What to do in a dental emergency

Some of us are organised, efficient, and health and safety conscious. If you are one of these people, well, you’re less likely to find yourself in the position of a dental emergency in the first place. But should you take a knock to the teeth, you would probably know exactly what to do. You’d take a deep breath, count to three, and book an emergency dental appointment in Mackay.

Emergency Dental Appointment in MackayOthers may not be so calm. We often take our teeth for granted and can’t imagine the day where our teeth may fall out or chip. Like lots of things in life, you don’t know what you’ve got until it is gone.  Here at Walkerston Dental, we are here to be your first port of call and help you take the next steps to solving your dental emergency as fast and efficiently as we can.

First things first

If you’re prepared for the worst, you may already know what to do before coming to see us in Walkerston Dental in Walkerston GP SuperClinic, Queensland.

If you have a loose tooth, resist yanking it out and keep it in your mouth. If the tooth has already fallen out, keep it in saliva or milk, as opposed to water, to better preserve the tooth.

If you are not sure what to do, don’t worry. Give us a call and we can give you advice on what to do until we see you, if we need to see you at all. Either way, it doesn’t hurt to chat to us as each situation is unique.

Once you have rung up and filled us in on your dental accident or injury, we will try and book you an emergency dental appointment in Mackay to see you on the same day as the incident.

Arriving at the dentist

Once you are here, we will examine and sterilise the injured area. We will then restore the tooth or teeth. This may be a temporary or permanent fix. Whether it is a quick restoration of a chip or something more involved, your emergency dental appointment in Mackay will soon get your oral health back on track.
