What is considered a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is a dental issue that requires same-day treatment. It can take varying forms, including:

If you’re having trouble deciding if your dental issue requires immediate attention, there are varying factors you should consider. One of the biggest tells is swelling at the site of the affected tooth and surrounding tissue. Throbbing pain and even fever are clear indicators of an emergency scenario.

As a general rule of thumb: if there’s a lot of pain or blood, or any sort of tooth loss involved, then you will need emergency dental work.

Frequently Asked Questions

A knocked-out tooth needs to be re-implanted into its socket immediately. Do so carefully by avoiding handling the tooth root, so you can protect the fibres around the root surface. If possible, try to place the tooth back into the socket and splint it in place with silver paper. If this is not possible, place the tooth on one side of your mouth between your teeth and cheeks.

If you cannot put your tooth back into its socket or back into your mouth, DO NOT place the tooth in water – instead, place it in cold milk. Contact Dentists of Plenty Valley immediately to arrange an emergency appointment and bring the tooth with you.

Our phone lines stay open after the practice closes in case of emergencies. Call us on (03) 97160161 if you need to make an emergency dentist appointment.
Signs to look out for include swelling around the site of the broken tooth and nearby tissue, throbbing pain and sometimes a fever.
