Emergency and out of office hours treatment

Most of the time our teeth and gums are healthy and don’t require any treatment. If problems do arise then we can usually contact our local dentist.
This is fine if you are registered with a dentist, but if you’re not then you may have to resort to emergency measures. This can mean contacting your nearest dental clinic and obtaining an appointment via their emergency service. This is usually an ‘out of hours’ service which is designed to cater for the unexpected, such as toothache or an abscess.
