Dental Emergencieslogo

Consult your dentist for regular check ups.

Dental problems are the province of dentists not doctors, and they can prescribe both antibiotics and painkillers, just as doctors do.  Once you have registered at a dental practice, there should be an out of hours dental emergency service available with him/her.

Holiday makers and people not registered with a dentist can consult any NHS dentist for advice or else telephone the emergency dental helpline 01202 854443.

The Out of Hours number is 0845 7010401

If you or your child has a tooth knocked out, carefully pick up the tooth but do not attempt to wash and clean it, immediately put it into a little cold milk and take it and the patient to your own dentist.
