- Wisdom tooth pain – If you have wisdom teeth coming in, as well as breaking through the gums, they may be pressing against other teeth.
- Chipped or broken tooth – Any obvious damage to a tooth should be treated as soon as possible. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing problems in the future.
- Lost filling or crown – If you lose a filling, the nerve inside the tooth may be exposed.
- Knocked out tooth – Make an appointment to see our dentist as soon as possible, the sooner a knocked out tooth is re-implanted the more likely it is to embed itself back into the gum.
- Bleeding gums – Gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontal disease can cause toothaches or pain.

What to do before you book an appointment for dental service?
Step 1: Call and book yourself in for an urgent a appointment in Ellenbrook.
Step 2: If you are waiting to see the dentist and you are suffering from dental pain or toothache:
take some anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen to help ease the pain.
Take two paracetamol pills and wait two to three hours before repeating the dose again.
If you have injured yourself in a sporting incident or around the house, be sure to consult a doctor to assess the severity of the injuries.
Apply cold compress from the cheek to help alleviate the pain. Do not apply ice directly to your aching tooth, as toothaches frequently cause increased sensitivity to temperature.

When should you go to the dentist?
Monitor your toothache over the next 24 hours. You may just have an irritation if it subsides. Make an appointment with Coolamon if:
- the pain is severe
- your toothache lasts longer than two days
