How do I know if I have a dental emergency?
If something changes with your oral health, you might wonder if it’s time for an emergency dental visit. Some dental emergencies require immediate attention, while others can wait a couple of days until it’s more convenient for you.
Immediate Dental Emergencies
Any time you feel dental pain, it is a good idea to seek professional dental treatment as quickly as possible. A toothache generally means that the nerve is involved and pain can quickly turn from a minor annoyance to a major life disruption without immediate dental treatment.
- Toothache or swelling
- Knocked-out (avulsed) tooth
- Broken tooth
- Sports or auto accidents
Other Dental Emergencies
A broken dental filling or crown can sometimes be postponed until the next convenient appointment time. If a crown becomes loose or falls off, hold onto it and give us a call.
If you ever have doubts about whether you are experiencing a dental emergency, our GoldCity Dental Centre team will guide you through the process so that you don’t put your oral health at risk by waiting too long.
If you do not yet have an emergency dentist in the Charters Towers area, we always welcome new patients. We warmly invite you to get in touch.
