Emergency Dentist London Accepting New Patients
High Street is well-known as a high-end shopping and fine dining district, with easy access to all the best London has to offer. From Kensington Palace to the Prince Albert museum district; from classy clubs to high-end pubs; and from musical theatre to blockbuster cinema, the surrounding area offers a non-stop slate of entertainment.As home to this amazing array of notable destinations, Kensington London draws tourists from across the country and around the world. Naturally, tourists seldom travel with a dentist. Yet dental emergencies are exactly the sort of event that never abide by a schedule, and are at least as likely to occur while traveling as at home. Fortunately, when the need arises, Kensington can fulfill your Emergency Dentist London needs.
Although many policies for travel insurance include emergency dental coverage for travel to London, it is always wise to check the policy. We can assist with looking up the specifics of your personal coverage, to help you get back to your holiday with as brief an interruption as possible. Additionally, we speak a variety of languages in our Emergency Dentist London office so we are able to accommodate international visitors with ease.
Local Londoners are welcome to utilize our Emergency Dentist London services as well, even if they are not registered with us. Sometimes an emergency can arise during a business lunch or before another local dentist can work a patient in. We know how to navigate the paperwork to help London residents who normally visit a different dentist without emergency hours or available immediate appointments.
Kensington Dental is proud to maintain an Emergency Dentist London presence in this famous district, and to offer daily and after-hours assistance with dental emergencies to visiting shoppers, diners, and tourists.

Existing patients have the added benefit that dental records are easy to locate and pull up, and are automatically updated to reflect emergency treatment.
Gentle Emergency Dentist London Service for Anxious Patients
Our Emergency Dentist London clinic prides itself on providing high quality treatment to reassure the most anxious patients. We understand the host of reasons that lead people to avoid regular dental cleanings.

Our entire Emergency Dentist London practice is dedicated to keeping your visit to the dentist as stress-free as possible. In fact, our goal with all emergency dentist visits in London is to make sure patients leave with a feeling of relief, knowing their crisis has been professionally managed.

How to Proceed when Emergency Dentist London is Needed
If you suspect you have a dental emergency, call our special Emergency Dentist London hotline at 07958901920. A trained specialist will answer your call and help you assess the situation. Our first order of business is to provide a soothing influence so you can calm down and think more clearly. Then we can talk through your symptoms and determine the next course of action.
While you wait to get to the emergency dental visit, try a little Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin (Ibuprofen) to take the edge off any pain and swelling. Stick to soft foods and take care not to bite down hard on the affected tooth.
What Constitutes a Need for Emergency Dentist London
Although our Emergency Dentist London professionals are always ready to help you, sometimes it helps to assess your situation before calling. The following examples represent potential situations that could require an emergency dental visit.
A broken or chipped tooth is the most frequent cause of a need for Emergency Dentist London. It can occur as the result of eating popcorn or other hard food, from an accidental encounter with a wall or other immovable object; or as the result of progressive decay from within the tooth. This type of damage needs to be repaired as quickly as possible to prevent further injury from making the situation worse.
Not only is a damaged or broken tooth painful and irritating to the gums, cheek and tongue, but it can also affect appearance. And for tourists, appearance is even more important than usual as more photos tend to be taken when on holiday! Emergency Dentist London can do more than salvage a tooth–it can redeem an entire holiday.
Treatment for simple cases involves filling or bonding the affected tooth, so your holiday can get back on track. In more extreme situations that will involve multiple visits after returning home, the Emergency Dentist London may perform a temporary solution or go ahead and start the longer process of preparing a crown. You can rest assured that the Emergency Dentist London practitioner will select the best course of action to make you comfortable and get you back in action as quickly as possible.
An abscessed tooth happens as the result of an infection that starts under the gums. When the infection has no outlet to escape, it builds up and causes a little pocket of swelling and irritation. While this condition does not occur instantly, it can quickly progress from tolerable to quite painful. And pain frequently picks quiet times in the middle of the night to rear its big ugly head. Emergency Dentist London specializes in helping minimize these agonizing nighttime hours.
Signs of an abscess include swelling along the gums, or sharp pain emanating from a localized area. Additional signs include a generalized fever, bitter or bad breath, a draining open sore in the mouth, or an all-over feeling of discomfort. This infection can be caused by decay deep in the tooth, by a chipped tooth that has not been properly treated, or by gum disease. All of these situations cause tiny openings in the tooth or gum which allows bacteria to creep into the tiny spaces and start to build up.
Our Emergency Dentist London clinic can drain the abscess and work to save the tooth by lancing and draining the affected area. If this is insufficient, the Emergency Dentist London dentist is able to perform an emergency root canal.
Sore or bleeding gums
When teeth are not regularly cleaned, plaque can build up along the gumline and cause irritation to the gums. Over time, this can cause gum disease, and is indicated by sore or bleeding gums.
Taken care of promptly, sore or bleeding gums are not generally an indicator for emergency dental treatment. However, gum disease creates conditions for infection, which leads to abscesses.
If sore gums become exacerbated during a trip, a visit to Emergency Dentist London can help relieve the symptoms and get your holiday back on track.
While some toothaches are temporary with no lingering effect, others indicate a more serious underlying cause. When in doubt, a visit to the Emergency Dentist London could uncover or rule out the kind of condition that needs to be addressed immediately. Better to remember this trip for different reasons than “The holiday I lost my tooth.”
Facial Injury or Accident
Facial injuries can happen while traveling in a motor vehicle, but also can result from sports or other recreational activity, or even from stumbling and falling while taking an otherwise completely harmless walk through the park. If damage to teeth or mouth is suspected for any reason, the smart idea is always to check with a dental professional. Emergency Dentist London is also here to help you address small injuries before they grow too large.
Whatever your need, Emergency Dentist London is able to help assess and treat your dental emergency and get you back to your normal life as quickly as possible. Call our Emergency Dentist London hotline today.
