Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can happen at any time – not just during clinic opening hours. If you need to see an emergency dentist at our Rothwell clinic, please call 01536 710075 straight away. We will never leave a patient in pain. If you call out of clinic opening hours (8am-8pm, Monday to Saturday) please follow the instructions on our answer machine.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

There are many causes of dental emergencies. Often, the first symptom is pain, which can be extreme. Common reasons for needing emergency dental treatment include:

  • Dental abscesses and other unexplained swellings
  • Sudden, severe toothache
  • Teeth that are knocked out due to an accident or injury, such as a fall or a sports injury
  • Teeth that are cracked or broken
  • Teeth that are knocked out of position (but remain in the mouth)
  • Uncontrollable bleeding after a tooth extraction or other oral surgery
  • Injury to the gums
  • Broken, damaged or displaced milk teeth in children
  • Damage to restorations, such as broken crowns, veneers or bridges

All of our Clinic Plan members enjoy emergency dental cover, although an extra charge may apply for out-of-hours appointments. We will do everything possible to see you on the same day that you call and will make sure we get you out of pain. In some cases, you may need to return to complete further restorative treatment at a later appointment.

What to do if you lose a tooth

Only pick the tooth up by the crown (the white, top section). Avoid touching the root.

If the tooth is dirty, rinse it for no more than 10 seconds under cold, running water.

Put the tooth back in the socket if possible. Bite down on a piece of clean material to keep it in place.

If you can't put it back in the socket, keep the tooth in your mouth between your cheeks and teeth, or place it in a container and cover it with milk.
