Any dental emergency like an injury to the teeth or gums can be serious and should not be ignored.

Ignoring a dental emergency can increase the risk of more significant damage as well as the need for more extensive and expensive treatment.

Is it a Dental Emergency?

Some dental issues require immediate response, while others can wait to be treated.

It’s important to know the difference between these kinds of problems, particularly if the problem happens in the middle of the night or over the weekend when most dental offices are closed.

Here are some signs that you may have an urgent dental emergency:

  • Loose or knocked-out permanent tooth
  • Non-stop bleeding
  • Jaw injury
  • Swelling with pain
  • Toothache

Dental emergencies should be dealt with immediately. Call your same-day emergency dentist Casula immediately if you experience any of the abovementioned problems.

Time is important in any dental emergency and contacting us for advice and/or treatment is imperative!

Our experienced and skilled dentists and our friendly staff know how to respond to any dental emergency.
