  Emergency Symptom Checker

If you are experiencing of the symptoms below, you may need Emergency Dental Treatment from one of practices in London where we offer same-day emergency appointments 7 days a week. Find a dental practice near me.

Dental pain can occur for a variety of reasons; it can be due to the sensitive part of the tooth being exposed because of gum recession, dental decay or if the nerve is involved and infected. If the pain is persistent, it would be recommended to seek dental advice

Teeth have the tendency to break when they are heavily decayed, filled or have old deteriorating fillings. Traumatic injury to the front teeth particularly can be a problem aesthetically and functionally.

Facial swellings can come about for a variety of reasons other than teeth such as blocked salivary glands or infected skin cysts. However, if there is associated tooth pain, swelling around the gum it is likely to be a dental problem. Facial swellings that have come about over a short period of time, are usually a sign of infection which may need antibiotic treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Crowns have a certain way to be re-inserted, they also need to be re-cemented with special dental cement. Arranging an appointment with us would be the best thing to do whilst storing the crown securely so it can be re-cemented back on.

Occasionally, if part of the tooth has broken off also, the tooth may need to be adjusted to

allow the crown to be re-seated. Occasionally due to break in the crown or the tooth itself, re-cementing may not be possible, but this will be discussed with you in person with the dentist.

The best thing to do is get in touch so you can seek advice from one our highly skilled dentists. Routine painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen are advised (if you are not allergic) and always read the label to ensure the maximum dose is not exceeded.

Toothache, can occur for a variety of reasons, this can be due to an infection, tooth decay or traumatic injury to the tooth. At Ruh dental we will assess the toothache symptoms and advise you on every different treatment option.  We will always involve you every step of the way when making a decision about the treatment.

A swelling is usually a sign of infection, and will require a thorough examination to identify why the swelling is present. Often there may be an abscess that needs to be drained and antibiotics prescribed. The most important part is to identify why it has occurred and treat the source of the problem

Repairing a denture is usually straightforward and can be assessed by one of our highly skilled dentists in order to get them repaired as soon as possible. Self repair and quick fixes are advised against as it can make the situation worse and more difficult to repair.

If a tooth has been completely knocked out of the mouth it is critical to replace it back into the socket it came from as soon as possible. Debris and dirt must be removed before this is done and it is important to avoid touching the root to protect the root surface. Alternatively place the tooth in a glass of cold milk and attend to the dentist as soon as possible.

Even if a tooth has been slightly knocked out of position, it is important to reposition it as it can affect the way the teeth can come together when biting, therefore we would always recommend that this is done by a dentist.

Tooth fractures can vary in extent from a minor chip, to complete fracture of a tooth at gum level. Whichever extent it is, we would strongly advise to attend to see a dentist as soon as possible in order to diagnose the problem and treat it accordingly. Some tooth fractures are not always so obvious and may need an x ray to confirm it.

Minor chips or cracks can be quite easily repaired on the same day, and  we would advise to see a dentist as soon as possible if you are receiving pain to hot and cold things, which could mean that the nerve is involved. In the meantime we would advise against eating anything on the tooth until it is assessed properly.
