A simple toothache can ruin your day. Some toothaches are worse than others and may even intermittently recur for several days. Your work, leisure time, and eating routines will be gravely affected. At Smile Craft Dental, we understand that emergencies arise and we need to be able to treat you immediately.
Conveniently located in Wingham, Tuncurry and Newcastle, we’re able to help patients with emergency dental treatments across New South Wales, including in Forster, Taree and Wallsend. The wording for this sentence needs to be changed. Our fully equipped and modern practices will put you at ease, diagnosing and treating your issue in no time. If any patient has suffered from a traumatic incident, such as an avulsed tooth (tooth knocked out), dental abscess, facial swelling, or even a fractured tooth, then we will see you on the day and help you through your dental problem.
It can be very overwhelming to handle a dental emergency. The most important thing to remember is not to panic. Our dentists have listed a few tips to help you in a dental emergency and can offer additional advice over the phone until you can get in to see us.
If your tooth is knocked out in an accident, please follow these steps:
If you have a toothache, then try rinsing the mouth with warm (but not hot) salty water, which will provide temporary relief from pain and gum problems.
Keep the tooth clean and contact us as soon as possible.
You should not put any pain killers directly on the gums as this can lead to the burning of gum tissue.
Injuries to the jaw can be serious require immediate action.
You can either come to our practice immediately for us to arrange an appropriate referral or alternatively go directly to the emergency room at your nearest hospital.
Teeth can fracture or displace due to trauma and need urgent attention to increase the chances of saving them. Trauma also means the dental nerves are exposed and can cause significant pain if they come in contact with the air.
We keep emergency appointments for these unforeseen problems. Definitive treatment can be provided after a full mouth examination where we can discuss your options and secure your dental health for the long term.
