It's all smiles from here on

If you have a tooth that is sensitive to temperature or uncomfortable when biting or eating, then it’s time to get it seen to. Different kinds of tooth pain have different causes. If you’re experiencing severe toothache, cracked tooth pain or even nerve pain in a broken tooth, it’s a sign that something is not right.

Getting a dentist to review your tooth early could prevent further deterioration and help to avoid more complex and costly treatments. In severe cases, without seeing a dentist, you could end up losing the tooth or allowing an infection to enter the blood stream, which then requires hospitalisation.

So it’s always worth checking, and at the very least, you could find out your teeth are in good health and you’ll have a better sleep for it!

Emergency appointments for toothache

We dedicate 50 to 60 minutes to your emergency appointment. This gives us the time to understand what might be causing you pain so that we can provide the best emergency treatment.

We want to see you back to your happy self as quickly as possible. So we reserve several appointments each day especially for these kinds of emergencies. These appointments can be snapped up quickly, so if you do experience toothache, it’s best to contact us first thing in the morning so we can attend to you quickly. You can also make a booking online.

There are occasions where you might need to come in for further treatment on your tooth. Your dentist might also recommend that you make an appointment for a thorough examination to make sure the rest of your teeth are happy as Larry.

The FAQs on Toothaches

Will you treat my dental emergency if I am not an existing patient?Icons/Icon_ArrowDown_48x48_Grey

Yes! We are always happy to see new patients and we help patients from all over Perth, not just those living in Joondalup, Ocean Keys and Mindarie. Because we reserve several appointments each day especially for emergencies, many of our emergency patients are new to our practice at the time of their dental emergency.

I am in so much pain, why didn’t the dentist take out my tooth? I was only given a prescription and told to make an appointment in a few days.Icons/Icon_ArrowDown_48x48_Grey

Sometimes an infection is so advanced that it can stop the anaesthetic from taking effect. Our best option then is to send you home with antibiotic to help treat the infection first. An appointment is then scheduled for a later date allowing time for the infection to subside. This way we can be confident that the anaesthetic will be effective when we next see you.

What if I don’t have enough money for my emergency treatment?Icons/Icon_ArrowDown_48x48_Grey

We want to see you smiling again as soon as possible. We also understand that unexpected dental treatment can be costly, especially if you are not covered under third party dental insurance. But we don’t want you to have to wait for your treatment, especially if you are in pain. So, we partner with ZipPay. This means you can receive the treatment you need right away and have the comfort of paying for the treatment over time.
