Dental pain that does not respond to anti-inflammatory painkillers requires urgent attention. Even if it is to temporarily get you out of pain by administering local anaesthetic we will do our utmost to see you on the same day. If you have severe dental pain that is unresponsive to anti-inflammatory painkillers such as ibuprofen, please contact us immediately.
Bleeding that does not stop
If you have had an extraction or surgery in your mouth and the bleeding does not stop, please contact us immediately, especially if you are taking any blood thinning medication. (This may include but not be limited to aspirin, clopidogrel or warfarin.)
Swelling or infection especially if accompanied by a raised temperature, difficulty breathing or swallowing
If you have a dental infection that is causing severe swelling or is accompanied by pain, an elevated temperature, difficulty in breathing or swallowing or is making you feel significantly unwell, please contact us immediately.
Trauma, especially to front teeth from sports, an accident
If you have suffered an accident that involves your teeth, please contact us immediately. If possible and safe to do so, please attempt to locate any fractured fragments and bring them with you.
Breakage or loss of filling or crown on a visible tooth
Loss of a dental restoration is obviously inconvenient and can cause discomfort and sensitivity.
If this is one of your front teeth, it is our duty to ensure that you look presentable as soon as possible.
Please contact us immediately.
