This is something for which you should call 111. Ask for the dentist.

The dentist online will ask a few questions and give you a referral to the nearest Dental hospital or any other hospital with a dentist on call.

It is only in this way that you will be able to get an emergency dentist appointment.

Meanwhile try these steps till you get to the dentist:

Take Tab. Motrin/Advil 400 mg twice daily for the pain, available over the counter

It is important to avoid biting the tissue. Take soft foods which require minimum of chewing

Do not touch the area, it will only cause more inflammation.

Rinse your mouth with warm saline water three-four times daily, this is very important to control inflammation. Water should be warm, not hot, and not too salty.

Apply Chlorhexidine ointment to the area after the rinse, many brands are available

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

In that case you have to go directly to the nearest NHS hospital. An emergency dentist will be there, you will be able to consult him.
