“The team here were really useful and helpful. I phoned up around 6.30 am with excruciating toothache, which had worsened over the last couple of days. By 8.30 am I was in the dentist’s chair waiting for the dentist. Couldn’t recommend anyone better. Always a struggle with emergency appointments in the city – glad I found Pedro.”

Everything you need to know about your tooth pain or toothache

  • It lasts more than two days
  • Hurts when you bite down
  • Is not relieved with over the counter pain relief
  • You have a high temperature
  • Have red or swollen gums
  • Your cheek or jaw is swollen

Only go to A&E if your neck or eye is swollen or the swelling in your mouth is impacting your ability to breathe.

  • Pulsating sensation in the teeth or gums like a heartbeat
  • Dull throbbing pain in the jaw
  • Sharp pains when eating or drinking
  • Swelling in the affected area
  • Pain is persistent or comes and goes
  • Associated symptoms might include headache or fever

Dental pulp can be inflamed for several reasons like:

  • Tooth decay caused by cracked or broken teeth
  • Broken, damaged or loose fillings
  • Gums that are receding

Other causes of tooth pain might involve:

  • Wisdom tooth eruption
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Bacterial infections or ulcers
  • Inflammation of the sinus
  • Grinding or clenching teeth
  • Tooth abscess

Depending on the cause of your tooth pain and the extent of the damage, several treatments might be applicable.

Most common solutions include:

  • If caused by decay a dental filling can be used. However, if the extent of the decay is too much an inlay or onlay might be recommend, and if that fails, a dental crown.
  • If your dental pulp is infected, which is followed by symptoms of sensitivity and tooth discolouration, a root canal will be required to save the tooth.
  • If the tooth is beyond saving, tooth extraction will be recommended as a last resort.

If the dental pulp is infected, a course of antibiotics or a root canal treatment may be necessary. During this procedure, your emergency dentist will remove the pulp, fill the space with paste and cover the rest of the tooth with a crown to seal and protect it.

Tooth pain is an indication that something is wrong. Sometimes, the pain might range from mild to severe, which can come and go. However, it can be disturbed or made worse when eating and drinking.

As dentists, we know that this pain gets progressively worse the more it is ignored, and it can often lead to more costly dental fixes and repairs.

Our advice is to see an emergency dentist as soon as you can.

  • Eat or drink sugary substances like sweets
  • Avoid hot or cold drinks and foods
  • Do not smoke
  • Do not ignore it
  • Rinse your mouth with warm, salty water
  • Lessen swelling by placing an ice pack for 15 minutes
  • Chew food on the other side of the mouth
  • Take pain relief medication like Ibruprofen and follow the instructions on the label
  • Avoid acidic and sugary foods

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

It was my first time in the clinic and I had a great experience. The staff is very friendly. Samantha was very helpful with booking the appointment and fast replied to my messages. I had an appointment with Dr. Ines do Carmo. She is lovely. She explained all the treatment and the best option for my case. Cintia was helping Dr. Ines with the appointment. Cintia is very friendly. Dr. Ines and Cintia took care of me and made me feel welcome during the consultation. I will continue my treatment in the clinic. I recommend the clinic and especially Dr. Ines do Carmo.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
