Same Day Emergencies


At Cheshire Dental Centre, we understand that experiencing dental pain can have a detrimental effect on all areas of life, so we pride ourselves on being able to help anyone who requires a same-day appointment for new or existing patients. Whether or not your symptoms are consistent with a dental emergency you should contact a dentist for advice.

Call our number – 01270 256426 to speak to a member of our team and get booked in.

What we consider a dental emergency are:
Bleeding from the mouth – if the bleeding is uncontrollable we consider this an emergency and would assign a dentist as soon as possible.

Infection – an abscess in the month is extremely serious and we would need to examine your mouth as soon as possible.

Knocked-out tooth – booking an appointment for tooth loss as close to the incident as possible could avoid the tooth loss permanently.

What we would not consider an emergency:
A cracked or chipped tooth is not a dental emergency unless sharp fragments remain in your mouth or you are in severe pain.

Toothache can wait for a general dental appointment when it is not causing severe pain. If you can wait to be seen by a dentist then your toothache may not require an emergency appointment.

A missing crown or filling is not considered a dental emergency however your dentist may see you as a priority and you may be able to be seen sooner than usual.

If you conclude that your situation is not an emergency, you should still contact your dentist.


Depending on your emergency, your dentist will locate and treat the cause of the problem. If you are in severe pain your dentist will be able to diagnose the issue and offer pain relief.

If you have a knocked-out tooth, depending on how soon you are able to get an emergency appointment, your dentist may be able to reinsert the tooth. If your tooth cannot be saved, it can normally be replaced with an implant or bridge. Your dentist will be able to advise on the best course of action during your emergency appointment.

If you have an abscess your dentist will use your emergency appointment to assess the affected area and attempt to remove the abscess. Depending on where the abscess is in your mouth there are a number of ways that your dentist will be able to remove it, including tooth extraction, root cancel and incision and drainage.

Your dentist will be able to diagnose the cause of your pain and offer any treatment. If you need any further treatment, then your dentist will book your next appointment.


Emergency Appointment: £93.50

Any further treatments required will incur further costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a dental emergency and a medical emergency?

A dental emergency applies only to oral health and whilst it may need urgent treatment, it may not necessarily pose a threat to medical health. For instance, a knocked-out tooth is considered a dental emergency because the tooth will need immediate attention to be saved but it is not considered a medical emergency unless you have also experienced trauma to any other part of the body.

A medical emergency is a sudden trauma or symptoms which pose a threat to life and can only be assessed immediately by a doctor.

I have a knocked-out tooth, how do I care for it before my appointment?

As mentioned above, book an emergency appointment as close to the incident as possible. To care for your knock-out tooth in the meantime, clean your tooth with running water being careful not to touch the root. If it is possible, place the tooth back into the socket. If this is not possible, you should place your tooth in a glass of milk until you go to the dentist. This will help to maintain the pH balance of the tooth and preserve any living elements of your knocked-out tooth.
