Dental Treatment


If you require an emergency appointment between Monday and Friday please try and ensure that you telephone us before 10am.

At ADP we make every effort to cater for those patients who have telephoned before 10am on the same day. Appointments for patients who telephone after 10am may be made for the following working day.

Out of hours emergency

NHS England provide a basic emergency dental out of hours service. The service is accessed via the Dental Helpline on 0161 476 9651.

What makes a dental emergency?

As a guide, under the NHS charter:

  • A chipped tooth

  • a missing filling

  • a lost crown (even at the front)

  • a lost bridge (even at the front)

  • a broken denture

Unfortunately these are not considered a genuine dental emergency, but please feel free to telephone the Emergency number to speak to a dentist for clarification.

Basic Advice for some dental emergencies

I think I have an abscess:

  • Take painkillers - if possible Ibruprofen is the best for dental pain relief - BUT always read the label/advice sheet carefully before taking medication (For example - Asthmatics should not take ibruprofen)

  • Take a mug of hot water and add a teaspoon of salt then hold a mouthful of this HOT SALTY WATER over the area for a couple of minutes at a time.

  • NEVER HOLD ANYTHING WARM TO YOUR FACE (for example a hot towel), this will make it much worse.

My filling/crown has fallen out, is there anything i can do myself?

  • There are kits available from the chemist called DENTANURSE to aid patients with a safe, quick, temporary solution to dental problems.

If your tooth is knocked out you should:

  • Immediately call your dentist for emergency advice.

  • Try to find the tooth.

  • Gently rinse the tooth under water, but do not scrub to remove dirt or debris.

  • Place the clean tooth in your mouth between the cheek and gum.

  • Do not attempt to replace the tooth into the socket without advice. This could cause further damage.

  • Get to the dentist as soon as possible. If it is within a half hour of the injury, it may be possible to re-implant the tooth.

  • If it is not possible to store the tooth in the mouth of the injured person, (e.g., young child) wrap the tooth in a clean cloth or gauze and immerse in milk.
