Dental work should now be carried out.

Why the contribution is important

To have chipped and broken teeth is not good to put up within

    There has been a lot of focus on the hospital aspects of the NHS but little for other critical health care. Dental problems can result in heart disease and dental check ups screen for mouth cancer.

    The limitation of dental services is not just that people will have some pain but there can be long term serious health problems as a result.

    On Thursday I understand that the dental experts will be reporting to the 4 national governments with a way forward. Please accept their recommendations

    Never had a good experience with dentists, ban them all whilst we still can.

    Yes. I agree. Especially children having orthodontic work!!!!

    If dental experts recommend a practical way for dental treatment to be resumed, then doing so should be a priority for health reasons.

    Yes let them open. Orthodontic treatment is being delayed for children and they are experiencing problems with braces which need fixed.

    Realise that there are problems given the nature of this virus but allow dentists to make the decision on what is safe and what is not.

    I agree with opening the dentist for urgent treatment for patients in need. I currently have a infection that I have been dealing with at home for three weeks I have been issued antibiotics over the telephone by the emergency dentist. But I have filling that are exposed and a broken tooth that requires treatment. The area has now spread and it all ulcerated, inflamed and is getting worst daily. I have been advised my the emergency dentist to use a temporary filing kit. But these keep falling out every 1/2 hour and I keep preserving with this but the pain is making me feel sick and very unwell. If we are to return to work after lockdown we require treatment immediately as this is getting progressively worse on a daily basis. I am worried that the tooth will fall out as the gums are damaged and receding already and it’s unfair that myself and others are left in pain and cannot access treatment for this. We shouldn’t have our mental and physical well being put at risk in the long term. There will be many people unable to return to work due to the fact that we were unable to access dental treatment during lockdown and then there will be a longer waiting time
