What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation that requires immediate attention and treatment to alleviate pain and prevent further damage. They can occur in various forms and may involve conditions that cause severe pain and infection, affecting your oral health. Some of the most common symptoms of dental emergencies include:

  • Severe toothaches
  • Severe or unexpected bleeding
  • You have a lost tooth
  • Swelling in the face and gums as a result of an infection
  • Loose or wobbly tooth

Our emergency dentistry services aim to promptly evaluate, diagnose and treat these dental emergencies. We understand that dental emergencies can be distressing and painful. That’s why we prioritise prompt attention and assistance when you need it. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, call us ASAP!

What should I do in a Dental Emergency?

Knowing what to do in a dental emergency and whom to call can make all the difference in a dental emergency. It can help you avoid severe, unnecessary pain and dental complications, ensuring the best possible outcomes for your dental health.

Dental Emergencies we treat

Severe Tooth Pain

If you’re experiencing unbearable tooth pain, it could be a dental infection, tooth decay, eruption of wisdom teeth or dental trauma. We will assess your mouth and determine the source of pain to provide relief and address the underlying cause.

You can alleviate your pain by rinsing your mouth gently with warm salt water, applying a cold compress over your cheek or using over-the-counter pain relief medication until you visit us.

Knocked-Out (Avulsed) Tooth

Depending on the severity of the trauma, our dentist may have a chance of reimplanting your knocked-out tooth. This is why you should seek urgent attention if your tooth is knocked out. Handle the tooth carefully without touching the roots, and rinse the debris or dirt off the tooth. You can either place it back in the socket or coat it in milk or saliva before bringing it to our emergency dentists.
If the tooth cannot be reattached, we can discuss other tooth restoration options, like dental implants or dental bridges.

Broken or Chipped Tooth

Your teeth can chip or crack upon impact when you bite into something hard or if it has been weakened by decay. They can expose the nerve, causing pain and increasing the risk of infection. Visit us ASAP to stand a chance to save your tooth. Depending on the condition, we can repair the damage with a filling or crown.

Broken/Lost Dental Restorations

If you have lost or damaged a dental restoration, such as a dental crown, filling or bridge, you must visit us immediately to prevent further complications. Depending on the type of restoration and extent of damage, we may be able to reattach it. If not, you may need a replacement to restore your smile and functionality.

Dental Trauma

Accidents or sports-related injuries too can damage your teeth, gums and jaws. Our experienced team will assess the extent of damage and provide the necessary treatment to help you relieve pain and recover.
