Unexpected Emergencies

No one plans for them, but unfortunately, emergencies and accidents do happen. So, we plan for the unplanned. At Keys Dental, we keep several appointments available each day to ensure our patients are able to have their dental emergencies seen to on the day.

We want to see you smiling again as quickly as possible. So, we recommend calling first thing in the morning as these appointments can go very quickly.

We're here to help you get your smile back. Here are some common dental emergencies that the Keys Dental team can help you with.

What if I am in pain but can’t afford the treatment? Icons/Icon_ArrowDown_48x48_Grey

We don’t want you to be in pain! Where we can we will provide you with the initial stages of treatment that will get you out of pain. Then we can arrange a treatment plan that will help you phase your treatment into more manageable portions to suit your finances.

We do provide onsite health fund claiming facilities and electronic payment facilities. We also accept ZipPay if you have an account set up with them.

I have facial swelling what should I do?Icons/Icon_ArrowDown_48x48_Grey

Facial swelling is not a good sign. It often indicates that you have a significant dental infection that is unlikely to heal on its own. First things first, you need to book an emergency appointment just to be sure.

Please do not wait to see if it will sort itself out. Dental infections that result in facial swelling can very quickly progress to other very serious medical conditions that may see you hospitalised. At the first sign of dental related facial swelling contact our team to arrange an emergency dental appointment so we can start treatment as soon as possible.
