Or perhaps you’ve had a recent trauma to the mouth that resulted in a chipped or broken tooth. Nobody wants to experience discomfort that can compromise their oral health.

At Eastwood Dental Clinic, we focus on pain-free, stress-free dental care and welcome patients with an emergency to contact us for immediate attention that day.

What qualifies as a dental emergency?

  • Some common emergency dental situations are
  • A damaged restoration, such as a crown, bridge or filling
  • Cracked, broken or chipped teeth
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • Toothaches

If you’re unsure about your situation, our friendly team is ready to discuss it with you and assess your needs.

What should I do until I can see the dentist?

Dentist Dr Khurram Usman advises patients with a knocked-out tooth to avoid handling it. If possible, put the tooth back in the socket but be careful not to swallow it. If it doesn’t stay put, keep it in a container of milk or your saliva.

If there is bleeding, apply a wet, cold compress to the tooth socket.

Are there any ways to prevent dental emergencies?

There are a few simple steps that you can take to avoid dental emergencies from happening, such as wearing a mouth guard during sport, not chewing on hard substances that can crack teeth such as ice or hard candy and never using teeth to cut anything.

Will you take X-rays?

We utilise low-radiation X-rays only when they’re needed. They can give a deeper insight to your needs and ensure that no problems go undetected. If we feel that they’re necessary, Dr Usman will discuss it with you. We’ll proceed with treatment as quickly as possible and make sure that your pain is relieved.
