If you have a dental emergency, you need to call us now on 1300 467 112. The longer you wait, the worse the pain can become. If the pain is constantly on your mind, it means it’s time to come in to have it looked after.
Remember pain is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. In a sensitive and important area like our mouths, pain shouldn’t be ignored.
Here are some tips to help you assess your condition:
Knocked out tooth:
If the tooth is dirty or has blood on it, rinse it in milk holding it by the crown. If milk is not available, use water for a few seconds, then put the tooth back in the socket. If you can’t replant the tooth in your mouth, wrap in Cling Wrap (or similar) or place it in milk or keep it in your mouth inside the cheek/lip. Be careful when doing this so as not to accidentally swallow the tooth. To be successful in replanting the tooth, time is critical, and you should visit us within 30 minutes, if possible. Call 1300 467 112.
Broken or chipped tooth:
Try to clean the injured area with warm water. If the broken tooth/teeth has been caused by a blow, place a cold pack on your face next to the injured area to help reduce swelling. If you can find the bits of tooth that are missing please bring them with you, keeping them in a wet or damp cloth. Most chipped teeth can be bonded back onto the teeth with great results.
- Try to get some relief from the pain by rinsing your mouth out with water then try to clean out any obvious cavities.
- Use dental floss to remove any food that might be trapped between your teeth or gums.
- If you have any swelling, place a cold pack on the outside of the cheek (no heat packs).
- Take pain relief if necessary. They must be swallowed as directed on the packaging. Do not apply any painkillers or other substances on or near the tooth.
