How do I manage my dental emergency?

Managing a dental emergency depends on the nature of the situation. However, we always want you to contact your emergency dentist in Mount Waverley, VIC at the first sign of an oral health issue. A member of our dental team can provide instructions to keep you safe and comfortable until your emergency dental appointment.

A dental emergency may include:

  • Toothache
  • Jaw pain
  • Jaw swelling
  • Blister on the gum
  • Broken tooth or restoration
  • Loose tooth

If you have pain, swelling, a blister on the gum, or a loose or broken tooth/restoration, the best way to manage that situation is to call our dental clinic to book an emergency exam with our dentist.

If your tooth is knocked out, we recommend picking it up carefully—avoiding the roots—rinsing it off, and keeping it moist in milk, water or saliva until your emergency appointment. In some cases, your dentist may be able to restore the tooth to the gum.

Our approach to emergency dentistry in Mount Waverley, VIC is always to ease your pain as soon as possible and then get to work restoring your oral health.

If you have a dental emergency, you are not alone. Our dental team is here for you.
