The Importance of Cosmetic Dentistry
Wether the tooth or teeth have been knocked out, have become displaced (moved forward or backward or have been pushed in) or have been chipped, there is a risk of permanent damage. Nerves may be exposed and aesthetics may be compromised. As such we may need to see you to reduce sensitivity, minimise or stop bacteria infecting your nerves and restore aesthetics.
What are my treatment options for broken, cracked or dislodged teeth?
The general treatment options available for broken, damaged or cracked teeth are:
- Porcelain Crowns or Veneers
- Temporary braces or brackets
- Teeth Whitening
- Removal of the teeth or Extractions
- Gum Treatment or Periodontal Treatment
We will discuss your dental history and then have a consultation with you to discuss possible treatment options. X-rays or other tests to your mouth, gums or jaw may need to be performed. Don’t hesitate to contact us at anytime to discuss your emergency.
Emergency Dental Care Tips for Dislodged Teeth, Tooth Knocked Out
1. Gently sit the tooth back in socket it has come out from, do not push it in with force, to avoid touching the root. 2. Alternatively place it between the cheek and teeth, away from the affected area, to keep it warm and moist. 3. You can also place it in a container of milk until you see us. (Note: Avoid touching the socket with your tongue)
