In most cases, it is recommended to visit an emergency dentist for dental emergencies rather than going to the emergency room. Dental professionals are specifically trained to handle dental issues and can provide the right kind of care suitable to whatever the situation may be. However, if you’re experiencing severe facial trauma or a life-threatening emergency, it is best to go to the emergency room or call emergency services.
During an emergency dentist appointment at Delacombe Family Dentist in Ballarat, our experienced team will promptly assess and address your dental emergency. Your appointment will typically involve a complete evaluation, discussion of treatment options, pain management to alleviate discomfort and immediate treatment for the emergency, followed by personalised planning for any necessary post-operative care. Our compassionate dentists will carefully listen to your dental concerns. From there, further recommendations will then be provided. These treatments may include tooth extraction, dental restoration, or root canal therapy.

Time is of the essence! If your tooth gets knocked out, it is crucial to act quickly.

  • Retrieving the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top part).
  • Rinse it gently with water and make sure to avoid touching the root.
  • If possible, try to place the tooth back into its socket and hold it in place.
  • If this is not possible, store the tooth in a clean container of milk and contact your emergency dentist immediately.
Don’t take the risk. Without proper treatment, the tooth becomes susceptible to infection which in turn leads to potential health complications and even tooth loss. Therefore, seeking emergency dental care as soon as possible is vital to prevent further damages and costly procedures.
