If you have a dental emergency in Katoomba, our team rallies to get you treatment as soon as possible—this includes emergency dentistry during the COVID-19 pandemic. We never want you to wait it out, hope it gets better or mask the pain with pain relievers bought in shops. We want to restore your peace of mind and your oral health—relieving pain and helping you sleep with ease.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency can come in many forms, including:

  • Tooth pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Jaw swelling
  • Broken tooth
  • Tooth knocked out
  • Broken restoration
  • Restoration knocked out
  • Soft tissue trauma
  • Object lodged between teeth

There are so many types of dental emergencies that it is impossible to imagine every situation. For this reason, your emergency dentist in Katoomba recommends contacting a member of our dental team if you have a sudden oral health change or an ongoing oral health issue that is not natural.

When it comes to your oral health, it is always better to be cautious than to simply hope for the best. Your dentist always wants you to be safe and welcomes your call.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

The best ways to prevent dental emergencies is to be proactive about your oral health. This includes dental care, home care and wearing the right protective appliances like nightguards.

Visiting your dentist regularly for dental exams and teeth cleans means finding potential dental issues before they become bigger oral health concerns and clearing away the debris that may lead to cavities, infections, dental emergencies and gum disease.

You also want to be sure to wear your mouthguard if you participate in sports.

For Dental Emergencies, We Welcome Your Call

If you have a dental emergency, or if you’re unsure, we encourage you to contact a member of our dental team today.
