Dental Emergency Capalaba & Victoria Point
Accidents happen – it’s just the way of life, whether out on the sporting field, at the family home or during the course of a regular day. In the event of a dental emergency, time is of the essence and it’s great to know that your family friendly dentist has you covered.
When at tooth is knocked out or dislodged it is important to follow a few basic guidelines prior to visiting the dentist, this will ensure the greatest possible chance of the tooth being saved. When picking the tooth up, ensure that you hold the tooth by the crown and not the root. Ensuring that the root of the tooth suffers as little trauma as possible can make a big difference. Once you have picked up the tooth very gently rinse the tooth in milk and then carefully place it back inside your mouth, resting it against the gums. This needs to be in the cheek pocket, not near the tongue, and for younger children with a danger of swallowing they should leave the tooth in the milk and head straight to the dentist.

Even if you do not seem to be in a lot of pain, any structural damage to a tooth should be considered an emergency.
Chips or fractures can have an effect on the living tissue inside of the tooth, leading to problems further down the track. Seeing a dentist immediately can prevent future damage and resolve the issues you may have.
Preventing dental trauma
Sporting injuries are notably prevalent among older children and adults. It’s estimated by dentists that 13 – 39% of all dental traumas are a result of sporting events. A significant 80% of such injuries predominantly affect the front teeth. Yet, data from the Australian Dental Association indicates that only 36% of children use a mouthguard while engaging in sports.
Each year, thousands sustain dental injuries. A vast majority of these could be effectively prevented with the adoption of a custom-fitted mouthguard. At Redlands Gentle Dental Care, serving Capalaba and Victoria Point, we firmly believe in the adage that prevention surpasses restoration.
