Local Dentists Greenwich

Emergency dental treatment may be required by anyone, and our Dental Care Centre Practice is dedicated to providing prompt and efficient solutions. In case of any dental issues, just give us a call and request an emergency appointment. Our team of dentists will endeavour to alleviate your pain and discomfort while restoring your beautiful smile.

When there is an injury or a problem in the mouth, it may appear more severe than it really is. This is particularly the case when blood is present because it mixes with saliva and makes it seem like there is more blood. It is crucial to remain calm and contact your dentist immediately in the event of a dental emergency.

The course of action during an emergency dental appointment will vary depending on the specific issue at hand. A knocked-out tooth may be attempted to be reinserted by the dentist. In the case of an abscess, antibiotics and pain relief medication may be prescribed to alleviate the symptoms. The dentist’s expertise will be utilised to evaluate the injury or problem and administer the appropriate treatment.

Restore your Smile

When you go to an emergency dentist with a broken tooth or restoration, they will usually provide you with a temporary fix to restore your teeth’s function until a permanent solution is arranged. For instance, if you lose a crown, they will fit you with a temporary one until a new, customised crown is made for you.

When a tooth is knocked out, it is a common dental emergency. However, individuals often do not realise that their actions between the accident and the time they reach their dentist can determine if the tooth is successfully restored. If someone experiences a tooth being knocked out due to blunt force trauma to the face, they should retrieve the tooth and take it to their dentist. It is important not to touch the root and to place the tooth in a glass of milk or water to preserve it. If the tooth is whole, it may be possible to reattach it.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency simply call our practice today and we will be more than happy to help you.

Emergency Dental Treaments

  • Toothache: Floss your teeth and rinse your mouth with warm water to remove debris. Apply something cold to your cheek to help swelling. Don’t use painkiller gels near the sore tooth as they can burn the gums and cause further pain. Visit your dentist ASAP.
  • Chipped / Broken Teeth: Save any remaining pieces of teeth and rinse thoroughly. Rinse your mouth with warm water and, if necessary, apply gauze to the injured site to stop bleeding. A cold compress applied to your cheek can help swelling and soothe pain. Book an emergency dentist appointment.
  • Knocked-out teeth: Hold onto the crown (the bottom part of the tooth) and remove the dirt very carefully from the tooth root if there is any. Don’t scrub away any remaining tissue fragments. If possible, very gently place the tooth back in the socket and contact your dentist. If that proves too difficult, keep it bathed inside your cheek, with your saliva. In children, keep it in some milk.
  • Partially dislodged (extruded) tooth: Apply a cold compress to your cheek to ease the pain. Take over-the-counter pain medication if necessary. See your dentist ASAP.
  • Lost filling: As a temporary solution, use dental temporary filling material from a chemist or sugar-free chewing gum to bridge the cavity. Your dentist will replace your filling during your emergency appointment.
  • Lost crown: Book an emergency dentist appointment and bring the crown with you. If possible, apply dental cement/denture adhesive or toothpaste to the inner surface of the crown beforehand and try to place it back over the tooth.
  • Trapped object between teeth: Attempt to gently remove the object with dental floss. If the object cannot be taken out, contact your dentist right away.
  • Broken braces or wires: Rinse your mouth with salt water to keep your mouth clean and ease the pain. You may be able to push the wire back into place using a soft pencil eraser. Call your dentist if the wire won’t move back into place or is broken.
  • Loose brackets and bands: Loose braces can be temporarily reattached with orthodontic wax before your dentist fixes them. If a band becomes loose, save it and call your dentist to have it reattached.
  • Abscesses: Abscesses are serious infections that form under teeth and spread if left untreated. Book an emergency appointment with your dentist right away if you notice any painful swelling in your mouth. In the meantime, rinse your mouth with salt water to relieve pain and draw pus to the surface.
  • Soft tissue injuries: Injuries to the cheeks, gums, tongue and lips often bleed and require immediate dental treatment. In the meantime, ease the pain by rinsing your mouth with salt water. To control the bleeding, apply pressure to the site with gauze for 15-20 minutes. You can also hold a hot compress to your cheek for 5-10 minutes.
  • All emergency dental cases are promptly handled and treatment is provided on the very same day.
  • Each and every patient is given a customised treatment plan and a quotation.
  • We gladly accept nervous patients at our practice, suffering from any type of dental trauma.

I have excellent experience at this dental care centre. I have been attending since I came to live in London since 2009. Currently I'm going through a teeth straightening process which I'm so relieved is going well and I very appreciate all the support and transparency re costs that I'm receiving. I especially appreciate that this is an NHS dental practice.

My visit to the Dental Care Centre on Friday was a very happy experience, the surgery was very clean, receptionists very friendly and my dentist was very attentive.. I only had a check up, with work suggested for my follow up appointment, but I felt I was in good hands and i am someone who has an inbuilt fear of dentists.. recommended

I have been using this dental care centre since 2018 during my pregnancy and until now. I have always been looked after by front desk staff and dentist themselves. They have an excellent service.Now my son has had his 3rd appointment for dental check and being 3.5yrs old he's always been comfortable attending this clinic.Sad to see our dentist leave Dr Kumar, he's an excellent dentist towards our care. Hope he'll enjoy more of his family time.Met our new dentist last week and my son already created a bond with her.Thank you staff for your continuous service. I'm just lucky to have a good rapport with you all. 😀
