Many patients (especially those who are nervous) may feel more comfortable knowing what to expect from their emergency dental appointment, which we always aim to accommodate at our practice. During an emergency dental appointment our dental healthcare professionals will first assess the affected area, if a patient is experiencing discomfort or pain then addressing this will of course be the priority.
Some common treatments that can be expected during an emergency dental appointment might consist of a temporary dressing placed on a tooth, or an extraction of a single tooth from within the mouth.
Why choose our emergency dentist in Barrow-in-Furness?
Choosing a dental clinic to receive any form of dentistry such as routine dentistry, can be difficult, but especially if patients are experiencing dental pain or extreme aesthetic concerns. Our dental practice, Teckkam Dental Care, adopts a patient centred dental approach, which means we always place our patients at the top of our priority list, to ensure they are constantly looked after.

Experiencing a dental emergency whilst on holiday
Many individuals may be experiencing a dental emergency whilst abroad, which can be extremely scary for many of our patients. If you are a patient with Denplan then you can access emergency care whilst travelling within Britain and abroad.
How to pay for your dental treatment abroad
If you are experiencing a dental emergency whilst on holiday you may be concerned about how to pay for your emergency dental appointment, and treatment. Our dental healthcare professionals suggest you pay for your emergency dental care immediately whilst keeping your receipt, and later receiving the money back from your Denplan.
What happens when emergency dentists are on holiday?
If you are looking for emergency dental care, (whether you are a registered patient or not), but our dentists are away from our surgery, then we will always find you an alternative dental practitioner. If you are a member of our Denplan then your appointments are always included in your Denplan agreement.
