Emergency Dental Service

We are open Monday – Thursday 9.00am to 7.00pm, and Friday – Saturday 9.00am to 5.00pm.

Types of Emergency Dental Service

At Smile Place Dental we treat every type of dental emergency. Some common emergencies are:

  • Knocked-out tooth: After a tooth has been completely knocked-out of place, there’s a very good chance the tooth can be saved, especially if proper steps are taken. If one of your teeth has fallen out of place, be sure to follow these steps:
    1. Avoid picking up a tooth by the root. Always pick it up by the crown.
    2. Very carefully, rinse the tooth off. You want to clean off any dirt, but you don’t want to scrub away any of the tissue.
    3. If possible, place the tooth back into its socket and bite down lightly.
    4. If you can’t put the tooth back into the socket, place the tooth in a small container or in a glass of milk.
    5. Call Smile Place Dental immediately. Time is of the essence and every minute matters.
  • Chipped tooth: This usually isn’t as serious as the other events of this list, but sometimes a chipped tooth can cause excruciating pain. If this is the case, call our clinic as soon as possible.
  • Lost filling or crown: Crowns or fillings come loose for a variety of reasons, but most commonly, it happens while a person is eating. The results can be incredibly painful because the affected tooth is usually extremely sensitive.
  • Facial pain and tissue injury: Puncture wounds, tears, and lacerations inside the mouth need to be treated right away.
