Dental Emergency Leichhardt

Dental emergencies like trauma to the teeth or gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored.

Ignoring dental emergencies can increase the risk of greater damage as well as the need for more extensive treatment.

Is it a Dental Emergency?

Some dental emergencies require immediate response, while others can wait to be treated.

It is important to know what to do especially if the problem happens in the middle of the night or over the weekend when most dental clinics are closed.
