Common Dental Emergencies

Here are some of the scenarios for which you need to call an emergency dentist in Glen Waverley:

While some dental emergencies can be managed with first aid, damage such as broken fillings, lost crowns, broken dentures, damaged tissues, chipped teeth and knocked-out teeth should be addressed as soon as possible by a dental professional. Leaving any dental emergency untreated or unsolved can progressively contribute to poor dental health, which can result in serious health issues.

Definitely. During pregnancy, women need complete care and attention. This extends to oral health.

Some mistakenly stop caring for their teeth during pregnancy. This shouldn’t be.

The body changes during pregnancy, which can create dental issues or worsen existing ones.

For instance, pregnant women are at greater risk for gum disease because the gums are inflamed due to increased blood flow to the gum tissues caused by changes in hormone levels.

To be safe, let your dentist know far along you are and if there is special advice from your OBGYN. There are some restrictions on dental treatments including X-rays and teeth whitening.

Yes. We can replace old and unsightly fillings, including coloured fillings such as silver amalgam fillings, with tooth coloured materials.

White fillings, also called tooth-coloured fillings, are used to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay, cracks, or fractures.

The composite material, which is made of glass particles suspended in a resin matrix, is obtainable in many different shades to perfectly match your tooth. Composite fillings are bonded directly to your tooth, helping to support the remaining structure of the tooth. White fillings are ideal for correcting minor aesthetic flaws and can be completed in one appointment.

Correcting crooked teeth was once seen as merely an aesthetic improvement. Few recognised the health advantages of straight teeth alignment.

However, crooked teeth can cause bite difficulty and can even be a home for tooth decay, as brushing is more difficult. That’s why we at EK Dental Surgery recommend orthodontic treatment to treat crooked teeth.

At EK Dental Surgery, we offer different methods of straightening teeth. We will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and mouth and see which type of braces best suit your case. Our available treatments include traditional braces and Invisalign.

Traditional braces are fixed orthodontic equipment. They can be place and removed by your dentist as part of your orthodontic plan.

The arch wire places constant yet gentle pressure on the brackets attached to the teeth. This force condenses and stretches the periodontal ligament (the fleshy tissue between the tooth and tooth socket that holds the teeth in place) and loosens specific teeth, which makes them easier to move. Conventional braces can take anywhere from 12 to 24 months to bring visible results, depending on the orthodontic requirement of the patient.

Invisalign involves a series of virtually invisible aligners that gently shift the teeth into their new, ideal position. The trays are removable, so you can eat and brush your teeth without hassle. This also means that you don’t need to skip your favourite foods and you can still improve your dental hygiene habits during the course of treatment.

Small chips can be fixed with composite fillings. For bigger chips and cracks, we may recommend dental veneers or crowns.

White fillings are used to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay, cracks or fractures. The composite material, which is made of glass particles suspended in a resin matrix, is obtainable in many different shades so matching tooth colour is easy. The fillings are bonded directly to your tooth, helping to support the remaining structure of the tooth.

Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells, which are as thin as contact lenses. They are finely crafted and bonded over your teeth to mask the underlying enamel. Covering the damaged section easily improves the overall appearance of your teeth.

Dental crowns are versatile tooth restorations. The protective cap encases the entire visible portion of the tooth to improve its strength, size, and appearance.

The efficacy of the treatment for gum disease depends on the severity of the condition. Gingivitis, an early stage can be treated with dental cleaning and good oral hygiene.

To reduce the inflammation for advanced stages, professional dental cleaning, scaling, and root planing are recommended. Oral hygiene instructions to improve your dental hygiene methods, and treatment for any problems that contribute to the problem will be addressed as well. Underlying health conditions must also be treated.

At EK Dental Surgery, we will recommend the best treatment for your gum health problems. Untreated, gum disease can cause tooth sensitivity, loose teeth, and eventual tooth loss.

Teeth whitening is a terrific way to get rid of stained teeth. The most commonly used teeth whitening procedures are professional home whitening systems and in-chair whitening.

Professional dental whitening is fast and most of all, effective. The procedure is non-invasive, as it doesn’t involve drilling or removal of a tooth surface.

If you are a good candidate, your dentist will recommend the best tooth whitening option that suits your needs and lifestyle.

For persistent stains, we recommend dental veneers and crowns.

Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells, which are as thin as contact lenses. They are finely crafted and bonded over your teeth to mask the underlying enamel. Covering the damaged part quickly improves the overall appearance of your teeth.

Dental crowns are versatile tooth restorations. The protective cap encases the entire visible portion of the tooth to improve its strength, size and appearance.
