Emergency Dentist



What to expect


Dental emergencies may occur at any time, causing severe pain and inconvenience to you. 


It is not unusual for dental emergencies to happen to patients who do not see the value in going for regular preventive dental check ups.


If you have a dental emergency and you are in severe acute pain, our top priority is to relieve your discomfort immediately.

The Elite Dental Group guarantee


We guarantee same day appointments for anyone experiencing a dental emergency.


Our bookings for emergency patients are by appointment only, so please contact us via our dedicated help lines before heading in. 


Once we have helped you with immediate pain relief, we will then discuss with you all available treatment options for your dental problem.


More definitive treatment will only be conducted during future visit(s) to restore dental form, function and aesthetics.

Examples of dental emergencies


Dental emergencies can include:


  • Severe Toothaches
  • Broken, cracked or dislodged teeth due to an injury or an accident
  • Swelling or infected abscess in the gums or face
  • Dislodged fillings, crowns or orthodontic brackets
  • Severe bleeding in the mouth or gums
  • Broken dentures

Important note for avulsed teeth


If an adult tooth has been avulsed or knocked out of the mouth completely, retrieve the tooth by holding only the crown (the white portion) and store it in a container filled with fresh full cream milk as soon as possible. Bring the tooth along to your appointment.


DO NOT rinse the tooth or attempt to clean/wipe it.


DO NOT handle the root (covered in red tissue/debris)


You may also be able to replace the tooth back into the socket before coming to the practice.


Time is of the essence. Successful re-implantation of avulsed teeth needs to be done within 20 minutes.

After hours dental emergencies


Our practice can cater for dental emergencies 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.


If you have a severe dental emergency when our practice is closed, our rostered duty dentist can open up the practice to help at odd hours of the night or even during Sundays.

Emergency Dentistry FAQs

Is toothache pain considered a dental emergency?

If you are experiencing persistent and sharp toothache pain that is causing you discomfort or pain, you might require emergency dental services.


This is usually an indication of an infected tooth or an advanced cavity. 


Not seeking dental help might only might it worse. 

What are my options for toothache pain relief?

If you are experiencing pain and discomfort from a toothache, painkillers might work.


However, if the pain persists for a few days, call us immediately at +65 6333 4456. You might require a tooth extraction.

Can you put me to sleep for my dental anxiety?

Yes we can put you to sleep for your dental anxiety.


If you feel that it is necessary, nitrous oxide sedation can be used for sedation. It is common to feel anxiety when visiting the dentist.

Why are the costs of emergency dentistry higher?

The costs of emergency dental are usually higher than seeing a dentist on a regular basis because of a few reasons:


  • The type and number of treatments that you would require 
  • Whether it is out of operating hours or during operating hours
  • Prioritised visit 


To avoid unnecessary emergency dental costs, it is advisable to head in to your dentist at least once or twice a year for your regular dental maintenance. 

Can I use insurance to pay for my emergency dental?

Should you have dental insurance coverage that has accident coverage for your teeth, you should be able to use insurance to pay for emergency dental.
