If you've chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or an injury, it can be a traumatic experience. It's very important that you see a dentist immediately, even if the tooth is just slightly chipped. And if you have knocked out a tooth or several teeth, the sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better because there is a chance that the teeth could be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.

It's very important that you keep the knocked out tooth clean and avoid handling the root. In some cases you may be able to put the tooth back into the socket by biting down on a clean paper towel for around 15-20 minutes.

If you have a chipped tooth then your dentist may be able to smooth down the uneven edge and replace the missing part with a tooth-coloured filling. If you break a back molar then this may have to be replaced with a crown.

If you require an emergency dental treatment, you should ask to see a dentist as soon as possible. At our practice we offer a same day service for all dental emergencies from toothache to lost or broken crowns, chipped teeth and fillings to abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth and a swollen face. We can take care of your injuries to ensure you heal quicker and more effectively, so you avoid additional dental problems in the future.

  • Having moved from Surrey just a year ago, I had to find a new dental surgeon.

    Our new dentist, Dr Farid Rafatnia, at the Witterings Dental Practice is brilliant. I had quite a lot of work done including extraction, fillings and bridges. All were carried out within a cheery atmosphere and with great professionalism. Anyone who goes there will really benefit from this dental practice. The staff are all so cheerful and helpful too.

  • Doctor Rafatnia has provided me with substantial dental treatment during early 2014 and I cannot recommend him enough. The treatment has been of the highest standard and to my complete satisfaction. Doctor Rafatnia is very pleasant, professional and reassuring.

  • We have been going to this practice for over 30 years. During this time my wife and I have always been treated with every care and consideration. Before joining The Wittering Practice I was always in dread of having any dental treatment but was very soon put at complete ease with the care and understanding that has always been shown. We have even had to call this practice from a cruise ship with a problem and was seen and treated on the day we returned. Many thanks.
