Dental emergencies can happen for all sorts of reasons. Some examples of common dental emergencies are:
Whatever the cause, if you think you have a dental emergency you'll want to be seen by a dentist as soon as possible. Dental pain can be severe, almost unbearable, which is why we promise we will never leave a patient in pain. In addition, if a tooth has been knocked out, the quicker you get yourself and your tooth to the surgery, the more chance there is of saving it.
If you have a dental emergency, contact the practice straight away on 01689 872217. You can also email on firstname.lastname@example.org, or make an online booking. We will do everything possible to see you the same day. Even if we can't complete your treatment that day, we will give you pain relief straight away.
We are also pleased to offer an out-of-hours emergency service, so that if your emergency occurs outside normal practice hours, you don't have to wait until the morning to be seen.
Just call our normal practice number and the answer machine will provide you with the number of the dentist on duty.
Once we have relieved your pain and treated your emergency, you may need a follow-up appointment to treat any underlying conditions, for example root canal therapy, which can help prevent further infections.
