What should I do in an emergency?
Whether you're a new or existing patient, don't hesitate to call us on (03) 9347 2033. Whether it be a broken, chipped or lost tooth, pain or dental-related sports injury, we will go above and beyond to ensure we see you promptly on the same day. Outside of working hours, you can book an appointment with us online or alternatively, The Royal Dental Hospital, on 720 Swanston Street, is less than a 10 minute walk away from Carlton Dental.
What do I need to bring with me for my appointment?
A list of current medications you are taking, any dental appliances you use (e.g. occlusal splint) and your health fund card if you have one.
How much will it cost?
It is difficult to quote a fee because all patients have unique needs that correlate to different services. At your appointment, as part of your individualised treatment plan, your dentist will discuss fees with you, making sure you are fully informed. We have the HICAPS system which ensures you receive instant rebate from your health insurance company. We accept Visa, Mastercard and AMEX.
Why do I need xrays?
There are parts of your teeth, like between teeth and underneath existing fillings, that are impossible for a dentist to see with just their eyes. Dental x-rays allow your dentist to thoroughly assess the condition of your teeth, which will translate to the most appropriate treatment for you.
When should I take my child for their first dental visit?
Your child should see a dentist within 6 months of their first tooth appearing, and no later than 12 months of age. Your dentist will chat to you about how to properly care for your child's teeth, and answer any questions you have.
My tooth was knocked out, what should I do?
Firstly, don't panic. If the whole tooth is out of its socket, pick it up, avoiding touching the root and rinse it with milk or water, for a couple of seconds. Now, carefully put it back into it's position in your mouth. Now come see us ASAP. Your tooth has a higher chance of surviving the sooner you see a dentist.
If part of your tooth is chipped, keep it moist, and visit us ASAP so your dentist can see if the broken part can be re-attached. If you've lost it, don't panic. We can take care of this too. Give us a call on (03) 9347 2033.
