Dental emergencies can be very painful or stressful and can benefit from treatment by a dentist. 

Your dentist at Lyneham Dental Care is available to treat dental emergencies which includes:

  • severe toothache, swelling or abscess
  • dislodged filling
  • loose, damaged or knocked out teeth
  • severe tooth sensitivity
  • broken crown or veneer
  • excessive bleeding or sore gums


In order to provide you the best care, your dentist will examine your symptoms, teeth and may take digital radiographs of your teeth. Radiographic examinations will determine if there are any issues between your teeth and under the gums to check the teeth roots and your bone. It is a crucial part in the diagnosis and management of many dental conditions. If you have suffered a dental emergency, contact us as soon as possible to discuss your concerns.


At Lyneham Dental Care, your safety is our first priority.

We are currently following the Australian Dental Association and the ACT Government Guidelines and treating emergencies only at least until the 1st of May. We will continue to assess and address the COVID-19 situation as it evolves.

During April, one of our dedicated and highly experienced dentists, Dr Stuart Long, is available for you by appointment on Mondays and Wednesdays 9am - 4pm (excluding public holidays).

If you have an emergency, please contact us on 62491785. If you reach the answering machine, please leave a message with your contact details and your dental concerns.
