Emergency dental care
If you require emergency dental treatment, you should ask to see a dentist as soon as possible. At our practice we offer a same-day service for all dental emergencies, from toothache, lost or broken crowns, chipped teeth and fillings to abscesses, trauma, avulsed (knocked out) teeth and a swollen face. We can take care of your injuries to ensure you heal quicker and more effectively, so you avoid additional dental problems in the future.
If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or injury, it can be a traumatic experience. It is important that you see a dentist as soon as possible, even if the tooth is just slightly chipped. Your dentist may be able to smooth down the uneven edge and replace the missing part with a tooth-coloured filling; if you break a back molar then this may have to be replaced with a crown.
If you have knocked out a tooth or several teeth, you should see a dentist immediately to see if the tooth can be successfully replaced.
If you have an urgent dental problem, please call the Welcome Team before 10am where possible so that we can arrange to see you at the earliest opportunity. Outside clinic hours, our answerphone service provides an emergency number to one of our dentists, ensuring you always have access to prompt advice and treatment.
