SAME DAY EMERGENCY DENTISTS IN CHECKENDON, READING & OXFORD

Need a friendly emergency dentist to help get you out of pain? See how we can help patients from Checkendon, Reading & Oxford.

Treating dental emergencies across Checkendon, Reading, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. We also specifically keep time slots aside every day for emergencies as we endeavour to see all emergency appointments on the same day you call. If you’re not sure if a dental problem is an emergency, we offer this advice: if it hurts, it’s an emergency. 

If your injury seems small, it can still affect the living tissues inside the teeth. Quick treatment improves the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth. If you ignore dental pain or dental injury, you’re taking a chance, because there is also a risk of getting an infection. 

Trauma Related Injuries 

If your tooth is displaced by trauma or has been knocked out of the socket we recommend you call us as soon as possible. If the tooth is out of the socket, care should be taken to handle the tooth only by its crown and not by its root. If you are unsure about reimplanting the tooth, clean the tooth under running water and place the tooth in milk or store it on the inside of your cheek. Do not store the tooth in water. There are times when a tooth can be re-implanted and saved if done promptly. 

Any dental injury is distressing especially when a permanent tooth is knocked out. Teeth that are reinserted into their socket within twenty minutes have the best chance of surviving. Byways Dental Practice recommends cold packs or even ice cubes placed either inside the mouth or above your injured tooth. This will reduce pain and swelling before the patient reaches our dental practice. 

Getting a dental injury whilst playing sports, you are more likely to sustain damage to the teeth when not wearing a protective mouthguard. The cost of a fractured tooth is greater than the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard. 

Dental Abscess 

If you have pain when you bite or chew, especially if it is accompanied by a foul odour and a bad taste, it can be a sign of an abscess that will require urgent treatment.  An abscessed tooth may cause an unrelenting or spontaneous pain that may last anywhere from 30 seconds to hours. 

The pain may or may not be triggered by irritants such as food, heat or cold and it may be accompanied by swelling. 

Byways Dental Practice recommends to come in and to see one of our professional dentists as soon as possible. In the worst case scenario, the tooth may require root canal therapy or may need to be extracted. 

Once we have examined the problem, we will offer you treatment options. Antibiotics may be required when treating abscessed teeth, getting you pain-free and comfortable is our main priority. 

Broken Dentures 

Sometimes people who use dentures can often suffer unforeseen problems. Dentures can be misplaced or lost, broken or teeth can become detached. We also find that the clasps or the plastic base may break. Most of these issues can be remedied through the dental practice during regular business hours.

What Our Patients Say

Below is some our our feedback from our clients

The prospect of root canal treatment is a daunting one, but I can only say the care and attention given to me by Pavan was second to none. I would just like to say how pleased I am with the dental treatment I have received recently. The course of treatment was "virtually painless" which was remarkable and the "final look" of the upper 4 front teeth is very good indeed.
- Mr T Cocklin
Before joining the Byways Dental Practice I had a root canal treatment at my previous dental practice. Unfortunately, it was not done properly and I was left in considerable pain. Fortunately, I changed dentists and Dr. Pavan Gogna has now performed root canal treatment correctly and for the first time in a very long time, I am now pain-free. Many thanks to him and all the staff at Byways Dental Practice.
- Mrs P Allen
I recently needed an urgent root canal treatment, where I had a long-standing infection under a crown which my previous dental practice had not spotted. Pav did a fabulous job of carrying out the root canal without damaging the original crown. Very professional whilst managing to keep me relaxed throughout treatment, including step by step information on what he was doing which was very reassuring.
- Mr D Rogers
Took my 9 month old baby for his first check up today & they were absolutely wonderful! The secretarial ladies were really pleasant & welcoming! I was late (because baby brain is a real problem) but, the dentist completely understood & still saw us! She looked at his teeth & gave me some advice on brushing & building good habits & let me ask the questions I needed to. Can't recommend this practice enough! Booked in for his 6months check whilst I was there, because when you find a good dentist it's well w keeping them.
- Jenny D
Amita, Chrissy, Sam and the team are not only friendly and welcoming but also phenomenal at what they do. I used to dread going to the dentist but Amita has made the whole experience so much more manageable, she takes her time with me, checks in and ultimately my teeth are now in a much healthier state. Thank you, highly recommended to anyone!!
- Emma Benson
I cannot recommend this wonderful practice highly enough - Amita and the team immediately put me at my ease, and had the perfect balance of warmth and professionalism that everyone hopes for in a dentist. Be prepared Amita, for the entire Neighbour family to be trooping through your doors very soon! As for me, I feel my journey to that perfect healthy smile has truly begun, and I couldn’t be more thankful 😊
- Liz Neighbour
This is the best dental practice I have used - and there have been many. Initially registering with Pav at Byways for his expertise on root canal treatment some years ago, the dental care and attention I have received from him and his team have been outstanding. Their communication skills, flexibility and problem solving are second to none and have been particularly reassuring for me during the pandemic. I can not recommend the team at Byways highly enough. Well done Pav and team, and thank you.
- Lucienne de Mauny
Extremely professional, friendly and helpful. I would strongly recommend this dental practice. The administrative team have been friendly and always happy to help whether it be with directions to the practice or explaining invoice enquires. Pavan Gogna who carried out my treatment throughly explained my options and listened to my input. He took the time to make sure I was comfortable and looked out for my well-being during treatment. The practice is immaculately clean with top of the line equipment.
- Joanne Coles
Amita and the team are all absolutely amazing! I've got Invisalign done here and it's been a great experience, my teeth have been transformed and Amita has been so helpful in accomodating me moving abroad and in organising my treatment to fit round the few weeks I come back.
- Sarah Moberly
I have always been nervous going to the dentist but Lauren made me feel very much at ease, she was very reassuring which made me feel comfortable. The whole experience was excellent and I look forward to my next appointment. Thank you Byways!!
- Marie Bowden
I do not know many people who like going to the dentist? Well, fear not the whole experience of Byways was amazing. From entering the building with the reception staff knowing who I was, to been called on time, to the procedure to follow for the pandemic, to the light/bright rooms to the friendly professional dentist, hygenist and nurse, it was a pleasant experience. Thank you to Loreana Baylis for recommended, I would highly recommend.
