Dental emergencies can arise at any time. Often the first symptom is pain, and we understand how unpleasant that can be. That’s why do our very best to offer a suitable emergency dental appointment on the same day, for both existing and new patients.
If you need to see an emergency dentist please call us on 01992 800 947, or out of hours call 01992 800947, as soon as your emergency arises. We’ll do our best to find you a suitable appointment on the same day to get you out of pain.
There are many causes of dental emergencies. Dental abscesses can arise suddenly, causing pain and swelling. Accidents and injuries, for example playing sport, can lead to teeth being chipped, broken or knocked out. Occasionally, bridges, braces, crowns, implants and other restorations can break or be damaged just like natural teeth. Whatever the cause of your emergency, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can help.
At Crofts Dental Practice we always reserve some spaces for emergency dental appointments every day, and if you contact us during normal practice opening hours we will attempt to fit you in during these hours. There is no emergency call-out fees for emergency appointments during regular working hours.
For out-of-hours emergencies we have a 24-hour telephone line, and we will assess over the phone whether we need to see you straight away or whether we can book you in to one of our emergency slots the next working day. This will depend on the nature of your emergency.
Whatever your emergency, we will not leave you in pain. You may require further treatment, in which case we will book you in for another appointment at the earliest convenience.
