Emergency Dental Appointments
We understand how distressing a dental emergency can be. That's why we keep timeslots open in our calendar so that we can accommodate dental emergencies and can help you quickly and efficiently. If you have a dental emergency, please call us immediately for friendly advice on what to do in the interim and we'll find a time to see you as soon as we can. We also welcome walk-ins!
What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
The first step is to give us a call. Our friendly team will discuss with you your symptoms and help you determine the severity of the emergency.
Depending on the type of emergency, our dentists provide you with guidance and advice on what to do in the interim as you make your way to see us. This varies from situation to situation, so it is important that you speak to one of our highly trained team members. It is very easy to panic and do the wrong thing during times of distress so we'll be able to advise you on how to manage the pain, what to do in your particular situation and importantly, what NOT to do.
While some dental emergencies can wait for treatment, others require immediate attention. For example, if you’ve knocked out a tooth and come see us within the hour, there is a good chance our dentists can replant the tooth!
What is a dental emergency?
There are a variety of situations that are considered a dental emergency. In general, if you are in severe pain, it is important to see a dentist as soon as you can. Dental emergencies include:
Severe toothache, headaches or major gum pain - You may have a severe dental infection and it is best to act quickly
Swollen cheeks or face - Swelling of your face or cheeks can be a sign of infection or other underlying issues
Knocked-out tooth - If you see your dentist quickly enough, we will be able to replant and save your tooth!
Dislodged/loose tooth or teeth - If you've had an accident that has caused your teeth or a tooth to feel loose, seeing your dentist urgently can ensure they stay put
Fractured tooth or cracked tooth - If you've fractured a tooth and you are in severe pain, especially if you have exposed the pulp of your tooth
Painful swelling of the gums - This may be a severe infection or other underlying issues
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, please give us a call for advice on how to deal with it in the interim and we can help you book an appointment to see our experienced dentists as soon as possible.
