Why do I need Xrays?
I wish I was superwoman.. but unfortunately we do not have Xray vision.
Xrays give us that next level of information when it comes to diagnosis of your particular issue and also in working out the treatment options available.
Without Xrays we are really just guessing. I don’t know about you, but I would prefer if the person I’ve trusted to look after me didn’t have to guess as to what to do next. Plus…. We’ve had enough of those terrible stories of extractions with a ‘knee on the chest’. Yep.. Xrays are really helpful.
At Your New Dentist we use 100% digital Xray technology. The amount of radiation you will be exposed to with a regular dental Xray is equal to about 4 minutes of sunshine ** Heads up.. an average flight in a plane exposes you to significant amounts of cosmic radiation.
Your digital Xray is ready to view on about 3o seconds. A great investment in making sure you get the correct diagnosis and treatment.
My tooth was knocked out, what should I do?
This can be very distressing. Try to stay calm and get help.
First and MOST importantly was there a loss of consciousness? IF so, teeth come second. Keep the tooth / teeth stored in milk * See instructions below. And control bleeding.
Vomiting can be a sign on concussion.
Get medical help straight away at the nearest hospital emergency department. Concussion and loss of consciousness can be serious and need management straight away.
If a tooth has been knocked out… without a loss of consciousness. A permanent tooth reimplanted within 30 minutes has the greatest chance if success.
Follow these steps…
- Handle the tooth very carefully by the CROWN ONLY.
- The root surface of a tooth is home to millions of tiny cells. A tooth can be successfully reimplanted but we need to keep those little suckers alive… and they are very fussy about how they are handled.
- If there is dirt on the root rinse it carefully under lukewarm water. DO NOT scrub or scrap the root and definitely DO NOT use alcohol.
- If you feel confident re insert the tooth into the socket and get your patient to bite gently on a swab made from a folded tissue / or hankerchief etc.
- If you’re not sure about reimplanting, The cells on the root surface are very sensitive. Store the tooth in Milk and seek dental emergency help as soon as possible.
- Reassure your patient and Keep them calm. You can give them Panadol if they are in pain and apply an icepack to the injured area.
- Congratulations… you may have just saved someone smile!
