Emergency Dentistry at
Wilton Dental & Cosmetics

Woman with mouth painHas a throbbing toothache been keeping you up at night? Or perhaps you chipped or broke your tooth while playing sports. It’s essential that you don’t ignore these and other types of dental emergencies as you could jeopardise your oral health.

At Wilton Dental & Cosmetics we will attend to your dental emergency promptly (the same day) and provide pain-free, stress-free dental care.

What is considered a dental emergency?

Some common emergency dental situations include:

  • A damaged restoration, such as a crown, bridge or filling
  • Cracked, broken or chipped teeth
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • Toothaches

Not sure if your case qualifies as a dental emergency? That’s okay; our friendly team will discuss it with you and assess your needs.

How should I care for my tooth until I can see the dentist?

If you have a knocked-out tooth, Dentist Dr Khurram Usman advises patients with a knocked-out tooth to avoid handling it. If possible, place the tooth back in the socket but take care not to swallow it. If the tooth doesn’t stay in place, put it in a container of milk or your saliva. If your mouth is bleeding, apply a wet, cold compress to the tooth socket.

Are there any ways to prevent dental emergencies?

While it may not be possible to avoid all dental emergencies, there are some things you can do to decrease the chance that you will experience one. These include wearing a mouth guard during sport, avoiding chewing on hard substances such as ice or hard candy that can crack teeth and never using teeth to cut anything.

Will X-rays be needed?

Sometimes but not always. When X-rays are required, we use low-radiation ones. They give your dentist a clearer picture of your mouth to ensure that we catch any problems. We will proceed with treatment as quickly as possible to get you out of pain and back to your day.
