What Should I Do in A Dental Emergency?

Here’s everything you need to know if you find yourself in one of the situations listed below. For more information or to talk to a member of our caring team, please call 03 8608 7974.

Toothache from Abscess: Do you have a persistent and throbbing pain in your mouth or jaw that is keeping you awake at night? If this pain isn’t being alleviated by pain medication, then it is recommended that you come in to our practice to seek assistance. Additionally, if you have swelling or fever and a continued reaction to heat, cold or pressure, then treatment is required.

We recommend only using a cold compress or rinsing your mouth with tepid salt water to ease the discomfort until you can make it to our practice. Additionally, if possible, please have a friend or family member drive you to your appointment.

Knocked Out Tooth: It isn’t uncommon to lose a tooth due to a sporting injury or other trauma. Note that a knocked-out tooth can sometimes be saved if you seek emergency dental assistance within 30 minutes. If your tooth has been knocked out of its socket yet you have the tooth with you, please do the following ASAP.

Broken or Chipped Teeth: This is perhaps one of our most common dental emergencies. If you’ve lost a filling or are experiencing a broken or chipped tooth due to trauma or injury, then we advise that you see your dentist as soon as you can, with urgency depending on the pain present.

If experiencing pain, discomfort, or swelling, placing a cold compress on the face next to the injured tooth may assist to minimize these symptoms.

Braces or Retainer Issues: If your appliance breaks or causes pain and discomfort (i.e. wires sticking into cheeks), then please see your orthodontist or dentist who performed the procedure. Soft wax, a cotton ball or tip, or first-aid kit gauze may be used to cover the part of your appliance that is causing injury until you can seek help.


Emergency dental services can include treatments such as pain relief, dental fillings, tooth extraction, treatment for dental abscesses, and repair of chipped or broken teeth. The specific treatment provided will depend on the nature and severity of the dental emergency.

To quickly find an emergency dentist near you, you can:
  • Use a search engine: Search for "emergency dentist near me" or "24-hour emergency dentist near me" to find local options.
  • Use online directories: Websites like Yelp or Healthgrades can help you find emergency dentists in your area.
  • Contact your regular dentist: Your regular dentist may offer emergency services or be able to refer you to someone who does.
  • Ask for recommendations: Friends, family, or coworkers may be able to recommend an emergency dentist they have used in the past

Wisdom tooth removal techniques include simple extractions for fully erupted teeth and surgical extractions for impacted teeth, typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation to minimize discomfort and anxiety. Things to keep in mind:

  1. You shouldn't feel any pain during the procedure due to the anesthesia. If you do experience discomfort, let your dentist know right away.
  2. The entire procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours, depending on the complexity of the extraction. It's normal to experience some swelling, discomfort, and bleeding after the procedure.
  3. Your dentist will provide you with specific instructions on post-operative care, including pain medication and how to manage swelling.
  4. If you're considering wisdom teeth removal, consulting with your dentist or oral surgeon is the best course of action. They can assess your individual situation, explain the specific techniques they might use, and answer any questions you may have.
