From time to time, you may experience pain or discomfort from a dental problem. Here at Newport Pagnell Dental Clinic, it’s our intention to alleviate these symptoms for you as quickly as possible.
Our normal practice hours are:
Outside of these hours, we use Milton Keynes Out of Hours Emergency Treatment Service to help patients who are experiencing any of the following symptoms only:
- Facial Swelling
- Trauma (blow to the mouth, bleeding, swelling)
- Bleeding excessively from a recently extracted socket
- Ulcer has not healed within 2 weeks
- Excessive tooth ache that cannot be managed with regular pain relief medication
The telephone number for emergency out of hours dental treatment is 111. Please note that as this is an emergency service, you will only be given an appointment if you meet the criteria above.
Other dental problems, which may present you with discomfort and manageable pain, do not normally require urgent emergency medical treatment. If you have toothache, we recommend you use a regular pain relief medication and continually rinse around the problem area with medicated mouth wash or salt water solution until you can see the Dentist. Try to keep the area free from food debris and limit chewing on this side of your mouth.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, please call the practice and leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as the practice re-opens to arrange an immediate appointment for you:
- Toothache – no swelling
- Denture Ease (rubbing or pain)
- Lost Crowns
- Lost fillings – No pain
- Denture Repairs
- Broken Teeth – No pain
Please note that there is normally a fee of £35 for private emergency appointments on the day. This is because we have to fit in extra appointments to what is normally a very full day. However, if you are prepared to wait until the following day for an appointment, there is no fee.
