Similarly to your normal teeth, tooth restorations such as dental implants, fillings and crowns can become damaged or fall out. Book an appointment with our emergency dentist in London and we can repair these quickly so it won’t be long before we can restore the functionality of your mouth.
Having gaps in your teeth can lead to a number of problems with your mouth. Your other teeth may begin to shift to fill the gaps and may even become loose, and you may notice increased sensitivity when eating due to chewing putting more pressure on your remaining teeth. Your gums will also be exposed and prone to infection where the tooth has been dislodged.
A broken filling may not seem as serious as one that is missing, but the problems that a broken tooth can cause are more than just cosmetic. Broken teeth can become more fragile as you bite and chew, and may be harder to clean thoroughly, making you more susceptible to future diseases.
Here at Crescent Lodge Dental Practice we can offer a same day appointment with our emergency dentist in London weekdays 8am-8pm and Saturdays 9am-5pm. We can also offer quick treatments such as replacing fillings in the same appointment and next day denture repairs, so you won’t have to wait long to restore your smile.
If your filling has fallen out, it’s best to book an appointment with our emergency dentists in London as soon as possible. Leaving the area exposed can lead to further issues such as increased sensitivity and further decay. Whilst you are waiting to see the dentist, try and keep the area as clean as possible and avoid chewy or crunchy foods.
If your dental crown breaks or is missing and you are in pain or bleeding from the area it’s best to book to see an emergency dentist in London. Depending on the severity of the damage, your dentist will be able to repair or replace the broken crown.
Of course! Dental implants are a fantastic long-term solution to tooth loss, however, occasionally accidents happen. Applying too much pressure to the area, or using your teeth to open bottles or tear off clothes labels may damage your dental implant. Usually, this is just the crown part (the part that looks like a tooth) which can be fixed or replaced easily. However, if the implant root is damaged you may need revisionary work which could take considerably longer. Your emergency dentist in London will be able to assess the severity of the damage and the treatment required during your appointment.
