Our dental clinic is open and you can read our COVID-safe procedures here.
We have unfortunately had to temporarily stop our beauty treatments in line with Government regulations. All existing appointments will be rescheduled.
At Clifton Moor Dental Centre we understand that there are times when our patients need treatment as quickly as possible. If you have toothache, the most important thing is not to prolong your pain by waiting to see if it will go away. We offer urgent appointments for dental emergencies during the week. Contact us for an appointment today.
If you are experiencing dental pain, or if you suffer an unexpected problem such as a lost filling or broken denture, don’t struggle on - give us a call on 01904 479777 and our friendly team will find an emergency dental appointment that suits you and advise you on what to minimise discomfort until your appointment.
Bleeding from the mouth - If you’re bleeding from the mouth and not able to stop it
You have knocked out a tooth - If you have lost a tooth due to a forceful impact or injury to your mouth
Tooth infection - If you have an abscess in your mouth that seems infected, if you’re experiencing swelling in or around your mouth, or if you can feel knots in your jaw
Great dentists. I've been registered her for a few years and had my first 'emergency' this week. They fitted me in quick and we're super friendly and helpful. My dentist Andrew Coward explained everything and put me at ease. Huge thanks to all the team.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or are unsure if you need an emergency appointment, call our team for help and advice.
If you are not in need of an urgent appointment but are experiencing non-urgent symptoms such as a cracked or chipped tooth, mild toothache or a missing crown or filling, you should still contact us so we can get you booked in as soon as possible, and advise you on what to do in the meantime.
While you are waiting for your emergency appointment at our York practice, there may be some steps you can take to help relieve some of the pain and discomfort you are feeling.
Take some painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol, remembering to always follow the instructions on the pack.
Try dissolving a teaspoon of salt in a cup of boiling water to use as a warm mouthwash to relieve irritation and reduce any swelling.
If you have knocked a tooth out, put it in a glass of milk and bring it to your appointment.
If you are experiencing pain around one specific tooth, something may have got stuck between your teeth or inside the gum tissue. Use a cold compress to help reduce swelling and numb irritation.
