It is useful to know what constitutes a dental emergency:

Serious Pain

Should you suffer from serious dental pain it is important to seek qualified dental advice as this pain can signify a dental infection or other problem which will require prompt treatment.


An apparent swelling affecting your mouth, face or neck should be examined promptly by your dentist. Often a swelling can be caused by an underlying dental infection and may be accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, redness, fever or a general feeling of being unwell.


Should you be involved in an incident that causes an injury to your mouth or teeth it is important to obtain the opinion of your dentist as soon as possible.

Please note: the above information is not comprehensive and you should contact your practice immediately if you have any concerns.

Out of practice hours you should contact NHS 24 on: 08454 24 24 24.
