Different Types of Dental Emergencies

Toothache – This is a common symptom for most dental problems. It could be an indication of underlying serious dental conditions. Seek dental treatment as soon as possible

Swelling of the face – Swelling of the face could point to conditions such as tooth infection, or gum disease. Infection of the gums or teeth can cause abscesses, and can affect surrounding teeth and tissues. Facial swelling is serious and should not be ignored, please seek dental/medical treatment as soon as possible.

Chipped or broken teeth Biting something hard or accidental trauma can result in teeth which are chipped or broken. Broken teeth can be sensitive, rough and annoying. Seek treatment as soon as possible.

Damage/injury to tissue – Wounds to the oral region, bruises to the lips or cheeks or tongue are also considered to be dental emergencies. Seek dental advice if warranted.

Problems with temporary teeth restorations – losing teeth filling or dental crowns may not cause severe damage, but it is important enough to warrant immediate dental attention.

Broken braces or wires – broken wires can cause damage to the gums, tongue or cheeks.
Cover the sharp wire if you can with some ortho wax, and see your orthodontist ASAP.

Very friendly staff and I found that the lady dental nurse I had was very thorough and gentle when I had to go in for a filling when I broke one of my back teeth while in hospital at Epworth Camberwell just down the road from this clinic, she also advised me to have a check up again soon which I plan on but she made me very comfortable at a time I was not looking forward to and I have never been here before I would have no hesitation in recommending this dentist to anyone wondering if they should visit here!

Just had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr Cynthia Ma and would strongly recommend her services. I found that she was professional, gentle and caring. Her skills are top notch and she spends time explaining the procedure, creating a stress free experience. The team at Tendler Dental are great too, making the whole process smooth. Would recommend!

I have recommended Sam to family & friends who have also had a positive experience. I have found both the dental and support staff at Tendler efficient, professional and friendly. They have often gone to great lengths to provide emergency appointments and follow-up when needed for myself and my family. I highly recommend Dr Sam Lawrence and the skilled team at Tendler Dental.
