Why act now?

An emergency dental appointment in Mackay does more than provide you with pain relief. When you come see us we’ll also clean and sterilise the site of injury, which will reduce your chances of developing an infection. This is no small matter as dental infection can easily spread if left untreated. We will also set about repairing the damage, where possible, with a permanent fix straight away. If this is not possible, we’ll leave you with a temporary fix and schedule in another appointment for the permanent repairs. This may be the case, for example, if we need to remove a tooth. At your follow-up appointment we can discuss potential replacement options, such as dental implants.

Fixing the damage caused by your dental emergency means you can get back to enjoying eating, talking and laughing. What’s more, it isn’t just your dental health today that benefits; professional dental treatment ensures your future dental health is protected too. A case in point is tooth loss, left untreated it leads to jawbone deterioration, as well as the possibility of changes to your facial structure and ultimately more tooth loss.
