Experiencing dental discomfort or pain?
Whether you’ve got toothache or a broken filling, we understand that accidents happen. Dental emergencies can involve a range of scenarios: accidents involving your mouth or teeth can result in cracks, chips, fractures or a knocked-out tooth; or an emergency could cause general toothache, jaw pain, infections, bleeding or swelling.
When a dental emergency occurs, it’s important to seek treatment from a qualified dentist. Not only will this increase the chance of saving your tooth (or teeth) but you’ll prevent infections from spreading or becoming more serious.
Working hard to accommodate patients seeking immediate treatment, our staff will try their best to minimise waiting times. Wherever possible, we endeavour to see our regular patients who are in pain within 24 hours. But emergency appointments are available everyday for all - whether you are a member of not.
Our staff will deal with your emergency quickly and efficiently. We'll relieve your dental discomfort, plus perform diagnostic tests such as X-rays to determine the source of the pain. Following examination, Mr Vaughan will recommend appropriate dental treatment.
