Emergency Dental Treatment On The Northern Gold Coast
If you’re not sure if a dental problem is an emergency, we offer this advice: If it hurts, it’s an emergency. If your Injury seems small, it can still affect the living tissues inside the teeth. Quick treatment improves the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth, and consequently, damaged nerves or blood vessels.
If you ignore dental pain or dental injury, you’re taking a chance, because there is also a risk of getting an infection, which can become life threatening. Most Dental Emergencies are usually relief of acute pain, emergency root canal treatment or an extraction.
In some circumstances, these emergencies may involve:
Chipped/Broken Teeth or Lost Fillings
Trauma & Sports Injuries
Broken Dentures or Partials
Infections Causing Swelling of the face/jaws (e.g. due to a dental abscess)
Patients who are bleeding from their mouth (e.g. following removal of a tooth)
