how do you know it's a dental emergency?
Not every dental situation is an emergency!
We have listed some emergencies to help you know when you need to seek immediate assistance.
Lost or broken filling or crown
A missing or loose filling can allow bacteria to develop between the tooth and the filling, causing the situation to worsen. The longer you keep it unattended, the higher the chances of your tooth
Fractured or cracked tooth
An accidental fall can lead to a cracked, fractured or even an avulsed/lost tooth. An avulsed tooth is an emergency that requires immediate attention. A cracked or fractured tooth can cause sensitivity or a severe toothache if the nerve is affected. If such a situation arises, you are recommended to reach out to us immediately. If the crack is minor, our emergency dentist may repair it with filling material. However, if the impact of the fall causes nerve damage then appropriate treatment will be recommended and may include a root canal therapy.
Tooth 'Nerve pain'
We recommend that you book an emergency dental appointment in case you experience
Any facial swelling is an emergency that requires immediate medical attention. A tooth infection can cause your gums or face to swell. We recommend that you book an emergency dental appointment in case of any facial swelling and let our friendly receptionist know that there is facial swelling so we can make time to see you immediately. Sometimes the swelling may occur due to wisdom tooth problems or other dental issues. No matter what the cause for the swelling is, ensure you contact us immediately as the spread of infection can lead to very serious conditions, including death.
