At Alphington Dental Care we cater to a 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 painful and stressful. We will do everything possible to relive you of your pain. Appointments are reserved for patients requiring emergency treatment so that we can provide every opportunity possible to treat your emergency as soon as possible. In many cases when dental emergencies are treated immediately there is a better chance of improving the long-term outcomes for damaged teeth.
Infections involving the mouth and jaws can be potentially life threatening if left untreated. Infections that spread beyond the tooth and into the surrounding tissues can cause swelling around the airways, which can compromise breathing. If you develop swelling on your face/neck or you feel feverish and unwell you should contact our clinic immediately. If after hours you should go to your nearest hospital emergency.
