Emergency Dental Care

Dental emergencies typically happen without any warning, at the worst possible times. As a patient-oriented, advanced practice, we do our best to take on emergency cases in a timely manner.


Our highly skilled dentists are available to assist you in the case of emergency through our dedicated WhatsApp line.

Ignoring a major dental problem can lead to serious permanent damage, so we recommend scheduling an appointment as quickly as possible in the event of an emergency.

At Redefine Dental, we offer emergency care and assistance for the times you need it most. If you experience any of the following conditions, please don't hesitate to contact us:

  • Painful, swollen gums: Use an antiseptic mouthwash or rinse with warm salt water until you can see us.
  • Toothache: Rinse with warm water regularly and do not apply painkillers, like aspirin, directly to the area. It is vital to have the area examined as soon as possible.
  • Cracked/chipped teeth: Rinse your mouth with warm water. Apply a cold compress to alleviate any swelling.
  • Lost teeth: Keep the tooth moist until you see your dentist - try to soak it in milk.

During a dental emergency, we aim to assist you quickly and effectively in a safe, comfortable environment. We understand that dental phobia is a real concern for many, especially during an emergency. To ensure your comfort during your procedure, we offer noise-cancelling earphones and ambient lighting, as well as suitable sedation.

We also use more advanced techniques that incorporate Slow Dentistry to minimise the risk of infection and ensure your overall health and wellbeing.
