Dental Emergency?

For dental emergencies call the dentist with whom you are registered. You should receive a recorded message advising you of the arrangements that have been made for emergency cover. If you have not registed with a dentist you should try to do so as soon as possible. Dentists can perform an appropriate assessment and advise on necessary intervention including use of any antibiotics.

Dental emergencies include:

  • Acute dental pain
  • Abscesses and swellings in and around the mouth
  • Bleeding
  • Trauma - for example knocking out a tooth

If you are not currently registered with a Dentist advice and information is available by calling a Dental Advice Helpline.
