Pain should never be ignored

Especially when experienced in the teeth or gums. Rarely do painful dental issues resolve by themselves. When you’re faced with a dental problem that needs immediate attention, Tea Tree Dental is here to provide you with expert care and relief. Our dedicated team of dentists is well-equipped to handle a wide range of emergency dental, from broken teeth to abscesses and infections.

In this article, we’ll guide you through the types of dental emergencies you may face, how to book an appointment, and what to expect when you visit our practice.

What is a Dental Emergency?

Tea Tree Dental’s experienced dentists have extensive knowledge in managing dental emergencies. Here are some common emergencies we can address:

Broken teeth

A tooth can chip, crack, or fracture at any time. Small chips and cracks will not require a visit to an emergency dentist, and broken tooth repair can be delayed until a regular appointment is available. However, an emergency dentist visit is recommended if you’re experiencing severe discomfort or continuous bleeding.

Tooth loss

If you’ve experienced a knocked-out tooth, immediate action is crucial. Preserve the tooth and contact us immediately for reattachment or assessment to protect the surrounding gum tissue.

Sports injuries

Trauma during sports activities can lead to dental emergencies. We’ll assess the damage and provide the necessary treatment.


Experiencing constant pain in your teeth can be due to many reasons. We highly recommend scheduling a check-up immediately rather than waiting for the pain to intensify. However, pain doesn’t always run to your schedule, so don’t delay calling us to find out how we can help you. The pain may be due to an abscess or infection and require extraction or root canal treatment to prevent further complications.

Crown and bridge fractures

Symptoms may include tenderness when biting down or chewing, a sharp pain when releasing from biting pressure, irritated gums or localized swelling around the cracked teeth. If you have a damaged crown or bridge, our team can repair or replace it to restore your bite back to normal.

Wisdom teeth

Problematic wisdom teeth often require extraction to reduce pain and avoid dangerous swelling of the face. Our dentists have the expertise to perform this procedure safely and efficiently.


For patients experiencing issues with dentures, we offer emergency repairs and adjustments to ensure comfort and functionality.

Professional Guidance

While we understand the need for immediate relief, we discourage attempting to manage dental emergencies at home. Seek professional advice as soon as possible. For knocked-out adult teeth, rinse the tooth if dirty and reposition it as quickly as possible. Bite on a clean cloth to keep it in place, and visit our practice promptly. For other emergencies, seeking dentist intervention for proper evaluation and treatment is essential.

At Tea Tree Dental, we prioritize your comfort and well-being, especially during dental emergencies. With our convenient appointment booking options, extensive knowledge of emergency dental care, and flexible payment options, we are here to provide you with the comfort and support you need.
