Emergency Dental Appointments
At Sharrow Dental, we are committed to providing a 7-day service for our patients. Emergencies do not always happen between 8am and 5.30pm so our urgent dental care does not end there. Our doors are open for emergency dental appointments on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Please note that we cannot guarantee to provide routine NHS appointments (check-ups and treatments) at weekends.
Emergency Dentists Chelmsford
The type of conditions that we would consider to be an emergency include:
- Swelling or abscess;
- Dental trauma – a blow to the lips, teeth or other orofacial tissues without loss of consciousness or other injuries that go beyond what a dentist can offer;
- Pain – toothache that keeps you up at night, is spontaneous or is painful when eating;
- Persistent or intensifying pain, bleeding or swelling following an extraction or other dental procedure;
- Broken tooth with associated toothache;
- Lost filling/crown with associated pain or sensitivity (if no pain then perhaps wait until the working week);
- Lost filling/crown on a front tooth that is visible when you smile;
- Spontaneous and non-stop bleeding from gums or another part of the mouth;
- Wisdom tooth pain;
- Open or closed jaw lock.
If you are in pain while waiting to see a dentist, take painkillers or call NHS 111 for other self-care advice.
Only go to A&E in serious circumstances, such as severe facial swelling, severe bleeding or severe trauma to the facial skeleton.
If your condition does not fall under any of these categories, then please call reception to schedule a check-up or appointment to fix the problem.
Dental Trauma Management and Rehabilitation
1 in 4 people will experience dental trauma at some point over the course of their life. This can include chipped teeth, broken teeth with exposed nerves, split lips or cuts to the tongue and soft tissues, bruised or dislocated teeth, root fractures and loss of teeth. Dental trauma can be very stressful for the individuals involved as well as parents, friends and carers. Swift and expert treatment is critical to assure the long-term health of the teeth and tissues of the lips and mouth.
Dr Clough and his team are extremely knowledgeable in the field of dental trauma and oral rehabilitation with both Dr Tony Clough and Dr Frank Clough having presented internationally on the topic. Close relationships with local schools and sports clubs have established Sharrow Dental Practice as a local hub for immediate management of traumatic injuries and for long-term rehabilitation of these individuals with root canal treatment, bleaching, composite bonding, crowns, bridges, dentures and implants.

Sorry it has taken me this long to write a review but I just want to thank Ian so much for my teeth. I had a brace put on and I was quite nervous throughout the whole procedure as I don’t feel totally comfortable whenever I go to the dentist, however Ian was always so professional and confident that I knew I was in safe hands. He is also very honest so you know what result you can achieve and what you can’t which I think is really important. I am so pleased with my teeth now the brace is off and I would 100% recommend!! thank you Ian & Sharrow.
Sharrow has been very warm and welcoming – good services all round. Mr Clough has been very meticulous in his treatment – very patient. Taking his time with everything he has done. I have recommended several people to his clinic and I hope they take my advice. Happy and comfortable with the service and my mouth is back to normal! So far so good! Thank you
Truly great dentist, it’s no accident that my family, my daughter’s husband and now his family now go there. Having had bad experiences in my early life , I’m so glad I found them and can only deduce that they only take on dentist who are a. fantastic at their job, b. very empathetic to those who have had bad experiences.
I’m a very nervous patient. I’m absolutely petrified of dentists but this one I feel so comfortable at. They are absolutely amazing with me and I’d recommend to anyone who’s also nervous this is the surgery for you. Everyone is so lovely and welcoming. Thank you so much sharrows. 10/10 x
