What do you do when you have a Dental Emergency?

In first instance call Leigh Dental Centre on 01702 472 929 to arrange an appointment immediately.

Dental emergencies are sometimes inevitable. You may need an emergency dental treatment if you have;

• severe inflammation of the mouth or face which is getting worse

• bleeding after tooth extraction which you cannot control

• severe toothache or facial pain which is not controlled by taking over-the-counter painkillers

• trauma of the face, mouth or teeth after a recent accident or injury

• toothache or swelling that suggests an infection of a tooth or gum

• A permanent tooth being knocked out.

Our experienced dentist can deal with most emergency treatments in one appointment. However, if more than one visit is required we will arrange a follow up visit immediately for you.

If you have a problem out of hours please still call the surgery on 01702 472 929 and there will be a message on the answer phone of how you can receive emergency treatment.

All our Denplan patients have this service covered under their Denplan Supplementary insurance. For Private patients there will be a call out charge and any treatment charged on top of this.

For Denplan patients who are away from home. Please contact the Denplan Emergency line on 0800 844999 if within the UK or +44(0)1962 844999 if abroad. Denplan will then help to find you a suitable dentist within the local area to help you.
