What is a dental emergency in Knightsbridge

A dental emergency is a frightening but incredibly common experience.

At Serene Dental in Knightsbridge, we have treated many patients from Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Pimlico and throughout London for dental emergencies. We will do our best to keep you calm, make you feel comfortable and to treat you as quickly as possible.

At Serene Dental, we classify a dental emergency as any of the following:

  • Any kind of trauma to the mouth or face which has resulted in a  broken, chipped or knocked-out teeth
  • Relentless toothache with pain that is possibly spreading throughout your head
  • A painful abscess or swelling
  • Any bleeding from your teeth, gums or soft tissue in your mouth
  • Lost or chipped fillings and crowns

What should I do in a dental emergency in Knightsbridge?

Here is advice for some of the more common dental emergencies that we see in patients from Knightsbridge, Pimlico, Belgravia and throughout London:

A knocked-out tooth

Make sure you call us for an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible. Saving a knocked-out tooth is time critical so the sooner you call us the better. If you have found the knocked-out tooth, keep it safe either inside your mouth or in a cup of cold milk to prevent it drying out and bring it with you to the emergency dentist. Pick up the tooth by the crown, not by the roots and don’t wash or handle the tooth too much. Take paracetamol if you are suffering with pain.

A chipped tooth

If your tooth suffers a chip or a fracture due to a trauma or injury, then you may need an emergency filling, crown or extraction. Your emergency dentist should be able to file down any uneven edges and replace missing parts of the chipped tooth with a tooth-coloured filling. If you are experiencing pain, try taking paracetamol and swilling your mouth in salt water can help too.

An abscess

If you experience any swelling to your face, gums or mouth then this may be due to a dental abscess. This is an infection which is inside the tooth pulp and will need immediate dental emergency treatment.  Take paracetamol for any pain, do not lie flat but stay seated or upright until you get to the emergency dentist. 

FAQs for dental emergencies in Knightsbridge


What can I do to relieve pain or swelling?

Take paracetamol or an anti-inflammatory pain killer. Avoid taking aspirin as this thins the blood and may make matters worse. You can swill your mouth in salty water to alleviate pain and relieve swelling too. Call us as soon as possible as swelling is usually the result of an infection that can spread.


What happens if I lose a tooth filling?

Call us for an emergency dental appointment as soon as you can. You can take paracetamol for any pain, and you can cover the cavity with sugar-free gum. Only use sugar-free gum as sugar around your cavity will cause pain.


I’m not registered with you but need emergency dental treatment does that matter

No, we can still treat you for a dental emergency if you aren’t registered with us
