Emergency Services in Randwick, NSW
When patients require urgent dental treatment, we provide prompt dental care – often on the same day. If you have a toothache, pain, or an unexpected change in your oral health, we encourage you to contact our Randwick dental clinic immediately, as a timely response improves overall results and gives us the best opportunity to save your tooth.
Common Dental Emergencies
Dr Andrew Dunn, along with our entire team, is well equipped to handle nearly any type of dental emergency. Some of the most common oral conditions we treat include:
- Fractured or broken teeth
- Pain and swelling
- Lost or damaged fillings, crowns, bridges or dentures
- Abscessed or infected teeth
- Painful gums
- Sports trauma
- Knocked-out teeth
If you are unsure as to whether your symptoms require emergency dentistry, contact our clinic. Our knowledgeable team will guide you and help you decide if an immediate trip to the dentist is necessary.
Emergency Dental Exam
When you arrive for your emergency exam, we will greet you with a smile and update any information necessary to provide you with proper dental care.
The purpose of an emergency exam is to identify the condition causing the emergency, treat the immediate need with palliative care, and stabilise the condition.
We will often begin by taking x-rays of the affected area to assist Dr Dunn with an accurate diagnosis. Dr Dunn will take the time to discuss your condition with you and explain all possible treatments so you can make an informed decision.
In many cases, we provide comprehensive treatment immediately. In other complex cases, we will stabilise the condition and arrange a follow-up appointment to complete treatment.
Either way, you will have answers and feel relief from pain and discomfort by the time you leave Centennial Smiles.
How to Prevent Dental Emergencies
The best way to avoid a dental emergency is with regular dental care – both at home and in the surgery:
- Diagnostic x-rays
By maintaining preventive oral care, you are giving your smile the best insurance against painful conditions. Of course, life is not always predictable. When tooth pain takes you off guard, or in the event of an emergency, we are here when you need us most.
Consequences of Dental Anxiety
If you experience dental anxiety or stress related to a visit to the surgery, we look forward to alleviating your worries.
Our caring and friendly team maintains the highest level of professional care while taking the time to talk to our patients about their concerns, conditions and goals for their smiles.
