Cannot access a dentist anymore, in terrible pain. They say they are open for emergencies but that means only prescribing antibiotics?
I have had terrible toothache since Friday and cannot access a dentist at all, even private dentists, because they are all closed due to coronavirus. I need the tooth pulled ASAP because I keep getting a re-occurring abscess in it.
Surely dentists are seen as essential??

If it's infected they won't pull it anyway.

Go to A & E and they refer to an oral surgeon? IDK It seems like an emergency to me since an untreated abscess can cause serious complications.

Keep calling different Dentists and leave messages on their emergency line until one returns your phone call.

I do not know what the laws are where you live.
Where I live, dentists are still available but ONLY for emergencies.
Call and leave a message on your dentist's voice mail.
