Emergency Dentistry

Looking for an emergency dentist in Tarneit?

Emergency situations take place when least expected and often disrupt regular routines. This can make it difficult to know what to do in a crisis situation. We understand that dental emergencies are stressful, so at Oral Square Dental Care, we do everything we can to make sure you feel comfortable and calm throughout the process.

Although most dental problems are resolved at scheduled dental appointments at your dentist’s office, there are times when dental emergencies happen outside of normal office hours. Oral Square Dental Care understands that emergency dental care is a high priority and should be treated as such.

Oral Square Dental Care provides after-hours emergency dental services. Call (03) 8368 2117.

Handling Dental Emergencies

When a dental emergency occurs, it’s best to seek out treatment as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage or costly future repairs. Oral Square Dental Care triage and allocates dedicated time each day with emergency dentistry for patients who need immediate treatment.

For example, a dentist may be able to secure a knocked-out tooth back in place if it happens soon after the injury. If not, a restoration such as a dental bridge or dental implant may be necessary.

Our goal is to get you out of pain as quickly as possible, whether it be a toothache, a chipped tooth, or trauma that has impacted the integrity of your teeth. Our dentist will assess your condition to determine whether you need immediate treatment or if a follow-up appointment can be arranged.

We provide emergency dentistry services for all ages and stages of life, from children to seniors.

What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether a dental issue requires emergency treatment. In most cases, significant bleeding, saving a tooth, or severe pain are considered dental emergencies. (Over-the-counter pain medication typically does not help in these extreme circumstances.)

You should also seek emergency treatment if you have an abscess, which is a painful infection that can spread to other parts of your body. If you don’t get treatment for an abscess, it can lead to septicemia (blood poisoning) or even death.

Common dental emergencies that could be looked at by a dental professional right away include:

  • Knocked out teeth
  • Chipped, fractured, or cracked teeth
  • Severe infections or abscesses
  • Wounds or lacerations to the soft tissue
  • Continuous bleeding or bleeding gums
  • Injuries or trauma to the face or mouth
  • Swelling or bulges in the gums
  • Jaw pain or bruxism
  • Broken orthodontic braces or wires
  • Relentless toothache

Regular dental checkups will work towards preventable dental emergencies by catching issues before they become serious. A dental checkup can also help you spot problems such as cavities and gum disease early on so that they can be treated before they cause any further damage or pain.

For an emergency dental appointment please contact Oral Square Dental Care’s Tarneit dental clinic. Our dentist will be able to assess your situation and help you find a suitable solution.
