An emergency dental care appointment still follows the same procedures – the dentist will examine your mouth, assess the problem, and provide solutions.
Sometimes a referral to a specialist is required, but we will provide emergency dental treatment to settle any discomfort or sensitivity.
If you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort, you can contact Nunyara Dental to schedule an emergency booking with one of our dentists.

Handle the tooth by the crown and rinse the tooth in milk or some saliva then try to gently hold it in place in the socket. If you’re not able to replant the tooth, keep it moist by immersing it in milk or saliva or placing it in the person’s mouth next to the cheek. Time is critical so contact us immediately for an emergency appointment.
Clean the area by rinsing the mouth with warm water. Use an ice pack or a cold compress to reduce swelling. The urgency depends on the severity but contact us immediately for an emergency appointment.
If swelling is present, place an ice pack or cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek. Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between your teeth. For quick relief, ask your dentist or pharmacist about any over-the-counter pain medication. If the pain persists, contact us immediately for an emergency appointment.
Clean the area gently with warm, salty water. Then apply pressure to the area with an ice pack or cold compress, if bleeding continues after about 15 minutes, contact us immediately for an emergency appointment.
Regular warm salt water rinsing can help alleviate discomfort until you’re able to see your dentist. It can cause more widespread infection and may be life-threatening, so it’s important to contact us immediately for an emergency appointment.
If a cavity develops underneath a filling or crown, it can become loose and eventually fall out. A new filling or crown will be needed, so it’s important to contact us for an emergency appointment.
Try to clean the wound straight away and contact us for an emergency appointment as soon as possible. If bleeding persists, place pressure on the wound using gauze.
Apply an ice pack or cold compress to the outside of the face to reduce swelling and rinse your mouth out with warm salty water every couple of hours. The urgency depends on the severity but contact us immediately for an emergency assessment.
As soon as your porcelain veneer is dislodged, it’s important to store it and bring it with you to your emergency appointment. Don’t try to put the veneer back on yourself. This can lead to serious damage to the veneer as well as the underlying tooth structure.
Depending on how severe your jaw, oral or dental pain is you may need to see a dentist immediately. In case you cannot reach our dental team straight away, try gargling salt water, taking a painkiller, or applying an ice pack or cold compress to alleviate some discomfort prior to your appointment.
Your situation may vary and the above is not to be considered medical advice.
