Emergency Dental Appointments in Chatham, Kent

Here at Smil, we understand that dental emergencies are completely out of your control. They’re incredibly painful and always occur at the most inconvenient of times, unexpectedly and out of the blue. That’s why we proudly offer our patients emergency dental appointments at our practice in Chatham. If you think you need emergency dental care, please contact us immediately.

What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency can be an unexpected, sudden onset of oral pain. It could also be a loose veneer or a knocked-out tooth. It can be tricky to know whether your dental concern is an emergency and whether you need to be seen by a dentist right away. If something doesn’t feel right the best thing to do is call our emergency dentists as soon as possible on 01634 756 536. We’ve put together just some of the most common dental emergencies that we see at our practice in Chatham, along with our top tips on how to deal with them.

Toothache is usually caused by an infection. 

  • Unbearable toothache
  • A painful bite
  • Swollen cheeks
  • Swollen gums
  • A high temperature
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Bad taste in your mouth
  • Can’t be relieved by medication

The above are all signs of an infection. If you can’t relieve your toothache and it doesn’t seem to be disappearing after two days, please contact our emergency dentists in Chatham. We will do everything we can to relieve your pain, treat the infection and get you smiling again.

If you experience more severe symptoms such as severe pain or difficulty breathing, please go to A&E immediately.

A broken tooth

If your tooth has been damaged due to an injury, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to your cheek to reduce swelling. A broken tooth is considered a dental emergency so please call our practice as soon as possible for advice.

A knocked-out tooth

A knocked-out tooth requires immediate attention. Put the tooth into a secure container full of milk or salty water to help preserve it. Stem any bleeding by applying a piece of gauze. After this, please call our emergency dentists who will be able to advise you on the next steps towards saving your tooth.

A filling that has fallen out

If you notice that a filling has fallen out, stick a piece of sugar-free chewing gum to the area to protect the cavity. For further advice and guidance, please call our Chatham practice. We will need to see you to replace your filling and will schedule this with you accordingly.

Signs of a spreading infection

If a tooth infection spreads, it can be damaging to not only your oral health but your overall health. You must contact our emergency dentists as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Swollen glands
  • Fatigue

If you are in extreme pain, please visit A&E.

Some of the other dental emergencies we can help with include:

  • A loose veneer, crown or bridge
  • An abscess
  • Damaged braces or other orthodontic appliances
  • A cracked or chipped tooth
