Avenue Dental has a same day emergency dental guarantee at each of its three dental practices across the Sunshine Coast if you call before 10am.

Unfortunately, people have unplanned dental emergencies that need attention. One of the most common problems we see is a broken tooth. Often a tooth breaks at the most inconvenient time such as eating pork crackling on Christmas Day.

Usually if a tooth breaks it is not painful. Sometimes the tooth can have increased sensitivity to cold and may be sharp and irritating for your tongue or cheek. Occasionally, prior to breaking, a tooth can have some minor pain on biting. Very Occasionally a tooth can break at an unfavorable angle which means the tooth cannot be fixed and must be removed, or possibly the tooth can even split in two also resulting in a tooth that cannot be saved.
