Need Emergency Dental Care?
Do you have a cracked tooth, unbearable pain or a pressing need to consult an emergency dentist?
Our staff understand just how upsetting this can be and aim to relieve you of any dental pain and distress as quickly as possible.
As dental infections can spread very rapidly, prompt treatment can help ensure your situation doesn’t worsen.
Frequently, these problems develop at the weekend, on a Bank Holiday or maybe if you have a social event when your usual dentist is not open. If your issue is impairing your sleep or causing difficulty when eating, you should arrange an urgent dental appointment as soon as possible. At Mayfield Dental, we make every effort to help you immediately.
We provide emergency appointments to our dental patients suffering from pain within 24 hours, and often on the same day, where possible.
Even if you’ve never visited our practice before and are searching for emergency dental care, we’ll do our best to help.
Quick and useful natural remedies for urgent dental issues:
Eliminate extremely hot and cold foods and drinks
Use non-prescription pain medicine to minimise pain and swelling
Add some clove oil on some cotton wool and apply close to the problem tooth
Free assistance is provided on our 24-hour, out-of-hours emergency mobile 07891 578 648 for both new and active dental patients.
If your issue is clearly an emergency then we offer an emergency call-out service to supply pain relief and emergency care.
We are based in Sanderstead, South Croydon which is within easy reach of Kenley.

Recommendations on dental emergencies
If you experience an inflamed face, it may be due to an infection and dental treatment may be necessary. We advise you to contact our practice immediately. In rare cases, if the swelling has become so substantial that it is difficult to swallow or breathe, please call A&E.
Damaged tooth or filling
In the event of a damaged tooth or filling, avoid eating hot or cold foods and try not to chew on that side. Painkillers can relieve the symptoms, but it is important to contact our clinic as soon as possible for assessment. Delaying treatment could increase the risk of further damage to the tooth and nerve.
My crown/bridge has broken off
If your crown or bridge has broken off, your tooth may be sensitive to temperatures. Avoid hot and cold drinks and refrain from chewing on that side. Keep the crown or bridge safe and secure and bring it with you to your appointment. It may need to be re-cemented to avoid further damage to the underlying tooth and nerve.
Bleeding after having a tooth out
Following a tooth extraction, make sure to follow all post-operative guidance and avoid physical exertion. Apply continuous pressure (10-15 minutes) to the injury with the materials provided by your dentist or a fresh piece of cotton. If you experience intense dental pain that is not relieved by over-the-counter painkillers or which persists after several days, please get in touch with us.
Pain just after an extraction
A small amount of pain and swelling following tooth extraction can usually be controlled using over-the-counter painkillers (ibuprofen/paracetamol). A cold pack placed on your face over the affected area may also help. Make sure you refrain from smoking. If you experience extreme dental pain which these steps don’t seem to improve, or which persists after several days, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.
Broken or defective dentures
If you have broken or defective dentures, we work with local dental laboratories to fix them as quickly as possible. In some cases, we may need to take an impression of your mouth to accurately position the broken sections.
Tooth knocked out
If a tooth is knocked out, it is important to re-implant it as soon as possible. Contact us immediately for an urgent appointment and avoid touching the root to reduce the risk of microscopic injury to where the bone connects. If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently with water but do not scrub. If possible, replace the tooth back into the gap in your gum and hold it there until you see us. If this is not possible, keep your tooth in cold milk.
Tooth pushed out of position
If your tooth is pushed out of position, try to gently move it back with your finger and avoid eating. Please contact our team for further advice.
Wisdom tooth soreness or infection
If you experience wisdom tooth soreness or infection, our staff can check your wisdom tooth or teeth, organize an X-ray, and have our oral surgeon extract it with minimal wait times.
