What is a dental emergency?

At Arrowe Park Dental Practice we always try to set aside some time each day to treat patients with dental emergencies, but what is an emergency?

Pain – severe or constant toothache or associated with any of the following:
Swelling – facial or neck swelling, moderate or large swellings with or without pain
Trauma – a blow to the face or mouth which has resulted in broken teeth or damage to tissues of the mouth
Bleeding – uncontrollable bleeding following extractions or trauma

What if you need to see a dentist urgently?

The first thing you should always do if you have a dental emergency during working hours is phone the Practice number 0151 677 3703 and qualified nurses on reception will assess the urgency of your problem and find you the next appropriate appointment.

If Arrowe Park Dental Practice is closed the answer machine will give you details for Denplan and NHS patients.
