The unexpected can happen to anyone. It can be a painful and stressful experience and all you want is to solve it.
At the neem tree, we pay special attention to these occasions and try to be as flexible as possible. In the event of an emergency outside of our scheduled working hours please telephone our dental practice where you will be able to speak to a dental professional and book an emergency dental appointment.
You may not see your usual neem tree dentist but we will aim to deal with the immediate problem, put you at ease and ensure you get out of pain.
For emergencies, during or even outside practice hours, the possibility to call the practice directly or book an emergency dental appointment online is available to you.
Same day dental appointments are offered to those who are suffering, our aim is to ensure that you leave the dental practice pain-free. If we are unable to relieve you from pain on the same day, advice will be given and treatment will be provided to relieve pain over the next few days.
To arrange an urgent or out of hours emergency dental appointment, call one of our practices in Wandsworth or Surrey to book your emergency appointment today. Sunday appointments are available for special situations so please do not hesitate to ask.
If you are experiencing toothache, you should first of all rinse your mouth out with warm water. If there is food stuck between teeth or gums causing irritation, use dental floss to remove it. You can also use a cold compress on the outside of your mouth if you experience any swelling.
Do not use painkillers, such as aspirin, on the gum itself as this can burn the tissue.

It is important to save any chips or fragments you can.

Firstly, save the tooth if possible. You should rinse the lost tooth with water by holding the tooth by the crown (the crown is the part of the tooth that is exposed in the mouth). Rinse both the crown and the roots.
Keep the tooth safe in a container of milk. If you do not have milk, you can use a cup of water with a pinch of salt.
The best chance of having a tooth replaced is to see your dentist within 1 hour.
Book an emergency dental appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, use a cold compress on the outside of the mouth over the affected area. Use over-the-counter painkillers if the pain is excessive.
Use dental floss to try to remove the object yourself. Do not use anything sharp to try to remove the object, sharp objects can scratch the gums or even the surface of the tooth.
If the object cannot be removed at home, book an appointment with your dentist.
See your dentist as soon as possible.
In the meantime, you can use over-the-counter dental cement to plug the hole. If you cannot get hold of dental cement, sugarless gum can also be used as a temporary filling. Do not use sugar-filled gum as this will cause pain.
Make an emergency dental appointment and make sure to bring the lost crown with you.
In the meantime, especially if you are in pain, dip a cotton swab in clove oil and apply to the affected area. Clove oil can be purchased at a pharmacy or in most supermarkets.
Try to place the crown back on to the tooth. Use something such as dental cement, denture adhesive or toothpaste on the inside of the crown to help keep it in place temporarily. Never use glue!
Book an emergency appointment with your dentist or orthodontist.
If the wire is poking you into the cheek, gums or tongue, move the wire into a different position where it does not cause discomfort. Use something like the rubber/eraser end of a pencil to move the wire. If you cannot reposition the wire for any reason, cover the sharp end with gauze, a small cotton ball or, if possible, orthodontic wax.
Do not try to cut the wire yourself with any implements.
Book an appointment with your dentist or orthodontist as soon as possible.
Use orthodontic wax to reattach any loose braces, or create a cushion by placing the wax over the brace.
Save any loose bands if possible.

Abscesses occur when the space between teeth and gums or around the tooth root becomes infected. If it is not treated soon, the infection can even spread to other parts of the body.
To ease the pain, rinse your mouth out with a salt water mixture. Use 1/2 a teaspoon of salt in about 250 ml or 8 ounces of water and rinse several times a day.
Book an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.
If you have injured the soft tissue in your mouth (inside of the cheek, gums, tongue, lips etc), the most important thing is to stop the bleeding.
