Urgent dental problems during COVID-19 Alert Level 1
Please contact your normal dentist or a dentist that provides emergency treatment.
If you or a family member has a very painful toothache or an injury to your teeth or gums, get help as soon as possible.
For serious problems that occur after hours or on weekends, you may need to contact an after-hours dentist, see below.
Some hospitals can deal with dental emergencies, but this should be your last option. You will likely have to follow up with a dentist later.
The Ministry of Health also has some tips on how to get emergency dental care.
The following dentists in Christchurch are open late night, and some weekends and public holidays for emergency dental appointments.
