Great experience

Great experience with Dr. Tej and the entire team! Great addition to the area which until now lacked such quality dentistry.


Best Treatment Plans & Aftercare

I recently visited the practise for my composite bonding treatment. I was very nervous for the result but Dr Tej and the staff made me feel very comfortable. Dr Tej took so much care in perfecting my smile, as if my teeth were an art piece! I am so happy with the result, I used to be afraid to show my teeth whilst smiling and now I get so many compliments for having a beautiful smile! And to add to this, Dr Tej ensured that not only did my smile look amazing, but offered me genuine advice on the best treatment plans and aftercare, as well as making sure I didn’t experience any pain or discomfort!

What is the advice for common dental emergencies in Battersea?

Common dental emergencies that we see in patients from Brixton, Clapham, Wandsworth, Stockwell, Battersea, and throughout London include:
If you knock out or loosen a tooth during a fall or other accident, it can be shocking. Time is of the essence with this type of dental emergency and can be the difference between saving and losing your tooth so call us as soon as you can for an emergency dental appointment. In the meantime, don’t overhandle the knocked-out tooth and only pick it up by the crown and not the roots. Keep it either in the inside of your mouth or in a cup of cold milk and bring it with you to see the emergency dentist.

Broken crown

A broken crown can happen either through an accident or if you bite on something hard. Your tooth may feel sensitive or painful in which case you should call to see the emergency dentist. Whilst you are waiting to see the emergency dentist you can take paracetamol. Your dentist will assess your tooth and either repair the crown or replace it completely.


Persistent toothache can be painful. Call us to see the emergency dentist. In the meantime, you can take paracetamol for the pain and try rinsing your mouth in salty water to ease any discomfort. Avoid eating and drinking anything very hot or very cold.


Should I go to the hospital with a dental emergency?
You should only go to the hospital if you have suffered a serious injury. For all other pain or trauma within your mouth, you should book to see the emergency dentist who will be able to help you.
Will treatment for a dental emergency hurt?
No, we will aim to take away any pain that you maybe experiencing because of your dental emergency. We will aim to make you comfortable and may use a local anaesthetic to numb any pain.
Will you remove my tooth with a dental emergency?
It depends on what your dental emergency is. We will always try to save a tooth rather than remove it, so we will only remove a tooth if there are no other options.
