Common Dental Emergencies

There are several types of emergencies that commonly cause patients to seek our help:

  • Tooth pain – Often sudden in onset, you may feel there is no obvious cause. You shouldn’t ignore the discomfort, since many serious conditions may be present, such as a cavity, gum disease, an abscess, exposed tooth roots or an impacted tooth.
  • Chipped and fractured teeth – A trauma to the head or mouth or a simple action like biting on a hard object can break or chip a tooth. You may have a cavity that has weakened the tooth and not be aware. If you have the piece of the tooth that broke off, bring it in with you.
  • Lose teeth – Knocked out teeth can happen from an injury though there may occasionally be no apparent reason. Bring the tooth in with you, and as we may be able to replace it if you come in quickly enough. Otherwise, the gap can be addressed by a bridge or dental implant. If the tooth is dirty, rinse in cool water but avoid touching the root area with your fingers or water. Place it back in the socket if possible. If not, put it in a glass of milk.

Further emergency dental East Fremantle cases we see are dislodged teeth, objects stuck between teeth, a knocked out crown or filling, an infection and an injury to the palate or gums.
