Emergency Dentist Melbourne CBD

Life throws curveballs at you always. Sometimes, those curveballs may come in the form of dental emergencies.

Some may require prompt dental care, while some may require a few deep breaths and an ounce of patience.

If it is a dental emergency, it’s good to know whether you should see your Melbourne CBD dentist.

Knowing your symptoms and the severity of your conditions will help you decide which path is best for you.

Is it a Dental Emergency?

There are dental emergencies that may need immediate treatment, while others can wait to be treated.

Determine the difference between these kinds of problems, if they occur at night or during the weekend when most dental clinics are closed.

Signs you may have a dental emergency:

  • Loosened or dislodged tooth/teeth
  • Continuous, heavy bleeding
  • Trauma to the jaw
  • Swelling associated with pain
  • Toothache or dental pain

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dental emergency?

With dental emergencies, usually obvious and immediate action is required to address severe pain, discomfort, or trauma to the mouth that may cause bleeding and cuts to the gums and dislodged or fractured teeth.

Some cases, like lost fillings, chipped veneers, or broken dental appliances — don’t constitute an emergency.

How soon should I see a dentist?

Immediately. Getting to your Melbourne CBD dentist within 30 minutes after the injury can make the difference between saving or losing your tooth.

How long does a toothache last?

The duration of a toothache is dependent on the cause of the pain. If the symptoms last for more than 24 hours, visit your Melbourne CBD dentist as soon as possible.
