The practice is in the heart of Bewdley, and can be easily accessed for dental emergencies from local towns Kidderminster, Stourport on Severn, Wolverley, Bridgnorth, Stourbridge and surrounding areas in Worcestershire. We do also have two sister dental practices. Malvern Hills Dental Care and the other Anchor Road Dental Practice Walsall where we also offer emergency dental appointments.
Unfortunately a dental emergency can happen at anytime without any warning. Here at Bewdley Dental Practice we set aside a number of appointments each day specifically for dental emergencies. These appointments are limited and as a result get booked quite quickly. If you are experiencing pain or have a dental emergency we advise you to contact the practice to book an emergency appointment as soon as possible.
If your dental emergency is out of hours please call 111 for help and advice.
If you have lost or broken a filling it is important to see a dentist to have the filling replaced to help prevent any sensitivity and decay that may occur if left untreated. The dentist may place a temporary dressing at the emergency dental appointment, and request another appointment for you if more time is needed for your treatment.
Broken or fractured teeth
If a tooth breaks we advise you to book a dental appointment as soon as possible, especially if the tooth is causing pain. The fractured tooth may also cause your tongue to become sore if there are any sharp edges present. You may find it best to avoid anything particularly hot or cold if it becomes temperature sensitive.
Swelling or Abscess
If you are experiencing facial swelling it is important that you seek emergency dental advice and treatment as soon as possible, as these are usually signs of an infection. Swelling can also occur after a dental trauma so please book an appointment for assessment.
Accidental dental trauma
Chipped, broken teeth or in severe cases teeth can be knocked out or become mobile after a fall or sport related injury. Swelling may also occur. It is advisable to seek help from a dentist as quickly as possible after a dental trauma.
If you have unfortunately lost a crown or bridge, please keep it in a safe place and take it with you to the appointment so that if possible it can be re-cemented for you. We DO NOT advise the use of glue or cement to replace at home.
If you have a broken denture it may be possible for our in house technician to repair it whilst you wait. Prices for a repair with our technician start from £30.00 upwards. Please refrain from continuing to wear the broken denture as it may result in further damage and it may also cause trauma to the soft tissues within your mouth.
Any sudden, severe pain or constant discomfort we advise you to book an emergency dental appointment to uncover and treat the cause, which will resolve the issue leaving you pain free.
