Emergency Dentistry Available In Woden & Canberra
Phillip, ACT based Acacia Dental Group is pleased to reassure their community that world-class emergency dental care is always available at their clinic. They also wish to discuss the different types of dental emergencies and the importance of setting an emergency dental appointment as soon as a problem presents itself.
Dental emergencies can happen at any time due to trauma or injury. Teeth may be cracked, broken and in some cases knocked out due to an accident or other event. In addition to tooth damage, dental emergencies also happen when there is too much bleeding in the mouth; swelling of the face; severe pain in the mouth, teeth, jaw or gums; and when dental fillings or dental implants are lost. Dental emergencies are often non-life threatening in nature, but if the patient cannot breathe, passes out or bleeds uncontrollably, going straight to the A&E is the best course of action instead of calling a dental practice.
One of the most common reasons for an emergency visit to the dentist is toothache. A toothache is usually an indication that the patient has tooth decay, tooth abscess, an exposed nerve or gum disease. Emergency dental care is necessary to identify the root cause of the pain and prevent any secondary infection from occurring.
Another common reason for an emergency visit to the dentist is losing a filling or crown. Such losses are actually common due to normal wear and tear. However, losing them should not be taken lightly, as this could be a sign that another cavity has formed inside of the affected tooth. When the uncapped tooth is also left exposed, the patient may experience tooth and gum sensitivity — and worse, may result in the swelling of the face.
Chipping, breaking or losing a tooth due to trauma or injury is also one of the dental emergencies that one should not ignore. Patients in this condition are advised to visit the dentist immediately to check if the tooth can still be repaired or salvaged. If not, the dentist will explore other options (such as dental bridges and implants) to restore the broken tooth.
