If you require a dental emergency this festive season and can't find a dentist, we have some tips for you!

  • Apply ice to the cheek around the affected area - This will help to ease any swelling
  • Take a recommended dose of anti inflammatory medication to help the pain (ibuprofen, paracetamol) 
  • Avoid sweet and hard foods!
  • If an adult tooth has come out, try putting the tooth back in place, if unsuccessful, store the tooth in milk - this helps to stop the tooth from drying out.
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken, keep any parts of the teeth that have come out and get in touch with a dentist as soon as possible. 



Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Dear Patients, 

The health and safety of our staff and patients is most important. We have therefore made the difficult decision to temporarily close both practices from Thursday 9th July until 27th September. We will re-open for routine dental treatment including regular dental maintenance under level 2 dental restriction from Monday, 28th September.

Meanwhile for any emergency cases, our front office and dentist will still be taking calls and providing you with the necessary support. 

Take care, stay healthy and safe. Thank you for your patience and we'll see you soon!
