Emergency

Dental emergencies

Dental emergencies come unannounced and most often you are not sure where to go. Call Keysborough Dental Surgery on 03 9798 6666 if you seek emergency dental treatment. A dental emergency could be:

  • facial swelling
  • bleeding (trauma affecting your mouth)
  • an accident involving damage to your mouth or teeth.
  • dental pain (e.g. in tooth, mouth, gum, jaw)
  • broken or knocked out teeth

Unsure if a dental problem is an emergency? Don’t take a chance. Call us to speak to our dentist who will give you advice on the next steps. This is because even injuries that seem small or superficial can affect the living tissues inside the teeth. Listed below are common dental emergencies.

Facial swellings

Facial swellings can happen for a variety of reasons like poor nutrition, side effects of medication, gingivitis, but if it is accompanied by pain, it certainly seeks urgent dental care. Abscesses, the formation of pockets of pus due to bacterial growth, followed by swelling and bleeding is one of the common reasons to seek emergency dental help.

Bleeding or accident involving damage to your mouth or teeth

If your family member has come across bleeding or accident involving damage to your teeth or mouth, rinse their mouth with warm water to keep the area clean and apply cold compresses on your face to reduce swelling. Call Keysborough Dental Surgery for emergency help on 03 9798 6666.

Knocked-out Teeth

Knocked out teeth can be due to accidently falling, tripping or bumping against a hard surface. A commonly occurring dental emergency situation, call Keysborough Dental Surgery on 03 9798 6666 to seek emergency advice.

Bitten Tongue or Lip

If you are stuck in a dental emergency involving a bitten tongue or lip, gently clean the mouth with a cloth applying cold compresses to reduce swelling. Call Keysborough dental on 03 9798 6666 to seek emergency advice.
