You never can tell just when you might eat popcorn that results in a broken filling, or when a rogue ball in softball might knock out a tooth on a Saturday morning.
Somerset Dental Care has daily dedicated emergency spots available to ensure that, whether it is a chip or a crack on a Tuesday afternoon or a knock out on a Saturday, we can accommodate your needs where possible.
If you are in a position where you cannot make it to a dentist in the event of an emergency, here are some dental tips you should keep in mind:
Knocked out tooth: this particular accident really does need immediate dental care to ensure no long term damage.
Toothache: if you cannot make it to a dentist soon, painkillers are your best bet. Also avoid eating any sugary or hot/cold foods that may aggravate your tooth pain.
Sore gums: if you have ulcers or sore gums try gargling and swishing salt water. This will kill any bacteria and prevent an infection from getting worse in the meantime.
If you are uncertain whether you are experiencing an emergency, call us on 02 4648 0909 to speak to a member of the Somerset Dental Care team.
Emergency Dentistry FAQ's
A dental emergency is an incident that requires immediate dental attention. Some examples of dental emergencies include a knocked-out adult tooth, severe pain, or uncontrollable bleeding. Some incidents that are not considered dental emergencies but should be booked in for dental care are a chipped tooth with no pain or common toothaches.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please get in contact with us on 02 4648 0909 immediately. Or, contact the nearest emergency dentist near you.
If your tooth has been knocked out, preserve it until arriving at the dentist by picking it up by the crown, rinsing it off, and keeping it in a container of milk or salt water. Place gauze on your bleeding spot.
In a dental emergency, contact your regular dentist right away to book an emergency appointment. We can be reached on 02 4648 0909. If you are unable to get a hold of your dentist, go to an emergency dentist near you.
The most common dental emergency is a toothache. Toothaches can be caused by various factors, such as tooth decay, gum disease, dental abscess, trauma, or an impacted tooth. The pain can range from mild to severe and can be accompanied by swelling or sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. It is important to seek prompt dental care for a toothache as it could indicate a serious underlying problem that requires treatment. Other common dental emergencies include chipped or broken teeth, knocked-out teeth, and lost fillings or crowns.
You should deal with a dental emergency quickly to alleviate pain, prevent infection, save your tooth, and avoid further damage. Delaying treatment can lead to more serious and potentially irreversible problems.
Any severe or persistent tooth pain that interferes with your daily activities or is accompanied by swelling, bleeding, or damage to the teeth or gums could be considered a dental emergency and require prompt attention.
