Getting emergency dental care when not registered

From eating to speaking to simply smiling and laughing, we rely on our teeth to do many activities that we often take for granted every day. 

If something were to suddenly go wrong with your teeth, this could affect your ability to go about your daily life – causing problems ranging from self-consciousness to severe pain.

Dental problems can develop at any time, as inconvenient and distressing as they can be – which is why most dentists offer emergency appointments.

However, it can be difficult to get a same-day dentist appointment if you aren’t already registered with a practice – so what can you do if you need to see a dentist ASAP?

Here is a quick guide on how to see an emergency dentist when not registered.

 

What’s considered emergency dental care?

Emergency dental care is required if the patient has severely damaged a tooth (or multiple teeth), or if they are experiencing symptoms that could indicate a more serious underlying problem, such as an infection that could spread from the mouth through the body.

A mostly cosmetic concern such as a minor chip or crack in a tooth may not be classified as an emergency, unless it is causing significant discomfort. However, if you are experiencing severe toothache, inflamed gums, excessive bleeding, facial swelling, or numbness, these are signs you need to see an emergency dentist.

If teeth are knocked out or damaged as a result of a traumatic impact injury to the face or head, it’s likely that you should go to your nearest hospital’s A&E unit first, as head injuries can be very serious and need to be examined by a doctor immediately. 

Before you start trying to find an emergency dentist, you may want to call 111 (the NHS helpline) for advice on whether your symptoms require going to the hospital, your GP, or a dentist for assessment and treatment. 

 

Where can I go for emergency dentist treatment?

Whether your dental concern has gradually gotten worse over time or something has happened out of the blue, it’s best to see a dentist as soon as you can. It’s unlikely that a dental problem will go away by itself, as it will only get worse without treatment. 

If you’re searching for an emergency dentist in Warrington, you’re in the right place. At Dental Solutions, we provide emergency dental services for patients in need throughout Cheshire, offering a limited number of emergency dentist appointments each day.

Please contact us if you are suffering from pain in your teeth and gums or if you have broken a tooth, and we will do our utmost to get you booked in to see our emergency dentist.

Depending on the urgency of your dental problem, we may recommend waiting for the next available routine appointment – but in all cases, we aim to assess your dental situation as quickly as possible to resolve your pain and restore your oral health.

 

How much is an emergency dentist appointment?

It’s important to note that if you need a last-minute appointment, the price will start at £85 for the visit itself, plus the cost of any required treatments. From fillings and restorations to extractions and root canals, you can click to view our private fees.

This is where it pays to be a registered member with our practice, as patients who sign up for a dental plan with us have the cost of an emergency dentist visit included, plus discounts on the cost of selected dental treatments.

However, our team of experts provide the same high-quality level of care to all patients, even if you come to see our emergency dentist when not registered.

If acute or chronic pain in your teeth, gums, or jaw is disrupting your life, or sudden damage to or loss of teeth needs rectifying right away, please call Dental Solutions on 01925 756 565 to arrange an emergency dentist visit.

Our friendly and skilled dentists will do all that we can to reduce your pain, diagnose the problem, and carry out any necessary treatment as efficiently as possible.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
