Understanding the Urgency of Dental Emergencies
When you’re facing a dental emergency, immediate care is crucial. It can relieve unbearable pain, save a tooth, and prevent the risk of more serious infections. Prompt treatment is key to dental health, and that’s why our clinic offers same-day emergency dentist appointments.
What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?
Identifying Your Urgent Dental Needs
A dental emergency can involve any situation that requires immediate attention to relieve severe pain, stop bleeding, or save a tooth. This includes but is not limited to broken or cracked teeth, lost fillings, toothaches, and the need for extractions or root canal treatments.

Immediate Care for Dental Trauma and Pain
Broken or Cracked Tooth/Lost Filling
A damaged tooth, whether it’s cracked, broken, or has a lost filling, needs urgent attention. We can provide a temporary solution to protect the tooth and alleviate discomfort before proceeding with a more permanent restoration.
A toothache can be debilitating, but our emergency services aim to address the pain quickly. Treatment may involve medication or procedures designed to target and eliminate the cause of your discomfort.
We understand the anxiety that comes with extractions. That’s why we apply a topical anaesthetic gel before any injections, ensuring a numbed area to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
Root Canal Treatment
When a tooth’s nerve is infected, a root canal treatment may be necessary to save it. In an emergency appointment, we can take measures to reduce pain and prepare the tooth for this procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Handle Severe Toothaches at the Clinic?
Severe toothaches often signal underlying issues that require immediate attention. At our clinic, we assess the cause of the pain and provide treatment or medication to manage it effectively, aiming to address the source of the problem promptly.
What Steps Are Taken to Ensure Comfort During Extractions?
Patient comfort is a priority, especially during extractions. We use topical anaesthetics followed by dental injections to fully numb the tooth. Our goal is to ensure a painless experience for our patients.
Can a Tooth Be Saved on the Same Day of an Emergency Visit?
In many cases, immediate actions can be taken to stabilize and save a tooth. Procedures like temporary fillings or the application of medicaments can protect the tooth until a follow-up appointment for definitive treatment.
What Should I Do If I Break or Crack My Tooth?
If you break or crack your tooth, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, avoid chewing on that side of your mouth and use over-the-counter pain relief if necessary. Contact our clinic for a same-day emergency appointment to address the injury and prevent further damage.
Is Root Canal Treatment Available During an Emergency Visit?
Yes, root canal therapy can begin during an emergency visit. We may place medication directly into the tooth to alleviate pain and combat infection as a temporary measure before completing the treatment.
