What To Do When You Encounter Dental Emergencies?

When faced with a dental emergency, it’s essential to know the immediate steps to take before seeking professional help. Here are some common dental emergencies and tips on what you can do until you can reach our emergency dentist service in Perth, WA.


First, start by rinsing your mouth with warm water and gently flossing the area to remove any debris. If the toothache persists, it’s important to contact our emergency dentist in Perth immediately for prompt evaluation and treatment.

Knocked-out tooth

If a tooth is knocked out, time is of the essence. Stay calm and find the actual tooth, handling it by the crown (top) without removing any tissue fragments. Rinse it quickly in milk or saliva to remove dirt or debris, and try to gently hold it in place in the socket. If unable to reposition the tooth, keep it moist by immersing it in milk or saliva (not water), sealing it in plastic wrap, or placing it next to the cheek. Contact our emergency dentist immediately for an emergency appointment.

Gum abscess and swelling 

In case of gum abscess or swelling, it is crucial to contact our after-hours emergency dentist without delay. We can provide pain relief and prescribe antibiotics to settle the infection. Once the area has been assessed, we will devise a comprehensive treatment plan to address the underlying issue.

Broken Tooth

Any obvious damage to a tooth should be treated promptly to prevent further complications. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, leading to future problems. Our emergency dentists in Perth have the expertise to assess the damage and provide appropriate treatment to prevent further damage and restore the tooth’s integrity.

Wisdom tooth pain

To alleviate wisdom tooth pain temporarily, apply an ice pack to the outside of the face for 20 minutes to reduce swelling. Additionally, rinsing the mouth with warm salty water every 2 to 3 hours can provide relief.

Remember, when facing a dental emergency, time is of the essence. Contact Spring Orchid Dental immediately for prompt assistance and let our experienced team provide the necessary care and guidance to address your dental emergency effectively.

1. What To Do When You Have A Toothache And The Dentist Is Closed?

When your dentist’s office is closed, you should visit the emergency room (ER) when you’re in excruciating pain or have bleeding that won’t stop. Dial your dentist’s number and describe the scenario if you are not in extreme pain.

2. What Is The Most Common Emergency To Occur In The Dental Office?

In dental clinics, vasodepressor syncope is the most frequent emergency.  It is recognized as a commonly seen disorder where there is a sudden consciousness loss accompanied by a drop in arterial blood pressure.

3. What Will An Emergency Dentist Do?

Any type of dental emergency, from broken teeth to dislocated jaws, can be treated by an emergency dentist, who is specially trained in doing so. For instance, your dentist might be able to put an avulsed tooth back into its socket so that it can reattach if you manage to get an appointment with them quickly.

4. When A Tooth Infection Becomes An Emergency?

If the infection has become extremely severe and cannot be treated with over-the-counter medication, the patient should seek immediate medical attention. If the patient is showing signs of having a tooth abscess, such as developing a fever, feeling chills, vomiting, or other symptoms.

5. How Long Can A Tooth Infection Go Untreated?

The maximum duration of an untreated tooth abscess is 12 months or more. However, such long time is coupled with usually dangerous consequences such as sepsis or death. Set up a dental appointment right away to ensure prompt treatment!

6. How Are Common Dental Emergencies Treated?​

The case and type of damage must be taken into consideration when treating dental emergencies. When a tooth has a chip or crack and a harsh toothache, your dentist might have to treat the infection as well as make repairs to the tooth, which may involve:

  • Fillings
  • Irrigation
  • Splinting
  • RCT

Your dentist might need to do the following if your tooth has been damaged, knocked loose, or has fallen out completely:

  • Filling
  • RCT
  • I & D
  • Splinting
  • Reimplantation
  • Antibiotics
