Emergency Dental Care

Man with severe mouth painIf you’re in pain and need last-minute emergency dental care, we’re always here to help. Whites Dental Care is arranged to accommodate same-day emergency treatments for new and existing patients alike.

Common dental emergencies that we see include:

  • Broken or chipped enamel
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Loose crowns
  • Fillings that have fallen out
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Toothaches
  • Wisdom tooth pain

When you contact our dental surgery, we’ll aim to see you straightaway. We block out specific times each day to accommodate unexpected dental emergencies. If you’re contacting our dental surgery after hours we will do our best to contact you as soon as possible.

If you’re in pain or not sure what to do, we’ll walk you through a brief consultation to determine the root cause of your issue and then guide you through the next steps to take. Sometimes that means prescribing a medication to alleviate the initial infection and pain, then seeing you the next business day.

Children playing rugbyAdults, teens and children who participate in sports are at a higher risk of dental emergencies, concussions and facial lacerations.

A great way to lower your chances of a dental emergency is to wear a fitted sports mouthguard. Such appliances safeguard your teeth.

Should You Go to the Hospital?

If you’re experiencing severe swelling that’s spreading into your face or suspect a broken jaw, you need to go straight to the emergency room. However, tooth-specific problems are usually best treated by a dentist.

What to Do If You Knock Out a Tooth

Broken and knocked-out teeth require fast action. Locate the tooth and store it completely submerged in saline, contact solution, milk or tap water with a pinch of salt.  Aim to get to our emergency dentist within the hour or the local hospital so the tooth may be reinserted.
