Dental emergencies

If you are suffering from a dental emergency, you want to be seen as soon as possible, so that your problem can be resolved quickly and efficiently.

At Derwent Street Dental Practice, we will try to see patients experiencing an unexpected dental problem as soon as we can. Alternately, if we cannot see you straight away, one of our qualified dentists will call you to provide advice to relieve your discomfort.

Unlike traditional scaling and polishing, this system is less abrasive on the dental enamel. Instead, a combination of compressed air, fine powder particles and a jet of water work together to remove deposits from the teeth. Not only does this clean the teeth, it also decreases any discomfort some patients experience during the cleaning process.

Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Sudden onset of dental pain
  • Infection or abscess
  • Breakage of a restoration such as bridge or filling
  • Discomfort caused by an orthodontic appliance
  • Problems with dentures

Whatever the problem, we will try and see you within 24 hours of your call to us.

Where you cannot wait for emergency dental treatment, we can see you out of hours for a charge of £150. However, if you are covered by Denplan, there will be no charge for this visit.

Call 01332 888085 for on-call out of hours emergencies. However, if a problem has arisen within opening hours, please call us on 01773 820478 and we will do all we can to help.
