What is a Dental Emergency? 

A dental emergency is any situation in which you need rapid dental care in order to stop oral bleeding, reduce oral pain, save a tooth from being damaged, or prevent potential worse health problems. Without prompt treatment, these conditions could pose serious health risks. 

Common Emergency Dental Conditions We Can Help With 

Our emergency care dental hospital in Perth provides urgent care for a wide range of emergencies, including: 

  • Severe Toothache: Pain is usually an indicator of an underlying problem, so urgent dental care is necessary to uncover the reasons for your pain. An after-hours dentist will also provide pain relief, so you don’t have to wait for “normal hours” to feel better. 
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth: Dental emergency care is needed to restore the tooth before it gets worse and to relieve any pain. 
  • Knocked-Out Teeth: Urgent dentist intervention is needed to replace the tooth. The longer you wait, the higher the chance of losing the tooth for good! 
  • Wisdom Tooth Issues: Wisdom teeth that don’t erupt properly can cause pain, swelling, and even infection. Urgent dental care will ease pain and pressure and can prevent worse oral problems from developing. 
  • Abscesses or Infections: Left untreated, a tooth abscess can cause pain, pressure, fever, and infection. Dental emergency care will drain, clean, and manage the abscess to prevent the chance of infection spreading.

Gentle, Caring dentists that are naturally compassionate and understand your pain.

Whatever your oral emergency, come to our emergency dental Perth clinic. Don’t wait—our dentists are here to help you in your time of need. Here’s why you shouldn’t hesitate when you’re dealing with an after hour dental emergency.

Dental problems often come with pain, swelling, and discomfort. The sooner you get treatment, the faster you’ll be able to reduce pain and inflammation. Once inflammation is down, you’ll heal much quicker.

Failing to get immediate dental care in an emergency situation can lead to complications that wouldn’t arise if you got urgent care. A damaged tooth may be unable to be saved, one damaged tooth can cause damage to adjacent teeth, and infections (mild or major) can spread. Urgent dental intervention can stop damage in its tracks, and even reverse mild damage if you get professional dental help in time.

Some tooth emergencies, like knocked-out teeth, need rapid care for the tooth to be saved. If you wait too long, you may not be able to have the tooth re-implanted. Taking urgent action can save your tooth!

Seek dental treatment quickly to save money. Delaying care can worsen your oral health, leading to more expensive and complex procedures later.

What Can You Expect During Your Emergency Dental Visit?

When you visit our emergency dentist Perth, our dentists’ priority will be to ease our pain, make you feel calm, and do whatever we can to fix your dental problem. Here’s the process you’ll go through when you visit us.

Careful & Thorough Initial Assessment

A dental professional will examine your mouth, ask how the emergency happened, and get your medical and dental history. They may perform tests like X-rays or other scans.

Discussing Your Options

Once your dentist knows the issue, they’ll discuss the various treatment options that will work for you. They’ll walk you through the choices and guide you to the one that would work the best for your case.

A Personalised Treatment Plan

Once you’ve decided on a course of treatment, your dentist will put together a personalised treatment plan for you. This may include pain management, repair work, treating infections, and referring you to a specialist if necessary.

Pain Management
Depending on the nature of your emergency, you may get pain medication or numbing medication during your emergency appointment. It’s likely that over-the-counter pain medication will be prescribed to help you manage pain in the days to come.

Oral Repairs
The next step is to address the problem. Your dentist will repair damaged or broken teeth, re-implant a tooth that was knocked out, drain and clean an abscess, or fix damaged braces or dentures. If the damage is severe, you may require surgery for this step, and the dentists at our clinic will refer you to a maxillofacial surgeon.

Treating Infections
Your dentist may prescribe an antibiotic to clear up an existing infection, or to reduce your chances of developing an infection after treatment.

Possible Referral to a Specialist

If your case is complex, your emergency dentist might provide pain relief and stabilise the mouth before referring you to a specialist who can treat your particular condition with more success. This could be a maxillofacial surgeon, an orthodontist, endodontist, or other dental specialist.

First Aid Steps Before Your Dentist Appointment

Taking quick action when emergencies happen can help to streamline your treatment when you get to our Perth dental clinic. Here’s what you can do, depending on your emergency:

  • Bleeding:
    Rinse your mouth gently with lukewarm water. Apply gentle pressure to the bleeding area with gauze or a clean cloth until the bleeding stops. If the gauze gets soaked through, simply add another piece on top of it until the bleeding stops.
  • Dental Pain:
    Rinsing with salt water can help. You can take an over-the-counter painkiller, but don’t forget to tell the dentist what you’ve taken. If you've also got swelling, a cold compress can help.
  • Broken Teeth: Do your best to save the broken pieces and place them in a small jar with milk, water, or your own saliva. Take them with you to the dentist.
  • Knocked-Out Teeth:
    Pick the knocked-out tooth up, being careful to only touch the crown (the white part). Rinse it in warm water if needed. Try to place it back in the socket; if you can’t, place it in a small jar with milk, water, or your own saliva and get to an emergency dentist Perth as soon as you can.
  • Lost Crown or Filling:
    Rinse the filling or crown with cool water. Store it in a small jar and take it with you to the dentist. Avoid hard, sticky, or hot/cold foods until it’s fixed.
  • Broken Dental Restorations:
    Cover sharp edges with oral-friendly wax and get to an emergency dental clinic as soon as you can.
