If a tooth or filling gets damaged or falls out, if you have an unexplained toothache or another dental emergency, it's important to see a dentist as soon as possible.
Emergency dental care improves the chance of making a full recovery and lowers the risk of infections and other complications. You shouldn't have to wait days or even weeks to get the urgent care you need.
At Sydney CBD Dental, we know that time is of the essence when you're worried about your teeth or suffering from pain and discomfort. That's why we set aside time every day to deal with urgent cases at short notice.
Our emergency dentists in Sydney have the training and expertise to respond to all types of situations in a calm and coordinated manner.
We'll assess your requirements on the same day, provide immediate pain relief and make sure you're not as risk of infection. If you need a dental treatment, we can schedule a follow-up visit at the nearest convenient time.
Our experienced dentists are sensitive to the emotional distress a dental emergency can cause. Our caring bedside manner and sedation options for anxious patients can help patients to feel calm and make the experience less upsetting.
At Sydney CBD Dental we have made provisions for emergency appointments for walk-ins and existing patients.
If you are suffering from tooth pain or toothache, take some anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen to help ease the pain or paracetamol. Take two paracetamol pills and wait two to three hours before repeating the dose again.
Even if you take good care of your teeth, accidents can happen when you least expect it. Knowing what to do in a dental emergency and visiting your dentist for emergency dental care can reduce the impact of dental accidents on your overall health and help you get started on the road to recovery.
Common dental emergencies that require immediate attention include:
If you've got a toothache or your tooth feels very sensitive to hot and cold, it might be chipped or cracked.
Cracks can sometimes be tiny and may only be visible to your dentist, who may be able to repair the tooth with a filling or dental crown.
If a tooth is knocked out completely and it's still in one piece, it may be possible to reattach it if you can see a dentist within 1 to 2 hours.
Carefully place the tooth back into the socket or store it in a cup of milk and contact our emergency dentist Sydney to arrange a priority appointment.
Other reasons for tooth pain and sensitivity can be tooth decay or cavities inside the tooth.
You can try to relieve the pain or swelling by applying an ice pack to the outside of your cheek. Rinsing your mouth with salt water could also help to clear away food and debris.
Do not apply heat to a swelling, as this can make matters worse.
Gums may feel sore for a number of reasons, but sudden and severe gum pain may be caused by a partially erupted wisdom tooth or a dental abscess below the gum.
You can try to ease the pain by rinsing your mouth with a mild salt water solution. Do not put aspirin directly onto the gum, as this could cause permanent damage.
Gum pain is sometimes a symptom of a more serious oral health problem, so you should contact an emergency dentist for diagnosis and treatment. This may involve cleaning the area to remove an infection or wisdom teeth removal.
Children's active lives can put them at greater risk of dental accidents.
Wearing a mouth guard when playing sports can reduce the risk of injuries, but it's still important to know what to do and how to stay calm if the worst happens.
Our Sydney emergency dentist team is qualified and experienced to deal with common dental accidents involving children and pre-teens.
If your child bites their lip or it gets cut, you can manage the bleeding by applying firm pressure with a clean cloth or gauze. Bruising or swelling may be reduced by applying an ice pack.
If lip bleeding continues for more than 15 minutes, talk to an emergency dentist for advice or to make a same day appointment.
If your child loses a baby tooth, these cannot be reattached, but it's still important to see a dentist as soon as possible.
If they lose a permanent tooth, there's a chance it could be saved if you can get to our dental clinic within 1 to 2 hours.
Rinse the tooth gently, avoiding touching the roots, and try to place it back into the socket. If it doesn't fit, place it in a cup of milk and contact an emergency dentist for assistance.
Broken braces may cause pain or injuries to children's mouths, as well as affecting the success of their orthodontic treatment.
Sharp edges of wires should be covered with cotton to prevent injuries, but do not try to remove an orthodontic appliance yourself. Instead, contact our dentists for emergency dental care.
Whatever type of dental emergency you're dealing with, contact Sydney CBD Dental for professional advice and emergency dental care when you need it.
