Dental Emergency Service Melbourne

At Gorgeous Smiles, we know the importance of a simple smile. Therefore, we could not bear the idea of you not being able to share your Gorgeous Smile due to tooth pain, a missing tooth or any other dental problem. This is why we offer emergency dental care – because the world needs your smile.

When a dental issue occurs, fast treatment is often integral in limiting the damage done. If you find yourself victim to a dental emergency, it is essential to assess the severity of the case and consult a dentist as soon as possible to determine if urgent dental treatment is needed.

Common Dental Emergencies Include:

1. A chipped or broken tooth

In the occurrence of a broken tooth, it is important to act fast to prevent bacteria damage or infection to the vulnerable tooth. You should locate any pieces of your teeth if possible, as these may be reattached, depending on the case. We also recommend avoiding any hot or cold food or drinks, as they may cause severe pain to the tooth. You should also avoid chewing with the broken tooth if possible. It’s highly recommended to call one of our local emergency dentist open on Saturday and all weekdays to have that removed as soon as possible.

2. A knocked-out tooth

When a tooth is knocked out, there is still a possibility of your local emergency dentist reattaching the tooth if it is not too damaged. You should first immediately find the tooth, but avoid touching the root of the tooth, which you should wash with milk. Then, either coat the tooth in your saliva by placing it in your mouth and then a container or soak the tooth in milk. If it is possible, you can also try to place the tooth back into the tooth socket to increase its chances of survival.

3. Severe Sensitivity and/or Tooth Pain

This pain is generally a sign of another dental issue, such as a cavity, fractured tooth, infection or damaged nerve. If the pain is felt only while chewing, you should visit the dentist; however, if the pain stays constant even after chewing, you should seek emergency dental treatment.

While waiting to see the dentist, it is beneficial to wash your mouth out with salt water, floss to remove any excess food and to take pain medication if necessary.

4. An Abscess or Dental Infection

These are infections that form around the root or gums of the tooth that causes pain, redness and fever. They must be treated immediately to avoid the spread of bacteria that can cause further damage.

Urgent Dental Pain Relief

To reduce the risk of a dental emergency, it is important to:

  • Practice regular dental hygiene – brush twice daily, floss regularly and use mouth wash.
  • Use a mouthguard while playing contact sports.
