EMERGENCY DENTISTRY FROM ST. GEORGE'S ROAD DENTAL PRACTICE
A chipped or broken tooth can be a painful and traumatic experience, and it’s very important that you see a dentist immediately, even if the tooth is just slightly chipped.
If you have knocked out a tooth or several teeth, the sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better because there is a chance that the teeth could be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.
If you have lost a tooth or teeth, please ensure that you keep the knocked out tooth/teeth clean and avoid handling the root. In some cases you may be able to put the tooth back into the socket by biting down on a clean paper towel for around 15-20 minutes.
If you have a chipped tooth then we may be able to smooth down the uneven edge and replace the missing part with a tooth-coloured filling. If you break a back molar then this may have to be replaced with a crown.
Whether you are an existing or new patient, we are happy to help you. We offer a same day service for all dental emergencies from toothache to lost or broken crowns, chipped teeth and fillings to abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth and a swollen face.
If you require an emergency appointment, please get in touch with us immediately.
