Am I having a dental emergency?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, at the instruction of the Australian Dental Association and Government health advisory bodies, we are restricting our services to all but emergency services. Call the practice for the emergency contact number.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

If you have a facial swelling or are in pain, then you are having a dental emergency. Call us so that we can examine you, diagnose the problem, and create a treatment plan. Other signs that indicate the need for an emergency appointment include:

A pimple-like lesion on your gum
A broken or cracked tooth
A foreign object lodged between your teeth
Swelling in the gum
A broken or lost dental restoration such as a filling or a crown

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
