If you have a dental emergency please get in touch as soon as possible by calling us on 01367 253685. We might be unable to answer your call straight away if we are seeing other patients, so do leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Our ethos towards treatment dramatically limits the amount of emergencies we see from regular patients, as we are dedicated to helping them achieve and maintain an excellent level of dental health.

If you do have a dental emergency, please get in touch as soon as possible. We can relieve tooth pain immediately. Whether the problem is from a broken tooth, lost filling or an infection, we aim to deal with it promptly. Your wellbeing is important to us and we put your comfort first.

Get in touch with our team as soon as you can so we can arrange an emergency appointment.

What to do if you have…


You can take painkillers regularly to help relieve the pain. You can use paracetamol or ibuprofen, but please remember to follow the instructions on the packet.

Lost filling or crown?

Keep the restoration if you still have it. If intact, you can use sugar-free gum to stick it in place. You can use over-the-counter dental cement (if you have access to it).

Chipped tooth?

First rinse your mouth with warm water. If you have any pieces, keep them. A cold compress will help reduce any swelling and you can stop any bleeding with a piece of gauze pressed on the wound.

Knocked out tooth?

We will be much more likely to save the tooth if you see us quickly. Hold the tooth carefully and avoid touching the roots – these are very delicate. Rinse gently with water to remove excess skin.

If you can, try to put the tooth back and make sure it is the right way round. If you can’t, don’t force it in as this could damage the tooth and the gum. Place it in some milk or water containing a pinch of salt.

An abscess?

Rinse your mouth with warm, salty water and apply a cold compress to ease any swelling. If you experience intense pain and swelling, accompanied by flu-like symptoms, you should give us a call and we will arrange for immediate assistance.
