Frequently Asked Questions
At Coastal Dental, we prioritise dental emergencies. We aim to see patients as soon as possible, typically the same day, depending on the severity and nature of the emergency. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, it’s crucial to call us immediately so we can advise you and schedule a prompt appointment.
If you have a dental emergency outside of our regular hours, please still call our office number. We provide guidance for after-hours emergencies, including instructions on immediate steps to take and how to seek urgent care. In extreme situations, especially if accompanied by severe pain or swelling that impacts breathing or swallowing, it might be best to visit a hospital emergency room.
Coverage for emergency dental treatments varies depending on your specific insurance plan. We recommend reaching out to your insurance provider for detailed information. However, our team at Coastal Dental will work with you to provide any necessary documentation and to help you understand your insurance benefits.
While our primary goal is always to save a natural tooth, there are situations where the best course of action is extraction, especially if the tooth is beyond repair. In such cases, we’ll discuss replacement options with you, such as implants, bridges, or dentures, to ensure your smile remains complete and functional.
We understand that dental emergencies can be stressful, and we’re dedicated to providing a calm and supportive environment. Our staff is trained to handle emergencies with the utmost care and empathy. Additionally, we offer sedation options for those who are particularly anxious, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. Your well-being and peace of mind are our top priorities.
We are here to answer any further questions you might have about our Emergency Dental Services or any other offerings. Coastal Dental is committed to serving the Gosford and Central Coast communities with expertise and compassion, ensuring your dental health is in the best hands.
