What should I do in a dental emergency?

We recommend contacting your emergency dentist in Thornbury immediately if you have any oral health-related problems. Of course, not all dental issues are emergencies, but your dentist can help you determine if you need an emergency dental appointment or if you can arrange a regular appointment. 

A toothache, painful dental crown, chipped or broken tooth or dental abscess needs prompt care, and if left untreated, these issues can lead to more severe dental and general health concerns. 

However, before you reach out to our dental clinic, you can take the appropriate measures to prevent more damage, pain, bleeding or swelling. Also, acting quickly can mean the difference between saving a natural tooth and losing one. 

If you have an accident during which your tooth falls out, we recommend saving and preserving it by placing it in milk or a cup of your saliva, packing the socket and collecting and rinsing the broken or dislodged tooth.
