Emergency Dental Care

Pearl Dental offers emergency dental treatment appointments usually within 24 hours where possible.

If you’ve chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or an injury, it can be a traumatic experience. It's very important that you contact a dentist immediately. 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.

It’s very important that you keep the knocked out tooth 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 your dentist 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.

At our practice we offer a service for all dental emergencies from toothache to lost or broken crowns, and fillings to abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth and a swollen face. We can take care of your injuries to ensure you heal quicker and more effectively, so you avoid additional dental problems in the future.

In case of an emergency, please ring the practice number on 020 8769 8318.
