    When dental pain gets unbearable

    Whether it’s a constant, dull throb or sharp, excruciating discomfort, dental pain can quickly become unbearable.

    We understand the impact that dental pain can have on your day-to-day life, leaving you unable to eat, work or sleep because you are distracted by the discomfort you are experiencing. If your toothache isn’t relieved by over-the-counter medications and is becoming unbearable, an emergency appointment at our Crouch End dental practice could be the solution you need.  

    Your emergency situation will be assessed by our knowledgeable dental team over the phone. Then, you’ll either be invited in to see us the same day or in the shortest available time frame, so that we can get you out of pain as quickly as possible. If you are experiencing dental pain, don’t delay, contact us by calling 020 8348 1480 today.

    What is a dental emergency?

    Not sure whether your dental problem constitutes an emergency? Here’s what you need to know.

    Knowing what a dental emergency is and what isn’t can make the difference when it comes to saving a tooth and keeping your smile intact. The following at the most common signs that emergency dental care is required:

    Knocked-out teeth are extremely common, especially among children. The good news is that with urgent treatment, it may be possible to reimplant it.  

    If you are experiencing any of the issues listed above, contact us now to schedule your emergency appointment.

    Emergency care at home

    There are things that you can do at home to help in a dental emergency, before you come in to see our team.

    These include taking over-the counter pain relief such as anti-inflammatory medications to help alleviate pain and swelling, using warm or cold compresses against the side of your face and trying to rest as much as possible. Don’t take aspirin as it contains blood-thinning ingredients that could make your condition worse. 

    Broken tooth? Don’t panic

    Teeth may be strong, but they aren’t totally infallible. Luckily, a broken tooth can nearly always be repaired.

    If your tooth has chipped, cracked or broken, pick up any pieces that have broken off and wrap them in a clean, damp cloth so that you can take them to your emergency dental appointment. Then call our team and explain the situation, and we will get you in to repair your tooth as quickly as possible. 

    Lost a tooth? Here’s how to preserve it

    If you’ve lost a permanent tooth but it is healthy and in good condition, there is a chance that it could be re-implanted if you handle the situation correctly.

    If you can find your missing tooth, pick it up carefully but not by the root as this needs to be kept intact if the tooth is to be re-implanted. Rinse it in lukewarm salt water, and either place it between your cheek and jaw to keep it moist or in a small container of milk. Then contact our emergency dental team to ask about an urgent appointment.
