Emergency dental services
Toothache: Toothaches are common and can be caused by a variety of factors such as tooth decay, gum disease, or tooth damage. Regardless of the cause, toothaches can be incredibly painful and require immediate attention.
Broken or chipped tooth: If you’ve chipped or broken a tooth, it’s important to get treatment as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the damage, our dentist may recommend a filling, crown, or dental implant to restore the tooth.
Lost filling or crown: If a filling or crown falls out, it’s important to seek treatment right away to avoid further damage to the tooth. Dr Moodley can quickly replace lost fillings or crowns to prevent additional complications.
Knocked-out tooth: If a tooth has been knocked out due to injury or trauma, it’s important to act quickly. If the tooth can be found, rinse it with water and place it in a container of milk and bring it with you to our office.
Abscessed tooth: An abscessed tooth is an infection in the tooth that can be incredibly painful. It’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of your body.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, it’s important to stay calm and take the appropriate steps to manage the situation until you can see a dentist. Here are some tips to help you manage a dental emergency:
Toothache: If you have a toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water and use dental floss to remove any food particles that may be causing the pain. You can also take an over-the-counter pain reliever to help manage the discomfort.
Broken or chipped tooth: If you’ve chipped or broken a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and use a cold compress to reduce swelling. If you’re in pain, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever.
Lost filling or crown: If a filling or crown falls out, you can use dental cement or sugar-free gum to temporarily fill the cavity until you can see a dentist.
Knocked-out tooth: If a tooth has been knocked out, it’s important to act quickly. If the tooth can be found, rinse it with water and place it in a container of milk and bring it with you when you come see us.
Abscessed tooth: If you have an abscessed tooth, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and take an over-the-counter pain reliever to manage the discomfort.
