Refine Dental is Bowen Hill’s leading Emergency Dental provider. Typical emergency situations usually involve:
Cracked/ Broken Teeth
Some teeth can become cracked or broken as a result of tooth decay, broken fillings, eating hard foods and clenching/grinding. By treating this early, this can result in the best prognosis for the tooth as cracks can cause severe fractures there.
Unfortunately, if your tooth has split in half, it will likely require extraction.
A toothache can arise due to dental decay, post-trauma, or infection. A lot of time the nerve of the tooth has been irritated to cause you pain.
Our dentist may perform some diagnostic tests to identify the source of your pain and treat it accordingly.
Sometimes an infected tooth could result in facial swelling. If left untreated, this can be a severe emergency. Most commonly, this is treated with either a root canal therapy or an extraction but may require a visit to the emergency room.
Your dentist at Refine Dental will treat you and recommend the best option to get you out of pain.
ACUTE GUM INFECTION
Untreated periodontal disease can lead to an infection of the gums. Sometimes this can cause facial swellings and extreme pain.
Your dentist will advise you on your best treatment options whether that involves a deep clean or extraction of your tooth.
