First things first, give us a call on 5444 7111 and speak to one of our receptionists to organise an appointment – or if it’s after hours leave a message. If you feel it can’t wait contact your dentist on their mobile number which will be on your last appointment card, or reach out to us on Facebook.
In an extreme situation such as facial trauma or facial swelling go straight to the closest hospital or call 000 for an ambulance.
If it’s a baby tooth, just leave it alone- they should never be put back in the socket. Give us a call and make an appointment for a dentist to assess.
It is important that the front teeth are repositioned so the back teeth can touch ASAP.
If you’re too squeamish, let us do it. Come in to get things assessed.
We can make broken front teeth gorgeous again with a variety of techniques, and back teeth can be made strong again with a repair or rebuild.
Don’t leave things without getting them fixed – the aim is to avoid more complex treatment, such as a root canal/endodontic treatment or extraction.
It’s probably going to be an easy fix or even just advice on brushing differently. But DON’T leave it in the hope it goes away. How long would you drive your car with the oil light on or smoke coming out of the bonnet?
If it’s sensitive to hot as well, it may be an abscess developing. Don’t leave it.
If it’s aching all the time, we have a problem. There are flames coming out of the engine. Just get here fast…..before you end up with……
Even if the pain goes away. Procrastination may make the problem far worse.
