Emergency Dentistry

A dental emergency is anything involving the teeth, gums or oral tissues that may be causing discomfort. Dental emergencies can vary in severity but if you think you may be experiencing a dental emergency it is important to see a dentist for an examination in order to alleviate pain, prevent further damage or in some cases, to save a tooth. Some common examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Toothache
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Facial swelling due to dental infection
  • Loss of or damage to a filling
  • Broken crown or bridge
  • Wisdom tooth pain
  • Bleeding from gums or gum infection

If you believe you are experiencing any problems with your teeth or gums it is important to have it addressed by a dentist as soon as possible to prevent worsening of the condition.

If you have a dental emergency it is encouraged to visit a dentist as they will have the equipment required to manage the emergency. However, if it is after hours and you are unable to find an available dentist, you can go to the hospital and they may be able to manage the condition or give advice until you are able to see the dentist the following day.
Our clinic offers an emergency hotline for patients to call which allows them to chat to our dentists after hours in which the dentist can provide advice or organise a time

No, there is no cost difference in a regular or an emergency appointment. If there is an emergency after hours, sometimes there may be a call out fee. However, this can be avoided by regular dental visits as most dental problems can be foreseen and managed with early intervention.

If you are experiencing something you think may be a dental emergency, call our clinic today. Even outside of opening hours, we can get you in touch with one of our experienced dentists who can help you manage your dental emergency by either providing advice or treatment based on the case.
