Emergency Dentist Sydney
Have a dental emergency? Book a same day appointment with our Sydney CBD emergency dentists at 135 Macquarie Street.
Emergency dental care can’t wait. If you need advice from a professional over the phone, or you need to see a dentist right away, call our emergency dentists in Sydney on (02) 9221 1530.
Our emergency dental clinic is open Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm, but we can arrange after hours appointments if you need urgent care at other times. We’re conveniently located at 135 Macquarie Street in Sydney CBD.
What should I do in a dental emergency?
If you injure your mouth or jaw, have a sudden tooth pain or another problem that needs urgent care, seeing a dentist right away can sometimes make all the difference. Our emergency dentists in Sydney keep appointments available every day for patients who can’t wait.
When you arrive at our dental clinic, our team will be ready to provide prompt care in a calm and reassuring manner. We’ll treat your urgent symptoms and give you a complete assessment to identify any problems and discuss appropriate treatment options.
Even if you don’t need to see us immediately, talking to a Sydney emergency dentist for advice could help you to manage any pain, swelling, bleeding and other symptoms and improve your chances of making a full recovery. We still recommend you make an appointment to see us. So our dentists can check your condition and provide any treatments you need.
What should I do if I have a sudden toothache?
There can be many reasons for a toothache, from injuries and trauma to tooth decay.
Taking painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen could provide temporary relief (making sure you follow the prescribed dose), but it’s also important to find out what’s causing the toothache, as it could be a symptom of a more serious issue.
Make an appointment at our dental clinic for a diagnosis and to discuss any treatments needed.
What should I do if I have a swelling?
Inflammation (swelling) is caused by an infection or irritation. It can sometimes go away by itself, and could be relieved by applying an ice pack or cold compress to the outside of your mouth, but it can also be a sign of something more serious.
Contact our Sydney CBD emergency dentists to arrange an appointment at the nearest convenient time. If you have an infected tooth, this may be treated with a root canal.
What if I’ve fractured my tooth?
Tooth pain and sensitivity to temperature can be signs of a cracked tooth. Cracks in teeth aren’t always visible to the naked eye, but they can leave your tooth vulnerable to infection the longer it’s left untreated.
If your tooth is chipped or cracked, make an appointment with our dentists as soon as possible. We’ll identify all damaged areas and discuss treatments such as bonding or placing a filling or dental crown to restore the tooth’s original shape and strength.
What if I’ve knocked a tooth out?
Losing a tooth can be upsetting, but it’s important not to panic. There’s still a chance we could save your teeth if you can get to our Sydney CBD emergency dentist within 1 hour. (Note that this only applies to permanent teeth – baby teeth can’t be replaced, as this can damage the adult tooth growing underneath).
For the best chance of saving a knocked-out tooth, you should:
- Only pick it up by the crown (the top of the tooth) – not the roots
- Wipe the crown gently if you need to remove dirt – don’t use water
- Try to place the tooth back into its socket and hold it in place with a clean cloth
- If the tooth won’t fit in the socket, place it in a container or plastic wrap with milk or saliva – not water
What if I’ve lost a crown?
A lost or broken crown, filling or veneer is also considered a dental emergency, as this could affect your ability to eat normally or could expose the underlying tooth to bacteria. Make an appointment with our dentists so we can check your teeth for any signs of damage and discuss treatment options.
If you find the crown and it’s intact, there’s a chance our dentists could reattach it. Otherwise, we’ll need to design and fit a new custom restoration.
What if I’ve broken my denture?
Broken dentures are normally easier to repair than other types of dental work, but this depends on how severe the damage is.
Don’t try to repair dentures yourself, as this could make the problem worse – contact our dentists to arrange denture repairs or have new dentures made.
How much does an emergency dentist in Sydney cost?
The cost of emergency dental care depends on the situation and the type of treatment you need, so it’s not possible to estimate costs until our dentists have completed an assessment. We’ll make sure you have a breakdown of costs so you can make fully informed decisions about your treatments.
We accept all health funds at our clinic, if your insurance includes dental cover. We also offer a choice of flexible payment plans to help make emergency dental care more affordable, so you don’t have to worry about the cost when you’re getting the treatment you need.
