What is a dental emergency?

At AMK Dental Clinic we believe a dental emergency is the experience of pain in the mouth or jaws that will not go away with the help of pain medication. Simply said if it hurts – it’s an emergency! Please do not delay in seeking help as leaving it to ‘see how it goes’ can only make the issue worse. If you experience the following in with or without dental pain, please visit or call us as soon as possible:

 

Don’t delay! You need to seek help straight away…

As with any other emergency, waiting to seek help can cause you further complications. It is always important to see a dental professional as soon as possible. Getting to the dentist as soon as possible means you can receive the best treatment. Unlike many other dental clinics, at AMK Dental Clinic we have flexible appointment hours and strive to accommodate your needs, especially in an emergency.
 
There are a number of accidents that can happen: temporary crowns can fall off, you might wake up with swollen and incredibly painful gums. There are in fact many things that can happen. That is why it is so important to look after the health of your teeth. Although, no matter how well you look after your teeth, accidents do happen, and whatever your dental emergency is, at AMK Dental Clinic we will do our best to help you get the treatment you need.

 

If your tooth has been knocked out from trauma…
 

If the reason for your emergency is that your tooth has been broken or knocked out from a traumatic incident, it is important that you see a dental professional within 30 minutes - this can mean the difference between loosing and saving your tooth!

Be sure to handle the tooth at the crown. Because if you as touching the tooth at the root you can damage it. The best thing to do is store your tooth in a container with milk and bring it with you - do not wash or scrub the tooth as it will cause further damage.
