Dental care is available to you in an emergency or necessary, regardless of whether or not you have a dentist.
Only go to the Emergency Department if you:
- are in severe pain that is not helped by painkillers
- are bleeding a lot and it won't stop
- have suffered trauma of the face, mouth or teeth after a recent accident or injury.
Contact: If your problem is urgent and you are registered with a dentist, please contact your dental practice. They should have an answerphone message with information and advice on how to access out-of-hours and emergency dental services.
If you do not have a dentist and you require emergency or out-of-hours dental services call NHS 111.
