If you experiencing dental pain, and require an emergency appointment please call us on 01224 827 095 so we can help.
We strongly advise that you call us at the first sign of pain, so we can treat early symptoms and prevent problems progressing, or worsening over the weekend. Our team will be able to book you in for an appointment with our emergency dentist at your earliest convenience, and advise you how to manage any problems whilst you are waiting to be seen. We have late evening and Saturday appointments available for your convenience.
When experiencing a dental emergency, our team first need to assess the problem. You will attend an emergency examination first of all, during which your dentist will diagnose the problem and devise your treatment plan. Pain relief treatment or any temporary work will be given where necessary to relieve symptoms whilst you wait for further treatment. In some cases, antibiotics may be required before further treatment is carried out.
Usually, you will then require a further appointment to resolve your dental problems. This will be scheduled as soon as possible, or if the dentist has availability or symptoms require urgent treatment, work may commence following the examination.
