How to know if it’s an emergency

Emergency dentist in the Hutt

  • Are you in severe pain? Extreme tooth ache and bleeding are signs of an emergency.
  • Have you lost a tooth? Immediate treatment can potentially save a tooth.
  • Are you an adult with a loose tooth? A loose tooth, even without pain, is a serious problem.
  • Do you have an infection? An abscess or serious infection in your mouth can be potentially life-threatening, and treatment should not wait. You may notice swelling or knots on your gums or swelling around the face.
  • Are you bleeding from the mouth? Consider this as an emergency.

In general, any dental problem that needs immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, save a tooth or stabilise an infection is considered an emergency.

In such case give us a call at the Hutt Dental Hub and we will see you immediately. If your call is outside opening hours you should not hesitate to contact the hospital ER.
