There are many types of dental emergencies—everything from a toothache to a soft tissue injury. Fortunately, your emergency dentist in Avondale, Auckland is here to help restore your oral health.
Most people complain that dental emergencies—usually toothaches—occur at the worst possible time: before an event, on the eve of a vacation. At Avondale Dental Centre, we work hard to treat your dental emergency immediately so that you can relish your time without worry. It is always our goal that patients enjoy a comfortable and anxiety-free smile.
Dental Emergency Types
While there are all sorts of dental emergencies, we frequently see toothaches, jaw pain and jaw swelling—all signs of deep decay or infection.
Other types of dental emergencies include:
- Broken tooth or restoration
- Knocked-out tooth or restoration
- Soft tissue injury
- Object stuck between teeth
There are other dental emergencies still—too many to name. So, if ever you’re unsure, we welcome your call. We can sort out the situation and decide on your care.
If you’ve suffered an injury, we also encourage you to visit the hospital first. You can contact our dental clinic from there after you’ve been stabilised. We always want you to be safe.
Protecting Your Oral Health
In many cases, dental emergencies are preventable.
The first step, when it comes to protecting your oral health, is routine dental care and professional teeth cleans. You’ll want to combine these steps with regular brushing and flossing sessions at home. Your dentist can provide tips to help you optimise your regimen.
You should also wear a mouthguard if you play sports and a nightguard if you grind and clench your teeth (bruxism). The latter may lead to cavities, infections and the loss of your adult teeth through fractures.
