Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for your question. How long have you had this ulcer, and what have you tried for it so far?
Thanks, ***** ***** used anything topical such as bonjela?
I see, no worries. In that case it sounds like you will need some antibiotics. Unfortunately this should only come from a dentist as they need to assess if antibiotics is enough or if it needs draining
I can find you details to contact a dentist to arrange a review this week, alternatively if you call 111 you can access your local emergency dentist.
Even an NHS dentist?
£22.70 for standard NHS dental review throughout the UK
£62.10 is then a flat fee if you need any surgical intervention, but I suspect you would only need the standard appointment. Do you claim any for of benefits?
Who isn't....however I appreciate your concern. They officially re-open tomorrow
Plus, think of it this way, an early dental abscess is likely to be managed with oral antibiotics.
If you leave it, it would probably need draining - so more costly and something that could have been avoided.
A delay here may cause more cost, and more discomfort
You will probably find that they will manage this over the phone for you...
No worries, well I can help you with finding one if you like. Otherwise best of luck
No worries, I can help you with this, but most will probably offer to telephone triage for you. Please could you kindly rate my response so that JustAnswer acknowledge my response, I will then do a search for you to find NHS dentists which are still accepting NHS patients
If you could kindly click on the stars to rate my response, and either supply a post code or your nearest town. Thanks

Okay thanks, ***** ***** just thinking if there was away of claiming free dental care
