What about other treatments?
This advice is about routine checkups only. You may have other appointments for treatments such as teeth cleaning (scale and polish), fillings or having a tooth out, or for emergency treatment.
If you have problems with your teeth between check-ups, contact your dentist's surgery to make an earlier appointment. In an emergency outside normal working hours, contact your dentist's surgery on their usual number and you will be informed how to access emergency dental care. If you are not registered with an NHS dentist, you can call NHS Direct (0845 46 47) for advice on what to do.
