Arranging an emergency appointment

When you arrive for your appointment, you can take a seat and tell your dentist what happened. The injured area will then be carefully examined and your dentist will decide if you need an x-ray to observe the extent of the damage done.

During your appointment, further pain needn’t be a worry. If the injury is intense, you can opt for a local anaesthetic. To avoid the possibility of infection, the affected area will be sterilised. Your damaged teeth can then be treated and they can either be preserved or extracted, depending on the severity of your case. In the case of extraction, we can discuss the possible implant treatments that we offer.
