At Sensational Smiles, we understand that toothache is no ordinary pain. Each tooth contains lots of nerve endings, which are highly susceptible and sensitive to pain. This severe pain can affect your eating, sleeping, and general day-to-day life, it can be a short, sharp pain, or you may experience a constant dull ache. All you want to do is to get the problem fixed and the pain to go away. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to see us, which is why our friendly experienced reception team will ensure that you are seen as soon as possible. Our emergency appointments are available throughout normal working hours, and patients will be seen on the same day, and have the treatment required to get you out of pain.

We guarantee to get you out of your dental crisis for £130. If there is a simple solution to getting you out of pain such as a course of antibiotics this price will be reduced. The £130 fee includes any treatment required to get you out of immediate pain, this may be a temporary solution which will require a return trip to complete your treatment - for example, if root canal treatment is required, this may be started and a temporary filling placed, which you will need to return to complete. If extraction is advised, this can be done on the same day, and we have highly trained and experienced oral surgeons working for us who will be able to do so. Our dedicated oral surgeons are Wasima Shafique and Johann Styger who are both very gentle, kind and caring.
A dental emergency is a dental issue that requires immediate attention, due to either pain or loss of function. This could be a loose crown, a missing tooth preventing you from eating properly, broken dental appliances such as dentures or fixed and removable retainers requiring a repair, which should be done as soon as possible to prevent movement of the teeth back to their original position following orthodontic treatment.
If you have a broken denture, which includes fractures to the denture compromising the function, or you require a tooth added onto your denture, this can usually be done on the day of your appointment. This takes around an hour, and we have an onsite laboratory and laboratory technician who works closely with the dentist and patient following their instruction to ensure all are entirely happy with the outcome.
After examining the mouth, the dentist may find that the tooth that is covered by the crown may have decay or be fractured, if this is the case, you may have to consider other options such as a bridge, denture or an implant to fill this gap as the longevity of the crown is reduced greatly once the underlying tooth is starts to deteriorate.
Crowns can sometimes de-bond from the tooth, if this happens, keep the crown safe and bring it with you to your appointment. The dentist will check the underlying tooth and ensure the crown fits well. If this is the case, we can re-cement the crown back on which is quick and easy! If examination shows that the crown no longer fits the prepared tooth well, a new crown may be advised, impressions for the new crown can be taken the day of appointment with the new crown ready to fit in 2 weeks. Often a temporary crown is made the same day so that you are not left with a gap whilst waiting for your new crown.
The most common dental complaint is pain, and if you are experiencing dental pain, we aim to see you on the day of calling to alleviate your symptoms. Common emergencies that we deal with are, dental infections which can be treated with antibiotics or by removing the nerve. You may require an extraction, which can often be done the day of booking your emergency appointment, should the dentist recommend doing so. We have two highly trained and experienced oral surgeons working for us, who carry out a lot of our extractions.
Can be restored using a white filling material, known as a composite. This is usually a quick procedure dependant on the severity of the decay and the number of teeth requiring restoration.
If you have chipped your tooth, this can often be repaired the same day of appointment with a white filling. If the chip is very large this may require additional work such as a crown or sometimes tooth replacement. If crown/s or tooth replacement is required, preparations for this can usually be started on the day you come in.
After a tooth is extracted, the socket is left behind. For the site to heal, it needs to fill with blood and form a blood clot. If this blood clot is disturbed this extends the healing and recovery period. It is normal to experience some blood and pain after an extraction, however, if the socket is bleeding freely which cannot be stopped by biting on a gauze or is causing a lot of pain, then you should contact us.
Ideally, loose teeth require an extraction. However, if you do not wish to have an extraction, we could splint the tooth to the teeth next to mobile tooth. For this to be an option, the adjoining teeth will need to be in good condition and not be mobile themself. Teeth generally become loose because of active gum disease. Because of this, periodontal treatment will also be required, to get the gums to a good state of health to prevent future tooth mobility occurring – this will stabilise the gum disease.
