How do I know if it's a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies typically occur at inopportune moments, making it difficult to sleep or plan. Fortunately, your dentist in Avondale, Auckland treats dental emergencies fast to help you get the sleep you need and be able to make and keep plans.

At Avondale Dental Centre, we consider anything that threatens your oral health and overall wellness a dental emergency.

Dental emergencies may include:

  • Toothache or ongoing tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Broken tooth or restoration
  • Knocked-out tooth or restoration
  • Broken tooth replacement
  • Soft tissue injury

While most dental emergencies fall under the categories above, we encourage you to contact a member of our dental team if you’re unsure. We can discuss your symptoms and make a safe determination for you.

It’s important to remember that toothaches typically do not go away on their own, and oral health changes are signs that something is likely amiss. Self-treating with pain relievers will not solve the problem and may lead to infection spread, tooth loss or systemic health issue—especially if an infection is allowed to spread.
