What Is a Dental Emergency?

However, we think everyone agrees that the symptoms above indicate a true dental emergency. But from our years of dentistry work, we have observed that patients often contact us for same-day emergencies with the following symptoms:

  • My tooth feels rough to my tongue without any pain
  • My tooth is broken with or without associated pain
  • I saw blood in my mouth when I brushed and flossed my teeth
  • I lost my orthodontic retainer
  • One of my teeth looks dark 
  • I am overdue for my check-up
  • My breath has a foul odour
  • I feel my wisdom teeth coming through

Regardless of your situation, the team at Edward St Dental assures you that we take all dental emergencies very seriously. In addition, we always set time aside in our schedule for emergency dental work. Our practice policy is to never turn away a client in need, and we guarantee to see your dental emergency on the day of contact.

Your Emergency Dentist’s Goal: Diagnose Discomfort, Treat Condition, and Relieve Pain

When you arrive at the clinic with your emergency, our first measure is to diagnose your immediate discomfort, plan treatment if necessary and give you a cost estimate. We will not perform any treatment until you give your consent. Our priority will be to relieve your pain.

Our trained staff have extensive experience in the management of oro-facial pain. We understand the vulnerable circumstances this puts some patients in, and we are committed to showing empathy and concern. From our policy to never turn away a client in need, we will see you on the day of contact wherever possible.

If Your Emergency Requires Multiple Visits

Patient getting emergency dental care in Brisbane CBDIn most cases, you will only need one visit to resolve your pain. Though there are exceptions, they are infrequent at Edward St Dental. Our team’s experience with oro-facial pain gives us an advantage when treating it; in some cases, however, you may need follow-up visits to complete the dental treatment to ensure the problem does not return.

Often, we will be able to offer multiple treatment options with varying costs and outcomes. Part of our philosophy is that our patients make the best decisions for their dental health after we resolve the immediate pain and trauma.

We prefer to provide care for you first, get you feeling better, and then give you more time to determine the best path moving forward.

Emergency Dental Care Appointments

Our policy at Edward St Dental is to see patients who have a dental emergency on the day of contact, and it bears repeating. The best way to get an appointment is to telephone the practice during business hours — call us on (07) 3221 5855.
