Emergency Dental Services

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.

In a life-threatening emergency go to the Emergency Department or call 999.
