What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency can be traumatic and distressing. If you have a dental emergency, rest assured we aim to see you as soon as possible.

  • A constant, nagging toothache
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • An abscess
  • Lost crowns or fillings
  • A chipped tooth

If you are in pain or suffering from any type of dental emergency, please contact our surgery and we will book you in to see the emergency dentist as soon as possible.

Booking an Emergency Dental Appointment in Styvechale

With a dental emergency, timing is critical; it can mean the difference in saving a knocked-out tooth. Once you are safe and able to do so, please call us for an emergency dental appointment. If you are shaken up or feeling unwell, ask a friend or family member to make the call for you.

We aim to see patients with a dental emergency as soon as possible. The earlier you call us, the quicker we can arrange for you to see the emergency dentist.

If you have a dental emergency outside of our usual opening hours, please phone 111 who are available until 9.30pm every day, and from 8am until 9.30pm on weekends and bank holidays.

Advice For Common Dental Emergencies in Coventry

Here is some advice for some of the more common dental emergencies:

Knocked-out tooth

Knocked out teeth usually occur because of a fall or from an accident. Please visit A&E if you have sustained any serious injuries or if you are bleeding heavily from your mouth or face. If you still have the knocked-out tooth, being able to save it and re-insert it into the gum is time critical, so call the dental surgery for an emergency appointment as soon as you can. Hold your knocked-out tooth by the crown, never by the root and it is important not to let the tooth dry out. You can either keep the tooth in a cup of cold milk or keep it in your mouth whilst you wait to see the emergency dentist.


Relentless toothache can be excruciating. Take paracetamol for the pain or take Ibuprofen if you have any swelling but remember to follow the instructions on the packet. Rinsing your mouth in salty water can also help ease the pain. Call our dental surgery for an emergency appointment and avoid drinking anything that is too hot or too cold whilst you wait to see the emergency dentist.

Dental Abscess

A dental abscess is a bacterial infection that causes pus to build up in the tooth, gum or jaw. This may result in a severe throbbing toothache or a pain that extends to your jawbone, neck or ear. It can mean that you are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. If you suspect that you have a dental abscess, please call us as soon as possible so that we can book you in for a dental emergency appointment. We will check that the infection has not spread anywhere else in your body and will drain the pus. Take painkillers to deal with any pain, noting the instructions on the packet. Rinsing your mouth with salty water can alleviate the pain too.
