for Gosford Hospital Emergency

Pain relief may be administered or prescribed. Jaw fractures can be managed by the hospital with referral of any dental emergencies to an oral surgeon or GP the following day.

Fractured teeth

Retain any parts of the tooth and keep moist by storing in saline (or milk as the second best option), NOT WATER, and contact us asap. TIME IS CRITICAL.

DENTAL TRAUMA: what can I do?

Knocked out teeth

If possible, replant straightaway (within 30 mins for best chance of survival) or after gently rinsing with saline. Try to avoid touching the root (yellow part). If it can’t be replanted, place it in a container preferably with saline (or milk as second best option) so the tooth doesn’t dry out and contact us asap.
