We have a limited capacity for NHS or private patients.

At this emergency appointment, the dentist will gather information from you regarding the background of the problem which has arisen, and may take x-rays, photos, or impressions.

If the dentist is able to conduct the treatment within the allocated time of the emergency appointment, they will inform you of this and attempt to do so (such as temporary fillings, simple denture adjustments, simple dressings). Charges apply for dental services.

If the agreed treatment plan requires a longer appointment (for example root canal treatment, extractions), the dentist will advise you of this and book you in for treatment at the earliest available appointment.

Dentists do not prescribe antibiotics routinely, unless in specific situations, in accordance with national guidelines. This is done to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance, which can result in antibiotics not working well for you if you were to have a serious infection in the future.
