Dental Emergency FAQs

When is it a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is many different things to many different people. A chipped front tooth can be the end of the world for someone going on their first date later that night while someone else may take 6mths to even notice it.

Pain is the other variable that is really quite interesting. Pain is best described as an emotion rather than an outcome or result. Think about a time that you have noticed blood on your clothing and after a while of looking around for the source find a cut on your arm – only then does it start hurting. Your brain plays a major role is deciding if something should hurt or not.

So, should we rely on pain? If it doesn’t hurt does it mean it is fine?

Gum disease can strip you of your teeth but not cause any pain. Oral cancers usually don’t hurt, neither does tooth decay unless it's serious. All these should be considered very strong reasons to go and see your dentist ASAP.

Obviously, it goes with-out saying that if something is swollen, loose or hurts then it’s time to call us!

Finally, the aesthetic concerns. As beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder that’s a decision only you can make! Give us a call and we can talk you through it.

Dental emergencies come in different forms. The goal is to get you out of pain and into a stable condition, within your financial capacity. This may mean doing something as simple as slightly adjusting a tooth or as complex as taking a nerve out of a tooth or extracting the tooth itself. The cost of the appointment, therefore, can vary greatly. You can spend from $100 to $500 in order to address the issue, some of which will be covered by your health fund if you are a member of one. You and your dentist will work together to decide what the correct treatment is for you and how to work within your budget.

A dental emergency can be any number of things: from severe trauma to the face, to a painful tooth, to infection and facial swelling. It is important to address an emergency as soon as possible. If you have sustained trauma to other parts of your body as well as your teeth you should present to an emergency department in a hospital, as there may be more urgent issues that need to be addressed. If your emergency is confined to your tooth or mouth, call your dentist and schedule an appointment ASAP. If your emergency is out of hours and you have sustained trauma to your mouth, have severe pain or are developing swelling, difficulty swallowing or difficulty breathing go straight to a hospital.

Dental pain can be caused by trauma, disease or infection. If you have sustained trauma to other parts of your body as well as your teeth you should present to an emergency department in a hospital, as there may be more urgent issues that need to be addressed. If your emergency is confined to your tooth and you are unable to schedule an appointment with a dentist you should attend an emergency room in the following cases: you have sustained trauma, you have severe pain or you develop swelling, swallowing or difficulty breathing.
