Having toothache is worse than giving birth.
This is very often how patients describe dental pain. Dental emergencies can occur at any time and we will do our best to see you as soon as possible.
We understand that dental emergencies can be distressing and aim to help you be prepared ahead of time and to know what to do if an emergency happens. How you react in the minutes following a dental emergency may determine if you keep or lose your tooth.
Ongoing Dental Pain
If you are having mild or moderate pain, it is advisable to still have an appointment booked as soon as possible, since it is most likely that the pain will get worse and will really affect your quality of life.
