What is the Need for a 24 Hour Dentist in Sydney when you have Broken, Chipped or Cracked Tooth?

The need for a 24 hour dentist could occur at any hour of the day and the crack of dawn or late at night is no exception.

Normally a dental facility is closed at these hours, but an emergency dentist such as the one in Smile Concepts will always be available for patients all day, every day.

Typical emergency situations usually involve:
  • Emergency dental need due to a broken, chipped or cracked tooth
This needs to be treated straight away with antibiotics and pain relief as above, and then the wisdom teeth have to be PLANNED TO BE REMOVED.

They are not like normal teeth and cannot be removed on the day that you have the infection.

Removal of wisdom teeth has to be planned.

Therefore be patient. After three days of antibiotics and painkillers, the pain will go away.

You need to see us to get your teeth planned to be removed by our specialists.
  • Emergency dental need due to front tooth has come out after an accident
If it is your child and is less than 6 years of age, please go straight to either Westmead Children’s Hospital or Children’s Hospital in Randwick.

If above 6 years of age or an adult call our after hours dentist immediately.

We will attempt to save the tooth.
  • Emergency dental need due to severe infection
1. Take nurofen 400mgs every 4 hours for the first 2 days. You also need antibiotics. If painin not relieved then change to 2 nurofen first, then 2 panadols after 2 hours and then 2 hours later 2 nurofen and repeat for next 48 hours. Please call our after hours dentist for more advice.

2. You will need the tooth treated with root canal treatment or have to take the tooth out based on the severity of the infection.

What other problems can be seen by an after hours dentist in Sydney?

There are several problems that should be addressed by an after hours dentist as soon as they show.

Below is a list of several of the problems that an emergency dentist can treat.
  • Loose teeth due to gum disease
Gum disease typically starts off as a mild type known as gingivitis.

Gingivitis does not cause pain, so it is quite difficult to realise you even have a problem.

However, sure signs of it are swollen and inflamed gums, which are easily noticeable upon inspection.

The second type of gum disease is known as periodontitis. When it reaches this stage many severe problems could develop such as decaying teeth and chronic tooth pain.

If you feel any sort of toothache, contact a 24 hour emergency dentist immediately in order to prevent further problems from developing.
  • Missing Teeth
Recklessness may be fun, but if you get your teeth knocked out you may change your mind.

When a tooth falls out it can be reattached by an emergency dentist if you get to one soon enough.

Avoid making contact with the roots of the tooth and transport it in a glass of milk.

If severe damage has been done to the gums then it may be impossible, so dental implants would be an option if this were the case.

As mentioned above contact our emergency dentist in Sydney immediately.
  • Chronic Tooth Pain
There are several reasons for chronic tooth pain to occur, though regardless of the cause the fact of the matter is that you need to get to an after hours dentist.

As mentioned above, gum disease may be the reason for this pain which could lead to all sorts of irreversible complications if not taken care of as soon as possible.

Weakened fillings are another common cause for tooth pain.

When teeth caps, crowns, or fillings become worn out, there is a chance that they will dislodge.

In the case of a filling, the pain can be especially unbearable. If this occurs then you’ll need to get to a 24 hour dentist to get them replaced.

Be sure to get any crowns, caps, implants, fillings, and bridges checked often to prevent the need for an after hours dentist.

Take the Step.
