When is it a dental emergency?

Sometimes, it is hard to know if you should seek dental treatment. Tooth pain or sensitivity are often sure indicators of a dental emergency. However, in some cases, it may not be as clear.  

Some common dental emergencies in Melbourne that we handle at 321 Family Dental are:

  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Dental infections
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Lost or broken crowns or fillings

If you're wondering if your situation requires immediate attention, we always encourage our patients to contact our dental office first. Our staff will help assess your situation over the phone and determine if you should come in right away or schedule a future appointment. We can also provide guidance for measures you can take at home to remain comfortable until we can see you.

If you're in pain, don't wait to have your teeth checked thinking that it might go away on its own. Tooth pain is often indicating an infection, which will not relieve itself without treatment. The quicker we can treat your tooth, the faster you will get relief and be back on the path to wellness again.

We are now open and seeing patients for all types of dental treatment including cleanings. I would say "business as usual," but we have made some changes that you may notice when you come in for your appointment. Although we have always been very aggressive with our infection control protocol, COVID-19 has made us re-think some of our basic systems such as our waiting room and check-in process. Check out our dedicated COVID-19 page to see all of the changes that we have been making to keep our patients and staff safe.
