Dental emergencies can be unbearable, and the quicker you get in contact, the sooner we will be able to help you.

hsdcAt Harley Street Dental Clinic, we know that dental emergencies pay no mind to the clock. They can arise at any time of the day or night, and as with any medical emergency, time is often of the essence. That’s why we have a call-out service available until 10pm and an emergency service line, as well as longer practice opening hours than many other dental practices.

What is a dental emergency?

There are many reasons you might urgently need to see the dentist, from unbearable toothache to an accident or injury causing damage to the teeth, gums or jaw. Common dental emergencies include:

  • Teeth that are knocked out (common in trips, falls, and sporting accidents)
  • Teeth that are broken (again commonly caused by accidents and injuries)
  • Unbearable tooth ache
  • Excessive/unstoppable bleeding after oral surgery
  • Damage to orthodontic devices or restorations

When you contact our Harley Street clinic in an emergency, we will whenever possible attempt to see you on the same day.

We work as a team at Harley Street Dental Clinic, meaning that when you contact us in an emergency we may direct you to one of our dentists, oral surgeons or other specialists, depending on who is best-placed to help you.

Our first priority will be to get you out of pain, and you may require further appointments with the dentist to fully treat your condition.

If you have a lost tooth, your dentist may be able to reimplant it in the socket, so be sure to keep it in a clean container covered in your own saliva or milk, and bring it to your appointment.
