DO YOU NEED AN EMERGENCY DENTIST
Are You in Pain ?
Do you need to see an Emergency Dentist? Vermont South Dental can provide emergency dental treatment for you if you are in pain.
A toothache or pain can be caused by any of the following;
- Tooth Sensitivity
- Chipped, cracked, or broken tooth
- Knocked out tooth
- Wisdom tooth pain
- Facial pain
- Grinding Teeth
Without attention - this could develop into serious & sometimes costly problems.
If you are suffering from swelling, pain or discomfort around the tooth, gums or jaw - apply a cold compress and take a pain relief tablet until you can see one of our Dentists at Vermont South Dental.
Are you a New Patient?
If you have never been to Vermont South dental we can schedule an appointment to get you out of pain. Once your Emergency care has been completed, a comprehensive exam will be scheduled to determine if there are any other areas of concern.
This will ensure you wont have to go through that pain again.
If you have any further concerns that require treatment , you will be provided with all the necessary information, so that you can make an informed decision that is ideal for you.
NOT SO MUCH of an emergency?
Even if your situation is not an emergency, if you start to develop a toothache, please contact Vermont South dental to book in for a comprehensive exam or book an appointment online.
If you have unfortunately incurred a knocked out tooth, it is important for you to see a dentist as soon as possible, in order for you to get the best possible outcome. If it is more than half an hour before you can get to a dentist. Call our surgery or Dr Mark Oblak (afterhours) to get advice on how to care for the tooth until you can see a dentist. The most important thing is to ensure that you do not touch the root of the tooth.
Have a chipped, cracked or broken a tooth?
Cracked, broken or damaged teeth should be seen to immediately.
Any Delay in having your tooth seen to by an emergency dentist may cause structural damage. Similarly, delay in having a lost or damaged filling seen to can cause on-going nerve damage.
ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM FACIAL PAIN?
Facial pain can be a result of grinding your teeth. When you are tense, you tend to subconsciously clench. This can be the cause of facial pain and lead to wearing away enamelon yur teeth. This can result in leaving you with a sensitivity problem.
You may not even realise you’re grinding. Often people only do it while sleeping, but unexplained jaw pain or headaches in the morning could be a clue.
This complaint is called Bruxism. If you do grind your teeth, try changing your sleeping position and give us a call as it may benefit you to wear a mouth guard at night.
If you notice yourself clenching during the day, remind yourself to relax your jaw with your teeth slightly apart and rest your tongue just behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth.
