FAQs

Are you registering new patients?

We only really see dental emergencies, and we always send patients back to their own registered dentist. Most dentists would be upset if we were to register the patients we have seen out of hours.

If you don’t have a dentist and want to be seen the dentist will still be able to treat any further issues however we don’t operate as normal dental practices and request you are seen every 6 months. Any time you want to book an appointment to see one of the dentists you can do so any time. Call Sarah on 07415 849 849 and she will book you in. The responsibility lies with you as when you want to be seen.

Some home methods to treat tooth if you cant access a dentist

Try over the counter painkillers like paracetamol or ibuprofen. Only take the medications if you are normally ok taking them. Occasionally it will reduce the pain slightly until you can get to the dentist. This is only a temporary measure but sometimes it helps if you have no other alternative.

Hot salt water mouth washes are very useful if you have a swelling or some sort of infection. Salt water is a natural anti septic and can reduce pain.

Why is tooth ache worse at night time?

Many people suffer with dental pain at night time. A lot of the time the pain makes it unbearable to sleep. A lot of pain at night time is due to the position of you lying down, blood rushing to the head and the pain or swelling inside the tooth increase.

Before getting to this level of pain we always advise a visit to the dentist so to avoid such dilemmas. The dentist will take x rays and check which tooth is causing the pain. So many times the pain spreads top and bottom unable to locate the pain. Thus the x ray is one of the best tests to elicit where the pain is coming from.

If I go to A and E with tooth ache will they treat me?

Unfortunately, toothache is not classed as an emergency or an accident and as it is not life-threatening, they will not be able to treat you.

If you have facial swelling that is affecting your ability to breathe then we advise you to go to A and E.

How to get emergency dental treatment on the NHS?

If you are registered with an NHS dentist you may be able to get a dentist appointment at your own dentist, however it may not be on the same day. Dental practices generally close at 5 pm so to get an NHS emergency dentist appointment may be difficult.

Out of hours NHS do provide emergency appointments but have very strict criteria such as persistent bleeding and unable to breathe or swallow due to swelling.

If this is the case your NHS dentist should have an alternate local number for you to call in the case of emergency.

Night and Day Emergency Dentist provides private treatment and promises to see you on the same day. You can contact one of the reception staff members on 07415 849 849 and get an appointment immediately.
