Things don’t always go to plan and when accidents happen that damage your teeth, jaw and gums, you may need to seek emergency dental care. If you’re based in Marsfield, Macquarie Park or other local suburbs in Sydney, you can count on Marsfield Dental Care to provide fast solutions to urgent problems. We’re centrally located and open Saturdays for your convenience, and can provide after-hours and same-day appointments for those little emergencies.

We know how distressing a dental emergency can be, and we aim to book priority appointments for the people that need it most, so we can relieve your pain quickly and look after your long-term oral health.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

It’s natural to be unsure about whether or not you require urgent dental care. We recommend that you call us immediately whenever you experience any of the following, so we can advise you on your optimal course of action:

  • Severe toothache
  • Excessive bleeding of the gums
  • Abscesses
  • Gums that appear abnormal
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Wobbly teeth caused by trauma or gum disease
  • Teeth that have been knocked out
  • Broken braces

What to do at home

There are some precautions you can take at home to minimise pain and reduce the potential for long-term damage. Of course, you shouldn’t undertake anything that causes more pain, and at-home solutions are no alternative to visiting your local Macquarie Park dentist in an emergency.

For oral pain in wisdom teeth, other teeth, gums or elsewhere in the mouth, try rinsing with warm salty water. If you’re experiencing oral swelling, use a cold ice pack on the outside of the cheek. Never apply heat to the area as this can cause a burning sensation.

If you have a large wound caused by gum disease, trauma or infection, press firmly on the wound for 5-10 minutes using a cotton cloth, towel or gauze. Avoid using tissue to wipe blood away as this can stick to the wound.

Brace wearers that are experiencing irritation from broken braces can try to bend the wire so it sits in a more comfortable position, but don’t attempt to cut any pieces of wire.
