    When you have toothache it is important to contact the practice as soon as possible

    If you need emergency treatment and have no other alternative we will be happy to assist you and try to fit you in on the day.Our practice provides an emergency service in-or -out of hours for our registered patient at no cost and non-registered patient (will have to pay and emergency fee). We are more than happy to except referrals from other dental professionals and organisations. Patients who are nervous or anxious are made to feel relaxed prior to treatment and our after care involves staying in contact with the patient.


    IF YOU HAVE TOOTH ACHE YOU MAY NEED ROOT TREATMENT OR SOMETIMES EXTRACTION OF YOUR TOOTH. YOU MAY NEED A PRESCRIPTION FIRST.

    Why would I need root canal treatment?If the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system to the surrounding area which may eventually lead to an abscess and swelling. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may eventually need to be taken out.Does it hurt?No. We use a topical gel that makes your gum numb before the local anaesthetic makes the tooth and nerv complete numb. The local anaesthetic is used and it should feel no different to having an ordinary filling done.What does it involve?The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.At the first appointment, the infected pulp is removed. Any abscesses, which may be present, can also be drained at this time. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped ready for the filling. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle.The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.To keep your mouth in tip top shape we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check ups.
