If you have a dental emergency, please call our Church Street dental practice on 01273 453229 to book an appointment. We allocate time every day for emergencies but these slots do get booked up, so we advise getting in touch as early as possible.
We offer a same day service for all dental emergencies from toothache, to lost or broken crowns, chipped teeth and fillings, to abscesses, trauma and a swollen face. We can take care of your injuries to ensure you heal quicker and more effectively and this will help you avoid additional dental problems in the future.
If you’ve chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or an injury, it can be a traumatic experience. It’s very important that you see your dentist immediately, even if the tooth is just slightly chipped.
Your dentist will be able to smooth down the uneven edge of a chipped tooth and replace the missing part with a tooth-coloured filling. Broken back molars may need to be replaced with a crown.
If you have knocked out a tooth or several teeth, the sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better because there is a chance the teeth could be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.
Keep the knocked-out tooth clean and avoid handling the root. In some cases you may be able to put the tooth back into the socket and bite down on a clean paper towel for around 15-20 minutes.
