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.
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:
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.
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.
