Frequently asked questions
Dental Emergencies at Dentique Dental Practice

  1. Areas of treatment include toothaches, infections, trauma and sensitivity.

  2. Things like losing a filling or crown, or chipping a tooth, usually wouldn’t be classed as emergencies, unless you were experiencing extreme pain.

    However, to prevent further damage and future problems with a tooth in these circumstances, we recommend you contact the practice for advice about how to proceed if you are not due a recall examination.

  3. This depends on your dental emergency, but could involve things like tooth extractions, dressings, advice and information, and pain relief.

  4. We always aim to treat our patients how we’d like to be treated, and a big part of that is helping with managing pain and ensuring you feel comfortable during your treatment. For some injuries and infections, over-the-counter medicines might be all that you need to manage pain.

  5. Please contact our practice during normal opening hours. If you have a genuine emergency, we will book an appointment with one of our dentists as soon as possible. We can often provide same-day appointments too (subject to availability).

    Please note, prior to offering you an appointment we will ask a series of questions (known as triage) to ascertain your current condition and the urgency in which you require care.

  6. If you are in genuine tooth pain and discomfort, please call the practice immediately. If this is out of normal opening hours, a member of the team will contact you as soon as we re-open to carry out a triage call.

    As the practice can be very busy at the start of the day and emergency appointments are in high demand, please ensure you are available to answer our call to give you the best chance of receiving care from us.

  7. The NHS is under immense pressure at the moment. We cannot say whether you should or should not visit your local A&E but we would suggest if you are in pain; take painkillers to ease symptoms, call the practice and wait for us to get back in touch with you. We will call as soon as we can.

    If you are experiencing severe pain, heavy bleeding and/or injury to the face, mouth or teeth, it is recommended that you contact NHS 111 for assistance.

    You can find more information on the NHS website here

  8. Our emergency appointment fee is between £100 and £200, depending on whether you are a registered or non-registered patient. However, for our Denplan patients, there is no charge for this service.

    The purpose of the emergency appointment is to diagnose root cause of your discomfort and apply care or treatment that will help take you out of immediate pain and/or prevent further infection and discomfort.

    Subsequent treatment will be proposed by your dentist including a treatment plan and associated costs.
