Would I need an emergency appointment ?. I also have swollen, receding gums. I'm not sure whether to see a doctor, dentist, or go to a walk in health centre. I have tried to call a few surgeries recently ,but they aren't taking on nhs patients. So I think I will either have to find another surgery in my area, or go to an nhs surgery that is out of my area but still close by.
