Emergency Dental Care You Can Depend On
Our dental team treats dental emergencies with the utmost care, skill and attention – saving your teeth may depend on it.
We understand the pain, stress and anxiety one may experience from a sudden acute oral condition or unexpected injury. One of our top priorities is to help put our patients at ease – from kids to seniors – by providing immediate pain relief and comforting dentistry care.
Not all oral injuries or acute oral conditions require emergency dental treatment. A minor chipped tooth from biting on a cherry pit or losing a filling can probably wait till you book the next available appointment.
For more severe tooth injuries, you should seek immediate treatment. However, choosing between a dentist and a hospital emergency department can be a critical decision.
A physical impact – such as a sports injury or a falling accident – that causes major damage to your teeth and gums, may also have resulted in concussion – and possible bleeding in your brain. In this case, it is advisable to go straight to a hospital emergency department for urgent medical assessment, observation and treatment.
The following oral injuries and acute oral conditions definitely require emergency dental treatment (if not accompanied by any signs of head injury):
The following types of dental emergencies may require emergency dental attention:
- Knocked-out tooth – an avulsed tooth can be reimplanted successfully within an hour of being knocked out.
- Extruded tooth – a tooth that has shifted from its usual position, and is in a “hanging by a thread” situation.
- Broken tooth – a piece of tooth that has broken away, resulting in bleeding.
- Severe oral pain – as a result of trauma, even if there is no visible tooth damage.
- Severe oral bleeding – as a result of trauma, that doesn’t stop within a few minutes.
- Serious oral infections – with facial swelling and extreme pain.
- Broken or lost crowns – from a tooth that hasn’t received root canal treatment.
- Tooth abscesses – a painful infection of the tooth root.

Before an emergency occurs, take a little time to read the following dental emergency guides and articles available on our website:
What to expect during an emergency dental consultation
Typically our dental emergency appointments are around 30 minutes in duration.
During your emergency appointment, your treating dentist will conduct an examination to assess and diagnose your oral condition, and discuss the most appropriate dental treatment solutions with you.
We understand that in some acute dental emergencies, immediate care and attention are necessary to save a tooth or treat a severe infection. We also offer immediate pain relief as a temporary measure before you are assessed for a more permanent dental solution to your oral condition.
Emergency dental quotes and informed financial consent
We provide an obligation-free quote for your preferred treatment plan – before you proceed with any dental treatment. This quote outlays the item numbers and service fees of all the dental procedures required as part of your treatment.
If you have private health cover, our HICAPS terminal allows for immediate health fund claims. We can also inform you of any out-of-pocket expenses incurred due to the difference between your benefit cover and your quoted fee – this ensures you make an informed decision regarding your follow-up dental treatment expenses.
FREE DENTAL CONSULTATIONS FOR SAME DAY TREATMENT
If you are willing and able to make an informed decision about the treatment option that best suits your needs and budget by the end of your consultation, we may be able to schedule same-day treatment.
We will look for an opening in our schedules so that you won’t have to return at a later date. This means your dental needs are conveniently assessed and treated on the same day you are in our clinic.
Another benefit for our emergency patients, who opt for same-day follow-up treatment, is the waiver of your dental consultation fee which will reduce your out-of-pocket expenses for the day.
