You should see your dentist for regular check ups; also, there is an out-of-hours emergency dental service available to you once you have registered. Click on this link for details of the Nottingham Emergency Dental Service. Dental problems should be treated by dentists, not by doctors. Dentists can prescribe antibiotics and painkillers just as doctors do. People not registered with a dentist or just visiting locally can consult any dentist for advice. If you have difficulty finding a dentist please click on this link. If you or your child has a tooth knocked out, carefully pick up the tooth but do not attempt to wash or clean it. Put it straight into a little cold milk and take it with the patient to the dentist.
