Emergency Dentist

Our emergency dentist provides dental treatment and pain relief for the whole family. We have emergency appointments available each day to help with unexpected problems such as toothaches, a knocked out tooth or other dental injuries.

One of the key signs of dental problems is a toothache. Toothaches may become severe over time and it is hard for patients to know how to get rid of a toothache. That’s where we can help. If you are in pain or need an urgent dental treatment, please call us to see how we can assist you. We welcome new patients as well as our valued existing patients.

 

Often, you can’t predict when a dental emergency will happen. Signs that you may need an emergency appointment include:Child in tears for toothahe and dentist bendigo at background

  • Ear pain or a headache- if you have a severe toothache, the pain can radiate to your ear and head.
  • Difficulty opening your mouth- the infection can spread into your muscle and limit muscle movement.
  • Pain while chewing-  pain caused by infection under the root can be triggered when chewing.
  • Difficulty speaking- the infection can spread to the tongue and throat, limiting the movement of these muscles.
  • Severe gum pain- infection in the gum can create pressure which stimulates pain nerve fibres.
  • Severe sensitivity to hot or cold food and drinks- the exposed nerves in the tooth and root stimulate pain fibres.

Additionally, a broken tooth or a dislodged filling that falls out unexpectedly can cause problems. The sharp edges may cut your tongue and cheek. If left untreated a broken tooth can cause ulcers and infection.

After a while, the tooth will become infected. Taking a dental x-ray will show the infected area in the picture. If infected you have to do either root canal treatment or extraction.

An accident that involves a knock on your teeth may also require urgent attention. It is important to see a dentist as soon as possible if you have had any trauma to your face, mouth or teeth.
