Dental emergencies

A dental emergency can be a terrible and distressing event. It can happen to anyone and at anytime and we understand. Therefore, it is important to identify the type of dental emergency so that you can act fast and improve your prognosis.

Critical Dental emergencies

  • Uncontrolled bleeding in the oral cavity
  • Facial swelling
  • Trauma to the face, jaw or teeth
  • Extreme and Severe pain

If you have any of these conditions, it requires your immediate attention. Please call our office so that you may be attended to immediately.

Non-Critical Dental emergencies

  • Broken fillings
  • Pain managed by over-the-counter medication
  • Dislodge or broken crowns
  • Shaky teeth
  • Broken orthodontic brackets
  • Bleeding gums

These are some examples of dental emergencies that do not require immediate attention. They are urgent dental conditions that may be addressed at your earliest convenience.


Act quickly, the first 30 minutes are the most crucial.

  1. Pick the tooth up by the crown
  2. Rinse the tooth gentle with water and remove any debris
  3. Gently put the tooth back into the socket if possible
  4. If you cannot put the tooth back into its socket, keep it in the side of your cheeks or put it in milk. Do not use tap water.
  5. Call us immediately to book an emergency appointment

A dental infection may spread to the surround tissue and cause signifcant swelling and pain. The swelling can be managed with a cold pack. The pain can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication such as Panadol. Sometimes these swellings may cause difficulty in breathing and thus be life threatening. Please see our dentist immediately.

Blood thinners and some natural supplements like fish oil may reduce our ability to clot. Thus, roll up a piece of gauze, place it on to the bleeding site and apply firm pressure by biting down. If the bleeding does not stop after 30 minutes, please seek immediate medical attention.
