A dental emergency can mean anything from a severe toothache to a tooth knocked out. Dental emergencies may also include a tooth loosened after a ball to the face during a sporting event or:
- Jaw swelling
- Face swelling
- Broken restoration
- Broken tooth
Some dental health issues need attention promptly but are not necessarily dental emergencies, including:
- Chronic or periodic tooth sensitivity
- Small chip in a tooth that is not causing pain
- A whisper of blood following a minor gum trauma like a cut from a crisp
We advise patients to contact our Mount Waverley dental clinic at the first sign of oral health changes. If you suddenly develop tooth sensitivity, for example, this could be the sign of a small cavity or the start of a root infection. For your own wellness and comfort, Dr Rhee and Dr Huynh like to see patients before minor dental issues become painful dental problems.
Also, if you’ve suffered a trauma, always go to the hospital first and contact a member of our Mount Waverley dental team from there. We want you to be safe.
If you’ve knocked out your tooth, keep it moist until you see your Mount Waverley, VIC dentist. With timely intervention, we may be able to reattach your tooth.
