Oral Health Emergencies & After- Hours
Dental emergencies can be a traumatic experience, and we understand that not all cases occur during working hours. Therefore, we offer after hour emergency care for dental work that needs immediate attention. Some of the most common cases include tissue bleeding, severe toothache, broken teeth, wisdom teeth pain, and cosmetic fixes for broken or lost teeth.
Please note: If you have suffered from trauma to your head resulting in loss of consciousness or bleeding from the nose or ears, please go to the hospital immediately. If you are suffering from severe headaches, dizziness or ear aches that are not directly associated with your teeth, you should first be assessed by a medical doctor.
For less severe cases or specifically dental scenarios, please follow the tips below:
If you have a loose tooth from an accident or sports injury, please see a dentist immediately. If you can reposition the tooth into place, there is a good chance your dentist will be able to save it. Baby teeth are naturally loose, so will often be removed.
Loose teeth can also occur as a result of gum issues. For this situation, we often treat the major presenting problem and then formulate a long-term management plan for better gum health.
Knocked out Teeth.
If your tooth is knocked out, there is a good chance your dentist will be able to save it if found. Make sure you rinse the tooth under water for approximately 10 seconds. Do not rub or wipe the tooth as this can cause damage to the roots. If the tooth has been found within an hour of falling out, place it back into the socket as this gives the most chance of surviving. If you are unable to place the tooth back into the socket, store it in a glass of milk, saliva, or a moist paper towel. Do not store in plain water. All cases of a knocked-out tooth must be urgently seen by a dentist. Most will splint the tooth to the surrounding teeth for a minimum of 1-2 weeks. If a child or baby loses a tooth, do not place it back into the socket.
Fractures can range from minor to severe depending on where the fracture occurs. If you experience sharp pain when eating or drinking, this could indicate that a fracture has occurred. Dentists can easily fix this with a filling, crown or root canal (for more serious cases), but please keep in mind that fractures are unpredictable and can vary greatly in terms of the appropriate treatment, depending on the severity of the fracture. Some fractures may even require loss of the tooth. Usually an X-ray and some tests will determine the extent of the fracture and what treatment is required. Serious fractures that expose the dentine and pulp of the tooth need to be treated immediately.
At our Oral Clinc, we welcome all Health Funds, and can perform on the spot claims using the HICAPS machine. Call out fees for Dentists and Nurses are $350.
