And provide priority same-day appointment (Emergency Dental Beerwah) to ensure you get out of pain as quickly as possible.We understand that dental emergencies never happen at a good time and that any sort of dental pain or discomfort can be very unpleasant, which is why we provide priority same-day appointments six days a week and early and late appointment times. Our team has years of experience in general and emergency dentistry and treat all ages, so no matter if you have a child with a sporting injury or an elderly parent with a sore tooth, we will be able to help in a caring and compassionate way.
Toothache is a sign that something is wrong with your tooth and you should never ignore it, even if it seems to initially disappear. It is often caused by an infection that will need dental treatment to clear it up and to hopefully save your tooth. Toothache can take the form of a shooting pain whenever you bite down, or it could be a consistent and throbbing pain.
If you can, save any pieces of broken teeth and bring the fragments with you to your appointment. In the meantime, rinse your mouth with warm water to help remove any remaining debris.
If you have knocked out a tooth, then you need to act quickly. Sometimes it is possible to re-insert it within the first half an hour to an hour after the accident.
If you have partially dislodged a tooth, then you will need to come and see us as soon as possible. With the correct care, we can often replant the tooth and will repair it if necessary. Extruded teeth may become loose, or a knock could have forced the tooth deeper into the gum tissues.
Dental Filling - If you lose a filling or have an older filling that has begun to crumble away, it is important to get it replaced as soon as you can. A missing filling will allow bacteria to get into your tooth, causing more decay. This could lead to a tooth infection, requiring root canal therapy to prevent tooth loss. It is so much easier and cheaper to simply get that filling renewed, so please contact us for an appointment to see our dentist. We are an amalgam-free dental practice as modern filling materials are healthier for your teeth. Using the latest tooth coloured composite resins, we can nearly invisibly fill a cavity.
If a dental crown falls off, you will need to get it replaced as soon as you can. The tooth underneath the crown will be particularly vulnerable to infection and decay as a substantial part of its structure will have been removed during preparation for the crown. If you can, save the crown, as it is possible for it to be cleaned and re-cemented back onto your tooth by our dentist.
Any type of breakage must be professionally repaired as soon as possible (Broken Braces Wires). If you delay, then it could affect the efficacy of your orthodontic treatment and may mean it takes longer to complete. Please contact your orthodontist for an appointment if you break a wire or any part of your orthodontic appliance. You should never try to mend an orthodontic appliance yourself as you could end up damaging it beyond repair. Your orthodontist will soon be able to sort out the problem so treatment can continue and they will ensure your braces are properly adjusted.
Brackets are cemented onto teeth but can come loose, particularly if you have eaten something very hard or crunchy and which could damage your brace. Bands are also cemented onto teeth and can sometimes become dislodged or loose. Although not a serious problem, brackets and bands should always be professionally repaired. Your orthodontist will soon be able to repair your orthodontic appliance so treatment can continue. Please book an appointment as soon as possible, otherwise, the damage could slow down the progress of your treatment.
A dental abscess is an infection that affects the root of a tooth, or it can develop in between the teeth and gums. It is a very serious condition that can damage surrounding tissues and teeth and the infection can spread, affecting general health.
Injuries to the soft tissues of your mouth can easily bleed. This includes injuries to your cheeks, lips, gums and tongue.
