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. In some cases, we can also prescribe medication to alleviate the initial infection and pain, then see you the next business day.

Adults, 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.

I’ve Knocked Out a Tooth - What Do I Do?

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 visit us within the hour or the local hospital so the tooth can be reinserted.

When Should I Go to the Hospital?

If you’re experiencing severe swelling or you suspect a broken jaw, go straight to the hospital. However, tooth-specific problems are usually best treated by a dentist.
