What to do in a dental emergency?

Unfortunately, dental emergencies can occur at any time and on any day of the week, and we understand that acute issues often need to be treated as quickly as possible. Our team at Thorndon Dental prioritise patients with pain and will attempt to see you within 24 hours.

If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or injury, it is important you see a dentist as soon as possible. The same goes for one or more knocked out teeth. The sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better the chances that the teeth could be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.

If you are unsure whether your dental issue is an emergency and it is out of hours, please call our emergency dentist number on 04 472 8353.
