Emergency Dentist Brisbane
Emergency Dentist Brisbane
Our emergency dentists will carry out a dental examination and determine the most appropriate type of treatment to be administered. This will be emergency temporary, emergency basic or emergency full treatment that may be followed up by subsequent appointments during normal surgery hours. Common emergency dentist calls include toothache, chipped or broken teeth, broken crowns, veneers or bridges, tooth abscess, broken orthodontic braces, broken dentures, wisdom tooth extraction, gum infection etc.
What should you do in case of a dental emergency?
In the event of an emergency, immediately call our dental practice and schedule an appointment. Describe your emergency in detail so you can get instant advice before your scheduled appointment.
How can you cure a toothache?
Immediately contact a dentist in case you are suffering from a toothache. Take some recommended painkillers like Paracetamol or Ibuprofen. You should make sure that you read the label first and avoid going over the maximum dose.
In cases of swelling, what should you do?
Usually, a swelling occurs because of an infection. There might be a slight infection in your teeth or gum tissue, or there might even be large amount of abscess that has to be drained. An infected swelling would usually feel quite tender and warm to the touch. You have to call immediately so you could be accurately diagnosed. After checking your teeth thoroughly, an appropriate treatment would be prescribed, as well as antibiotics.
What should you do in case your crown falls off?
Call the Tooth Booth dental practice immediately in case this happens.You have to keep your crown secure so you can have it re-cemented as soon as you can to prevent further damage.
What should you do in case you have a broken denture?
Usually, a broken denture is relatively easy to repair. But never attempt to repair it on your own since this could result to further damage. Immediately schedule an appointment for repair.
What are dental injuries?
Dental injuries include teeth that may be forced out of its position (extruded), broken (fractured) or knocked out. Injuries to the mouth are generally painful and have to be immediately treated by a dentist.
Knocked Out Teeth
Once a tooth has been knocked out, you should recover it and remove any dirt or debris by washing it. You should not handle the root so you could protect the fibers in the root surface. But you can try to put the clean tooth back in its socket since it is possible to re-implant the tooth within 30 minutes of injury. Or you could alternatively store the tooth inside a glass of cold milk. Immediately schedule an appointment by calling the dental emergency hotline.
If the tooth is pushed inward or outward and is out of place, you should apply a light finger pressure to reposition it to its normal alignment. Do not force it into its socket. Use a moist tissue or gauze to hold the tooth in its place. Immediately see a dentist.
The treatment of a fractured tooth depends on the degree of its injury. But whatever the degree of damage might be, you should see a dentist to get the appropriate treatment. Do not panic because it is easy to restore a fractured tooth. But if it feels painful, try to avoid biting in that area or eating hot or cold foods for the mean time.
For a minor fracture, a dentist can smooth it out and minimize the injury or do a composite restoration to it. Take extra care of your tooth for several days after treatment.
You may have a moderate fracture if there is damage to your enamel, dentin or pulp. A permanent crown may be used if there is no permanent damage to the pulp. But if there were damage to it, then you would need further treatment.
Usually, a severe fracture would mean that the tooth is traumatized and there is little chance of recovery. Dental injuries include puncture wounds, tears and lacerations to the tongue, cheek or lips. In the event of an injury, have the wound cleaned, sutured and repaired. If there is bleeding due to a tongue laceration, then try to pull the tongue forward and use gauze to put some pressure on it.

The main dental emergencies we encounter are serious tooth decay requiring root canal therapy, trauma and damage to the tooth, and tooth loss.
Root canal therapy is often required when our patient’s tooth decay has become so serious that it is causing considerable and ongoing pain. Our Brisbane Dentist only perform this procedure in the instance that more minor restorative treatments are no longer suitable. Given the newest developments in dentistry, as well as our comprehensive range of dental anxiety management options, we can ensure that you are comfortable and at ease through your root canal therapy.
Trauma can occur in a number of ways, commonly in sporting accidents. A knock to your tooth can result in substantial pain, as well as requiring immediate attention to correct the damage. It is important to correct chips or cracks as soon as possible as ignoring these concerns can lead to the tooth’s pulp becoming exposed to bacteria, often consequently causing an infection. Often cracks and chips, especially those that are only superficial, can be easy protected and corrected in the safe hands of our Brisbane Dentist professionals.
Tooth loss can be quite a serious dental concern, especially if it is a result of sudden trauma or serious decay. If your tooth loss is a result of trauma it is important to contact our dental professionals immediately as you only have a small window of time where your natural tooth can be saved and placed back in your mouth.
It is essential that you handle the lost tooth by the crown of the tooth (the visible part of the tooth) and not the root. This is because there are specialised cells on the root of your tooth that need to remain intact in order to fuse back into your jawbone. You can clean the tooth if you need to using milk, then either place the tooth back in the socket or store it in a glass of milk while you wait to get to your appointment.
