As with many other emergencies in life, dental emergencies can strike when you least expect them. Here at Meliora Dental, we more than understand how distressing dental emergencies can be, which is why we reflect the NHS as much as we can with our costs. If you’re looking for an emergency dentist, Leeds is home to many NHS and private practices. But, here’s why we think you should choose us when you’re in need of care and treatment to get you smiling and pain-free again.

 

Here for you (even at weekends)

Many private dentists do not currently offer weekend services for an emergency dentist. Leeds-based Meliora Dental however, offer Saturday emergency appointment slots, and our phone lines are contactable until 1:30pm.

 

Our patients have found weekend emergency care to be extremely valuable.

 

A focus on patient education

We mean this in the nicest possible way, but as dentists we hope to see as little as possible when it comes to emergency dental care! We focus on giving our patients the transparent advice they deserve, so that they can apply this to their everyday oral care routine.

 

Our Pearl AI X-ray system allows us to provide a concise and simple visual representation of what’s going on inside your mouth, helping you to make sense of the condition of your oral health. With this deeper understanding into your oral health comes the bigger incentive to look after your smile, and minimise dental emergencies in the future.

 

Our AI X-ray system uses colour to highlight localised parts of the mouth, differentiating the enamel and dentin. This allows your dentist to provide a better explanation of how issues like dental decay or erosion are affecting a tooth. It also allows the Meliora Dental clinical team to make the most informed diagnoses possible, so that no stone is left unturned when we come to examine your mouth when you visit your private dentist. Leeds

 

Convenient on-site parking

One of the most frustrating elements of visiting a health establishment is the lack of parking.

 

When you’ve suffered a dental emergency, finding somewhere to park is the last thing you’ll want to have to think about. We completely understand this, which is why we have on-site parking at the practice, setting us apart from many other private dentists in Leeds.

 

Reflecting NHS prices – giving our patients value for money

We believe in fair prices for our patients, particularly when they really need an emergency dentist. Leeds dentist Meliora Dental sets its emergency fee at £49.99, with a view to removing as much stress as possible when it comes to financing your emergency treatment.

 

We reflect the NHS with our prices as much as possible, despite not being subsided by the government (which private dental practices are not).

 

Should you need any follow-up treatment, we will be completely transparent about the costs involved before the next steps are taken. We will never attempt to apply any degree of pressure when advising you on your next steps following emergency treatment. We will provide all the clinical facts so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with a restorative treatment.

Being prepared for when dental emergencies strike

Emergency dentist appointments are stressful enough when you have a dentist lined up to contact, let alone if you’re scrambling to find a private dentist in Leeds who will take you on as a patient as soon as possible.

 

The best way to prepare is to choose an emergency dentist in Leeds who will get you seen quickly, and make sure treatment and aftercare are provided to get you smiling again.

 

What are examples of dental emergencies?

Defining a dental emergency can be a challenge. If you’re ailing, and you’re unsure if your situation warrants urgent care, we encourage you to get in touch with us – it’s always better to have peace of mind either way.

Examples of dental emergencies include:

 

More services available for nervous patients

You can tell a lot about the ethos of a private dental practice from the way it treats its nervous and vulnerable patients.

 

At Meliora Dental, we offer midazolam intravenous sedation for patients who require it during their emergency appointments. Already anxious patients can really struggle when an emergency strikes. Our clinical team has found IV sedation to be an indispensable tool for helping them to remain calm during their appointment.

 

Sedation is a relaxant that keeps you fully conscious during treatment (as opposed to general anaesthetic which puts you to sleep). There is very little ‘hangover’ effect after sedation wears off, and many patients who come along for an emergency appointment find they gain a sizeable dose of confidence once they realise the dentist isn’t as bad as they may have envisaged.

Building a rapport with you

As a private dentist, Leeds-based patients visit us from all over the city and beyond. We value building a rapport with you, which can be hugely beneficial when a dental emergency occurs.

 

If we have previously and regularly seen you for treatment or a dental emergency, we will be well-poised to meet your needs in a way the NHS may no longer be able to. Today, it’s rare to be seen by the same dentist consistently through the NHS.

 

If you value consistently seeing the same dentist who has full context when it comes to your dental history, private emergency dental care is certainly something to consider.

Thank you for your hard work and I hope this testimonial reflects just how happy I am with my smile.

Kunal is a very approachable, informative and meticulous dentist. From the beginning of my last Invisalign journey, Kunal explained the procedure very clearly and thoroughly. He showed me a 3D image and how my teeth would change throughout the treatment, the length of the treatment and the possible cons of it, such as black triangles...

As a result of an accident I had as a child my front tooth suffered some trauma and became discoloured over time. The tooth eventually broke last year which led to it being removed. I was referred to Kunal who took me through the various options I had. As functionality was the most important aspect for a replacement for me we agreed an implant was the route to go. The tooth removal however left an element of damage to the natural bone so I had to undergo a bone graft to repair this. One year after the extraction (as 2 bone grafts were needed in the end) I'm now fitted with my implant and I can honestly say I have never been as proud to smile as I am today. From start to finish Kunal...

These were removed after 9 months due to them being "unable to straighten anymore" leaving me unhappy with my teeth and a major open bite. As years went on, I became less and less confident with my teeth, until I came across Kunal. From the first moment I walked into the practice, Kunal was very welcoming and talked me through every possible stage that would happen if I was to go ahead with treatment with zoom calls to show the perceived results and ensure I was happy to go ahead with treatment Kunal gave me a diagnosis of my open bite, which was behavioural, therefore instantly this behavioural trait was worked upon to receive the best results from...

Thank you for your hard work and I hope this testimonial reflects just how happy I am with my smile. The care and attention which I received during my smile makeover was far better than any I have previously experienced. Kunal and his team were amazing throughout the entire process. I had regular check-ups throughout, and each time Kunal would make sure I was happy, not just with the work that had already taken place, but with the direction my smile was headed. Kunal engaged in discussion with me about each aspect making sure I fully understood what would happen and giving me the chance to have my own input. This combined with his vast knowledge and incredible skill left me feeling fully relaxed and in safe hands. Each step was performed in meticulous detail,...

Kunal is a very approachable, informative and meticulous dentist. From the beginning of my last Invisalign journey, Kunal explained the procedure very clearly and thoroughly. He showed me a 3D image and how my teeth would change throughout the treatment, the length of the treatment and the possible cons of it, such as black triangles and what can be done to minimize them. Kunal made it clear from the beginning that as a dentist his interest was the function of the teeth, better oral hygiene, the bite etc. I learned so much from him regarding my own teeth, that it was my bottom teeth that was causing the misalignment on my top teeth, l have gum recession due to excess brushing and l was in danger of losing two teeth due to it!
