Where Should I Go for Dental Emergency in Auckland?
If you have a dental emergency, call our clinic and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.
Unless your injury is a serious and/or life-making threat, we don’t advise going to the ER. If you have a cracked jaw, a dislocated jaw, serious cuts to the face or mouth that won’t stop bleeding, or a huge dental abscess that makes breathing and swallowing difficult, go to the hospital.
A medical doctor’s only option for anything else is to write you a prescription for antibiotics and pain medications. The underlying cause of your pain and discomfort can only be treated by an emergency dentist.
Urgent Dental Emergencies
Urgent Dental Emergencies If your personal dentist is unavailable or you have an emergency, you can count on us for emergency dental care.
We are trusted by many area dentists to provide emergency root canals, tooth extractions, and other emergency dental services to their patients. The sooner you get emergency dental treatment, the more likely you are to be able to restore your smile and ease your discomfort.
Seek urgent dental care for:
- Severe tooth pain
- Gums swollen
- Teeth that are loose
- Teeth that have been knocked out
- A broken tooth or large piece of the tooth is missing
- A tooth with a large crack or chip
NON-URGENT DENTAL EMERGENCIES
You will be able to schedule an appointment during regular office hours if you have a non-urgent dental emergency. This means that if your filling falls out on a Saturday afternoon, you can get a replacement filling set on Monday morning.
Non-urgent dental emergencies include:
- Whether it’s a missing filling, crown, or bridge
- Dull toothache
- Food lodged between teeth
- A small chip or crack in the tooth
Often, quick thinking is what saves a tooth from needing to be extracted. Request an appointment with our emergency dentist as soon as possible if you are experiencing tooth discomfort. You can relieve discomfort and prevent lasting damage to your teeth and gums by seeking emergency dental care as soon as possible. A quick response might also save you money on costly dental repairs to restore your smile.
Preventing Dental Emergencies
We can help you safeguard your teeth from disease or injury in addition to emergency dental services. When playing contact sports, for example, a tailored mouth guard will protect your teeth and gums. A dental emergency is the last thing you want to happen to your season.
Our dentist’s mouth guards are different from store-bought mouth guards because they are custom-fit to the shape of your teeth and gums. Our mouthguards are more comfortable to wear, allowing you to drink and breathe freely so you can concentrate on the game.
