A sudden change in your oral health may raise the question if it is time to contact your emergency dentist in Darwin for a visit. In most cases, prompt treatment improves your options and gives you more choices when it comes to protecting your smile.

3 Signs You Need an Emergency Dental Visit in Darwin

We invite you to contact our dental clinic at the first sign of a problem. If you are ever in doubt, we welcome you to give us a call to speak with one of our helpful staff who can help you make an informed decision.

Your Tooth Breaks or Fractures

Even though a broken tooth is not always accompanied by pain, it should always be taken seriously. When enamel that protects your teeth becomes compromised, it makes further damage more likely.

Contacting our clinic straight away allows us to repair the tooth with a restoration that seals out bacteria and protects it when chewing. After an evaluation, we will be happy to discuss all of your options and respect the choice you make.

Your Tooth Is Knocked Out

A sporting accident or auto injury may dislodge or completely knock out a tooth. In some cases, we can still save the tooth. Contacting us immediately will improve the chances of saving your tooth without a dental bridge or implant. Be sure to keep your tooth moist by placing it back in the mouth or in a small container with milk.

You Have Pain or Inflammation

Pain is your body’s natural alarm system that something serious requires attention. Often, by the time dental pain occurs, the condition is well advanced and a prompt booking will not only help you feel better but will give us the chance to address the infection with a root canal or other treatment.

If you require an emergency dentist in Darwin, the Casuarina Square Dental Care Team is here to provide gentle, compassionate treatment when you need us most. Feel free to call us at any time if you feel you have a dental emergency. 

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
COVID-19 Update
 
In light of the government's easing of restrictions on dental practices, we have now reopened and welcome both new and existing patients to call 8927 9418 to book an appointment.

Rest assured, we are currently contacting patients who had their treatment deferred during Level 3 restrictions and we thank you for your cooperation and patience while we work through this.

Please remember, if you have a fever, dry cough and/or any flu like symptoms, phone ahead and let our friendly receptionists know to ensure the safety of our community.

Many thanks, Casuarina Square Dental Care
