At Alphington Dental Care we cater to a wide range of dental emergencies including:
- Broken teeth and fillings
- Sensitive and painful teeth and gums
- Infections, abscessed teeth and facial swellings
- Broken dentures
We understand that dental emergencies can be a painful and stressful experience. As healthcare providers, we take our responsibility to do everything possible to relieve you of your pain as a priority.
Appointments are reserved for patients requiring emergency treatment so that we can provide you with an opportunity to receive care as soon as possible. Often, prompt management of a dental emergency allows for the best possible long-term outcome for the damaged teeth.
Infections involving the mouth and jaws can be potentially life threatening if left untreated. Infection that spreads beyond the tooth and causes swelling can quickly compromise breathing. If you develop swelling on your face/neck, or if you begin to feel feverish and unwell you should contact our clinic immediately.
If this develops after hours you should go to your nearest hospital emergency department.
