  • Extreme and uncontrollable toothache which doesn’t respond to over the counter painkillers
  • Uncontrolled bleeding in your mouth
  • A chipped tooth which is causing extreme pain or there is blood coming from inside the tooth (small amount of blood from around the tooth/gum margin is not a dental emergency)
  • Dental swelling of your gum, face, cheek or neck which is spreading.
  • A recent dental extraction which continues to bleed and can’t be stopped by biting down soft padding.
  • An avulsed (knocked out) tooth

What is NOT considered an emergency?


  • Minor tooth ache which is only causing mild discomfort
  • A small amount of bleeding after knocking your tooth which stops rapidly and has no extreme pain associated.
  • Tooth sensitivity.
  • A chipped tooth without any extreme pain or blood from the tooth itself.
  • A broken restoration such as crown, bridge or veneer.
