We accept walk-ins and prioritise emergencies. Give us a call or walk-in if you have any of the following dental emergencies:
Dental emergencies can occur at any time, and one needs to be prepared to handle them properly. Being adequately informed can mean the difference between saving a tooth or losing it. One may need to reach a dentist's office urgently, and so having an emergency number available at all times is extraordinarily important.
Types of dental emergencies that may arise:
Broken/ chipped/ cracked Tooth
If your tooth suddenly chips, cracks or breaks first rinse your mouth with warm water. Then the next thing you should do is get a cold compress and apply it on the affected area to relieve pain and avoid swelling. You can also take a few pain killers then rush to your dentist for proper medication.
Road accidents often result in broken jaw dental emergency cases. When this happens, the best thing you can do aside from calling for an ambulance for medical officers to arrive is to apply cold pressure on the affected area and help stop the bleeding.
When one of your fillings falls out that is an indication that there is decay underneath. When you experience this, the recommended thing to do is to temporarily place back the fallen out filling with the help of sugarless gum so that the dental nerves of the tooth are not exposed. If you feel the pain you can apply some clove oil to the area. Then proceed to see your dentist for the necessary treatment procedure.
This is the most common of all dental emergencies. One could develop a throbbing pain, sensitivity to hot or cold liquids, or pain arising from an infected tooth, among others. Make sure there no or food particles or foreign objects trapped between the teeth. These can be removed by dental floss. To help relieve the pain, take a painkiller and a visit to a dentist immediately.
Knocked Out Tooth
Knocked out teeth are common in both adults and children, especially in sports injury. If someone knocks out their own tooth completely then simply ask him to rinse it off with a mixture of salt and water. Never rub or scrub the tooth or any tissue which you may see on it. Take the knocked out tooth and hurry to your dentist office for treatment.
Loose Brackets and Bands
If your braces suddenly loosen, then you may attach it back in place with the help of orthodontic wax. Just apply the wax over the brace so it can act as a cushion. Nevertheless, it is vital that you immediately inform your dentist about it so he or she can provide you other instructions that will help lessen tooth complications in the future.
