Background and legislation

Emergency oral health care services treat urgent oral health problems that cannot be postponed until the next working day. These include oral, jaw and dental injuries requiring urgent treatment, sudden swelling, and the inability to close one’s mouth. Patients are also advised to seek emergency care if they experience severe bleeding after oral or dental surgery.

However, any ordinary toothaches or pain caused by a chipped tooth that can be managed with painkillers are treated during the day.
