    Toothaches can occur for many reasons so it's important to get checked out. While you’re waiting for your appointment, try these home remedies to help alleviate pain:

    • Make a salt rinse by combining 2 teaspoons of salt with warm water. Dissolve and swish around the mouth for one minute, then spit out and repeat as needed
    • Apply a cold compress to the area for up to 15 minutes
    • Take over-the-counter pain relief such as paracetamol or ibuprofen

    If you have swelling or severe pain with fever, go to the hospital immediately.

  • How to save a knocked-out tooth

    If you have a tooth that’s been damaged or knocked out, we recommend seeing a dentist as soon as possible. Acting quickly while the tooth is still “alive” can help you to save the tooth and increase our chances of reattaching it:

    • Remain calm
    • Pick up the tooth by the crown (the part you normally see) NOT by the root
    • Rinse the tooth in milk (preferable) or tap water for a couple of seconds
    • Gently and carefully place the tooth back into the socket and bite down on some gauze. If you’re unable to place the tooth back, put it in a container of milk
    • See a dentist, ideally within 30 minutes

A dental emergency can happen when you least expect it, but it doesn't have to leave you out of pocket. At Mount Lawley Dental in Perth, we offer flexible and interest-free payment plans through Zip and Openpay, so you can get the care you need, fast.

It’s important to stay calm during an emergency. If you have an injury, clean the area gently using water and try to stop any bleeding, then call an emergency dentist. An emergency dentist can offer specific advice for managing your emergency and book you an appointment for immediate care.
