Emergency Dentist Gympie
Ignoring a toothache will only make the problem worse. Even if the pain goes away, the dental problem that caused it still remains. In fact the problem will keep progressively get worse until it is treated by our emergency dentist.
A dental emergency should be addressed as soon as possible, and is best managed by a dentist. Getting the right Gympie emergency dental treatment done can save your teeth as well as relieve your toothache and discomfort.
Having a broken tooth means that there is a problem with the tooth itself. Teeth may break due to extensive decay, heavy grinding or an old filling. Whatever the cause, the broken tooth must be fixed. Having a broken tooth means that the inside of the tooth is completely exposed and allows for bacteria to invade the tooth and result in infection. A broken tooth is also mechanically weakened and much more prone to fracture.
Our emergency dentist will assess your broken tooth and let you know exactly what is required to save the tooth. We will go through the options and also the costs involved.
Knocked Out Tooth
Teeth are strong and don’t normally break. However sometimes accidents and sporting injuries can occur. If you have had a tooth knocked out, place it in a container of milk and bring it immediately to our emergency dental team. If it is within 1 hour, there is a possibility that we can still save the tooth. Do NOT wash the broken tooth under water.
Our emergency dentist will have a look at the tooth when you bring it in and assess whether we can replace the tooth back in the socket. If that is not possible, we will go through the options with you to replace the tooth.
