Chipped or broken fillings/composite bonding, mild to moderate pain, sensitivity or loose crowns/bridges are NOT classed as a dental emergency.
We appreciate your co-operation when triaging patients currently.

A trip to the dentist can often cause much anxiety and apprehension. However, as the popular saying goes, ‘prevention is better than cure’ and it’s important to have routine dental check-ups. Not only do they complement your general oral hygiene, but they can also help to detect various dental issues in the early stages and will help to maintain your smile.
What does a routine dental check-up involve?
There is nothing to worry about when it comes to attending a routine check-up. Our dentists will make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible, and it usually doesn’t take as long as you expect.
If it’s your first visit, a complete health history will need to be taken. For repeat patients, the appointment will start with a few questions about your general health and any problems you’ve had since your last visit. The dentist will then thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and mouth (including your cheeks and tongue) for any problems. They may advise for you to see a hygienist for cleaning of your teeth and gums, either routinely, or if they detect gum problems.
An X-ray of your teeth may also be taken, allowing the dentist to see the exact position of your teeth in the jawline and making it easier to detect cavities and any other underlying issues.
