Toothache and jaw pain disrupts just about every part of life – sleep, work and time with family. If you wake up in pain, it’s time to get in touch with your emergency dentist in Darwin. At Casuarina Square Dental Care, we reserve emergency bookings each day to help patients who have a toothache or pain feel like themselves again quickly.

Unsure of whether your condition warrants an emergency visit to the dentist? Contact our team, and they will be happy to ask you a few questions to help you decide if you need to come in on the same day. Here are some of the most common dental emergencies we treat.

Toothache or jaw pain – Pain indicates a problem that involves the nerve. Often dental pain will become more severe as time goes by. If you wake up or start to notice dental pain throughout the day, let us know right away. The sooner we hear from you, the better chance there is that we can see you on the same day.

Broken tooth or crown – Fractured enamel or a broken restoration can expose the nerve and cause pain or sensitivity when chewing. Because the tooth is now open to bacteria, we should address your condition as soon as possible.

Knocked-out tooth – Sporting or vehicle accidents can cause damage, knocking them out or causing them to become crooked, though they may still be intact. Save the tooth, if possible, and give us a call right away.

Damaged dentures or partial dentures – While an emergency visit might not be necessary on the same day, we should make repairs or replace your dentures as quickly as possible.
