Emergency Dentist Coventry

At Holbrooks Dental Care, we offer same-day emergency appointments as we appreciate that emergencies are never planned, can be very discomforting and stressful situations. Just get in touch at your earliest convenience and our caring reception team will accommodate you as soon as possible.

If your emergency needs to be seen outside of our surgery hours, please call 024 7636 6115 and listen to the answer machine for details of our on-call dentist.

The occurrence of many common emergencies can be reduced by maintaining regular check-ups and keeping on top of your dental health between visits.

  • Painkillers such as paracetamol are recommended to tackle the pain, although please ensure to not exceed the maximum dose and seek advice if you are unsure about any medications.

    We recommend that you contact us immediately to arrange an appointment so we can determine and treat the cause of the pain.

  • Swellings are typically caused by infections, so we advise contacting us as soon as possible for treatment or further advice.

  • Avoid particularly hot or cold foods and biting on the affected side. Paracetemol may assist with the pain. Contact us to arrange an appointment, where we’ll aim to fix the tooth or make it comfortable until a permanent repair can be conducted.

  • Please contact us immediately and wherever possible keep the crown safe. It may be re-applied by a dentist.

  • Broken dentures can usually be repaired relatively easily. Please do not try and repair it yourself. Contact us to organise a professional repair.
