No matter how well you strive to keep your teeth and mouth in good condition, the unforeseen can occur. For those times you need an emergency dentist. Sydney’s Dr Finkelstein Dental at Chatswood can handle all kinds of dental conditions.

This is the most common reason for a dental emergency and it can have many causes. Toothache can result from cavities, leaking or loose fillings, broken teeth, abscesses, wisdom teeth, denture difficulties and temporomandibular joint problem (TMJ).
Pain is a symptom of some underlying problems so get in touch with us fast if you experience it. Dr Finkelstein will be able to identify the cause and fix the problem fast before it develops into a serious condition.
If you suffer from a cracked or broken tooth, avoid eating and get in touch with Dr Finkelstein immediately. Any bleeding in the mouth may require immediate treatment.
Lost Tooth, Fillings or Crown
If one or more of your teeth are knocked out while playing sports or in an accident, contact Dr Finkelstein at once. Try and keep your lost tooth, preferably in pure water or milk and avoid touching the root. This increases the chances that the tooth can be re-fitted.
If a filling comes loose, contact your dentist immediately to have a temporary one fitted and schedule an appointment to replace it. For loose crowns, keep the crown safe and contact your emergency dentist, Sydney.
The most common cause of a swollen face is an infection. To relieve your discomfort and prevent the infection from spreading, get in touch with an emergency dentist. Sydney-based Dr Finkelstein can take care of you
Temporomandibular TMJ Joint Problem (TMJ).
