Tips and Guidelines To Follow During Dental Emergencies:
Constant, throbbing ache and sensitivity to temperature is not a pleasant experience. There could be many different factors that lead to this situation. From cracking or fracturing your tooth on food, to a large dental decay or even an erupting wisdom tooth. The toothache can be lingering there for some time, it is best to see an emergency dentist Sydney straight away so they can treat the problem straight. If you’re unable to get an appointment right away, take paracetamol to just some relief or ibuprofen if your gums are swollen.
Tooth trauma could be a result of a sporting incident or an accident where a tooth may become loose or knocked out. Being able to see the emergency dentist straight away is very critical and urgent to be able to save the tooth. Please call our practice in North Sydney Dentistry on 8090 1108 to book in an emergency dental care appointment where we will try to book you into a same day appointment and even provide some guidance on immediate action. Therefore, acting immediately from the patient is also very important for a good chance of the tooth to survive. For a loose adult tooth if possible to reposition the tooth into position and stabilise it, the chance for the dentist to save and splint it will be higher. As for a baby tooth if it does become very loose the dentist will often remove it, however it is also dependent on each case.
Procedure for a knocked out tooth could be frightening and scary, but there is still a good chance of saving it. Holding onto the top part of the tooth, the crown. Rinse the tooth underwater for 10 sec and make sure you do not scrub or wipe the root and place it back into the socket. If you can not place it back into the tooth socket, store the knocked tooth in milk or saliva to bring to your dental appointment. If both of these options are unobtainable, wrap the knocked tooth in a moist paper towel, but do not store it in plain water. The sooner we are able to replant the tooth the better chance the tooth will survive. We recommend the duration of 30 mins to 1 hour has the highest rate of survival.
