Common Dental Emergencies in Noosa
When To See Your Dentist
Accidents and emergencies happen day and night. Some may need urgent care, whereas others can be treated during a regular dental appointment. It is important to know what is classified as an emergency that requires immediate care. Simply put, a dental emergency is any problem that requires urgent treatment, either to save a tooth, stop ongoing bleeding or reduce and treat severe pain.
Most injuries and trauma to the mouth should be treated by a dentist as soon as possible. Getting an emergency dental appointment within 30 minutes can make the difference between saving or losing a tooth!
A Painful Tooth
An infection or abscess that is left untreated, can cause severe pain which disrupts tooth function. Everything from eating to talking and sleeping can be difficult.
This infection often results from decay, a deep filling, or a crack. Once a nerve has died, and an abscess has formed, the infection needs to be removed by either root canal treatment, or removal of the tooth.
A Broken Tooth
Broken teeth or fillings are important to treat early. Even if the tooth isn’t causing pain, a broken tooth can lead to infection if left for a prolonged period.
If a piece of tooth has broken away from a tooth filling, removing the old filling and replacing it is the best solution. This method protects the tooth from further damage and creates a strong, stable filling.
A Sensitive Tooth
There are many reasons for a sensitive tooth. Often they can be managed easily, but if left untreated for too long can prove to be detrimental to your overall oral health.
If you have sensitive teeth, it's important to see your dentist. Causes for sensitivity can be cracks, exposed dentine, decay, or leaking fillings. Early treatment will prevent expensive and painful consequences later on.
An Impacted Wisdom Tooth
Wisdom teeth can become painful as they are erupting. As such, it is important for your dentist to have a look at the area to help prevent pain and infection.
Our emergency dentists can help you determine if you need emergency removal or whether it is just a case of keeping the area cleaned carefully and watching the tooth erupt.

During dental emergencies, it is important that you know what to do until you can get to your appointment.
- If your mouth is bleeding, use sterile gauze or a clean cloth and apply mild pressure to the wound.
- If the wound is bleeding heavily or you suspect you have a broken jaw, it is imperative you seem emergency medical care.
