What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can range from severe toothaches to knocked-out teeth or traumatic injuries to the mouth. Some common dental emergencies include:

  • Severe toothache or abscess
  • Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • Knocked-out or dislodged teeth
  • Soft tissue injuries (lacerations, cuts, or puncture wounds in the mouth)
  • Broken or loose dental appliances (braces, wires, etc.)

Additional Emergency Dental Services

At Totalcare Dental & Dermal in Bondi Junction, we’re equipped to handle a wide range of dental emergencies promptly and efficiently. Some of the common procedures we perform include:

Root Canal Therapy

If you’re experiencing severe toothache or an abscess, root canal therapy may be necessary to save your natural tooth. During this procedure, our skilled dentists remove the infected or inflamed pulp from inside the tooth, clean and disinfect the area, and seal it to prevent further infection.

Dental Fillings

For minor cracks, chips, or cavities, our dentists can restore your tooth’s structure and function with tooth-coloured fillings. These fillings not only repair the damage but also blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Dental Crowns

In cases of more severe tooth damage or decay, a dental crown may be necessary. A crown is a custom-made cap that covers the entire tooth surface, restoring its strength, appearance, and functionality.

Tooth Extractions

In some cases, a tooth may be too severely damaged or decayed to be saved. Our gentle dentists will perform a tooth extraction as a last resort, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon should I seek treatment for a dental emergency?

It’s essential to seek treatment as soon as possible for dental emergencies. Delaying treatment can lead to further complications and more extensive (and costly) treatments down the line.

Do you accept emergency walk-ins?

While we always recommend scheduling an appointment, we understand that dental emergencies can happen unexpectedly. Our team will do our best to accommodate emergency walk-ins whenever possible.

What should I do if I've knocked out a tooth?

If you’ve knocked out a tooth, try to find the tooth and handle it by the crown (the white part), avoiding touching the root. Gently rinse it off and try to reinsert it into the socket. If that’s not possible, place it in a cup of milk or saliva and bring it with you to our clinic as soon as possible.

Do you offer sedation options for dental emergencies?

Yes, we understand that dental emergencies can be stressful and painful. We offer various sedation options, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation, to help you feel more comfortable during your procedure.
