Receiving timely treatment for a dental emergency can mean the difference between losing and saving a tooth. At Arthur Street Dental, we offer urgent dental care for people of all ages, whether it’s a knocked-out tooth from a sporting event or broken filling. 

With COVID-19 restrictions in place, Arthur Street Dental is only open for emergency dental care at this time. If you have an oral health emergency, we encourage you to call our dental clinic right away. 

Dr Justin Ward is a highly trained and knowledgeable emergency dentist in Coffs Harbour who can help alleviate your dental pain and discomfort. Our team wants you to enjoy a healthy, functional smile so you can chew, speak, smile and socialise with ease. 

What Is a Dental Emergency?

Injuries and traumas to the mouth can lead to damaged teeth and wounded gums. Examples of dental emergencies are:

  • Swelling
  • Uncontrolled bleeding 
  • Severe pain in the mouth, teeth, gums or jaw
  • Losing or breaking a dental restoration, such as a filling or dental implant
  • Broken, cracked or damaged teeth
  • Dental abscess

The purpose of emergency dental care is to stop pain or bleeding as quickly and comfortably as possible. 

What to Expect at an Emergency Dental Visit 

Arthur Street Dental is available for emergency dentistry treatment at our convenient Coffs Harbour dental clinic. We will get you in to see the doctor as quickly as possible so he can treat your pain, alleviate your anxiety, and resolve your dental issue. 

Dr Ward treats each emergency differently, based on the nature and area of concern. For instance, our team approaches a root infection differently than a broken crown. During your visit, we will perform an oral examination and may take digital x-rays if needed. 

In some cases, a dental emergency may require a follow-up appointment to provide comprehensive care. However, we often complete urgent dental treatment in a single visit. 

When you visit our dental clinic, we discuss the concern, your individual oral health needs, and treatment expectations. Whatever you need, we are here to help you keep your smile safe and sound.

Time is of the essence when dealing with a dental emergency, and we firmly believe that it’s better to be safe than sorry. 

If you experience something amiss with your oral health, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr Ward to ensure you receive the appropriate treatment.
