Emergency DENTAL Treatment for Dental INJURIES (Trauma)
Accidents are inevitable in sports and day-to-day life. In most cases of dental trauma, time is of the essence. Contact us and we will arrange an appointment with our emergency dentist.
Dental traumas are generally the result of blunt force trauma to the face, jaw, or head. They can range sustainably from minor soft tissue trauma to a completely knocked-out tooth and can necessitate multiple treatments.
In all cases, it is best to attend emergency dental care as soon as possible to assist in avoiding any potential further damage or additional problems, such as bacterial infection (dental abscesses) or acute pain.
If the trauma appears to be isolated to a dental injury contact us straight away. If you are unsure of the extent of the injury and suspect it involves more than a dental emergency, please contact the hospital or triple zero first to ensure you do not require any other immediate care.
In the event of a knocked-out tooth contact our emergency dentist immediately and we will arrange urgent dental care as soon as possible. If the knocked out tooth is intact do not scrub the knocked out tooth or handle the tooth root. Attempt to pick up the tooth by the crown then it is best to place the tooth in milk. Our Brisbane dentist will assess the situation and if possible attempt to re-insert the tooth in the tooth socket.
At Skygate Dental our Dentists will be able to assist and remedy your emergency dental needs and help go through the options available options in the hopes of saving the tooth.

Our emergency dentist will first assess the cause of the broken tooth prior to providing dental treatment. We will be able to provide options and specific costs involved to repair the tooth and aim to prevent future problems.

Treatment options will be presented and can be carried out in the same appointment. Treatments for chipped and broken teeth will range from simple fillings, to root canal therapy, to extractions. Our dentists will attempt to save the tooth and or teeth and assist in pain management.
WISDOM TEETH (THIRD molars)
Wisdom teeth can often times lead to emergency treatment. For many people, there is not enough room for wisdom teeth to properly fit in the mouth. They often come in at a problematic angle (impacted wisdom tooth) leading to a number of potential problems including gum disease, dental abscess (infection), bone loss, and other dental problems.
One of the more common problems associated with wisdom teeth is an infection (Tooth abscess). Often times infections can cause rapid onset tooth pain requiring emergency dental treatment.
There are a number of signs that can present themselves at the onset of an infection. The most common include aching teeth, swollen gums, bad taste (often sour or metallic in nature) in the mouth, and facial swelling. It is best to consult a dental professional as soon as possible if you believe you have an infection and arrange urgent dental care.
While seeking out emergency dental treatment there are a few things you can do to assist in alleviating the pain in the jaw (or teeth) until you can be seen. To begin, gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water (not hot), followed by a cold compress. Take a clean cloth and wrap it around an ice pack (or ice in a zip bag). Apply firm but gentle pressure to the jaw for 10 minutes at a time, allowing a 5-minute break between applications. Additionally, you can take over-the-counter pain medication to provide some pain relief.
A dental abscess originating from a tooth will require dental treatment to resolve. Oral antibiotics will typically assist in relieving some pressure and pain, but will not remove the source of the infection. Typically, the solution is wisdom tooth removal (tooth extraction) after which, the dentist will assess and may prescribe antibiotics to ensure the infection is resolved.
Our dentists will discuss all dental treatment and any antibiotics will you prior to commencement of any treatment or prescription.
Infections when left untreated can cause numerous dental-related issues. If you believe you have an infection contact us straight away.
If you have a dental emergency you believe is related to wisdom teeth please contact our dental clinic immediately and we will arrange emergency treatment.
