What Does An Emergency Dentist Perth Do?

From severe toothaches, abscesses, and infections to broken or chipped teeth, lost fillings or crowns, dental trauma, and denture repairs or replacements – Belmont Dental Surgery addresses a wide range of dental emergencies promptly and effectively.

Emergency dentists in Perth, Australia, play a crucial role in providing immediate dental care for individuals experiencing severe oral pain, trauma, or sudden dental issues that can’t wait for a regular appointment. Their services encompass a wide range of procedures, catering to diverse emergencies.

Alleviating Pain

  • Treating severe toothaches: Emergency dentists can diagnose the cause of the pain, whether it’s a cavity, abscess, or nerve inflammation, and provide immediate pain relief through medication, temporary dental fillings, or extraction if necessary.
  • Managing gum infections: Gum abscesses or severe inflammation can cause excruciating pain and require prompt intervention. Emergency dentists can provide antibiotics, drainage procedures, and other treatments to address the infection and reduce discomfort.

Addressing Dental Trauma

  • Repairing chipped or broken teeth: Emergency dentists can restore chipped or broken teeth using bonding material or temporary crowns, minimising further damage and preserving aesthetics.
  • Reimplanting avulsed teeth: In case of a knocked-out tooth, emergency dentists can attempt reimplantation if done within a specific timeframe. This involves carefully placing the tooth back in its socket and stabilising it with splinting.

Handling Urgent Prosthetic Issues

  • Fixing broken dentures: Cracked, broken, or dislodged dentures can be uncomfortable and impact daily activities. Emergency dentists can reline or repair dentures to restore their functionality and fit.
  • Addressing denture-related pain or sores: Ill-fitting dentures can cause irritation and sores in the mouth. Emergency dentists can adjust the dentures or recommend temporary solutions to improve comfort.

Pain Management

Rest assured, pain relief is our priority. We offer various pain management options, including local anaesthesia and sedation, to ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible.

Urgent Surgery

In some cases, immediate surgery might be necessary. Our process is seamless, and if needed, we collaborate with specialists to ensure you receive the best and most efficient care.

Belmont Dental Surgery is committed to not only addressing your dental needs promptly but also ensuring your overall comfort and well-being. Our friendly and reassuring approach sets us apart in providing the care you deserve.

How Do I Avoid Dental Emergencies?

  1. Maintain good oral hygiene: Brush your teeth twice daily, floss regularly, and use mouthwash to keep your mouth clean and free of bacteria.
  2. Schedule regular dental check-ups: This allows your dentist to identify and address potential problems early on – before they become emergencies.
  3. Wear a mouthguard during contact sports or activities: This can help protect your teeth from injury.
  4. Avoid using your teeth as tools: This can lead to cracks, chips, or even fractures.
