When you come to our North London dental practice for an emergency appointment, your dentist’s first priority will be to get you out of pain.

What your North London emergency dentist may do

Treatment from an emergency dentist depends on the nature of your condition. Below are some common dental emergencies, along with what your North London emergency dentist may do. . .

Unbearable toothache

There are numerous causes of toothache, and your treatment will depend on the cause. Pain is the body’s indicator that something isn’t right, so you should always see a dentist for toothache. If it is unbearable it may require an emergency appointment.

Toothache may be caused by untreated decay or gum disease, a dental abscess, or problems with teeth erupting (in adults, this is usually the wisdom teeth). After getting you out of pain, your dentist will treat the underlying condition.

Broken teeth

Injuries to the face and head often result in broken teeth. Sometimes teeth are also broken by biting something very hard, or by using your teeth for something other than which they are intended (such as opening a bottle – which you should never do with your mouth). Depending on where the broken tooth is and how badly damaged it is, your North London dentist may repair it with a crown, a white filling, composite bonding, or a porcelain veneer.
