Unexpected presents aren’t the only surprises you might receive the coming Christmas and New Year’s period.

Another less-than-welcome surprise is the prospect of a dental emergency!

While you might have the next couple of weeks off, your teeth don’t.

They’ll be hard at work, chewing, gnashing and chomping away all throughout the coming holiday period.

Bite down too hard or failing to look after your teeth properly and you might find yourself suffering from:

Each of these situations can land you in a world of pain. Needless to say, they can put a dampener on your Christmas celebrations!

Luckily, you aren’t out of options – all you need to do is visit your local emergency dentist this Christmas.

 

Your emergency dentist is available throughout Christmas

Dental emergencies don’t clock off with the Christmas break and go on holiday for 2 weeks (as much as we wish they did!)

Tooth decay doesn’t wait for the New Year to build again.

Bleeding gums don’t magically heal themselves just because it’s Christmas.

It’s precisely because of problems like these that your emergency dentist is available throughout the coming Christmas and New Year’s period.

We know that dental pain is the last thing you want to sit through this Christmas – yes, even worse than the awkward company party or having to spend the day with your in-laws!

 

Don’t let dental emergencies ruin your Christmas

At Dental Care Group, our rule of thumb is “if it hurts, it’s an emergency.”

Some of the more common examples of what you might run into include…

Chipped or broken tooth

As mentioned earlier, the festive season is all about eating and drinking your body weight in delicious festive foods and drinks!

But chomping down on foods can lead to a painful chipped or broken tooth. So what do you do if you accidentally chip a tooth during a festive dinner party?

Call your emergency dentist, that’s what. Our principal dentist Dr Zelman Lew is ready to take your call throughout the entire holiday season, offering immediate support and advice.

We can even schedule you in for an emergency dental appointment, often on the very same day.

Loose or missing tooth

If by whatever circumstance you’ve suffered facial trauma and are suffering from a lost or missing tooth, you need an emergency dentist!

Not only is this painful, but it can also be incredibly uncomfortable, putting a real dampener on your Christmas festivities.

Call our emergency dentist immediately for instant advice and support: (03) 9509 1500.

Toothache

There are many possible reasons for your toothache.

The cause doesn’t matter – what does matter is whether or not your toothache will stop you enjoying your Christmas and New Year’s celebrations.

And if you’re suffering from a toothache, you can’t wait until the holiday period is over; you need support and advice from a local emergency dentist – now!

Need an Armadale dentist who’s open over Christmas?

If you’re thinking of gritting your teeth (both literally and figuratively!) and powering through your dental pain, think again.

In many cases, even minor pain is an indicator of a deeper problem.

Ignore it and you could end up with pain that’s significantly worse once the holidays are over!

Here’s an example: let’s say you’ve fallen and chipped one of your teeth.

The insides of a tooth are sensitive. More importantly, they’re also sensitive to infection – bacteria can get into your teeth and wreak havoc with the dentin and pulp inside.

Tooth infections can go even further than the tooth itself – it’s not uncommon for serious infections to reach surrounding gums and for abscesses (pockets of pus) to start forming.

This is just one example of what might happen if you ignore your dental pains.

So what can we do about it?

At Dental Care Group, we won’t be unplugging our phones or leaving them on voicemail.
