One facet of a dental emergency is that they do not always happen when you are standing outside the office of your dentists at Joondalup City Dental. They can occur anywhere and at any time of the day or night, although, given that you likely spend the majority of your time at home, it is a reasonable bet that at home is where you are going to experience a dental emergency.
Another aspect of dental emergencies is that they do not conform to the opening hours of dentists’ practices. They are as likely to occur at midnight, on Christmas Day, or at breakfast time on a Sunday morning as they are at times when your dentists would be able to treat you. It is, therefore, going to be useful to know how you can treat certain dental emergencies for yourself, or a member of your family, whilst at home and until such times as your dentist’s practice is open.
Broken Or Chipped Tooth
A broken or loose tooth can happen for all sorts of reasons when you are at home such as biting a hard piece of food, bumping your mouth against something or someone, and even when playing in the garden where a ball hits you smack in the mouth.
