Emergency dentist for toothache, dental abscess, dental infections, and wisdom tooth extraction.

In dentistry, there are many situations that are considered a dental emergency, requiring the need to see an emergency dentist to resolve an acute or chronic dental pain or problem. During the emergency dental visit, from your symptoms and the dentist investigations, like X-rays and vitality tests, a diagnosis will be made. The dentist will then explain the alternative options of emergency dental treatment available immediately and the costs involved, allowing the patient to make an informed decision about what they wish to do.

There can be toothaches that require root canal treatment to relieve the dental pain and save the tooth. The emergency dentist will carry out Root Canal Treatment stage 1 or extirpation to relieve the pain as an urgent dental treatment with the patient returning later to complete the root canal treatment, stage 2, and other associated work needed. Alternatively, if the tooth is deemed not saveable, it can be removed by extraction to relieve the dental pain and infection, such as extraction of wisdom teeth or a badly decayed tooth. An emergency dental appointment offers same-day, immediate start of the emergency dental treatment needed to relieve pain, replace a lost filling, re-cement a lost crown or veneer, repair a cracked tooth, repair a broken denture or replace a lost denture on the same-day.

A nearby urgent dental care clinic that can offer an immediate dental emergency appointment with easy access, like Bayswater Dental Clinic in the centre of London, W26JE, is essential to relieve the severe acute pain associated with dental infections, abscess and other dental problems. Wisdom tooth pain with impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth or teeth that are badly broken down with large dental cavities and abscess, are typical examples of a need for tooth extraction to relieve pain and infection.

rating star icon LondonAs always the best treatment; on this occasion a visit to hygienist followed by dental check up. I have been going to Dr. Clarke since 1977 as he takes the greatest care of his dental patients. The work he has done has always been of the highest standard possible and he always offers intelligent solutions. Since moving to Wales I still return to Bayswater for my dental treatment. I did have to have emergency treatment in Wales and the dentist was highly respectful of the work done by Dr Clarke. In fact I think he was in awe!
Can't speak highly enough!

Costs of urgent dental care when visiting an emergency dentist.

It is understandable that people can be mindful of the costs involved when one visits an emergency dentist to have urgent dental treatment such as extractions of wisdom teeth or root canal treatment stage 1. Generally dental treatments can be expensive and the cost can be even more when visiting an emergency dentist, depending on the nature of treatment needed.

Here, at Bayswater Dental Clinic, located in the centre of London, W26JE, we have tried to be as clear and transparent with the cost involved when visiting an emergency dentist. Unlike many other dental clinics who provide emergency dental services, we have published the most common emergency dental fees, as listed in this page, so that our patients can be aware of the costs involved in advance of attending the clinic. Any treatment cost that is not listed already, it will be fully explained to our patients before any treatments is carried out.

Before any treatment, cost is explained & options are discussed.

rating star icon LondonGreat customer service and well-experienced dental surgeons. I was able to book a Saturday appointment after feeling a large bump on my gum on Monday. There was a longer-than usual wait time the day of the appointment and the receptionist was very accommodating and agreed to call me once the doctor was done. I live very close so went home for 15 minutes, hung my laundry, and got the call to come back.

It turned out I needed a tooth extraction as my last wisdom tooth was starting to break through. The dentist assured me he was a specialist in tooth extractions, and he is! Even the needle full of numbing agent was so fast I could barely feel it. The entire process, from me getting into the chair to them finishing the procedure (including taking x-rays) only took 45 minutes—the epitome of quick and painless at the dentist! They were also very accommodating and provided me OTC anti-inflammatory pills to save me a trip to Boots. I required no antibiotics, healed well, and my stitches fell out on schedule after 10 days. Highly recommend Bayswater Dental. :)

rating star icon LondonOwing to an upbringing in Scotland many years ago (pre Fluoride) and years of travelling as well as an injury to my jaw from a climbing accident, I have had to see well over 20 dentists in the course of my life. I have experience of dentists in several countries and work has included implants as well as other quite complex work. When I visited Dr Vahid at Bayswater, he drew up a comprehensive plan, which included some cosmetic work as I wanted to look my best for my marriage a few months ago. Not only did he explain every stage of the plan but he listened carefully to what I wanted or thought I wanted and adapted accordingly. His cosmetic work was superb and the other work that he did on dentistry that was failing was the best I have ever experienced. He has an engineering background as well as being a very experienced dentist; moreover, he explains extremely well and clearly works to the highest standard. The support staff are also very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend Dr Vahid as highly as possible.

Dental emergency for gum infection, gum swelling and gum pain.

The need to see an emergency dentist in a dental emergency as the result of pain is not just limited to toothaches and it can also be related to pain and infection associated with gum disease. This is more common in people suffering from periodontal disease, resulting in teeth becoming wobbly as the result of bone loss around the root of the teeth or in situations where, as the result of stress and less than perfect oral health, one can develop acute gum infection such as Necrotising Ulcerative Gingivitis (NUG). In these situations, the need to see an emergency dentist is paramount to relieve gum pain and start the dental emergency treatment as soon as possible in order to reduce the risk of further permanent and irreversible damage to the tissues supporting the teeth in periodontal disease or irreversible and permanent damage to the shape of the gum in NUG cases.

Gum swelling can also be the result of an abscess that is associated with the roots of a tooth for various reasons. In this case, the emergency dentist, to relieve pain and infection will provide root canal stage 1 emergency treatment or, if it is not possible to save the tooth, will extract the tooth.

Open 7 days, late evening appointments available.

Emergency dentist consultation cost £39
Small X-ray £12.50
Large X-ray £50
Cost of localised treatment of gum infection £195
Drainage of a dental abscess cost £195

These are some of the other examples of a need to see an emergency dentist in an urgent dental care clinic with a highly competent emergency dental team that is conveniently located near you with easy access and a good reputation such as Bayswater Dental Clinic in the centre of London, W26JE.

Dental emergency for difficult or wisdom tooth extraction with Specialist Oral Surgeon.

There are some tooth extractions that can be difficult and require surgical removal. In these cases it is best to have the tooth removed by an experienced Specialist Oral Surgeon. For this reason, many dentists refer their patient to specialist oral surgeons for removal of painful, infected and impacted wisdom teeth, badly broken down and decayed teeth, teeth with long and curved roots or patients that have a compromised medical history. We offer routine and emergency dental extractions for all teeth including wisdom teeth extractions. We have a highly experienced and caring Specialist Oral Surgeon available all day on Saturdays and Sundays for emergency and routine dental care. The Specialist Oral surgeon performs the most difficult extractions with ease, with least amount of inconvenience to our patients following years of experience working in hospitals and the skills he has acquired. He is particularly known for performing most difficult extractions such as wisdom teeth extractions in the least invasive ways. The availability of our Specialist Oral Surgeon on weekends allows performing not only emergency dental extractions of infected and painful teeth, but also routine extractions or other dental emergency treatments which is very convenient for our patients. Nervous patients are welcome.

Emergency dentist for express denture repair or same-day dentures.

For many patients, one of the most challenging dental emergencies is to find an emergency dentist that can offer an immediate or same-day denture repair or replacement. The specific challenge is that for a same day service, the help of a dental laboratory and lab technicians is required to produce a same-day replacement denture. At Bayswater Dental Clinic, based in the centre of London, W26JE, we are pleased to offer this service as we have dedicated dental labs and their technicians who are available 7 days a week. When needed, the technician attends the urgent dental care clinic on the same day which makes it a possibility to produce the emergency same-day denture. This dental emergency service is available for making a brand-new same-day denture or express repair of a broken denture.

On some occasion, depending on the type of material used or the number of teeth that are being replaced by the same-day emergency denture, technically it may not be possible to make the express denture on the same day in the laboratory. Patient must be aware of the technical laboratory limitations that can cause making a functional and high quality express denture not possible on the same day. In these situations, however, we can guarantee that the express denture will be produced in the fastest possible way to address our patient's needs.

Open 7 days, late evening appointments available.

What Is a Dental Emergency and how does it differ from a Dental Check-up?

An emergency dental appointment is made when, as the result of a specific dental problem, immediate action or treatment is required. This differs from a routine dental appointment that is carried out every 6-9 months, consisting of examining the soft tissues, periodontal condition and the teeth. Typically, no treatment other than routine cleaning is carried out during dental examinations.

Some Dental Emergency Symptoms and possible Treatments.

Cracked or Broken Tooth: If your tooth is broken, it can be superficial in the enamel of the tooth which has no sensation and therefore is not painful. However, it can be sharp and causing trauma to the lips, tongue or the cheeks. If the broken section extends to the inter dentine level, it can be very sensitive to touch or temperature. Urgent dental care and emergency dentist appointment is needed. If the broken section extends to the nerve chamber of the tooth, known as the Pulp, then the situation is much more severe and to save the tooth, if deemed restorable, root canal treatment is needed with core and cuspal coverage or crown. If deemed not restorable, then an extraction is needed.

Pain with heavily restored teeth such as teeth with deep fillings or crowns: sometimes in a heavily restored tooth, with passage of time, or immediately after a deep filling, the nerve of the tooth develops irreversible pulpitis of necrotises. In the first situation, there is an acute pain with varying severity (throbbing). With the latter situation, there is a chronic background pain with swelling and pain on biting for example. In either case, an emergency dental appointment is needed with initiating root canal treatment or an alternative option of extraction.

Bleeding with soft tissues after a trauma or after tooth extraction: If there is continuous bleeding after a recent extraction or bleeding after laceration of soft tissues following a trauma, apply cold compress where possible or bite on a damp gauze on the tooth socket and apply pressure by gentle biting or hand pressure where there has been laceration to stop the bleeding. If bleeding after extraction does not stop after applying pressure or when there has been trauma, an emergency dentist should be seen immediately.
