Almost everyone will have a dental emergency at one time or another—maybe more than one. These emergencies are inconvenient, painful and worrying. At Lumino Smiles Dental, we never want our patients to be inconvenienced, in pain, or worrying unnecessarily. We want to treat your emergency as soon as possible.
Making Time for Dental Emergencies
In our dental clinic, we set aside time to treat dental emergencies and consider this a regular part of our dental service.
If we were going to tell you what to look for in an emergency dentist, our first suggestion would be to seek out a dentist who makes time for potential emergencies. We think it’s crucial to your well-being.
Remember, an untreated dental emergency can compromise your oral and systemic health.
Types of Dental Emergencies
A dental emergency can mean anything from a tooth knocked out to a broken filling, but the most common emergencies that we encounter are:
- Jaw pain
- Jaw swelling
- Blister on the gum
In other words, oral infections and deep decay are typical.
Often, these symptoms mean a root infection that requires a gentle root canal or deep decay that can involve treatment or an extraction.
If you do need an extraction, we offer a variety of tooth replacement options to restore your smile.
Decreasing Risk Factors
It’s essential to visit your Pascoe Vale dentist regularly for dental exams and teeth cleans. It is also crucial to brush and floss daily at home.
If you grind and clench your teeth (bruxism), ask your dentist about a nightguard. If you play sports, always wear protective face gear to keep your teeth safe from stray balls.
