Dental Emergency Management With Us
Dental Emergencies require specific, problem-focused planning and treatment delivery to stabilise teeth as well as to relieve pain. Our dentists will examine and take an X-ray of the area, discuss your symptoms, and provide a diagnosis along with all treatment options. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each option for you to make a well-informed decision. Our team is gentle and compassionate, well-equipped with knowledge and skills, and dedicated to help when you are in need.
The nature of the problem and the complexity of the procedure define how we will approach each situation. Most of the time, we will be able to deliver the treatment on the same day. However, in some cases, the dental procedure will need be postponed until swelling or infection subsides. Our team will provide supportive management in the meantime, targeting the situation. We are resourceful with our referral service if attention is required from specialists or other health departments.
Prevent Dental Emergencies
The most effective way of preventing Dental Emergencies is to establish a routine dental visit with us. It is recommended by the Australian Dental Association to have your oral examinations and dental cleans done regularly with your trusted professionals. It is at these routine dental appointments that we often detect dental decay, infections, and periodontal diseases at an early stage. This makes it less complicated to treat in the long term, and in case of emergencies, we will have the baseline records of your general and oral health and existing rapport, which will help tremendously in a time of distress.
