Need Urgent Emergency Treatment?
If you require emergency assistance, please do not hesitate to call us on (03) 9878 9227 and one of our dentists will treat your dental emergency as soon as possible.
The longer you leave an extreme dental issue, the worse it could get. You must act immediately to prevent even more pain and discomfort down the line.
Emergency Situations - Broken or Sore Teeth
I have a broken tooth
Keep the area as clean as possible. If you have any fragments, keep them and bring them to the dentist with you. See us for an appointment to fix your broken tooth. If the broken tooth is very sharp and cutting your cheek or tongue, we can fix this quickly to alleviate the discomfort.
My tooth is causing me a lot of pain
Pain caused by your teeth is not normal and is usually a sign that you need to see a dentist. If you can, please take anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen and book an appointment with us so we can alleviate your pain. Possible treatments may include restoration of the tooth, root canal treatment or tooth extraction.
Emergency Situations - Swelling
I have swelling in my gums and face
This is certainly a real emergency! Swelling that spreads to your face can potentially be life threatening. Please call us immediately or if you cannot get to us, please visit your local hospital emergency department straight away.
Emergency Situations - Knocked Teeth
My tooth has been knocked out
Find your tooth immediately. If it is dirty, gently rinse it with some milk for a few seconds. The best place for you to keep your tooth while on your way to visit us is in your mouth. If this is not feasible, place it in a container covered with your saliva. Call and visit us as soon as possible (within the hour if possible). The sooner we see you, the greater the chance that we can save your tooth.
My tooth has been knocked and displaced
Call us immediately so we can try to reposition your tooth.
If you believe that you have a dental emergency, please call us. We are in the best position to advise you of what to do next. Whether an appointment is required or whether pain relief or another remedy will suffice, we’ll let you know.
