Your go-to for an emergency dentist in Sydney

If you’re experiencing significant dental pain, sensitivity or discomfort, this is generally a good indicator from your body that something is wrong. When you are hurting or have suffered a dental accident, it is important to relax and seek prompt emergency dental care. It’s important that you don’t delay when seeking treatment or use any unsubstantiated remedies; doing so can lead to permanent damage that can be difficult or costly to repair later on.

It’s important for your health that you don’t ignore clear signs from your body that something is wrong. Any form of significant dental pain, sensitivity, or discomfort should be immediately addressed. If you wait too long, you may cause permanent damage, so it’s best to seek professional help whenever you feel that your pain is at an abnormal level. When you are hurting or have suffered a dental accident, it is essential to try to relax and then seek prompt emergency dental care.

Pain Management in the Meantime

It’s important to know how to manage your pain before it gets more severe. Our emergency services — though open after-hours — cannot be available 24/7. That’s why it’s recommended that you follow several steps for pain management in the meantime.

About Smiles Dental Centres - Tooth Ache
When feeling general toothache — and you can’t get to an emergency dentist — it is best to clean around the tooth gently with warm salt water, rinsing to displace any debris that may be trapped between the teeth. If there is facial swelling, apply a cold compress. Under no circumstances use aspirin on the gum or aching tooth. It’s best to avoid questionable remedies without first consulting a professional. Possible causes of significant toothache include infection and abscesses, but it is impossible to diagnose without directly observing the issue. If you continue to feel considerable pain and discomfort, don’t wait. Contact us immediately, and we can book an emergency dentist to assess your issue.

Knocked Out Teeth
To save your tooth, you have to act quickly. Managing pain when you have a knocked-out tooth is also vital. Preservation is key, so first, you must find the tooth. Make sure to handle it by the crown — the top of the tooth — and not the root. Perform a carefully thorough and quick rinse before trying to reinsert it into the socket. Hold it in the socket by biting down on a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If you cannot reinsert the tooth transport it in a cup of clean water or milk, do not let it dry out. Additionally, do not scrape or remove any tissue or gum fragments that may be attached to the tooth. Immediately contact us to find an emergency dentist in Sydney that can help you manage the pain and save your tooth.
About Smiles Dental Centres - Fractured Teeth
Broken, Chipped, Fractured Teeth
Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to manage the swelling. Make sure to try and locate any lost fragments. In the case of very loose teeth, removal is preferable to prevent swallowing or inhalation. For additional help, you must call us for professional emergency dental care.
About Smiles Dental Centres - Broken or Lost Dental
Broken or Lost Dental Appliance (Aligners, Dentures, Fillings, Crowns, etc.)
Professional and qualified help is required to deal with broken or damaged appliances. You may also experience toothache with a lost or broken crown or filling, so contact us immediately to get emergency dental care in Sydney.


What is considered to be a dental emergency?

Emergency dentists are on call for any unexpected dental issues you might encounter. From a chipped tooth to sudden pain, our team can help.

Some issues that are covered by emergency dental care include:

  • Sudden loss of a tooth or a cracked tooth
  • The loss of a filling, cap or crown
  • Intense or sudden toothache
  • Sudden jaw pain
  • A broken or lost dental appliance (such as a plate or aligner)

Is my dental problem an emergency?

Suppose you’ve suddenly started experiencing significant pain, or your dental problem arose unexpectedly and is now affecting your ability to eat, drink or sleep without discomfort. In this case, you’re facing a problem that requires an emergency dental care Sydney specialist.

Does a dentist have to treat you in an emergency?

At About Smiles, we recommend seeking an expert emergency dental care Sydney specialist if you’ve had any unexpected dental damage. If you’re unsure whether your dental issue is classified as an emergency, don’t hesitate to talk to us and get an expert opinion on your problem.

When is tooth pain an emergency?

If you are experiencing any significant amount of pain that affects your ability to function normally, this is classified as an emergency. Severe pain indicates a serious dental problem, and you must receive fast treatment before the problem becomes worse.

Whether the emergency dental care solution may fall under general dentistry or a more advanced procedure, it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis of the problem immediately. Unlike cosmetic dental issues, emergency dentistry is required to ensure you can properly eat, drink and more your jaw comfortably.
