Emergency Dental

Dental emergencies can occur at anytime or anyplace, whether they be painful toothaches, severe oral infections or oral injuries. It is important to stay calm during a dental emergency, and administer appropriate first aid if required until emergency dental treatment can be sought.

Types of dental emergencies:

In the event of a dental emergency, the quicker emergency dental treatment is sought, the more likely it is that the risk of permanent damage or further infection is lowered. In the case of a knocked-out tooth, the time difference between saving and losing that tooth may only be a matter of minutes.

If the dental emergency involves head trauma/injury, or you suspect a fractured/broken jaw, locate and go straight to the Emergency Room of your nearest hospital emergency department in Perth.

Call 000 for an ambulance if the injured party is showing any of the following symptoms:

  • secretion of clear fluid or bleeding from orifices (ears, nose or mouth)
  • unconsciousness, disorientation, dizziness, paralysis or extreme weakness
  • vision, speech or breathing difficulties
