Dental Emergencies

While accidents or dental emergencies can happen, it is essential to be aware of preventive measures that can help safeguard your teeth and gums from injury. Surprisingly, everyday habits and certain food choices can pose risks to your dental health. To ensure optimal oral well-being, here are some of the recommendation from our dentist at 8 Queens Quay W Dental Clinic:

- Biting into ice should be avoided as the cold temperature and hardness of ice can potentially cause your teeth or dental work to crack or break. 

- When consuming hard foods such as popcorn, hard candy, peanut brittle, or shelled nuts, it is advisable to eat them slowly to minimize the risk of dental damage. 

- It is important to refrain from using your teeth as tools for tasks such as cutting tape or ribbons, opening packaging, or holding objects. Utilize appropriate tools like scissors to prevent any unnecessary strain on your teeth. 

- If you participate in sports, particularly contact sports, it is crucial to wear a mouthguard. Mouthguards are specifically designed to absorb shock and protect your teeth from potential damage. Consult your dentist to determine the most suitable mouthguard for your specific needs. 

- In case of a toothache, call our dentist immediately. Our dentist can suggest medication or treatment plans to relieve the pain.  Do not put a heating pad, a hot water bottle, or any other source of heat on your jaw. The heat will make things worse instead of better.

- Knocked-out Baby Tooth - Call our dentist immediately. If you see bleeding , rinse the kid's mouth with water and place cotton gauze on the opening. Applying cold compresses will help the kids' mouth from swelling.


"I recently visited the new dental clinic, and I'm impressed with the modern facilities and friendly staff. The atmosphere is inviting, and the dentist was thorough in explaining procedures. Overall, a positive experience that makes dental care more comfortable. Will definitely recommend people to go for treatment here."
