Getting urgent dental help
If you have a problem with your mouth, telephone your dentist to book an appointment. Some may be able to offer appointments at short notice. If they are closed, an answerphone should tell you what to do next.
If you do not have a dentist or cannot get an emergency appointment:
- Call 111. They will advise you what to do.
You may need to pay for your appointment. Read more about NHS dental charges.
