Surgery hours:

Monday – Thursday – 8.45am – 12.45pm & 2.00pm – 5.30pm

Friday – 8.45am – 12.45pm

For patients registered at this practice with a severe dental emergency outside surgery hours, please telephone 111.

The following procedures may be of help for minor problems:

  • Swelling over wisdom teeth – bathe the area with warm salt water, 4-5 times a day. Eat soft food on the other side of the mouth.
  • Broken fillings – these will not usually cause a problem apart from feeling rough in the mouth or sensitive to hot or cold drinks. Either avoid eating on that side of the mouth or apply a temporary filling available from the pharmacy.
  • Mild to moderate toothache – take paracetamol (if you are able to). Sleeping with an extra pillow at night to raise your head may help.
  • Please note that lost crowns or broken dentures are not regarded as emergencies.
