Oral Conditions We Can Help You With
Our team of dental experts are equipped to handle any oral emergency you may be facing
Toothache can be caused by all sorts of problems from shock traumas to prolonged issues like tooth decay.
As such, we take every patient on a case-by-case basis, giving you a tailored treatment that results in pain-relief as quickly as possible.
In most cases, broken teeth can be repaired the same day by one of our dentists during your appointment.
During your appointment, we will re-fit the crown allowing it to return to stability and normality.
If you’ve noticed blood when brushing your teeth, then you have what is known as gum disease; this is caused by a build up of plaque.
Don’t worry though, it’s usually pretty simple to fix. Our dental team will help you remove the plaque with a thorough clean and give you advice on how to make sure it does not build up again in the same way.
Missing fillings are easily to spot; you’re eating some food and realise that something in your mouth is harder than normal. Once you spit it out, your tongue quickly notices the change in your mouth and begins to prod the sensitive area. Pressure, temperature and even air can make it feel painful.
During your appointment, we’ll replace the missing filling, getting rid of that unpleasant sensation which will allow you to feel normal again.
It’s not uncommon for an orthodontic wire or bracket to break during treatment. While it’s uncomfortable and can result in cuts, there’s nothing to panic about as they are easy to fix.
Our team can remove the source of pain immediately, giving you time to book in and see your Dentist/Orthodontist to continue treatment.
A dental abscess is a collection of pus that can form inside the teeth, the gums or in the bone that holds the teeth in place and is caused by a bacterial infection. It’s important to get help as soon as possible, as abscesses do not go away on their own.
By draining the pus away, the abscess can quickly be reduced. However, if it is particularly large, you may also need antibiotics to help clear it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Got questions to ask before you book in? We’ve listed the most common ones right here…
What is a dental emergency?
The NHS only classifies abscesses, knocked-out teeth and severe bleeding as being dental emergencies. As such, there are many people who are in urgent need of dental help that fall outside of these categories.
To us, any oral health problem that is causing significant levels of discomfort or pain can be deemed a dental emergency. We aim to help you overcome those problems as quickly as possible so that you can return to your normal routine.
How do I book an appointment?
Booking an emergency appointment is easy. Just click here or call our team on 0141 339 0873.
Are dental x-rays dangerous?
No, a couple of dental x-rays are equivalent to receiving background radiation from walking around the earth and it’s certainly a lot less than the radiation received from getting on an aeroplane!
We limit taking dental x-rays to only when it is absolutely necessary and there is no need to wear a lead apron or any other radiation protection device.
Pregnant patients: although guidelines state that dental x-rays can be safely taken for pregnant patients, we avoid it unless urgent.
Why are my gums bleeding?
It would be impossible to say precisely why your gums are bleeding without looking in your mouth. However, typically bleeding gums are caused by one of the following:
- Brushing too hard
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy
- Ill-fitting dentures or braces
- Improper flossing
- Infection, which can be either in a tooth or the gum
- Leukemia, a type of blood cancer
- Scurvy, a vitamin C deficiency
- Use of blood thinners
- Vitamin K deficiency
To make sure you get the right solution to your bleeding gums, we’d recommend booking an appointment with one of our dentists.
I have sensitive teeth, what should I do?
The most common causes of sensitivity are receding gums due to incorrect brushing technique and tooth decay.
Our dentists can examine your teeth and confirm the cause of the sensitivity and our hygiene therapists will be able to explain and demonstrate the correct techniques so these problems don’t occur again.
Will I be in pain after a tooth extraction?
In cases where teeth need to be removed, we do our utmost to reduce the pain you experience during and after your treatment. Prior to extraction, a local anaesthetic will be applied, numbing the area and stopping you from feeling anything in the area that is being worked upon.
The anaesthetic will continue to work for around 24 hours, at which point you may have some mild discomfort. This can be reduced by consuming softer foods like soup and yogurt.
Can I eat before a dental treatment?
It’s a common myth that you should avoid eating prior to a dental visit. The truth is though, there’s no harm in having a snack prior to seeing us. Just make sure to give your teeth a floss and brush afterwards.
I’m scared of the dentist, what should I do?
We’ve gone to great lengths to make sure that our practice provides a comfortable experience for all our patients. If you have a look at our many reviews, you’ll notice how often they mention our friendly team!
What is plaque?
Plaque is the sticky film of bacteria found on your teeth. It’s created when leftover food in your mouth interacts with the bacteria in your mouth.
If you haven’t brushed for a while, you’ll notice a fuzzy sensation when you run your tongue along your teeth.
The reason you want to avoid plaque is that it’s acidic. If left to build up, it will destroy your tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay.
Most plaque can be removed by flossing and brushing, sometimes though it can become hardened and requires a deep clean from a dental hygienist.
What should I do if I knock my tooth out?
If your tooth has been knocked out, it’s important that you act quickly in order to save it. Here’s the steps you should take:
1) Pick up the tooth by the chewing surface and give it a rinse in clean water. Do not use soap or a cloth.
2) Reposition the tooth in your mouth by gently pushing it in with your fingers. If you are at all unsure about this, put the tooth in milk.
3) Call our dental team immediately to get a treatment on 0141 339 0873
Why does my mouth feel dry?
Dry mouth occurs when the salivary glands in your mouth don’t produce enough saliva. This is typically caused by dehydration or anxiety.
The simplest solution is to have a glass of water; not only will this help to rehydrate your body, you’ll calm down too!
What should I do if I lose a filling?
First of all, don’t panic. Although it will feel sensitive and uncomfortable, your tooth is not in major danger. Just book a treatment with our dentists and we’ll re-fill it for you.
In the meantime, we’d recommend that you avoid eating foods that are especially cold, hot, sweet or spicy to prevent further discomfort.
Are emergency dental treatments expensive?
As the NHS doesn’t cover all forms of emergency dental treatment, we do have to charge for treatments.
However, we’ve made sure that are prices are affordable for those in need of urgent care.
How do I remove an objects caught between my teeth?
The simplest way to remove an object from your teeth is with dental floss.
However, if you feel that you feel something is too difficult to remove yourself, our team is happy to help you.
