Dental emergencies at Tewantin Dental Centre
What to do with a knocked out tooth
If you or your child experiences dental trauma resulting in a lost tooth, then it’s imperative to contact us straight away. We will only have half an hour to re-install your natural tooth and sometimes this can also be ineffective because of trauma to the tooth root. For the best chance at keeping your natural tooth we recommend storing it in the hollow of your cheek or a glass of milk. It’s always better to prevent this occurrence with the use of a mouthguard because it will save you time, trauma and money in the long run.
What to do if you are experiencing facial swelling?
In general, most facial infections or swelling originate from oral infections. These infections can be caused by dental caries (or decay) that effect tooth pulp. Infected pulps may lead to abscesses (collections of pus causing infection) or periocoronitis (inflammation of soft tissue surrounding a tooth). Failure to administer early treatment may result in osteoperiostitis of the jaw or deep fascial space infection. It is vital to treat any facial swelling, in a timely manner.
What to do if you are experiencing a toothache?
Toothaches (or tooth pain) can often be caused when the nerve of a tooth is irritated, but there are many other causes. Other causes include gum disease, plaque, decay, infection, cracked teeth, loss of tooth, TMJ disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnoea or poorly placed or leaking fillings or crowns.
It's important that you book an appointment as soon as you can, so the cause of the problem can be quickly identified and treated.
What to do if you are experiencing teeth sensitivity?
Teeth sensitivity is typically the result of worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots. Other causes of tooth sensitivity include cavities, cracked teeth or a side effect of other dental procedures, such as tooth whitening.
It is important you contact us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment, so we can identify the source of the sensitivity and treat it.
