Dental emergencies can come in different forms, however they usually involve pain and discomfort and require an immediate treatment. If you are not sure, whether your case is an emergency, please contact us and let us know your symptoms. Some of the dental emergencies may include:
Swelling that is very painful
Bleeding that won't stop
A toothache that hurts unbearably
A permanent tooth that becomes loose or that is completely knocked out
An injury to the jaw
Chipped or fractured tooth
Here are some of the steps an emergency dental appointment will cover:
A thorough examination of the injured area will be undertaken. This may include dental x-rays to determine the extent of the damage.
Depending on the severity of the pain, the area will be numbed with local anaesthetic.
The injured area will be sterilised to reduce the risk of infection.
The damaged teeth will be restored temporarily or permanently, depending on the case.
In severe cases the affected tooth may require extraction and implant treatment will be discussed.
