What Is a Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency refers to a sudden and unforeseen dental issue that requires immediate attention to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, or address a critical oral health concern.
These emergencies can encompass a range of situations, such as severe toothaches, broken or knocked-out teeth, oral infections, abscesses, bleeding, and injuries to the mouth or jaw.
How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies
Navigating through unexpected dental emergencies requires quick and informed actions. Here, we will provide concise guidance on how to effectively manage common dental emergencies.
If you are experiencing severe pain, take over-the-counter pain relievers such as Ibuprofen or Panadol as directed on the packaging to manage the pain.
If a tooth has been completely knocked out, time is of the essence. Try to find the tooth and pick it up by the crown (the white part), not the root. If the root is dirty, gently rinse it with milk or water. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue. If possible, place the tooth back in the socket and hold it in place with a clean piece of gauze or a handkerchief. If that isn’t possible, put the tooth in a cup of milk or water, check out Root Canal Treatments for more.
If you have a broken piece or chipped tooth, try to find the pieces and bring them with you to the dentist. In the meantime, you can take Ibuprofen for the pain and rinse your mouth with warm saltwater.
A dental abscess is a pus-filled pocket that forms around the tooth. Infection usually causes it. If you have an abscess, you’ll need to see a dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can take Ibuprofen for the pain and rinse your mouth with warm saltwater.
Wisdom teeth are the third molars, and they usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. They can cause dental problems if they don’t come incorrectly or if there isn’t enough emergency room in the mouth for them. If you’re having problems with your wisdom teeth, you should see a dentist.

When to Seek Medical Assistance
In the event of a dental emergency, it’s crucial to promptly seek medical help. Dental emergencies can bring about significant discomfort and might necessitate immediate treatment to prevent further damage.
Furthermore, certain dental emergencies could signal an underlying and potentially serious condition. Hence, seeking medical assistance promptly is essential to ensure accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
What our patients say
“I had the most amazing experience. I was nervous about my dental treatment but when I got here they explained it to me and I was put at ease. The work done was amazing and I won't hesitate to return to this clinic. Dr Zaheer and his team were very professional and caring.
I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.”
“I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.
Dr Linh was wonderful. She explained the whole treatment and answered all my questions. I also met Frances the receptionist. She was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I had an amazing experience and highly recommend Moorooka Dental Care.”
“The whole team are such a lovely bunch of people! Dr Tina and Casey (I think it's Casey.. correct me if I'm wrong) work so well together and had me laughing before and after my dental work. Everyone is really kind here, from owner to reception staff. I know I'm in good hands when I visit 🙂”
“I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.”
“Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.”
“This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.”
“Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks”
“Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza. Both are excellent professionals. They took the time to explain the procedures and the subsequent cares. I even got a follow up call from the practice manager, Ahmed, the next day. I highly recommend them!”
