Dental emergencies

A dental emergency can be defined as:

  • An extremely severe toothache which is not controlled with painkillers or other measures and may affect ability to sleep or function properly,
  • Uncontrolled bleeding after extraction,
  • Infection and swelling/abscess affecting breathing or swallowing,
  • Facial trauma resulting in broken teeth.

If you have a dental emergency please call us on 02087786797 as soon after 930am as possible. Please do not email the practice as this may not be monitored. The receptionist will need to ask a number of questions about your symptoms. If you are a registered patient we aim to see emergencies on the same day. Your appointment may not be with your usual dentist.

If you are a new patient we will do our best to see you depending on availability.

If you have a dental emergency outside of normal hours please call 111.
