Frequently Asked Questions
First of all – do not delay! Receiving dental care as soon as possible can mean the difference between retaining and losing your tooth!
As with any other emergency, delaying in getting help can cause further complications. It is always important to seek help as soon as possible so you can receive the best possible outcome.
If your tooth has been broken or knocked out from a traumatic incident, be sure to handle the tooth at the crown as touching the root can damage it. Store the tooth in a container with milk and bring it with you when you attend the emergency appointment. Do not wash or scrub the tooth as it will get damaged.
If you are ashamed of your missing teeth there are several options you can choose from. Dental bridges and dental implants are the most popular, each with their own benefits. If you are unsure as to what treatment would best help you, speak to our dental professionals who will be able to recommend the correct treatment.
