Dental Emergency in Modbury, SA

Man holding jaw from pain | emergency dentistWe understand how dental emergencies can interrupt your schedule and disrupt your sleep. In our dental clinic, we have long offered dental emergency treatment because we do not like to see anyone in pain, unable to keep schedules or sleep easy.

If you suspect a dental emergency—in yourself or a loved one—we anticipate your call. A member of our compassionate dental team can talk you through the situation and schedule an emergency dental appointment in Modbury, SA, if needed.

Common Dental Emergencies

At Plaza Dental Care, your emergency dentist sees all sorts of dental emergencies. However, the most common include:

  • Lost or broken tooth
  • Lost or broken restoration
  • Toothache or extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw ache
  • Jaw swelling
  • Face swelling
  • Bump on the gum
  • Mouth injury

In some cases, a minor chip or loose restoration may not constitute a dental emergency, especially when you do not have pain. However, we recommend contacting a member of our dental team regardless. Even if it is not a dental emergency, it would be our goal to treat before the minor issue becomes a painful situation for you.

Of course, full-body trauma means you should go directly to the hospital and contact our dental clinic after you are deemed safe by medical professionals.

Your Emergency Dental Appointment

Your emergency dentist in Modbury wants to ease your pain and treat your emergency as soon as possible. When you arrive, we will assess your situation further and then set to work reducing your pain. Your dentist then begins treatment.

Treatment can be palliative or complete depending on the nature of your dental emergency. A lost filling, for example, may be treated immediately, but root canal therapy may require two or more visits. However, we will make strides to relieve your pain, no matter the recommended treatment plan.

Following your emergency dental appointment, a member of our team or your dentist provides aftercare instructions to help promote any healing.  

Lowering Your Risks

Of course, it is crucial to brush and floss your teeth daily between dental exams and professional cleans as well.

We also recommend wearing the proper face gear or mouthguard when playing on a sports team and wearing your nightguard if you have been diagnosed with bruxism (grinding and clenching).

Bruxism can lead to cracks in your teeth and worn enamel, which may mean future tooth fractures, cavities and infections.
