How Much Does An Emergency Dentist Cost?
There are few things in life more frightening than a dental emergency – whether losing a tooth, damaging a tooth or dealing with pain or swelling. Thankfully, our expert emergency dentists can step in if and when an emergency does strike, giving you comfort and peace of mind, whatever the situation.
So, how much does it all cost?
Cost is always a concern for our patients. While in our opinion, you can’t really put a price on your dental health, we do recognise that knowing what the costs are in advance can help settle your mind. At the time of writing (December 2020), our emergency dentist service is charged from £70, depending on your requirements.
How do I know if I need an emergency dentist?
A dental emergency is usually classified as having a loose or lost tooth, severe pain, bleeding or infection, and/or swelling and fever. If it’s a case of a missing or broken filling or a chipped tooth, this usually isn’t counted as an emergency. However, if there is pain, it’s essential you get in touch with us.
When can I get an appointment?
Alongside our normal opening hours, we also offer slots in the morning and evening, and on Saturdays. We know it’s important to have a dentist you can rely on when an emergency strikes, and do our best to be available beyond typical office hours where we can.
What happens in my appointment?
During a visit to the emergency dentist, we carry out a full assessment, prescribe pain relief where needed, and help stabilise your condition to the point that we can book you in for a follow-up appointment or refer you to a specialist.
How can I prevent a dental emergency?
Here are a few suggestions of ways to help prevent an emergency:
- Always wear mouth guards when playing sports, to prevent chipped or broken teeth
- Attend regular check-ups to keep an eye on any dental work, like fillings
- Ensure you have a good dental routine, to prevent decay and associated infection
