At Hyde Park Dental Care, we can care for you in an emergency dental situation.
Accidents happen, and at Hyde Park Dental Care we understand that you need a reliable dentist in your time of need! This is why we offer emergency dentistry to accommodate for emergencies when they happen.
We provide same-day emergency appointments to ensure you are seen as soon as possible, and if your emergency occurs outside practice hours call us and you will be directed to an after-hours number. Your dental health and comfort is our top priority and Dr Joffe and his experienced team will do everything they can to provide the highest level of care and exceed your expectations.
We aim to see you on the same day to ensure you are not in pain and feel comfortable, and if required we will book a time for further assessment.
What constitutes a dental emergency?
Emergency dental situations may include:
- A cracked tooth
- Injury to the soft tissue of your mouth (lips, gums etc.)
- An extruded tooth (pushed from position)
- Tooth loss
- Any pain associated with the mouth (and in conjunction with any of the listed)
- Dental pain that cannot be relieved with simple pain medication tablets
- Swelling of the mouth, cheeks or sides of the face
If you experience any of these emergency situations, it is important you book an appointment with a dental professional as soon as possible. We strongly recommend you do not ‘wait and see’ if your dental pain will go away on its own as this can allow the problem to worsen, any issues will become more problematic and complex to solve and makes it more difficult to book an emergency appointment.
Emergency treatment is available BY APPOINTMENT ONLY so be sure to call us to secure an appointment as soon as possible.
Tooth loss is one of the most common dental emergencies.
If your tooth is knocked out, it is important that you see a dental professional within half an hour. This could mean the difference between saving your tooth and losing your natural tooth forever. Pick your tooth up by the crown (not the root) and gently rinse in water or milk. The tooth should then be transported in the cheek of the patient, or alternatively in a glass of milk with the patient to the dentist.
