If you are experiencing dental pain you should contact your dentist to get an appointment. All dentists should have capacity for emergencies if you are on their list.
If you are not registered with a dental practice or you are experiencing dental pain out of hours you can contact the emergency dental helpline on 029 20 444 500.
A member of the primary care team will triage you and if you require an appointment you will be booked into the emergency dental clinics at the Dental Hospital or St David’s Hospital.
If your dental pain eases with painkillers and there is no swelling to your face and your breathing is not affected you should be able to wait until your dentist can see you.
