Emergency Dental Care in Acacia Ridge
Whether you cracked a tooth while playing your favourite sport or woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible toothache, you need emergency dental care quickly. At Full Smile Dental, we will provide advice over the phone and aim to get you into the practice as soon as possible. Each day, we keep some slots open exclusively for dental emergencies so contact us straightaway.
How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies
If you experience a toothache, contact us as soon as possible for an appointment. Until you can come in, use a cold compress to ease the swelling and consider taking an over-the-counter pain reliever such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen or use a topical numbing gel. You also can rinse your mouth with warm salt water.
A Knocked-Out Tooth
Call us straightaway if you knocked out your tooth so we can get you in as quickly as possible. If you re-implant a tooth within 30 minutes of it being knocked out, it has the greatest chance of surviving.
- Handle the tooth by the crown (top portion), not by the root.
- Clean the tooth with milk or saline solution.
- Hold the displaced tooth in its socket. If you are unable to place the tooth back in its socket, then keep it in your mouth near your check. You also could place it in a small container of milk.
- Come immediately to our practice or the nearest emergency room if we are unavailable.
Addressing a dental injury as fast as possible is vital so don’t delay seeking care.
Prevention Is Always Best
While dental emergencies happen when we least expect them, taking a proactive approach to dental care can help to address small issues before they turn into bigger problems. Our experienced dentists can detect any dental problems that your child may have so we encourage you to bring them in for twice-yearly appointments.
Our caring and compassionate dentists and team members always ensure that your visits to our practice, whether for an emergency or a checkup, are always pleasant. Contact us today to book an appointment!
