We understand dental emergencies never happen at a convenient time and we make every effort to see patients in pain or discomfort as soon as we can and whenever possible on the same day. If you do have a dental emergency, please contact us straightaway. We can get you booked in and our caring and experienced dental team can offer advice on how to deal with the problem until you can come in to see us.
Certain situations need immediate dental care. If you knock out a tooth, it might be possible to successfully reinsert it within the first half an hour to an hour. Carefully pick up the tooth by the crown and rinse off any dirt. Either gently reinsert it, holding it in position with a clean finger or by gently biting down on a clean tissue. Alternatively store it in a small container with a little saline solution, milk or saliva. Come to see us immediately or go to the emergency room. If you have a tooth infection and develop a fever or feel unwell, you will need emergency dental care. Please come to see us or go to the emergency room. A bad tooth infection can develop into an abscess that could potentially be life-threatening, so please do not ignore it.
If you need immediate dental attention, please call us on (03) 9467 6759. We are located at Suite 5, Level 1, 20 Scholar Drive, Bundoora VIC 3083.
