What to do on a

Week days Please ring the practice as soon as is possible. We allocate these on a first come first serve basis

Weekends and Holidays. We offer an on call system for all our private and denplan patients. We are open on a Saturday till 12.30pm. On Sundays/bank holidays the messages are checked at 12 and 2pm only. Any messages left after this time will not be heard. You must therefore wait until the following day

Denplan/private patients

DenplanDenplan is the UK's leading dental health care company. With Denplan Care your fixed monthly payments help you to budget for regular, affordable preventive dental care, without the fear of costly and unexpected bills. The support that Denplan Practice Teams receive from Denplan, means that they can spend more time with individual patients and concentrate on developing a good oral health routine.

NHS patients

NHS patients will need to ring NHS direct on 0845 46 47. They will then assess you to see if you need to see a dentist. If this is the case then you will be given a number to ring.



Fractured/broken tooth

Injuries to the mouth may include teeth that are knocked out (avulsed), forced out of position (extruded) or broken (fractured). Sometimes lips, gums or cheeks have cuts. Oral injuries are often painful, and should be treated by a dentist as soon as possible.

Avulsed teeth

When a tooth is knocked out you should:

  • Immediately call your dentist for an emergency appointment.
  • Attempt to find the tooth.
  • Gently rinse, but do not scrub the tooth to remove dirt or debris.
  • Place the clean tooth in your mouth between the cheek and gum.
  • Do not attempt to replace the tooth into the socket. This could cause further damage.
  • Get to the dentist as soon as possible. If it is within a half hour of the injury, it may be possible to re-implant the tooth.
  • If it is not possible to store the tooth in the mouth of the injured person, (e.g. young child) wrap the tooth in a clean cloth or gauze and immerse in milk.

Extruded teeth

If the tooth is pushed out of place (inward or outward), it should be repositioned to its normal alignment with very light finger pressure. Do not force the tooth into the socket. Hold the tooth in place with a moist tissue or gauze. Again, it is vital that a dentist see the injured individual within 30 minutes.

How a fractured tooth is treated will depend on how badly it is broken. Regardless of the damage, a dentist should always determine treatment.

Minor Fracture

Minor fractures can be smoothed by your dentist with a sandpaper disc or simply left alone. Another option is to restore the tooth with a composite restoration. In either case, you should treat the tooth with care for several days.

Moderate Fracture

Moderate fractures include damage to the enamel, dentin, and/or pulp. If the pulp is not permanently damaged, the tooth may be restored with a full permanent crown. If damage to the pulp does occur further dental treatment will be required.

Severe Fracture

Severe fractures often mean a traumatized tooth with a slim chance of recovery.

Injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth

Injuries to the inside of the mouth include tears, puncture wounds and lacerations to the cheek, lips or tongue. The wound should be cleaned right away and the injured person taken to the emergency room for the necessary suturing and wound repair.

Bleeding from a tongue laceration can be reduced by pulling the tongue forward and using gauze to place pressure on the wound area
