Dental problems

The surgery cannot help with problems with your teeth and gums. We recommend seeing a dentist instead.

GPs cannot provide dental care

Contact your dentist or use the service below to find an NHS dentist near you.

NHS dental services

Dentists are open for routine and urgent treatments.

Treatment may be free if you meet the eligibility criteria.

You will get seen sooner if your condition is urgent.

Smile Together

Half of all people in Cornwall don’t see a dentist so Smile Together are working with NHS England to improve this as poor oral health frequently leads to and exacerbates other long-term health conditions

If you need urgent help:

Contact NHS 111 if you have:

  • significant facial swelling
  • uncontrolled bleeding
  • severe dental pain
  • a severe dental injury (trauma)

In urgent situations, 111 may be able to book you an emergency dentist appointment.
