Emergency Dentistry

How to ease symptoms before your appointment

If you have a dental emergency, we’ll fit you in at the earliest opportunity. However, it may take several hours until you get to our 24-hour dental clinic in Sydney and receive the necessary care. This may seem like an eternity, especially if you have an acute toothache or an appalling injury.

Don’t brace yourself for ever-mounting discomfort. Here’s a range of at-home remedies you can use to minimise the symptoms until you see your emergency dentist in Sydney:

  • Toothache. Painkillers are arguably the most reliable line of defence when your teeth hurt. Take medication that is not contraindicated for you, put ice on your cheek and avoid chewing if possible.
  • Fractured tooth or injury. You may have bleeding when your tooth cracks. Ice and gauze pads are universally recommended to shrink vessels and staunch the bleeding. Further treatment will be provided by our after-hours dentists in Sydney.
  • Abscess. It often happens that you are baffled by the unexpected signs of a dental infection at night or early in the morning. If you have an abscess and growing tenderness in the tooth area, you can numb it with cold remedies and try a saltwater rinse.
  • Lost filling or crown. Not all of such cases require emergency dental services in Sydney. However, if a lost structure causes stabbing pain or the uncovered tooth feels extremely sharp, cover the area with gauze and take a painkiller. Make sure there’s no risk of swallowing the detached crown.

Regardless of the specific emergency, you’ll want to abstain from hot and cold drinks and foods. They may wreak havoc on your pain by sharpening dental sensitivity, making it harder to wait for your Sydney emergency dental appointment.If you are unsure whether your situation is an ER one, call (02) 9456 6557.
