There are various problems that can cause toothache, but the most common is a dental infection. Often toothache creeps up on us slowly, eventually going from manageable to a level of pain that’s quite distracting. Although it can be tempting to manage a toothache with painkillers, this can actually mask that the problem is getting worse and gives the infection time to spread. At the first sign of toothache, arrange an appointment so that we can treat the potential infection.
We understand that it is not possible to plan for dental emergencies, which is why we make sure that we have an emergency appointment available every day. You do not have to be a patient at our private practice. For an emergency appointment, call us on 01606 75615.
Everyone’s perception of what makes a dental emergency is slightly different – you might:
- Be in pain
- Have damaged a tooth or restoration
- Be having problems with your speech because of a dental problem
- Have a dental issue that’s affected your appearance
- Have concerns or worries that you don’t feel can wait
Whatever your needs, we aim to give you the advice, support or treatment you need when you need it. To arrange an emergency appointment with Dr Peter Young, simply call us on 01606 75615.
If you need emergency dental attention outside of our clinic opening hours, a message on the practice answerphone will give you details of how to access dental services. Our emergency dental fees are £50 for a 20 minute appointment. This includes the cost of any X-Rays required. As with other appointments, we will give you a full emergency dental plan and quotation, and carry out emergency dental treatment on the same day whenever possible.
