A dental emergency is an acute condition that usually requires immediate attention. It is often caused by an injury to the mouth, a sudden onset of tooth pain or swelling in the gums. Here are some signs and symptoms of dental emergencies.

  • Extensive bleeding from a tooth socket, inside the mouth or onto clothing
  • Severe jaw pain
  • A large cavity that’s filling with tissue fluid or pus (drainage) and getting larger – This requires immediate treatment because it can’t be sealed by a dentist or filled with a temporary filling material.
  • Noises or pain while chewing, including earaches caused by tooth or jaw problems
  • Severe toothache
  • Toothache that awakens you in the middle of the night
  • Any time bleeding occurs from a gum problem, also known as gingivitis.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, we highly recommend giving our Burwood dental clinic a call.

Pain management is generally needed for toothaches at home, so here are some ways to manage your pain so you can sleep well.

  • Use over-the-counter pain medication. 

You can decrease tooth pain from a toothache by using over-the-counter or prescription medications and oral numbing pastes or gels (with or without acetaminophen). Still, they shouldn’t be used on infants or children under two years of age.

  • Keep your head elevated. 

By propping your head above your body, you can keep the blood from flowing to your head so you don’t suffer from a toothache. If blood pools in your head, it can intensify your pain and may keep you awake.

  • Avoid eating acidic, cold, or hard foods right before bed. 

Avoid foods that trigger pain, as they may aggravate your teeth and any cavities that might already be present.

  • Rinse your teeth with mouthwash. 

An alcohol-based mouthwash will both disinfect your teeth and numb them.

  • Use an ice pack before bed. 

If you rest the painful side of your face on an ice pack wrapped in a cloth, the pain will usually go away.

Being forced to face an unexpected dental emergency is never an ideal circumstance, especially when paying the bill.

Therefore, it is useful to know the general price range for an unexpected dental incident so you can budget accordingly.

There are a number of variables that can affect the cost of emergency dental procedures, including the severity of your particular case, the number of teeth exposed, the location in which you live, and your dental insurance.

We will provide a brief description of the most common types of emergency dental issues and the general cost of these procedures in an emergency.

A root canal without a crown usually costs between $2,200 and $3,400 in Australia, according to the 2017 national dental fee survey.

Non-surgical gum erupted extractions usually cost $75-300, while extractions performed under anesthesia will generally run between $200-600.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please speak to our team as soon as possible.


Most dentist are closed during night so if the pain is unbearable. Please visit the Victoria Emergency Dental Care page  for information on what steps you need to take.
