Your dentist will first prioritise reducing your pain, often through the application of local dental anaesthetic. Once you are comfortable, they will carry out a full examination of your area of concern, and advise you of the best course of treatment that can be carried out there and then. With your consent your dentist will then proceed with this emergency treatment right away. Our goal is not just to resolve your immediate symptoms and get you out of pain. We prioritise treating and resolving as much of your underlying dental issue as possible during your emergency appointment, not later.
Your emergency treatment also includes any prescription - for example for an antibiotic or pain relief - that is required as part of your treatment.
Following your urgent care and the beginning or resolution of your treatment, your dentist will assess your overall oral health situation, identifying any factors which contributed to your dental emergency. This allows them to prepare a full treatment plan for any further treatment or procedures which you require to fully resolve the issue.
Our dentists always include a full breakdown of total costs in your individual treatment plan. We believe in making quality dental care accessible to all, so we provide a number of payment plan options. You can choose to spread the cost of treatment out over time, and easily incorporate your dental plan into a schedule that best suits your budget, needs, and lifestyle.
