We’re well-equipped as emergency dentists
In the past, even as a walk-in dentist, we’ve successfully treated many dental emergencies, some of which would have resulted in disfiguring or painful consequences for patients had we not acted right away. Thanks to our constant investment in upgrading and housing the latest technological equipment, − such as 3D scanners and on-site X-Rays – initial and follow-up treatment times are greatly shortened. These investments in operational infrastructure we done precisely to trim down wait time, treatment time, and follow-up time frames.
Our priority, whether as a walk-in’ dentist or routine care dentist is always to:
- stop any serious blood loss
- save tissue and the teeth
- provide safe, pain-relieving drugs.
Here’s when you may need a walk-in dentist
- No one likes mouth issues but some are worse than others. See us a walk-in dentist in Durban right away if:
- Your tooth bleeding continues unabated.
- You’re showing signs of unusual swelling that’s also painful
- You have a seriously painful toothache that is not getting relief from painkillers.
- You’ve lost a tooth, or had it knocked out.
- Remember that anything in the mouth left untreated for too long can evolve into an emergency later on.
Routine check-ups stop many would-be emergencies in their tracks
A general rule of thumb is to come in twice a year. At minimum you should see a dentist every 18 months, even if you have healthy teeth. Anything less than this, and you are putting your oral health at risk.
Swollen lymph nodes can also indicate the presence of certain cancers. Misbehaving lymph nodes could also point to a thyroid that’s malfunctioning. The lymph node check involves a physical check under lights, but we could do X-Ray scans if we detect something strange. We never proceed unilaterally and always consult out patients first.
