Emergency Dentist in Sydney
What is a dental emergency?
Broken or chipped teeth
Trauma or accident can lead to broken teeth and intense dental pain. The patient needs to visit an emergency dentist in Sydney urgently to relieve pain and replace the tooth.
Severe toothache for any reason
Dental abscesses, exposed dental nerves, and dislodged fillings and crowns can cause severe tooth pain that requires emergency dental treatment by a qualified dentist.
Inflammation of gum tissue
A bacterial infection that reaches the gum tissue can damage gum tissue around the tooth and the jawbone itself. It is important to arrest the infection before it causes great damage.
Why is good oral health important?
Dental health is an integral part of your overall health and appearance. A smile showing white, even teeth gives the appearance of youth and good health.
Good oral health ensures your mouth is clean, and bacteria don’t have a chance to travel to your respiratory or digestive systems or even enter your bloodstream through microscopic cuts in your mouth.
Oral health is also a window to your general health. A dentist can refer you for further investigation to specialists if he notices changes in your mouth that could be symptoms of other diseases.
Home remedies for toothaches
Toothaches need to be investigated by an emergency dentist immediately, but you can try to alleviate discomfort with home remedies until your dental care appointment.
Clove oil is a natural anaesthetic, making it an effective emergency treatment for toothaches. Salt water has antibacterial properties that help in killing bacteria present in the mouth while removing any debris that may be aggravating the pain.
An ice pack may be an effective pain reliever as it constricts blood vessels where it is applied, numbing pain and reducing inflammation. Over-the-counter painkillers are effective as an emergency treatment for toothaches.
Causes of dental decay
Foods high in sugar tend to stick to the surface of your teeth, encouraging the growth of decay-causing bacteria.
Certain prescription medicines can harm your teeth. Antihistamines, anti-hypertensives and anti-depressants can all cause dental decay. If you take them, please make sure your dentist knows about it.
Sometimes, simply brushing your teeth may not clean them well. The bacteria that stays behind on your teeth can eat away at your tooth’s surface, damaging the enamel and gums.
GERD is a major cause of dental decay as it is very strong and, if not treated, causes immense dental damage that needs major dental work to fix.
