If you require emergency dental care, please contact our dental practice as soon as possible. We will offer immediate advice over the phone and can schedule a convenient appointment. We make every effort to see patients in discomfort or pain as quickly as possible, preferably on the same day. During this initial visit, our dentist will diagnose the problem, providing immediate treatment to relieve pain or discomfort.
When Should I Seek Immediate Dental Care?
A dental problem that is causing a high fever, facial swelling or which is making you feel very unwell requires urgent attention. Please come and see us straightaway or go to your nearest emergency room. A severe dental infection can affect your general health and needs emergency treatment.
What to Do If You Knock Out a Tooth?
If you knock out a tooth, there is a chance it can be reinserted within the first half an hour to an hour after the accident. Carefully pick up the tooth by its crown and rinse off any visible dirt. Store it in a small container with a little saliva or milk, or try to reinsert the tooth, making sure it faces the right way. Come and see us immediately. If a child knocks out a primary tooth, please don’t try to reinsert it as this could damage the adult tooth underneath.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Contact us for more information. Rebates may vary depending on your individual health fund.
