Emergency Dental In Sunshine For Those Urgent Issues
Accidents often occur at the most inconvenient times, which is frustrating when you are in agony and you need to sort the problem as soon as practically possible. At Sunshine Dental Group we undertake an important responsibility by providing emergency dental in Sunshine, especially when you need urgent dental attention for acute pain to teeth, gums, or the jaw. Seeking help quickly is your best chance to save your teeth, manage infection, and reduce and prevent the situation from getting worse.
Take a hit in the field
One of the most common causes for requiring emergency dental is due to sports-related injuries. Accidents due to contact sport is a common cause for potentially serious mouth damage. This could be anything from a chipped or broken tooth to an aggravated abscess. We prioritise patient care based on your condition and treat accordingly, so please get in touch if you require urgent medical attention.
Those inconvenient wisdom teeth
Have you been meeting with our dentists for regular check-ups to manage your wisdom teeth? Sometimes our patients may experience localised pain in their gums, and may even feel pressure due to impacting teeth. At Sunshine Dental Group, our dentists may need to organise an emergency wisdom tooth removal to alleviate an infection or protect neighbouring teeth that may be impacted or crowded within the gums. Obvious impact symptoms include gum inflammation, throbbing pressure at the back of the jaw and pain. If you are not sure if this applies to you, call in for a check-up to be on the safe side.
Fix those dentures—emergency dental in Sunshine
Did you know that depending on the state of your partial or full dental plates, it may be possible to repair and re-align them? We are here to assist you with a range of options.
Dentures tend to change the shape of your mouth and jaw over time. We recommend that a dentist should be evaluating plates and artificial teeth at least every six months to be proactive about your long-term oral health. Whether you lose a crown, knock out a tooth, endure a toothache, or are concerned about infection, our emergency dentist will respond, which is why you should not delay in reaching out to us for assistance. Call today.
What to do when you knock out a permanent tooth
If you happen to lose a permanent tooth, if applicable, please immediately place it back in the tooth socket and contact us as soon as possible.
Hold the loose tooth by the crown. If it is dirty, gently wash it with milk or saline solution (salt water) for a few seconds only. Place the tooth back into its socket, making sure that it is facing the right way. Give us a call for emergency dental in Sunshine.
If you cannot return the tooth to its socket, you should wrap it in plastic or leave it in milk or a normal saline solution and take it to the dentist. Ensure you do not handle the tooth by the root or allow the tooth to dry out.
It is important to note that you should not place a milk-saturated tooth or baby tooth back into its socket.
