Tooth Fracture in Melbourne
A tooth fracture is the most common issue that unanimously calls for emergency dentistry. There are a number of ways through which teeth can get fractured. From falling off from a bike or skateboard to receiving facial trauma through a contact sport such as cricket or basketball, a tooth fracture can occur at any moment. Even a faulty root canal treatment or filling can lead to the same.
These fractures happen on both the outside and inside of the tooth and can cause severe pain.
To ensure quality dental services that betters your life!
At Melbourne Dental Family Care Melbourne, we perform all-round check-ups to analyse the risks of developing any dental problems that can hamper oral hygiene and health.
If you have suffered from a tooth fracture, get in touch with our emergency dentists immediately and follow these instructions:
- Rinse your mouth with lukewarm water thoroughly.
- Apply cold compression on the outside of the cheek where the fracture has occurred to reduce swelling.
- Take an anti-inflammatory painkiller such as acetaminophen.
- Ensure that you do not apply an external painkiller on the gums.
Depending on whether the pulp is damaged or not, we conduct a root canal treatment (for damage) or put on a dental crown (for no damage). We ensure that our emergency dentist attends to a tooth fracture as soon as possible. Under the rare situation where the fractured tooth cannot be replaced, we accordingly set a dental bridge and implant.
