Harrison Dental Care
Emergency dentists specialise in a wide range of emergency dental services, including lost fillings, oral infections, broken or chipped teeth, root canals, lost or broken crowns, extractions, broken veneers or dentures, wisdom teeth removal, and more.
If you have a dental emergency, it’s important not to waste a moment. See your dentist right away instead of waiting for your next appointment. Getting immediate assistance protects your teeth for the long term by promoting good oral health, preventing further infection or damage.
In order to save teeth in time, you need to seek help as soon as possible, but recommend that you call ahead first. An emergency dentist will then make a thorough assessment of your teeth, which will help us to diagnose the problem and decide on what course of treatment is best suited to your needs.
To alleviate pain and to reduce the risk of tooth trauma in the meantime, make sure to gently place a tooth back in its socket if it’s been knocked out. If dirty, wash it in milk. Do not scrub the root or wash it in tap water.
For a chipped or cracked tooth, rinse your mouth or brush the affected area with a soft toothbrush. Keep all fragments for your dentist to examine. Use a cold compress if swelling occurs.
For a toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water and seek pain relief by taking either paracetamol or ibuprofen. Avoid eating hot foods or drinking cold beverages.
