A dental emergency can be a frightening and upsetting experience. At The Cosmetic Dental Gallery, we class anything that causes you pain or trauma to your teeth, gums or mouth as a dental emergency.
The most common dental emergencies include:
Whatever your dental emergency, we aim to see patients from Greenwich, West India Quay, Stratford, Canada Water and Canning Town as quickly as possible so please call us as soon as you can.
We provide dental care appointments on evenings and weekends, including Sundays by prior arrangement. We keep slots especially for emergency dental appointments every day to ensure our patients receive our premium service whenever they need it.
The Cosmetic Dental Gallery has also put in place an out of hours emergency dental system for our registered patients.
For out of hours dental emergencies please call – 07435 884 049.
If you are a registered patient and need to see an emergency dentist, please try to call before 10am during normal surgery hours or as soon as you can.
If you are not a registered patient, but still need an emergency dental appointment in Greenwich, please call during our normal opening hours and we will endeavour to see you as soon as possible.
Some of the more common dental emergencies that we see with patients from Greenwich, Canada Water, Canning Town, Stratford and West India Quay are listed below. Here is some advice to ease your pain whilst you wait to see the emergency dentist.
A nagging toothache can be excruciating. Whilst you wait for your emergency dental appointment, you can take paracetamol for the pain and rinse your mouth in salty water to ease the pain.
A knocked-out tooth is extremely distressing. If you can save the lost tooth, prevent it from drying out by keeping it safe in your mouth or in a cup of cold milk and take it with you to see the emergency dentist in Greenwich. Don’t touch the roots of the tooth, only hold the tooth by the crown. The success of re-inserting a knocked-out tooth is time critical, so call us as at The Cosmetic Dental Gallery as soon as you can.
When pus builds up in your tooth, gum or jaw caused by a bacterial infection, it can be extremely painful. If this spreads to other parts of your body, it can be dangerous. Whilst you are waiting for your dental emergency appointment, take paracetamol for the pain and rinse your mouth in salty water to ease any swelling.
