Should you require emergency dental treatment please contact the Surgery on 6231 7065.
We have emergency dental appointments available every day within opening hours
we will endeavour to see you on the same day.
- For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, keep it moist at all times. If you can,
try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that’s not possible,
place it in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Then, get to your dentist’s office right away.
- For a cracked tooth, immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area.
Put cold compresses on the face to keep any swelling down.
- If you bite your tongue or lip, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress.
- For toothaches, rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out.
Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth.
Do not put aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues.
- For objects stuck in the mouth, try to gently remove with floss but do not try
to remove it with sharp or pointed instruments.
When you have a dental emergency, it’s important to visit your dentist
or an emergency room as soon as possible.
