wear adequate protection during sports, such as a helmet or mouth guard. Regular dental appointments can also help – our dentists here in London could identify and treat an infection in its early stages, or if you have a chipped or cracked tooth, we could repair it before it becomes a problem. Loose crowns and fillings can also cause issues down the line, and with frequent dental check-ups, we can keep an eye on these and replace them as and when required to avoid emergency dental care.
