Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can happen at any time and not just during normal opening hours. If you need to see an emergency dentist, please call 01536 710075 straight away. If you call out of normal opening hours please follow the instructions on our answering machine.

Charges apply to dental emergency treatment. Out of hours, the callout fee for the emergency assessment is £180 to a registered patient of the clinic and £300 to a non-registered patient.

Our opening hours can be found here:

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

We will do everything possible to see you on the same day that you call for an emergency 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.

If you require an assessment for a dental emergency please call 01536 710075. Charges can be estimated prior to treatment based on a verbal assessment from your symptoms.
