WE HAVE YOU COVERED FOR EMERGENCY DENTAL TREATMENT AND OTHER SERVICES
At Myers Street Dental Clinic we offer an extended array of treatments, procedures and services making it a holistic centre for your dental health.
Emergency dental treatment
If you’ve been in a car accident, a sports accident or any other kind of physically traumatic event, you might have the immediate thought of “I need to see the doctor”. Depending on your injuries you might want to pay an emergency visit to your dentist, too.
What kinds of injuries would you need to see the dentist for? Here are some examples:
A cracked or broken tooth
Although teeth are strong, they can be cracked or broken by a piece of hard food or a blow to the face. A minor break or crack might not always cause pain, but the nerve inside of the tooth may still be damaged. You might feel extreme pain if the nerve is exposed to air, water or food.
Treatment of a cracked or broken tooth will vary depending on the injury, so if your tooth is broken, you should try to see a dentist immediately.
A knocked-out tooth
If your tooth has been knocked out, you’ll want to get in touch with a dentist immediately. Be careful not to swallow the tooth. Place the tooth back in its socket if you can, and use a piece of gauze or foil to hold it in place on your way to the dentist. If you can’t place the tooth in its socket, keep it in a container of milk or your own saliva for safety, and get to the dentist as quickly as you can.
Severe toothache or gum pain
If you have severe or ongoing tooth or gum pain, we can help. In some cases, people can go for months being unaware of a cavity or gingivitis, but in other cases, immediate care is needed. Treatment of severe tooth or gum pain depends on the source and the cause. Once we have identified the issue, we’ll to help you to determine the right course for care for you.
We also offer:
Treatment under nitrous oxide (happy gas)
Some patients may be anxious about dental treatment and may request administration of nitrous oxide to help them relax. It is safe for use in children and adults, with no adverse effects following the procedure. You simply breathe the gas in through a nosepiece throughout the procedure. At no point in time do you lose consciousness.
Treatment under general anaesthesia
Some young children or patients with special needs may not be able to safely have treatment done at the clinic under local anaesthesia. This could be due to anxiety or an inability to co-operate with the demands of the treatment.
Patients need to present for an examination and treatment planning first to work out what the scope of work involves. Then by special arrangement with a nearby facility and anaesthetist, the dentist and nurse will bring their instruments and equipment to perform the procedures while the patient is anesthetised.
