If you are ever in dental pain or discomfort, please contact us straightaway as we can help you. We make every effort to see people in pain as quickly as possible, preferably on the same day. Our dental team can also offer helpful advice over the phone. During an emergency appointment, we will diagnose the problem and provide treatment to help you feel more comfortable, relieving your pain. You will probably need to see us again for further treatment.
When to Seek Immediate Emergency Dental Care
Please come and see us immediately if toothache has caused fever, facial swelling or a general sense of being unwell. A bad tooth infection can affect your general health and you must get emergency treatment. If you knock out a tooth you will need to come and see us straightaway. Sometimes a tooth can be successfully reinserted in the first 30 minutes to an hour after the accident. If you do knock out a tooth, carefully pick it up by the crown and rinse off any visible dirt. Either re-insert the tooth, ensuring it faces the right way around or store it in a little milk or saliva and come to see us straightaway.
