Emergency Dentist at Burleigh Heads

Woman with tooth painA dental emergency can occur at any time of the day or night. When you have a dental emergency, we have you covered. Burleigh Heads Dentist Dr Alex Banic can promptly address common issues such as a broken crown or veneer, a chipped or knocked-out tooth or a severe toothache and more.

If you’d like immediate attention during our office hours, we reserve some same-day times for emergency appointments. Please call as early as possible in the morning to see if we can see you that day. If you’ve experienced a trauma after hours, you can call and speak with Dr Banic to get advice on how best to proceed.

How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Until you can get into the office to see us, here are some tips for addressing some of the most common dental emergencies.

A Knocked-Out Tooth

This common dental emergency often happens as the result of a sports-related trauma or another type of impact.

  • If the tooth is clean, place it back in the socket. Handle the tooth by its upper end (the crown) not by the root.
  • If the tooth is dirty rinse it in milk or gently suck it clean before placing it back in the socket.
  • If the tooth can’t be replaced, envelop it in plastic wrap or store it in a small container of milk, and bring it into the office.

A Toothache

Anyone who experiences a throbbing toothache wants relief fast. Until you can get into the practice for an appointment, you can find relief by applying a cold compress to the cheek outside the affected area, rinsing your mouth with salt water and taking over-the-counter pain relievers.

If you believe you have a dental emergency, don’t delay seeking care. Addressing the emergency when it’s a smaller problem can prevent more serious and costly procedures down the road.
