  • Injury or trauma
  • Bleeding/Haemorrhage
  • Broken Tooth
  • Serious Infection
  • Severe pain lasting 1-2 days or more
  • Visible swelling

Dental Trauma

Frequently Asked Questions about Emergency Dental

Even the prospect of having pressing dental trauma alleviated can be daunting for those with dental phobia. Our services are designed specifically for patients with dental phobias, and we give you the option to choose general anaesthetic.

In the event your tooth is knocked out, you want to avoid touching the root to keep it intact. Rinse the tooth in water and if possible, put it back in your mouth where it came from. If that’s not possible, put the tooth in milk to keep it wet and preserve the root. Call us as soon as possible to
arrange an appointment.
