Dental emergencies can cover a whole number of scenarios from toothaches or dental trauma (knocked-out or fractured teeth), to facial swelling or lost fillings. If you experience a dental emergency, it is important that you contact our team of Gympie dentists as soon as possible. 


First things first, contact us immediately!

We'll try to schedule you for an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible. Depending on the types of emergency you're experiencing, there are some quick actions you can take. 

What to do if you lose a tooth?

It's probably one of the most common dental injuries but if you do happen to lose a tooth in an accident it's important to act quickly.

  • Rinse the tooth with milk to wash off any dirt and to increase its survival time, either immerse the tooth in milk or place it back in your mouth. 

  • If your child has lost a baby tooth, do not place it back in the socket. Doing so can damage the new permanent tooth underneath.

What to do if you fracture, chip or break a tooth?

  • Reposition the tooth using very light finger pressure.

  • Hold in place with a moist tissue or gauze.

  • Try to find any broken or chipped away pieces and rinse them with milk to remove any dirt.

  • If you cannot find the piece of tooth, don't stress, just remember to contact us immediately.

  • Depending on how damaged the tooth is our emergency dentists may be able to repair it.

Other Types of Dental Emergencies

  • Toothaches - If you are suffering from a toothache, take some painkillers such as Panadeine or nurofen (if not contraindicated for you) and seek health advise as soon as possible. Severe dental pain is often associated with an abscessed tooth which may need antibiotics as well. 

  • Facial Swelling - If you are experiencing swelling around your jaw-line or cheeks, you should seek medical advice immediately. Either contact your local dentist or visit the emergency department to get to the cause of the swelling as soon as possible.

  • Lost Filling - A lost filling can leave sharp edges and lead to cuts on the tongue and cheeks if left untreated. If there is no pain, use bluetac or wax to smooth the edge over until you can visit your local dentist. If you are experiencing pain, contact your local dentist immediately.

  • Soft Tissue Injuries - This includes cuts, tears, and punctures to the tongue, cheeks or lips. Try to clean the wound straight away and visit your local dentist or emergency department as soon as possible. If bleeding persists, place pressure on the wound using gauze.
