Emergency Dentistry

Oralux Dental has been serving the community of Crows Nest, the Lower North Shore, Bella Vista and Hills District since 2013, especially when it comes to emergency dentistry.

Dental emergencies require prompt attention to relieve severe pain, treat an infection or save a tooth. An accident can sometimes result in a knocked-out tooth, and the emergency is apparent, but other times, you may not know why you have been experiencing pain or discomfort. Oralux Dental is here to help.

What to Do in the Event of a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies come in several forms, and some may be more urgent than others. Therefore, the timeliness of your actions after a dental injury will have a bearing on the outcome.

Tooth, Teeth, or Jaw Pain

Dental pain in your tooth, gums or surrounding tissue can make you feel miserable. Several reasons can cause this, including trauma to the mouth, ongoing infection, or a dislodged filling. Sometimes, it will be hard for you to pinpoint exactly where the pain is felt and will require proper diagnosis.

If you are experiencing severe and lasting pain in your tooth or jaw, it’s time to contact us immediately. It is especially true if the pain is accompanied by facial swelling, fever, a bad taste in your mouth or difficulty swallowing.

Signs and symptoms such as these may indicate tooth decay, exposed tooth dentin, a worn-out tooth structure from grinding your teeth, a cracked filling and more. These symptoms may also suggest that an infection is present, and you’ll need a dentist to examine your mouth and provide immediate treatment.

Knocked Out Tooth

If a tooth has been knocked out, you must get in touch with us as quickly as possible. The sooner you can receive treatment, the better the chance your dentist will be able to successfully re-implant the tooth. Handle it as little as possible, and don’t touch the root. Keep it in a glass of milk while waiting for your dental appointment.
^

Cracked or fractured tooth

If your tooth has severely cracked, there’s a large piece missing or there’s nerve damage and you’re experiencing severe pain, contact us immediately. While waiting to be seen by one of our experienced and compassionate dentists, there are a couple of actions you can take to help alleviate the pain and save the tooth. Rinse out your mouth with warm water and salt to clean the area. You may also put a cold compress on your face to keep the swelling down, as well as take pain reliever medications.
^

Tooth Abscess

Tooth or gum abscesses can develop due to trauma or long-standing tooth decay left untreated. A pocket of pus at the root area of the tooth is known as a tooth or gum boil. It can eventually drain pus into your mouth, which results in a foul taste.

If you have a gum boil, contact us immediately and do not poke or pop the bump.

^

Facial Swelling

It can be caused by an infection or an abscess in your tooth or gums. It requires immediate treatment. You may feel your cheek or neck is sensitive, sore or warm to touch.

Control pain with over-the-counter medication, and use a cold compress to help control the swelling. Seek prompt dental treatment.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies are highly preventable by avoiding injury to your mouth. Several precautions, such as wearing a mouthguard when playing sport, avoiding chewing hard foods such as ice or lollies and avoiding opening containers with your teeth, can prevent damage.
