The below FAQ’s will help you during those critical dental emergency situations when you are in excruciating dental pain or severe dental trauma:

What to do if I have a severe toothache or sore tooth?

If you are suffering from a painful toothache, something could be wrong with the tooth. Contact us immediately to organise an appointment with our Emergency Dentists as quickly & conveniently as possible for you. Painkillers such as Neurofen, Panadol or Advil may only help for temporary relief but will require urgent attention to be addressed by our Canberra Emergency Dentists. Please be cautious not to exceed the maximum dose if you are taking pain relief medicine in the meantime.

What to do if I have a swollen face or gum swelling or dental abscess?

Swellings or dental abscesses are caused by tooth infection, gum infection or trauma to the tooth which causes facial swelling or enlarged lymph nodes. Please contact us immediately to receive appropriate timely dental treatment or suitable antibiotics from our Emergency Dentists.

What to do if I have knocked a tooth out?

Contact us immediately as the knocked out tooth may need to be re-implanted into its socket as soon as possible.
It’s very important that you handle the top (crown) of the tooth only. DO NOT touch the tooth by its root as the fibres around the root surface needs to be protected.
DO NOT place the tooth in water
• DO place the tooth in cold milk to not let the tooth dry out or place tooth on one side of your mouth between your teeth & cheeks

What to do if I have chipped, cracked, broken or fractured my teeth?

Chipped, cracked, broken or fractured teeth can usually be restored. If the tooth is painful, avoid drinking hot or cold & avoid eating or biting on that side i.e. relieve the tooth from extremes of temperature and pressure. Painkillers such as Ibuprofen, Neurofen or Paracetamol may help relieve the pain. Please contact us immediately & we’ll do our best to offer you an earliest available dental appointment with our Emergency Dentists.

What to do if I have broken or cracked my Denture?

Broken or cracked dentures should be professionally repaired with the right dental materials and specific dental tools by our Canberra Emergency Dentists. Please resist the temptation to glue them together yourself as this often makes a professional denture repair very difficult. Contact us as soon as possible to organise the appropriate denture repair at an earliest by our Canberra Emergency Dentists.

What to do if I have lost a dental Crown or the Crown cap came off?

The tooth under the dental crown does not have the protection and strength that it had when it was covered with the crown. So till you see your Emergency Dentist Canberra, please be careful to have soft foods only and chew on the other side of the mouth. Please be aware that more often than not, when a dental crown comes off it could also be due to recurrent decay or some other dental breakdown.

Please keep your dental Crown safe & bring it along for your emergency dental appointment so it can be re-cemented, recapped or re-fixed as soon as possible to avoid further tooth damage or the need for Root Canal Treatment (RCT). Please do contact us immediately & we’ll do our best to accommodate you at an earliest with our Canberra Emergency Dentists.

Is it safe for an emergency visit to the Dentist if I am pregnant?

Yes, it is absolutely safe to visit a Dentist if you are pregnant. The medicaments used by our Dentists will not harm you or your unborn. Our Canberra dentists will use extreme caution to safeguard you and your baby, such as shielding your abdomen or thyroid if dental diagnostic X-Rays or panoramic OPG (full mouth X-Rays) have to be taken depending on the trimester you are in.

Please do not skip your regular dental checkups simply because you are pregnant. Regular periodontal or gum examinations and appropriate dental treatments are very important because pregnancy causes hormonal changes that could put you at increased high risk for periodontal disease and for tender gums that bleed easily which is called “pregnancy gingivitis”. Please pay particular attention to any changes in your gums during pregnancy & if any tenderness, bleeding or gum swelling occurs at any time during your pregnancy, please call us as soon as possible and we shall endeavour to provide you emergency dental care during your pregnancy.

Please be aware that it is very risky to leave a dental problem untreated when you are pregnant & thus is very important in the best interest of your oral health to promptly seek appropriate dental treatment from our Emergency Canberra Dentists.

Is it safe for an emergency visit to the Dentist if I am breastfeeding?

Yes, our Canberra Emergency Dentists will ensure that all medicaments used on you will be safe for you & your new born.
