Broken or chipped teeth

If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or injury, it is very important that you see a dentist as soon as possible. The same goes for any teeth that may have been knocked out. The sooner you are seen by a dentist the better the chances that the teeth can be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.

Here are some of the steps an emergency dental appointment will cover:
  1. A thorough examination of the injured area will be undertaken. This may include dental xrays to determine the extent of the damage.
  2. Depending on the severity of the pain, the area will be numbed with local anaesthetic.
  3. The injured area will be sterilised to reduce the risk of infection.
  4. The damaged teeth will be restored temporarily or permanently, depending on the case.
  5. In severe cases the affected tooth may require extraction and implant treatment will be discussed.
Broke or chipped teeth

If you require emergency dental treatment, you should ask to see a dentist as soon as possible. At our practice we offer appointments for all dental emergencies from toothache to lost or broken crowns, chipped teeth and fillings to abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth and facial swelling. We can take care of your injuries to ensure you heal quicker, helping to ensure that you avoid additional dental problems and complications in the future.

Benefits of Emergency Dental Care
  • Preservation of as much of the remaining tooth structure as possible.
  • Reduced risk of infection.
  • Improved long-term oral health overall.
Wisdom teeth and extractions

In cases of advanced gum disease and tooth decay, teeth may need to be extracted. Some patients may also develop impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause intense pain and need to be removed. This is alleviated by having them removed surgically.

One area in which it is possible for dentists to specialise is 'oral surgery', an umbrella term for all dental procedures involving surgery, such as the extraction of teeth or wisdom teeth. It is always important to get the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth. Never attempt to pull out your own tooth at home as this could cause a more serious problem for you.

Emergency Dental
Tooth extractions typically involve the following:
  1. Before the procedure you may require an x-ray of your teeth.
  2. Depending on your particular case and the severity of your problem, you may be given a local anaesthetic and offered sedation if you are anxious.
  3. Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment to extract teeth with the utmost care and your recovery can be surprisingly quick.
  4. In the case of wisdom tooth extractions, you may have some swelling after the procedure and discomfort that can be eased with over-the-counter painkillers.
  5. In cases of advanced gum disease or periodontitis, antibiotics will be prescribed to reduce the risk of further infection.
Benefit of Extractions & Oral Surgery
  • Reduced pain levels
  • Sustained good oral health
