Emergency Dental Treatment

Injuries can occur when you least expect it. Injury to any part of the body should not be ignored. This is all the more true in case of a dental injury.  Injury to the teeth or gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored. Not just injury, sometimes a toothache can flare up rapidly causing you a lot of discomfort in a short period of time. It is extremely important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. The more you delay treatment, the worse the problem becomes.

For years, Bridge Road Dental, Richmond has been the first choice for Emergency Dental services in the Melbourne region. We understand your need for urgent dental care and will prioritise your appointment to make dental services available to you as soon as possible.

The following are some of the most common reasons why someone would seek emergency dental services. You can follow these measures before you before you come meet us.

-Toothache: A toothache can flare up overnight and you may wake up with a swollen face. You can do a few things to mitigate the pain before you see medical attention. First rinse you mouth with warm salt water taking care to not swish too vigorously. You can then apply a cold compress for a few minutes. Reach us as soon as possible for medical attention.

– Knocked out tooth: If you have a knocked out tooth, the first thing to remember is to remain calm. The first thing you will need to do is to ensure any foreign particles are removed. Rinse your mouth with salt water if possible. If salt water is not available, use regular water. Next thing you would want to do is stop the bleeding. Hold down a piece of gauze in the affected area till the blood clots naturally. Place the knocked out tooth in warm water or milk and reach out to us for medical attention as soon as possible.

– Chipped or broken tooth: A chipped or broken tooth can happen with a sudden fall or while you are playing sports. Rinse with salt water and hold down a piece of gauze to stop the bleeding. Try to find any parts of the tooth that you can find and rinse that with warm salty water as well. Reach out to us for immediate medical attention.

These are just a few of the possible emergencies that may occur. You may need immediate medical care for anything from a dislodged crown to a cut lips, tongue or inner cheek. No matter what the emergency, do not ignore the issue. An ignored dental issue can increase the risk permanent damage as well as the need for more extensive or expensive treatment later on.

Like we said, we understand that dental emergencies, like an injury, can happen at any time. If you are experiencing extreme dental pain (e.g. in teeth, mouth, gum, jaw), facial swelling, bleeding, or trauma reach out to us immediately for an appointment. Our staff at Bridge Road Dental, Richmond, are trained to ensure that you get medical attention as soon as possible. We will make sure appointment is prioritised and you get medical attention at the earliest.
