Same Day Emergency Dental

Emergency dental care usually involves relieving pain, stopping bleeding and preserving the remaining teeth and jaw structure.

In some cases, the emergency care will be a temporary measure to alleviate pain and stabilise the condition. Our team will then schedule a follow-up appointment for further treatment.

Below is a list of dental emergencies that we can assist with:

Toothache – severe, persistent toothache that is not relieved by over-the-counter painkillers or home remedies may indicate an infection or abscess and requires immediate attention.

Cracked or fractured tooth – a broken or fractured tooth can cause extreme pain and should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent further damage or infection.

Dislodged or knocked-out tooth – if a tooth has been completely knocked out or partially dislodged, it is important to seek emergency dental care and ideally within the first hour to increase the chances of saving the tooth.

Broken or lost filling or crown – a broken or lost filling or crown can expose the sensitive nerves and tissues in the tooth and can cause severe pain and sensitivity.

Gum infection – redness, swelling, and pain in the gums can indicate a serious infection and should be treated promptly to prevent the spread of the infection.

Abscessed tooth – an abscess is a pocket of pus that forms at the root of a tooth, and can cause severe pain, swelling, and fever.

Jaw injury or pain – if you experience severe pain or swelling in your jaw, or have difficulty opening or closing your mouth, it could be a sign of a serious jaw injury or disorder.

Oral bleeding – if you experience bleeding in your mouth that doesn’t stop after applying pressure for 15 minutes, seek emergency dental care as soon as possible.

If you are unsure if your problem is considered as an emergency, it’s always best to contact The Reef Dental Centre and ask for our advice.
