Private and Denplan Patients

Private and Denplan patients requiring emergency dental treatment should contact the practice where we aim to offer an appointment on the same day.

We also offer an out-of-hours emergency service which includes telephone advice on weekday nights and an emergency on-call service to cover weekends and bank holidays.  Please contact (01629) 812991 for further details.

NHS Patients

Wherever possible we will endeavour to see NHS patients requiring emergency treatment.

However, if no NHS appointments are available, emergencies will be directed to the Emergency Dental Service in Chesterfield.

Suggested regimes for pain relief for healthy adults
  • Ibuprofen:  Take 200-400mg every 4 hours
    Ibuprofen maximum dose is 3200mg in any 24 hours
  • Paracetamol: Take 2 x 500mg every 4-6 hours
    Paracetamol maximum dose is 4000mg in any 24 hours

In cases of severe pain it is safe to take the maximum dose of Ibuprofen and Paracetamol together.

These drugs should be taken with plenty of water and preferably food.

If you are unable to take Ibuprofen we recommend Paracetamol on its own.

Codeine doesn’t provide very good pain relief for dental pain.
