We understand that you must secure an emergency dentist appointment quickly when worrying emergencies occur.
Here at Maida Smiles, we hate for any patient to be left in pain waiting for an appointment – that’s why we reserve specific emergency dental appointments to ensure that we can always fit patients in when they are in need.
Whether it’s an excruciating toothache, tooth pain, infection or damage to the tooth or its structure, it will be vital for you to seek immediate dental attention.
Please call and speak to our lovely receptionist, who will do their very best to arrange a last-minute appointment for you on the same day. However, we recommend that any emergency case phones as soon as possible.
“I’m a US citizen teaching in London for the semester who suffered a minor dental emergency: my crown unexpectedly came off in the middle of my stay, I found Maida Smiles in my neighbourhood and walked in to ask for help. They very graciously found a way to squeeze me in that same afternoon to assess the damage. I was in and out of the chair in about 20 minutes. Good skill and exceptional service. I recommend Maida Smiles most highly to anyone!”

When to visit the dentist
In the case of dental emergencies, the more you know, the better and faster you’ll be able to react to problems when they arise. Remember, the goal is to preserve your teeth for the long term and relieve any pain you feel. We know how terrible infections and toothaches feel.
You should visit the dentist if anything in your mouth is amiss. If it’s an infection, it’s only the dentist who will be able to take care of the problem. Whereas, if you have a knocked-out tooth, you may need to act fast beforehand to save it.
When to go to the hospital:
The NHS advises going to A&E in serious circumstances that can include:
I had 2 wisdom teeth removal during one appointment and literally didn’t feel any pain or anything unpleasant at all. It’s was such a great experience end-to-end.
