Experiencing a dental emergency can be an incredibly distressing and painful experience. It is essential to know where to turn when you urgently need an emergency dentist in Reading. This comprehensive guide will help you understand the various types of dental emergencies, how to access emergency dental care, and what to expect during your emergency or urgent dental care appointment.

Understanding Dental Emergencies

Common Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can arise from various causes, including accidents, trauma, or neglected dental care. Some common dental emergencies include:

  • Broken tooth
  • Toothache
  • Dental abscess
  • Lost crown or filling
  • Gum or mouth pain

In any of these situations, it is essential for patients to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and avoid potential complications.

Identifying a Dental Emergency

Understanding the difference between a routine appointment and a dental or emergency appointment is crucial for ensuring you receive the appropriate care. A dental emergency typically involves severe pain, swelling, or bleeding that requires urgent attention. You should contact an emergency dentist in Reading if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Intense tooth pain that prevents you from sleeping, eating, or functioning normally
  • Swelling or redness around the tooth or in the mouth
  • Persistent bleeding from the mouth
  • Injury or trauma to the teeth or mouth

Accessing Emergency Dental Care

In the event of a dental emergency, it is crucial to contact an emergency dentist immediately. Emergency dental practices, such as our dental practice in Reading, are equipped to handle emergency patients on a full same day next-day basis, providing prompt and effective treatment. To secure an emergency dental appointment, call 01189261655 now.

What to Expect During Your Emergency Dental Appointment

During your emergency dental appointment, our skilled dentists will assess the issue and provide immediate treatment to alleviate pain and address the underlying problem. You may receive pain relief, antibiotics, or other necessary treatments. In some cases, further dental treatment may be required at a later date to ensure the best possible outcome.


Q: What is classed as a dental emergency? A: A dental emergency typically involves severe pain, swelling, or bleeding or broken tooth that requires urgent attention. Examples include intense tooth pain, swelling or redness around the tooth, persistent bleeding from the mouth, or injury or trauma to the teeth or mouth.

Q: Can you advise that you go to A&E with toothache?

A: A&E should only be visited for life-threatening emergencies. For toothache or other dental issues, it is more appropriate to visit an emergency dentist, who can provide specialised treatment and care.

Q: How do I access emergency dentist UK?

A: To access an emergency dentist in the UK, you should contact a local dental practice that offers emergency dental care, a practice such as our dental practice in Reading. To secure an emergency dental appointment, call 01189261655 now.

Q: How long is the NHS dental waiting list?

A: The waiting time for an NHS dental appointment can vary depending on the location and availability of dental practices. For urgent dental care, it is recommended to contact an emergency call dentist immediately, who can see you on a same-day basis.
