Broken tooth


A broken tooth subsequent to trauma is a frequent dental emergency. Do not panic if your tooth is cracked or if you lose part of your tooth or filling. By acting quickly your chances of the dentist being able to fix your tooth are very high .

Call and book an emergency appointment with us immediately, to fix your tooth. Treatment will depend on the which parts of the tooth have been cracked, chipped or broken.

  • If only the dental nerve is not damaged, we can restore the tooth using a filling .
  • If the dental nerve or pulp is exposed, you will need a root canal treatment to avoid infection .
  • If the root is damaged then the tooth need to be replaced by a bridge or an implant.


Intense pain


If you are experiencing intense pain in one of your teeth you should quickly book an appointment with your dentist. Intense pain is often caused by a deep carious lesion that has reached the dental pulp. The dental pulp is the internal portion of teeth that contains nerves and blood vessels. Bacteria from the cavity can infect the pulp and cause an infection.

If left without treatment, the infection will progress and create an abcess.

Dental abcess symptoms include :

  • Severe and constant pain, often increasing in intensity whilst chewing;
  • Redness in area of the gum where the abcess is located;
  • A swollen cheek or jaw;
  • Pus draining into the mouth, leaving a bitter taste in the mouth;
  • The infection can also cause a fever, nausea and fatigue.

A dental abcess may not necessarily cause all these symptoms at once. If you are experiencing any of theses symptoms call your dentist immediately.


Avulsed tooth


Although rare, an adult tooth may be knocked completely out of its socket, a portion of the alveolar bone to which the root of a tooth is attached.

If this happens to you, call your dentist who will guide you and tell you how to reposition your tooth back in its socket. You must see your dentist within the hour if you wish for the tooth to heal in its correct position with the least amount of complications.

Whatever your dental emergency might be, trust our team to provide you with the care you need in a timely manner. Our emergency services are provided on Monday to Friday, to assure your well being at all times and that you keep smiling.
