What should I do if I have a toothache?
Make an appointment to see the dentist as soon as possible.
Before your appointment try and alleviate any pain or discomfort: thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water or use dental floss to remove any lodged food. If your mouth is swollen, apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek.
I lost a filling. what should I do?
Call us to schedule an appointment with your dentist. It is important to get the filling replaced before your tooth gets more damaged or you begin to have tooth pain. You can use an over-the-counter dental cement temporarily. However, it is best to check with the dentist before you insert anything into the tooth.
I chipped and broke a tootH, should I come in?
See your dentist as soon as possible.
Rinse your mouth using warm water; rinse any broken pieces and save them. If there’s bleeding, apply a piece of gauze to the area until the bleeding stops. Apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth, cheek, or lip near the broken/chipped tooth to keep any swelling down and relieve pain.
What should I do if I lose a crown?
If the crown falls off, make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible. Bring the crown with you to your appointment.
My tooth was knocked out. should I see my dentist?
Make an appointment with us as quickly as possible.
It may be possible to reinsert the tooth.
If possible, retrieve the tooth. Hold it by the crown (the part that is usually exposed in the mouth), and rinse off the tooth root with water if it’s dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. Never force the tooth into the socket. If it’s not possible to reinsert the tooth in the socket keep the tooth moist by putting it back in your mouth between the cheek and the gum. If this is not possible, wrap the tooth in a clean cloth and immerse it in milk.
What happens if i ignore a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies and/or and injury to the teeth or gums should not be ignored. Ignoring a dental problem can increase the risk of permanent damage. Often a prompt visit will help you avoid the need for more extensive and expensive treatment down the road.
What do you do at my emergency appointment?
One of our dentist will examine your teeth, take x-rays of your teeth and jaw (if required) and address the cause of your concern. Before any procedure is undertaken we will always discuss all options and costs with you.
Our primary goal at this appointment is to alleviate any pain and discomfort. We will always endeavor to provide you with excellent dental care so as to avoid any future emergency appointments from disrupting you and your life.
We don’t believe in charging more for weekends, public holidays, or last-minute bookings either. We are always happy to see you!
