When most people think of a dental emergency, they think of a tooth that has been knocked out. However, there are many other situations that can qualify as a dental emergency. For example, a broken tooth or a loose filling can both be painful and cause serious damage if left untreated.
If you are experiencing any kind of dental pain, it is important to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible. Waiting too long can result in the need for more extensive treatment, such as a root canal.
Emergency dental care can be difficult to find, but our emergency dental Melbourne clinic is available to help. If you are unsure whether or not your situation qualifies as a dental emergency, it is always best to err on the side of caution and consult with an emergency dentist.
Emergency dental and hospital care are two very different things. emergency dental is for people who have an urgent need for dental care, such as a severe toothache or infection.
Dental emergency centres are staffed with dentists and dental hygienists who can provide immediate care.
Hospital emergency rooms, on the other hand, are for people who have life-threatening conditions, such as a heart attack or stroke. If you have a dental emergency, you should go to an emergency dental centre rather than the hospital emergency room.
At Studio Smiles, we offer emergency dental care and have on-site HICAPS for all other private health insurance with dental extras.
Our team of experienced and qualified dentists are available to provide you with the treatment you need, when you need it.
We understand that dental emergencies can be unexpected and often occur at the most inconvenient times. That’s why we offer affordable, convenient and reliable emergency dental care.
If you’re in need of an emergency dentist, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to help you get the treatment you need.

Emergency dentists in Melbourne can be difficult to find. However, there are a few steps you can take to ensure you get the treatment you need. First, try contacting your regular dentist.
Many dentists have after-hours numbers that you can call in case of an emergency. If your dentist does not have an after-hours number, they may be able to refer you to another local dentist who does. You can also search online for emergency dental clinics in your area. Be sure to read reviews before choosing a clinic, as not all clinics are created equal. Finally, if you cannot find an emergency dentist in Melbourne, consider going to the nearest hospital emergency room. The staff there may be able to provide you with the care you need or refer you to a local dentist who can help.
Studio Smiles is prepared to help you with your dental needs whether it is an emergency or not. We understand that sometimes accidents happen and you need someone you can trust to help you through it. That’s why we offer same-day appointments and priority care for dental emergencies.

Emergency dental appointments generally cost more than regular check-ups. This is because emergency appointments are typically unscheduled and require more time and attention from the dentist. The average cost of an emergency dental appointment is $200-$300, but the exact price will depend on the complexity of the procedure.
For example, a tooth extraction will usually cost more than a filling. Insurance may cover some or all of the cost of an emergency dental appointment, but it is important to check with your insurer beforehand. There are also a number of financial assistance programs available for those who cannot afford the full cost of treatment.
A dentist can provide care for a wide range of dental emergencies, from a chipped tooth to a severe infection. In the case of a minor emergency, such as a toothache or a small chip, the dentist may simply clean the affected area and provide some pain relief.
For more serious problems, such as a tooth that has been knocked out or an abscessed tooth, the dentist may need to perform more extensive treatment. This could involve reattaching the tooth or performing root canal surgery. In any case, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible after an injury to ensure that the problem does not get worse.
Dental emergencies can be extremely painful, and they often happen when we least expect it. The most common dental emergency is a chipped or broken tooth. This can occur from biting down on hard food, playing sports, or even just accidentally hitting your mouth. If you have a chipped or broken tooth, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible. If the break is severe, the tooth may need to be extracted. In other cases, the dentist may be able to repair the damage with bonding or a crown.
Other common dental emergencies include abscesses, toothaches, and lost fillings. An abscess is a pocket of pus that forms around the root of a tooth. It can be extremely painful and may require antibiotics or even surgery to treat. A toothache is usually caused by decay or inflammation and can range from mild to severe. Lost fillings are another common problem, especially if the filling was large or in a visible location. If you have a dental emergency, it’s important to seek professional treatment as soon as possible to minimise the damage.

Dr. Sabrina Escuza
Dr. Sabrina Escuza takes great pride in providing a calm environment where patients feel safe to express their needs, and comfortable to ask questions. Empowering you to take control of your oral health journey is her number one priority. She will thoroughly explain your conditions, how they came to be, and what treatment options are available to meet your health or aesthetic goals. Each patient is unique, and she will strategically tie all the aspects of dentistry into an individual journey that will work best for you. It doesn’t matter if it’s a check up, or a complete change that you’re seeking – she will look after you.
Florida, USA is where home is for Dr. Sabrina. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Melbourne, where she graduated with honours and an achievement award from the prestigious Delta Sigma Delta dental fraternity. Eight years of uni has made her addicted to education – she is fluent in Spanish, has studied philosophy and French, and now spends her free time learning about the most modern dental treatment modalities through continued professional development courses.
Dr. Sabrina finds great joy in the intersections of dentistry – healthcare and artistry, function/aesthetics and mental health, communication and comfort. She is meticulous with the design of a smile, considering everything from the physics of your bite to the color of the porcelain. One of her favorite areas is where surgery meets prosthetics – sometimes losing a very broken down tooth means creating a healthy space for a beautiful replacement that will get you eating without pain and smiling without shame.
Apart from dentistry, Sabrina (not so) secretly thinks she is a master chef, and can be found trying to feed her friends the excessive amount of food she cooks. She loves music, a good picnic in the sun, and her dog, Nile.
