Emergency Treatment and Toothaches


Toothaches are very serious, and can even lead to dangerous life threatening scenarios if ignored or left for days. At tooth dental, we have emergency appointments available on the day for tooth aches. If your child has a tooth ache or has had a fall, we will see them immediately as our first priority. Please call the practice and we will get the appropriate details.

Teeth have a way of misbehaving outside of practice hours! Please contact the practice any time of the day on (07) 3366 1737 and you will be prompted to leave a message. It is important that you leave your name and contact details, our friendly staff will contact you first thing on the next business day to arrange an appointment. Alternatively you can book online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Please try not to play with the tooth with your fingers or tongue. It is best to avoid hot and cold, which may exacerbate the symptoms. Gently brush the area, or rinse with warm salty mouth rinses to keep the area clean.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
