What's Your Dental Emergency?

Toothache may be due to multiple reasons and may affect a single tooth through to multiple teeth, causing severe jaw pain.
If you symptoms are mild we would advise to still have your toothache checked in order for your symptoms and pain from worsening.

Inflammation is one of the causes of toothache and occurs when the dental pulp become inflamed. The causes can be multiple and range from tooth decay, damaged/lost fillings, problems with dental implants/ crowns or a bacterial infection.

Other reasons for toothache include

  • Injury of your jaw joint (TMJ – temporomandibular joint)
  • Inflammation within your sinuses
  • Wisdom teeth problem including impacted wisdom teeth
  • Lost or damaged dental implants / crowns

We will provide a full examination to look at the cause of your tooth pain, including where required taking X-ray/s of the affected area.

Once the cause is identified we will provide you with a clear dental plan which may include for example removal of the affected tooth, replacement of a filling, root canal treatment etc.

Antibiotics may also be prescribed.

Broken or chipped teeth are very common in dental emergencies and is something we can definitely help with.

Where possible the broken segment of the tooth should be kept cool and placed in a clean container and the tooth covered in your own saliva or milk. We will examine the broken tooth segment to see whether it can be re-attached back onto the tooth it has come from.

Where you have broken or damaged one of your molars we will examine you to see whether the tooth can be repaired using a filling or dental crown.

Depending on the severity of the dental damage the other options include:

  • Composite bonding, where the broken tooth is re-built to look as natural as possible to the original tooth.
  • Dental veneers which are placed over the surface of the damaged tooth restoring your full smile

All options and treatment plans will be discussed with you.

What is an Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance used to move front teeth into a straighter position. It can also be used to prepare the teeth for further treatments, such as veneers or dental bonding.

How does the Inman Aligner Work?

Two aligner bows that are powered by nickel titanium coil springs provide opposing forces that help move the teeth into the desired position. The aligner bow placed on the back portion of the front teeth gently pushes forward, while a pulling motion is made by the bow placed on the outer part of the teeth. The gentle forces effectively straighten teeth over a large range of movement, with the treatment completed in six to 18 weeks (depending on the case).

An Inman Aligner treatment offers a much faster way to straighten front teeth. Perfectly aligned teeth can now be achieved in just a few short weeks, instead of several years. In general, lower front teeth are straightened faster compared the upper arch of teeth.

Advantages of an Inman Aligner Treatment

  • Effective Teeth Straightening – Front teeth problems involving crowding and protrusion are solved efficiently with an Inman Aligner treatment.
  • Fast Orthodontic Improvement – Front teeth can be straightened in an average of six to 18 weeks, with results varying depending on the degree of teeth straightening involved.
  • Convenient – The Inman Aligner can easily be removed when needed, such as during mealtimes or before brushing the teeth

A root canal procedure may be necessary if a tooth is injured or decayed. This may cause severe dental pain as the dental pulp may be damaged leading to infection.

A root canal procedure preserves your original tooth and prevents the spread of infection.

Our specialist dentist (endodontist) will advise you on the best procedure to preserve your tooth ans the steps that would be taken during the root canal procedure.

The procedure can be complex depending on your needs and is carried out in very hygienic conditions to avoid any possible spread of infection.

The procedure involves cleaning the root, disinfecting and then finally, filling the root cavity with the root canal with gutta-percha (a permanent filling material)

Losing a tooth can be traumatic and can occur after an accident, injury or even eating hard food. The lost tooth may be your original tooth or could also be a damaged dental implant.


Lost Tooth
If your tooth is lost due to trauma, the dentist may be able to re-implant the tooth. It is important to handle the tooth carefully and not touch the root. The tooth should ideally be placed in a clean container with your own saliva or with cold milk. Phone us straight away and we will ensure you are seen as soon as possible.

If the dentist is unable to re-implant your tooth, we will offer alternative options which may include a dental implant or a dental bridge.

Our dentists will go through all the lost tooth implant options on the day of your visit.

Call us on 020 7242 0088 to book your appointment.

A damaged or lost filling may lead to dental pain and infection. Out dental team can very quickly provide the right treatment to get your tooth or teeth filled and also provide antibiotics if an infection has set in.


We offer mercury free composite white fillings – so you no longer have to have ‘silver fillings’. White fillings provide a much nicer appearance and avoids any metallic taste that some patients have with metal amalgam fillings.
