In case of an dental emergency during practice hours, please contact the practice immediately. We will always endeavour to see a patient in pain on the same day but please note emergency appointments are on a first come, first serve basis. If you require emergency treatment outside surgery hours, please telephone NHS 111.
If you need same day emergency treatment please contact reception immediately, preferably early in the morning. Every effort will be made to offer you a firm emergency appointment. Please help us giving the nature of the problem so we can schedule the appropriate amount of time. In most cases we guarantee immediate pain relief and symptom resolution.
Emergency appointments are chargeable at a cost of £30.00 for a consultation, advice and any x-rays required to assist with the diagnosis. Further costs may be incurred should you require treatment. Your dentist will discuss this with you.
Our same day emergency fee during office hours is £30.00

What should I do to cure a toothache?
If you are suffering from a painful toothache, something is wrong and requires attention. Contact us immediately. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol are recommended; do not exceed the maximum dose.
What should I do if I have a swelling?
Swellings are caused by an infection. Contact us immediately to receive treatment or antibiotics.
What should I do if I have fractured my tooth?
Fractured teeth can usually be restored so there is no need to panic. If the tooth is painful, avoid hot or cold foods and avoid eating or biting on that side i.e. relieve the tooth from extreme temperatures and pressure. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol may help. Pain free treatment is usually available by contacting us early.
What if I have lost a crown?
Keep your crown safe so it can be re-cemented as soon as possible to avoid further damage and the need for root canal treatment. Contact us immediately.
What if I have knocked out a tooth?
If an adult (permanent) tooth is knocked out of the mouth:
- Keep the patient calm.
- Find the tooth and pick it up by the crown (the white part). Avoid touching the root.
- If the tooth is dirty, wash it briefly (10 seconds) under cold running water and reposition it. Try to encourage the patient / parent to replant the tooth. Bite on a handkerchief to hold it in position.
- If this is not possible, place the tooth in a suitable storage medium, e.g. a glass of milk or a special storage media for teeth if available (e.g. Hanks balanced storage medium or saline).
- The tooth can also be transported in the mouth, keeping it between the molar teeth and the inside of the cheek.
- If the patient is very young, he/she could swallow the tooth- therefore it is advisable to get the patient to spit in a container and place the tooth in it. Avoid storage in water!
- Seek emergency dental treatment immediately.
Baby (primary) teeth should not be re-implanted back into the mouth.
What if I have broken my denture?
Broken dentures can usually be repaired relatively easily. Please resist the temptation to glue them together your self as this often makes a repair very difficult. Contact us to organise the repair.
