At Dulwich Dental Office, our emergency dentist in London is available during clinic hours to meet your urgent needs. Dental emergencies can be very painful and so we offer out-of-hours service because we know such traumas can arrive at any moment. We provide immediate treatment for issues ranging from broken or chipped teeth, to toothaches or swelling.

Our team of highly qualified dental professionals carry out the emergency dental treatments. Our experts leave nothing to chance when it comes to securing the health of your teeth and the gums. As a thoroughly patient-centric practice, we facilitate same-day appointments when available through online booking. Alternatively, you can phone the practice straight away and we will take up your case as soon as possible.

  • Toothache: Floss your teeth and rinse your mouth with warm water to remove debris. Apply a cold compress 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. See your dentist as soon as possible.
  • 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 very carefully the dirt, if any, from the tooth root. Don’t scrub away any remaining tissue fragments. If possible, very gently place the tooth back in the socket and contact your dentist.Or if that is too difficult, keep it bathed inside your cheek, so your saliva bathes it. In children, keep it in some milk.
  • Partially dislodged (extruded) tooth: Apply a cold compress to your cheek to ease pain. Take over-the-counter pain medication if necessary. See your dentist as soon as possible.
  • 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 at your emergency appointment.
  • Lost crown: Book an emergency dentist appointment and bring the crown with you. If possible beforehand, you can apply dental cement/denture adhesive or toothpaste to the inner surface of the crown 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 can’t 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 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 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.
  • Every patient is given a customised treatment plan and quotation.
  • We gladly accept nervous patients at our practice, suffering from any type of dental trauma.

Testimonials

The Dentist, Hygienist, Dental Nurses & Especially the Receptionist staff are very Polite, Friendly & most importantly they try to fit you in quickly in the event of an emergency. Recently I couldn’t get the time of work for an emergency appointment for my 81 year old Mum so I called an Uber for her & told the receptionist this. The young Black Lady called me when she ordered & place my Mother in a cab – so she went above & beyond her duties with a lot of Customer Care & Respect for my Mother- Thank You so much

Vince A.

Great service! Im usually so nervous when coming in to the dentist but my dentist was so pleasant and polite ! Dulwich Dental Office will definitely be my dentist for life

Tomike O.

I lost my two front teeth whilst at school and had complications for years. Unfortunately I ended up needing an implant – which I had been avoiding! I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Patel was fantastic and guided me through each stage. He was always contactable to answer any queries or concerns. Very happy with the end result and would reccomend.

Tom O.

Registered and seen on the NHS within 2 weeks – amazing. Really friendly staff, would definitely recommend

Tom C.

I have recently finished an invisalign program with Pooja at dulwich dental office and couldn’t be happier. The treatment was easy and pain free and the results are great. Pooja’s experience and friendliness made me feel at ease throughout. I would 100% recommend for anyone considering similar treatment.

Toby B.

Dentist Pooja Pillay is excellent and was very patient with me as I I took a long time (years!) deciding whether or not to take the plunge and have Invisalign to straighten my teeth. It didn’t take too long and was easier than I thought it would be. Pooja kept a close eye on how it was all progressing and we even went a bit longer with it just to really perfect the result. I’m delighted with the outcome. Everything was included in the price, even the extra aligners and appointments when we decided to go on a bit longer. All staff at the practice have been excellent. Highly recommend.

Susie F.

I had my Invisaligns done by Dr Pillay and she really took the time to make sure my teeth are lovely and straight. She has always been available with any queries or follow up treatment I needed – and made me feel well looked after from the beginning and end of the treatment. I really recommend seeing her if you want to get Invisaligns done.

Stella C.

I am undergoing a course of Invisalign treatment with Dulwich Dental Office and I am so pleased with the results, even at this early stage. It is great that I can take the braces out to eat and clean my teeth. I am looking forward to the end result.

Sienna M.

The team are great. Friendly, reliable and kept my teeth on the ‘straight n’ narrow’ for years

Sarwar K.

I’ve been having implant treatment with Sanjay for almost a year and he has been great through the whole process as I am not fond of dentists. Today was the final session and the crowns were fitted. I’m really pleased with the work and they look and feel great and are subtle as you can see from the attached pic I just took. I’m more than happy to recommend him and his work!
