What if I have a dental emergency?
A dental emergency can be a traumatic experience, especially if pain is involved. We treat dental emergencies as quickly as possible, often arranging a same-day appointment.
The purpose of an emergency dental exam is to determine the cause of pain or the problem and to diagnose the condition. When you contact our Coffs Harbour dental surgery with a toothache or other oral health issue, our team will ask a few important questions to prepare for your arrival.
In most cases, we will start by taking an x-ray of the affected tooth or area to give Dr Ward valuable information. Once he determines the problem, he will address the pain and stabilise your condition.
Common dental emergencies:
- A broken tooth
- A knocked-out tooth
- A damaged or lost restoration
- Swelling or pain
If you have a toothache or dental emergency, we encourage you to contact our surgery right away. Dental pain may worsen with time and put your oral health at risk.
Are You a New Patient?
We always welcome new patients and will treat you like family. We prioritise dental emergencies and will help you get relief and a plan to restore your oral health and smile.
