Unfortunately many of us will have toothache at some point in our lives. Dental pain can be so debilitating and all you want is someone to help you.
Common dental causes of toothache include dental decay/cavities, dental abscesses, gum disease, sensitive tooth root (dentine hypersensitivity), a cracked tooth, impacted teeth and eruption of teeth. In most cases we can offer our registered patients an appointment to deal with your emergency within 24 – 48 hours. Non registered patients are also welcome to call us to discuss their dental emergency.
The only sure way to find out what is causing your discomfort is to come in and see us. We will perform any necessary diagnostic tests such as x-rays, to try and identify the exact source & cause of the pain. All the results of the tests will be discussed with you together with a treatment plan and the associated costs.
If you are in need of emergency dental treatment or have sustained a dental trauma due to injury, please call on 01782 374330 so we can discuss the best possible course of action for you.
During Bank Holidays and out of normal clinic hours please call 01782 374330 where our automated message will explain what you need to do. We do work closely with several buddy dental practices to ensure that emergency provision is available for our registered patients during any clinicians holidays. If you are in pain just call us and we will endeavour to assist you.
Not sure if you have an emergency?
If you are unsure about what to do or if indeed you have a dental emergency, answer the following questions:
Are you in unbearable pain that is preventing you from sleeping? Is there any swelling in or around your mouth or face? Has a filling, crown or bridge fallen out?
If the answer is yes to one or more of these questions, you may be having a dental emergency and you should call us straight away.
WE’LL DO OUR BEST TO HELP
