Due to the current situation the surgery will be open mornings only –
Monday – Friday 8.45am – 12.45pm
This will be for patients with outstanding treatment or patients with a dental problem or emergency. We are currently not offering appointments for routine inspections.
Please contact us on 02380 702007 if you would like to make an appointment as we are currently seeing patients by prior appointment only.
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.
