Emergency Dentist Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is classed as a dental emergency?

    You will need to book an emergency dentist if you are experiencing severe pain, bleeding and/or sensitivity. A lost or broken tooth will also require emergency dental care. In addition, emergency dental treatment should also be sought for an infection or abscess; facial trauma or swelling.

  2. When should you see an emergency dentist?

    It’s important to get in touch with us as soon as a dental emergency arises, to ensure the best possible outcome. We offer same-day appointments where possible. Our private emergency dentist can also carry out a FREE virtual consultation to help determine whether you need emergency care and how we can help your situation.

  3. Do I have to be registered with Town House to book an emergency dentist appointment?

    No, we can offer you urgent dental care whether you are a registered member of our practice or not.

  5. What does an emergency dentist do?

    Our emergency dental services cover a number of scenarios. We aim to provide pain relief and can also perform an emergency tooth extraction if necessary. In the case of a tooth that has been knocked out, we can provide re-insertion or ‘secure’ your teeth for a future follow-up. We can also refer you onward to specialist medical and dental services.

  6. How quickly can you get an emergency dentist appointment?

    We offer same day emergency appointments at both Tunbridge Wells and Brighton and Hove. These are available on a ‘first come, first served basis’ and can only be booked on the day. We would recommend you call your local Town House Dental Practice once we open at 8am to secure your same day dental emergency appointment.

  7. Is severe tooth pain an emergency?

    Yes, we would recommend seeing us for a dental emergency if you are experiencing sever tooth pain. If your pain is severe and you cannot be seen the same day, we would recommend you call 111 for advice.

  8. Can I go to A&E with a tooth problem?

    We would recommend you call 111 if you are experiencing severe tooth ache and they will be able to refer you to either A&E or your nearest available emergency dentist.

  9. Is a loose tooth a dental emergency?

    Yes, loosing a tooth is a dental emergency. If you tooth was lost due to trauma, we would recommend you are seen as soon as possible to assess your overall oral health and to access if your tooth can be put back or if an implant or bridge is needed.

    “Always nice when you meet a professional you will use for life. Peter understood I would be an anxious patient and made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole process. Will always use this practice from now on.”

    Josh Bland

    “After contacting with an emergency I was impressed with the speed and caring attitude of Mr Peter Bell. He opened the practice for me and brought in a very able and well trained assistant to ensure I received the highest level of treatment. The rebuild my molar was done with speed and efficiency and all in calm surroundings and a caring approach. I’d like to thank his experienced and capable assistant for being there for me under the circumstances and with the Covid-19 epidemic making life more difficult to access this kind of rapid & expert response. Thank you, I will be using you in the future and would recommend your Practice.”

    “I broke a tooth and was seen the same day, quick professional service. Thank you I can eat now..”

    John Cooper

    “5 stars from start to finish! I had both a tooth extraction and an implant placed and the whole experience was made to be as stress and pain free as possible. Delighted with the results and couldn’t ask for better treatment.”

    Rachel Venter

    “Great service and dentists!! I’ve visited the Town House Dental Practice twice now as an emergency patient as I live mostly in London and managed to get appointments straight away on the day. The reception and management staff has been super friendly, professional and helpful. Thank you Sam for rearranging my appointments and putting up with my bad cellular service when chatting on the phone. I’ve seen John Krinos and Peter Bell to repair temporary crowns who have both been excellent! I also had a very good detailed chat with Peter about some further dental work and was impressed by his knowledge and attention to detail. I would definitely recommend the Townhouse Dental Practice to anyone living in the area or as an emergency dentist for out-of-towners. I’d also recommend not eating Cadbury’s Finger of Fudge chocolate with temporary crowns!! ;-)”
