Have you ever needed emergency medical assistance? Many think of ambulances and hospitals, but our teeth can end up in situations requiring immediate dental treatment for various reasons. And since emergencies seem to happen at the most inconvenient times, availability couldn’t be more crucial! For that reason, we provide same-day emergency appointments for our patients in Tamworth and surrounding areas!

What Is a Dental Emergency?

Throughout our everyday lives, our teeth can go through quite a bit! Not everything that happens to our teeth constitutes a dental emergency, but some common reasons patients may seek emergency dental treatment include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Teeth suddenly chipped or knocked out (generally as a result of trauma)
  • Severe jaw pain
  • Abscesses
  • Bleeding

This list does not cover all dental emergencies; please reach out for more information if you have any doubts or require assistance.

Same-Day Emergency Appointments in Tamworth, NSW

We understand how dire an unbearable toothache can feel. Getting the right treatments promptly can alleviate pain and bring our patients’ teeth back to an improved condition.We strive to provide as much availability as we can. For this reason, our patients can schedule a same-day emergency dental appointment if arranged either online or by phone before 1 PM.

Benefits of Seeking Assistance

Sometimes people wait until the last minute to deal with conditions that later turn into dental emergencies. However, with proactive treatment and regular visits to the dentist, many oral health issues related to gum disease, tooth decay, and other conditions might not require emergency treatment further down the line.

Avoiding Dental Emergencies

We cannot control all of the factors leading to an emergency dental situation. Still, regular upkeep of our oral health and routine visits to a dentist can help keep you in the know and on top of any avoidable conditions.
