Do You Require Emergency Dental Treatment?

In some cases, it is understandable that a patient may be unsure about whether their concern requires emergency treatment or not. Generally, a dental emergency could include:

  • Severe toothaches, pain, and discomfort
  • A broken or chipped tooth
  • A tooth that has been knocked out of the gum
  • Loose, faulty, or broken dentures
  • Uncontrollable bleeding
  • Painful swelling
  • Injury to the jaw

If you’re suffering from any of the dental concerns listed above, it is vital that you contact our practice to discuss emergency treatment. If any of these oral health complications are left untreated, they can turn into more serious complications.

How to Prevent Emergency Dental Concerns

Thankfully, there are many preventative steps you can put in place to avoid dental emergencies. These include:

  • Wearing a dentist-made, custom-fitted mouthguard when playing sport
  • Avoiding using teeth to open items such as packaging
  • Never chewing hard food (such as lollies or ice cubes)
  • Avoiding placing sharp or harmful items in your mouth
