It’s possible for a tooth infection to spread rapidly, so getting treatment as soon as possible is essential to avoid further complications.
Make an appointment with our emergency dentist right away, especially if pain is preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep or making eating difficult.
We try to accommodate patients who are in severe pain by offering them emergency appointments within 24 hours, and in the majority of instances, the same day.

General advice for dental emergencies in Morden
Quick and effective pain relief:
Avoid meals and drinks that are either too hot or extremely cold
Take over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate discomfort and reduce swelling
Alternatively add some clove oil, as directed on some cotton wool and then apply it as near as possible to the tooth that is giving you trouble.
Constant, severe pain usually indicates that a tooth is likely to be infected. To improve symptoms, over-the-counter pain relief may help. It’s also important to minimise eating and drinking until dental advice has been given. Get in touch with us at Mayfield Dental as soon as possible.
Inflammation / Abscess
This is typically caused as a result of infection so it’s wise to get it checked out straight away. In the unusual event that a swelling within your mouth has become so big that it is becoming difficult to swallow or breathe properly, do not hesitate – phone A&E immediately.
Broken tooth or dental filling
Avoid eating very hot or cold meals and chew on the other side of the mouth. Painkillers can relieve the symptoms temporarily. Get in touch with our dental clinic to have the tooth assessed as soon as possible.
My crown/bridge has come out
Your tooth may become hypersensitive to temperatures so avoid hot and cold drinks. Keep away from biting on that side of the mouth so that any lodged food doesn’t cause irritation. Try to keep the crown/bridge safe and secure in order to bring it along to us. It may need to be re-set to avoid further damage to the underlying tooth and the dental nerve.
Bleeding after having a tooth out
Ensure you are following all post-operative recommendations. Avoid any strenuous exercise. Apply continuous pressure for approximately 10-15 minutes to the injury with any materials your dentist has provided, or alternatively use a clean piece of pure cotton.
Pain just after a dental extraction
Pain as well as swelling following tooth extraction can usually be managed using over-the-counter painkillers such as (ibuprofen/paracetamol). We recommend applying a cold pack to your face over the area to make it feel more comfortable. Avoid smoking. If you continue to experience unusually severe discomfort which remains noticeable after a few days, please call our dental practice near Morden as soon as possible for a routine check-up.
Broken or cracked dentures
Damaged dentures can usually be fixed and we have a nearby dental lab to handle problems as quickly as possible. On some occasions, it may be necessary to retake an impression of your mouth so that the broken or cracked area can be fitted accurately.
Tooth knocked out
Contact us at Mayfield Dental for an urgent dental appointment. Avoid touching the dental root to help prevent bacteria and infection. If the tooth is dirty, clean it gently with clean water but do not scrub. If possible, replace the tooth back in the socket and keep it there until your appointment. If this is not possible, keep the tooth immersed in cold milk.
Tooth pushed out of position
Attempt to carefully reposition your tooth using very light finger pressure. Refrain from eating and contact our specialist team straight away to arrange an appointment that’s convenient for you.
Wisdom toothache or infection
Our team can check your wisdom tooth/teeth, arrange for an x-ray and if necessary have one of our dentists remove the tooth with minimal waiting times.
Please contact Mayfield Dental at the following number: 07891 578 648 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need prompt emergency dental treatment.
