 What are the common dental emergencies we encounter in Brisbane, and do you need to see an Emergency Dentist?

Here is a list of the common dental emergency situations we encounter in Brisbane. Even if your symptoms resolve on their own, you should still see one of our emergency dentists for a thorough oral health assessment in case there's something wrong. Common dental emergencies include:

Chipped or cracked tooth

Teeth can get chipped or cracked by an impact, trip or fall, or biting into something hard. A tooth that's been weakened by decay or erosion may also be at risk of cracking. Even minor cracks can weaken your tooth and let in bacteria.

If your tooth gets damaged, we may be able to repair it with a filling, crown or other treatment. You should try to avoid using the tooth until you have a chance to see our emergency dentists.

Tooth knocked out

If your tooth gets knocked out but is still intact, there's a small chance it could be reattached if you can see our dentists immediately. You should put the tooth back in its socket or in a glass of milk to keep it moist and avoid touching the roots.

In most cases, a missing tooth can't be reattached, but we can discuss replacing it with a denture, bridge or implant. A missing tooth needs emergency dental care to prevent infection, we would advise you contact one of our emergency dentists in Brisbane immediately.

Tooth pain or sensitivity

Toothache can happen for many reasons. When you make an appointment with our Brisbane emergency dentists, we'll try to track down the cause and will recommend any treatment that may be needed.

To relieve a toothache, try rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater, applying ice to the outside of your cheek or using over-the-counter pain relief medicine

Bleeding mouth

If your gums, lips, cheek or other area of your mouth is bleeding, this will normally stop on its own before long. If the bleeding continues, you should see our Brisbane based emergency dentists or visit the hospital.

You can try to stop the bleeding by applying pressure, making sure to keep the site clean to avoid infection.

Lost filling or crown

If you damage or lose a dental restoration such as a filling, crown or veneer, this is also considered a dental emergency. Depending on the type of restoration and how badly it's damaged, we may be able to reattach it or you may need a replacement.

Before you can see us, try to avoid using the tooth, as it may feel sensitive or be more vulnerable to damage or infection.

Swollen face

If your face is swollen and you feel a pain in your mouth, these could be symptoms of a dental abscess. You should make an appointment to see our emergency dentists as soon as possible.

To relieve the pain, you can try rinsing your mouth with warm salt water, applying ice or a cold compress, or taking medication.
