Emergency Dentist Perth | Open 6 Days a Week

If you need an emergency dentist in Perth we can help you.

If you’ve broken, chipped or lost a tooth you can rely on Clear Choice Dental for an emergency dental booking. Tooth pain is not only a horrible experience, it can also make eating and talking a difficult task. We aim to always have time on hand to cater to patients needing immediate attention, and we do this by scheduling appointments in a way that permits some wriggle room for emergency cases!

In an emergency dental appointment, the dentist will look at your mouth, diagnose the issue and give treatment and advice on what to do from there. Regardless of what the emergency requires, whether it be a filling or a polish, our skilled dentists can and will help you to the best of their ability. Only in serious cases, a referral to a separate doctor may be required. Preceding this, we will give dental treatment to soothe any persistent pain or inconvenience.

It always pays off to stay proactive as far as your oral health is concerned. There may be times when a dental emergency occurs and things are not all that convenient. Getting hold of a dentist for an emergency can definitely be a tricky thing. We have rescheduled our practice culture and have worked towards providing an option for emergency care.

With the addition of our Saturday trading hours, accessing emergency dental care is now easier than ever. In the event that you are unable to bear dental pain and consider your situation as an emergency one, call our receptionists and they will arrange for a dentist to prepare for your arrival.

Here are a few dental emergencies that are quite common:

  • Lost or chipped teeth because of trauma or sports: Dental trauma calls for immediate attention and management so that the damage can be minimized. If a tooth has completely fallen out, place it in a cup of milk; if just a chip has come off, place it in a glass of water, and see your dentist A.S.A.P.
  • Toothache
  • Lip, soft tissue or gum trauma
  • Abscess
  • Broken jaw
  • Pain from wisdom teeth
  • Lost fillings or tooth fractures

Dental Emergencies – FAQs

A dental emergency is a condition that occurs suddenly, or develops quickly, and requires immediate attention by your dentist. Some common dental emergencies include:

  • Toothache
  • Trauma
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Loose or knocked-out tooth/teeth
  • Wisdom Tooth Pain

A toothache is usually a sign of a serious problem requiring treatment from your dentist. For toothache pain relief, you may apply an over-the-counter topical anesthetic containing benzocaine, or low dose prescription-strength ibuprofen, on or around the aching tooth. In some cases of dental trauma, you may be given medication for pain and inflammation to manage the condition until you can see your dentist. Most importantly see a dentist to get it resolved.

If pain continues, or if there is bleeding or pus coming out from a damaged tooth area, see a dentist immediately. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen to manage discomfort until you can see your dentist.

If the crown, bridge, or permanent restoration falls out, take the tooth into your mouth and hold it by the chewing surface. If this cannot be done, place it in a glass of milk. While holding the tooth, try to find the missing restoration by examining the chewing surface of the tooth. If it can be found, place it back into the tooth socket, or in the milk. If you cannot find it, take the tooth and milk to your dentist’s office as soon as possible. If the tooth cannot be saved, your dentist will either reattach the crown or bridge, or they will most likely recommend replacement.

Most, but not all dental emergencies may be covered depending on your insurance policy. To be sure, it is best to check with your private health insurance you are with.

Most emergency dental care services are provided at a rate that is regulated by the Dental Board of Australia. If you have issues with payment, we offer finance options such as Afterpay, Zip Pay, Humm Finance (available at our Maddington clinic only).
