Dental Emergencies


Dental emergencies can occur at any time and by a variety of reasons, such as a cracked tooth when you have bitten down hard on something, tooth decay, gum infections, dental trauma such as a blow to the tooth.

Here at CoastWide Smiles Dentalcare, we offer same day emergency appointments to relieve your pain. These are appointment times we have specifically reserved, so that we can see any dental emergency patient. We just ask that you call us first thing in the morning to schedule your appointment.

There is no extra charge associated with the emergency appointment during our normal opening hours.

Emergency appointments are available Monday to Saturday

If you have lost a dental crown, in many cases this can be recemented back into place and as advised by the dentist. If you are able to recover a lost crown then bring this with you to your appointment.

Knocked out Tooth!

If a tooth has been knocked out, it could still be saved, providing you act quickly (within 30 minutes approximately) before this cannot be reinserted. You must:

  • Immediately look for the tooth
  • Pick it up by the crown of the tooth – Never the root!
  • Put the tooth into the cheek of the person it belongs to for safekeeping, or into a container of milk.
  • Immediately contact your nearest dentist or hospital
