Canberra Dental Emergencies

At our practice, we provide dental emergency services. We will make every effort to help patients in need of emergency dental care.

Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go to plan.
However careful you are with your teeth, accidents can happen to anyone.
If you have a dental emergency like a broken tooth or a severe toothache, we are here to help.

There are also some important steps you should take if you are faced with a dental emergency.
It is important to ensure your teeth are checked by your dentist even if your symptoms subside.

 

Common dental emergencies

Here are some of the most common types of dental emergencies that we see in our practice:

  • Toothache.
  • Broken tooth or split tooth.
  • Loose crown or tooth cap.

 

How to handle a dental emergency

 

Toothache

We understand that toothache can be very painful and distressing. To reduce pain until you can see your dentist, you can try:

  • gently rinsing your mouth with lukewarm, salty water.
  • flossing between the teeth that are hurting to make sure nothing is stuck and causing pain.
  • using pain relief medication such as ibuprofen or paracetamol.

 

If you experience severe pain, see your dentist urgently.

 

Broken or split tooth

In cases of a broken or split tooth, follow these steps:

  • Call your dentist immediately.
  • Place an ice cube folded in a cloth on the affected area to alleviate pain and reduce swelling and bleeding.

 

Loose crown

If your crown becomes loose or falls out, you should:

  • wrap the loose crown in a tissue or similar protective covering to keep it safe.
  • make an emergency dentist appointment, even if you are not in pain.

 

If you experience any kind of dental emergency, it is important not to panic. Act calmly and quickly, contact us for help and come in for a check-up even if you are not in pain.
