Frequently asked questions

Do I need to be registered?

No. You don’t need to be registered with us as a patient for one of our caring dental teams to look after you.

If you are registered with a dentist you will receive follow up treatment (if required) by them.

If you don’t have a dentist you can choose to remain a patient at our practice and we would love to be able to look after you moving forward!

When can I be seen?

We always guarantee same day emergency appointments. We are quite busy but will always move heaven and earth to ensure you are seen the same day.

Provided there is no medical contraindications, it is in your best interest and you are happy to proceed we always provide emergency treatment during your visit with us.

How does it work?

You can contact us in whatever manner is most convenient for you:
Calling us on 0161 300 2099
Online chat
Click to email

You will then be triaged and offered the earliest and most convenient appointment for you.

The dentist will see you, carry out an assessment, x-rays if needed and then explain in plain language the issue and your treatment options.

Emergency treatment is provided in the same visit provided there are no medical contraindications, it is in your best interest and you are happy to proceed.

How much does it cost to be seen?

The assessment fee is £49 and covers your consultation and any x-rays you require.

The treatment fees will vary depending on the emergency. We see patients for everything from broken dentures, toothache to dental trauma.

Fees depend on the issue and the treatment option you choose.

You are not liable for anything further to the £49 assessment until the dentist gives you an exact treatment fee.

I haven’t been to the dentist for years?!

That is not an issue for us and we see many patients who have not attended a dentist for many years.

We treat all patients with care, respect and dignity.

I’m EXTREMELY nervous?!

We totally understand that. It doesn’t help when you are anxious with toothache then attending a clinic you may have never attended previously.

We feel we have the most caring dental team who are specially trained in anxious patients.

Have a look at our reviews below and we hope that sentiment comes across.

What pain killers can I try?

Only take painkillers that you know you are not allergic to. Always read the label.

We would always advise consulting a qualified medical professional such as a doctor or pharmacist before taking painkillers.

Are you NHS or Private?

Unfortunately we do not have an NHS contract and are thus a wholly private practice.

In the greater Manchester area the number for the emergency dental service is 0333 3323 800.

Essential help for common dental emergencies

Recommended pain relief for toothache

Toothache can be one of the most painful experiences we go through. It will often be caused by decay resulting from poor oral hygiene and/or diet.

Self-help advice for toothache

  • Pain killers – paracetamol/ibuprofen. Please ensure you read the label, are not allergic to the medication and do not exceed the maximum dosage
  • If the pain is caused by hot things only – applying cold to the area can often have a soothing effect

For contraindications, side-effects and maximum doses, always read the label!

How do I know if I have a dental abscess?

Abscesses are infections that occur around the root of a tooth or in the space between the teeth and gums. Acute pain with or without swollen gums or face are signs of a possible infection or abscess.

If you think you might be suffering from an infection or an abscess, please contact Dental Triage as soon as possible as the infection can possibly spread to other parts of the body if left untreated.

Self-help advice for an abscess

  • Pain killers – paracetamol/ibuprofen. Please ensure you read the label, are not allergic to the medication and do not exceed the maximum dosage
  • Applying cold pressure to the area
  • Rinsing with salt water

What should I do if I have an accident resulting in trauma of the face, mouth or teeth?

Injuries to the face and teeth can cause particular alarm and be extremely distressing. We always advice you see a dental or medical professional in such an event.

Self-help advice for face, mouth or teeth trauma

  • Gently rinse out with salt water, if you feel safe to do, to be able to assess/visualise any damage
  • If it is bleeding, apply a damp gauze/handkerchief to the area for 20 minutes and remain still
  • If an adult tooth has fallen out completely, and you feel confident to do so, grab the tooth from the crown (the white part, not the brown root), rinse under water and place tooth back in its socket
    • If unable to replace, place the tooth in a cup with milk or saliva until you can see an emergency dentist
    • Please note- baby teeth are NOT to be placed back in the socket
  • Chipped or broken teeth – if causing pain then take simple painkillers such as paracetamol/ibuprofen (provided you are not allergic, follow the instructions and do not exceed maximum dosage)
  • Most small cuts to lips or cheeks will often heal on their own
