What are dental emergencies?

Some common ones and tips to deal with them.


Rinse the mouth out with warm water and floss the area to remove any debris. Take Panadol or Nurofen to help with pain and call us to help you.

Knocked out tooth

Make an appointment to see our emergency dentist, the sooner a knocked out tooth is re-implanted the more likely it is to embed itself back into the gum.

Gum abscess and swelling

Usually needs antibiotics to help settle the pain and discomfort. Always best to get assessed. If it occurs after hours take Nurofen or Panadol to help with the pain. Make an appointment as the affected area has to be managed with debridement to help get the infection out and will need further management.

Broken tooth

Any obvious damage to a tooth should be treated as soon as possible. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing problems in the future.

Wisdom tooth pain

Apply an ice pack to the outside of the face to reduce swelling for just 20 minutes. Repeat as required. Additionally, you can rinse your mouth out with warm salty water every 2 to 3 hours.

Lost filling or crown

Apply a bit of desensitising toothpaste (Sensodyne, Colgate Prorelief). Make sure if it is a crown to bring it to the appointment as it can be cemented back after further assessment.
