Emergency Dental in Balmain
Dental accidents can happen when you least expect, but when you can see an emergency dentist right away, there’s a better chance of making a full recovery. At Dentistry by Design, we make time for urgent appointments during our normal office hours, so you won’t have to delay getting the care you need.
If you’ve got a sudden toothache, a chipped or knocked-out tooth or another dental emergency, call us now on 02 9810 5507 for advice or to book a same-day appointment at our Balmain dental clinic.
Knocked out tooth
Losing a permanent tooth can be an upsetting experience, but trying to stay calm and following your dentist’s advice can help you avoid complications and making the problem worse.
If the tooth is still intact, and you’re able to see our dentists within an hour, there’s a chance we could successfully reattach the tooth. If this isn’t possible, we can discuss your options for replacing the tooth and restoring your smile, such as a dental implant or bridge.
Chipped or cracked tooth
Teeth can be damaged in many ways, from hard foods to sporting injuries to motor vehicle accidents. Even a seemingly minor chip or crack can weaken a tooth and could cause pain or lead to infection, so it’s important to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible.
Depending on how severe the damage is, our dentists can restore a tooth by placing a crown, filling or other restoration. Root canal treatment may also be needed if the interior of the tooth is exposed.
A sudden toothache may be benign or it could be a warning sign of a serious problem. Our team can advise you about pain relief methods over the phone and book you in for an urgent appointment with a dentist who can check for signs of damage or infection.
Abscess or swelling
Toothache accompanied by swelling, fever and other signs of infection may be caused by a dental abscess in the gum. An abscess won’t go away by itself and needs to be removed by a dentist. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water can help to reduce discomfort until your appointment.
Lip, tongue or cheek injury
You should also see an emergency dentist if you accidentally bite or injure your lip, tongue or cheeks and bleeding persists for more than 15 minutes or you think you might have an infection. Our experts can advise you about how to clean the area and ways to stop the bleeding.
Lost filling or crown
If you lose or damage a dental restoration or appliance – whether it’s a filling, crown or denture or orthodontic braces or aligners – this could also put your mouth at risk of injury or infection. Our dentists will check for any signs of problems and discuss your options for repair or replacement.
