Dental Emergency and Toothache
If you have a dental emergency or toothache, we aim to offer you treatment within 24 hours on our normal working days.
We keep dedicated slots available daily. These are allocated on the day, on a first-come, first-served basis. Please call 0191 286 3398 and our reception team will assist you.
Out Of Hours:
When the surgery is closed, you may need urgent treatment if you have:
Toothache or swelling that suggests an infection of a tooth or gum
Severe toothache or facial pain which is not controlled by taking over-the-counter painkillers
Trauma of the face, mouth or teeth after a recent accident or injury
A permanent tooth knocked out
Bleeding after tooth extraction that you cannot control
Serious swelling of the mouth or face which is getting worse
Please call the Emergency Phone on 0759 615 4619 for advice. If the dentist does need to come and open the surgery out of normal working hours, there will be a £100 call-out fee for Private registered clients.
NHS clients, please call 111, when the surgery is closed.
Please note: You should use the NHS 111 service if:
you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life-threatening, 999 emergency
you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP or dentist
you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies call 999
