The importance of emergency dental care
We understand how worrying and how uncomfortable dental and oral pain can be. When there is pain, there is usually some oral health complication in or around the affected area.
Any form of tooth pain, no matter how mild or extreme, is a sign that you need to make an appointment to see your dentist immediately.
Most of the time, treating the complication right away may mean something as simple as needing a filling due to tooth decay.
However, if these types of treatments are delayed, it may lead to something far more complicated and expensive, such as root canal treatment or even a drastic measure like removing the tooth in question.
Knowing that there is a qualified and experienced emergency dentist nearby gives our patients much-needed peace of mind. They feel confident knowing they can receive the necessary urgent care in the event of a dental emergency.

“I have attended Markham Associates Dental Surgeons for more years than I care to count, and they have always treated my teeth with skill and professional insight, through routine visits and emergencies. They have encouraged me to look after my teeth properly, and their advice gives me hope that I will have good dental health into my (even more) senior years. Thanks to Dr. Kamran and the team.”

What you can expect during your emergency treatment
We treat all our emergency patients exactly how we would expect to be treated in this situation: with compassion, dignity and respect.
We try and treat dental emergencies the same day but this will obviously depend on how many slots we have available, so the sooner you can call in the day, the better.
So that we can agree on your most suitable treatment, we will discuss with you the recommended treatment options available to you (including cost, length of treatment, sedation, recovery time etc.)
Need a 24-hour emergency dentist near me?
While you are waiting to see us, try following these helpful emergency dental care tips to help alleviate any pain:
Rinse your mouth with warm water and take over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, but remember to follow the instructions on the packet. A cold compress can help reduce any swelling.
Place sugar-free chewing gum or temporary filling material in the cavity and avoid eating or drinking on the affected tooth.
If still in one piece, use chewing gum or over-the-counter dental cement to stick the crown in place temporarily. If broken, keep all the pieces and cover the cavity in the same way as a lost filling.
Knocked out tooth
Hold the tooth carefully by the crown (the part that shows when in your mouth) and rinse gently with water (but be sure not to scrub). Try to put the tooth back in place but make sure it is the correct way around. If this is not possible, then keep it in some milk (or water containing a pinch of salt).
Don’t reinsert a baby tooth, as it can damage the permanent tooth underneath.
Collect any pieces of tooth and store them in milk. Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce any swelling.
Some simple precautions you could take to avoid dental injuries:
- Always use a mouthguard during any contact sports.
- Never chew ice, popcorn kernels or hard sweets.
- Avoid using your teeth to cut threads or similar objects.
- Don’t hold small torches between your front teeth when you do DIY work.
