Emergencies strike when we least expect and when faced with severe dental pain or a broken tooth you need fast access to professional help you can rely on.

In the case of a genuine dental emergency, Bhandal Dental Practice aims to see and provide initial treatment on the same day. Seeking emergency dental treatment can be essential to prevent further damage if you have been unfortunate enough to suffer a dental trauma, such as breaking a tooth or having a tooth knocked out. The following would be considered a dental emergency:

  • Toothache
  • Broken tooth
  • Lost filling or crown
  • Broken crown or bridge
  • Gum infection
  • Bleeding gums
  • Abscess
  • Swollen face
  • Wisdom tooth pain
  • Broken or lost denture

Our emergency service

If you suffer a dental emergency a member of the Blackheath Dental team will make you an urgent appointment on the same day wherever possible. At an emergency appointment, the dentist will take immediate action to reduce pain and put in place a temporary repair if needed.

In many cases, a dental emergency can be treated successfully at the initial appointment although a follow-up may be required to resolve the problem permanently. In the case of a dental emergency fast treatment can make all the difference. Don’t suffer in silence, get in touch with Blackheath Dental Practice for a fast solution.

The staff were excellent; fitted me for an emergency appointment within two hours, Dr Bhandal was excellent and told me what needed to be done, I would definitely recommend his practice.

Frequently asked questions

How can we help?

There are a few common dental emergencies that can occur. These include toothaches, chipped or cracked teeth, lost fillings, and gum injuries. If you have a toothache or other dental pain, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible. Toothaches might start as a small problem, but they can quickly become a much more serious problem.

If you are in pain, have a tooth that is loose or broken, or have lost a filling, you may be experiencing a dental emergency. If you are not sure whether or not your situation is a dental emergency, it is always best to err on the side of caution and see a dentist right away.

Wherever possible, we will try to see you on the same day if you are experiencing a dental emergency. During your appointment, the dentist will examine your mouth and teeth to determine the best course of treatment. The focus of an emergency appointment is to stop your pain and prevent further damage. You may need to arrange a follow-up appointment to complete your treatment.

There are a few things you can do to help prevent dental emergencies. First, be sure to brush and floss your teeth every day. This will help remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. Second, see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. This will help to prevent small issues from becoming more serious. Sometimes, a dental emergency occurs as a result of injury or trauma. In this case, there isn't much you can do to prevent it, but wearing appropriate protective equipment when taking part in sports and other leisure activities can help to protect your teeth and gums fro injury.

  • I recently underwent Invisalign and whitening with Dr Simran and Demi, and couldn’t be more satisfied with the results!From the initial consultation to final adjustments, their level of care and attention to detail was truly outstanding.Dr Simran’s expertise and professionalism were evident from the get go. She took time to thoroughly explain the treatment process and answered all my questions with patience and clarity. Demi was equally fantastic, keeping me updated with the next steps and making each visit a pleasant one.I am so pleased with the results!! I highly recommend :)

  • My third visit to Dr Dorsa today. I have advanced gum disease & needed deep cleaning sessions to minimise effects of this. My individual treatment plan clearly explained including how to improve dental hygiene at home. Dr Dorsa delivered treatment in a sensitive caring manner & today’s results show a marked improvement to my gum health. Very happy with service provided & can recommend.

  • My dentist retired, and his replacement has taken over some of his patients. He's a lovely young man called Suki and has made me comfortable and relaxed . I had a tooth break, and he has made an emergency repair. Need to go back in the new year for a replacement filling

  • I am posting on behalf of my mother who is really happy with the dentures she had made here by Dr Simrun. She had to pay privately but said it was worth every penny. My mother was very anxious. Hadn’t been to the dentist in over 40 years but she said she felt really comfortable with Dr Simrun who was patient and took her time with her. The dentist even stayed late to fit the dentures before my mother went on holiday. Overall really happy and my mother wanted to express her thanks again.
