Often dental fees for emergency treatments after-hours are higher and may include an ‘after-hours’ call out fee, however, Health Partners benefits may apply, where the treatment is deemed an emergency, out of Health Partners operating hours and with available benefits and limits.

If you experience any significant facial swelling, uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth or dental or facial trauma it’s important that this is assessed in a hospital setting.

What’s classed as a dental emergency?

If you’re not sure whether or not you’re experiencing a dental emergency, ask yourself these quick questions:

  • Are you bleeding from the mouth and will it not stop?
  • Have you been hit in the face or mouth and do you have any loose, chipped or cracked teeth?
  • Do you have any swelling in the mouth or lower face?
  • Do you have any bulges or swollen gums?
  • Are you in severe pain?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then you have a dental emergency and need a dental assessment as soon as possible to help prevent permanent damage.
