What to do if you have dental pain

1. There are several types of dental emergencies. To get you the right emergency dental appointment, we need to assess you whether you have a true toothache, a dental abscess or another type of urgent dental problem.

Gather as much information as possible to relay to our team, it makes proving you the right type of urgent dental care as smooth as possible.

2. Get a list of all of your medications and details about any medical conditions you have.

3. Try your best to stay hydrated and keep your blood sugar levels up, often dental pain means you aren't eating properly and your body struggles to deal with the stress.

4. We are here to help so don't hesitate to get some advice off our team

  • Facial SWelling

  • Toothache

  • Dental Trauma

  • Lost Crown

  • Broken Denture

  • Chipped or broken front tooth

Facial Swelling


  • Your facial swelling extends above the cheekbone or below your jaw line (your throat is swelling)
  • You have a high fever, feel sick or have vomited
  • You have any difficulty breathing, your eye is swelling or your throat feels tight

Go straight to the emergency ward at the hospital to receive IV antibiotics.

We will also need to see you to remove the tooth, however controlling the spreading infection is a must. There are a lot of very important structures around, and a spreading dental infection can very rapidly become a serious medical issue, or even fatal.

Otherwise: give us a call straight away so we can arrange for you to be seen on this day. We set aside emergency appointments every day to make sure we can see you. We will assess what needs to be done and if you need antibiotics. There’s a saying in dentistry: “Never let the sun set on a swelling”.

Facial swellings often mean severe dental infection, which usually requires the tooth to be taken out. Make sure you try to eat and keep hydrated. Take two over-the-counter pain killers before your appointment so you have something in your system for when our numbing wears off.

Call us straight away on 02 6766 1766 if you have the above. Do not delay as these issues only get worse. If it is outside of working hours, you can leave a message on our answering machine or message us on Facebook. You can also contact Tamworth Base Hospital to see if there is an on-call dentist.

Our team is here to relieve your dental pain and get you smiling again!
