No matter how much you take good care of your teeth accidents still happen, especially when you least expect it. To reduce the impact of dental accidents on your overall health and be on the road to recovery as soon as possible, it helps to know what to do in a dental emergency and visit your dentist for emergency dental care.

Common dental emergencies that require immediate attention

There is the possibility of a chip or a crack if you feel your tooth aching, or it is very sensitive to hot and cold.

It may only be visible to your dentist because they have the tendency to be so tiny, but is repairable with a filling or dental crown. 

It is also possible for a knocked out tooth to be reattached given that it is still in one piece so immediately see a dentist within an hour or 2.

Contact our emergency dentist Mornington Peninsula in Balnarring to arrange a priority appointment and before going, carefully place the tooth back into the socket or store it in a cup of milk.

Tooth decay or cavities inside the tooth are among the other possible reasons for tooth pain and sensitivity.

Apply an ice pack on the outside of your cheek to help you relieve the pain or swelling. Rinsing your mouth using saltwater may also help in the clearing of food and debris.

Do not apply heat to a swelling if you do not want to worsen the situation. 

Get a professional diagnosis and treatment recommendation from an emergency dentist. A cavity on your tooth may need a filling, or a root canal treatment for an infected tooth.

There are several reasons for gums to be sore, but a partially erupted wisdom tooth or a dental abscess below the gum may cause the sudden and severe gum pain.

The pain may be lessened through the rinsing of your mind using a mild saltwater solution. Do not put aspirin directly onto the gum, because it might cause permanent damage.

Contact your emergency dentist for a diagnosis and treatment if you experience gum pain as it may be a symptom of a more serious oral health problem. This may involve cleaning the area to remove an infection or wisdom teeth removal.

The risk of dental accidents are greater if a child is living an active life.

Reduce the risk of injuries by having them wear a mouthguard when playing sports, but it is equally as important to know what to do and how to stay calm if the worst happens.

Mornington Peninsula has an emergency dentist team that is qualified and experienced to deal with common dental accidents involving children and pre-teens.

A child may bite their lip or get a cut, but the bleeding can be managed with the application of firm pressure using a clean cloth or gauze. Reduce the bruising and swelling with the application of an ice pack.

If it has been more than 15 minutes and the lip continues to bleed, talk to an emergency dentist for advice or to make a same day appointment.

Reattachment of a child’s baby tooth, once lost, is impossible but it’s still important to see a dentist as soon as possible.

Getting your child to our dental clinic within 1 to 2 hours if they are about to lose a permanent tooth would give us the chance to save it.

The tooth should be rinsed gently, avoid touching the roots, and try to place it back into the socket. Place it in a cup of milk if it will no longer fit, then call an emergency dentist for assistance.

Children’s mouths may be in pain or injured due to broken braces, and it may also affect the success of their orthodontic treatment.

In order to prevent injuries, the sharp edges of wires should be covered with cotton, but you should not try removing an orthodontic appliance yourself. Instead, contact our dentists for emergency dental care.
