Acacia Dental Group Provides an Emergency Dentist in Woden
Acacia Dental Group, a dental practice in Phillip, ACT, Australia, wants to point out that they can provide an emergency dentist in Woden, in case there are dental emergencies such as a cracked tooth due to an accident, a sudden severe toothache, swelling of the gums, uncontrollable gum bleeding, or losing a dental filling or dental implant. Traumas and injuries to mouth can result into teeth getting broken, cracked, or even knocked out. When this happens, there is a need for emergency dental care and patients are requested to immediately call them.
If it is ascertained to be a dental emergency, the patient will be taken care of by an emergency dentist within 24 hours. If the problem is not considered to be an emergency, an appointment will be provided. For those who are not sure whether it is a dental emergency or not, they can call the practice immediately to sort it out. And for those who have rapid serious bleeding or have difficulty breathing, it is recommended that they go immediately to A&E.
For those who have a dental emergency, they can immediately call the practice to book an appointment in the same way as their current patients. But they will make sure to prioritise the treatment of those who have a dental emergency. Upon arrival at the practice, they will do everything to keep the patient calm and they will ask questions to fully understand the immediate problem. They will also inquire about the patient’s oral health and medical history.
Dr. Sirisha Yalamanchili from Acacia Dental Group says, “The purpose of the emergency dental treatment is to stop the pain or bleeding as soon as possible. It is quite likely you will need to return to have the root cause of your problem examined and resolved during business hours. When you arrive at our practice, we’ll listen to your concerns about the issue at hand and will do everything we can to not only relieve any pain you are experiencing but to make sure the treatment suits your needs.”
They offer a number of suggestions on the steps that a patient can take until such time that they can get emergency dental care. For those who have a severe toothache, they can rise their mouth with warm water and then take an over-the-counter painkiller to minimize the pain while waiting for an emergency appointment. For those who have a cracked or broken tooth, they can rise their mouth with warm water and then apply a cold compress to the side of the face where the tooth is located. It is important not to touch the cracked tooth until professional help is provided. For those who have an object stuck between their teeth, they can try to remove the object gently with a pair of tweezers, or floss it out. If this is not effective, they can apply pressure gently to the area.
It a tooth has been knocked out, the patient can try to carefully put it back into its socket and apply gentle pressure. If this doesn’t work, they can keep the tooth clean and moist by putting it inside their cheek. They should refrain from touching the roots or the tooth socket while waiting for emergency dental care.
For those who are bleeding from the mouth, they can rinse their mouth with warm water and place cold compress on the area. They can apply gentle pressure to stop the bleeding before their appointment with the emergency dentist.
