Emergency Dentistry in Tuggerah

At Bluewater Dental, our focus is on preventing dental emergencies from occurring in the first place—through regular check-ups and cleans, and education about good oral hygiene. But not all emergencies can be prevented, and it’s important to come in for care as soon as you notice something is wrong. The longer you wait to get seen, the more complicated it becomes to treat the issue.

What Are Dental Emergencies?

Various factors can cause an emergency, which we will assess when we examine your teeth. But for practical purposes, an emergency typically involves a broken tooth (or crown), or pain.

By the time you experience pain and/or swelling, the underlying problem has likely existed for some time. Your symptoms may be caused by an infection, abscess or nerve irritation, for example, which can lead to bacteria buildup and decay.

Depending on your symptoms, we will take appropriate X-rays and photos to diagnose the underlying problem. We’ll explain everything we find and offer our treatment recommendations, along with all costs involved, so there are no surprises. In the case of pain caused by an infection or abscess, treatment may involve a root canal or extraction. If you have a broken tooth, we will assess whether we can save the tooth with a crown or if other treatment is necessary.

Same Day Appointments

Keep in mind that prompt action is the name of the game with a dental injury. It’s always better to err on the side of caution and seek the advice of a professional whenever an accident or injury involving the teeth or gums occurs.

Time is of the essence, so contact us immediately so we can address your emergency as soon as you arrive at our office. We keep slots available for emergencies, and we do our best to get you in the same day or the next day for emergency care.
