Emergency care

Sudden dental pain, a cracked tooth, a loose filling, a sports injury? There may be a time when you need to see a dentist in an emergency. At Contemporary Dental we go out of our way to ensure our patients have the opportunity to see one of our highly skilled dentists on the same day.

We reserve a number of appointments every day so you have peace of mind should a dental emergency arise. We offer quick and convenient appointments to resolve your problem because the faster we can resolve the problem and relieve your pain the better.

We also offer non-registered patients emergency appointments which can be booked online or by calling 01392 490949.

If you get in touch with us for emergency appointment, we aim to:

  • see you on the day that you contact us
  • relieve your pain quickly
  • diagnose your problem
  • discuss all available treatment options.

Emergency costs and insurance

Because each emergency is different it’s hard for us to give you a cost before we see the extent of the damage. Some problems might be resolved with a course of antibiotics whereas others will need a full dental restoration.

In an emergency the priority is to see your dentist as soon as possible. Once we’ve assessed the problem and made you comfortable we can advise you on costs and treatment options. If you have dental insurance, we’ll provide you with everything you need to make a claim.
