What to do if a tooth is knocked out Adult and Child

Dental Emergencies and Pain Management

Teeth can be cracked, chipped, become loose, or be completely knocked out from accidents or trauma.

Sometimes the damage to the tooth/teeth can't be seen by the naked eye.

If left unchecked, the injury can significantly increase the risk of infection, decay, and loss of the tooth.

This is why it is always best to have teeth quickly assessed and treated by a dentist after injury.

In the event of dental pain — DO NOT place tablets (eg Panadol), ice or other foreign objects near the pain.

This can result in chemical burns or damage to surrounding soft tissue which will only add to the discomfort.

Dr.Matic and our friendly staff have managed countless dental emergencies.

Thirty years of clinical expereince and expertise is at your service.

We look forward to looking after you.

Dental Check - Ups

Dental Check-ups, help spot dental problems early, when treatment is likely to be simple and less expensive.

It is recommended that children have a check up every 6 months, as there is rapid change in their teeth as they move from their baby teeth to their adult teeth.

As a rule of thumb adults need a check up every 6 to 9 months, depending on the individual.

X-Rays are taken only when there is a clinical need to do so.

Gum health, in adults is also closely monitored and managed, particularly as we age. Gum disease leads to bone loss around teeth, which in turn leads to teeth becoming loose, and being lost.

The dentist also checks for cancers and other suspicious lesions during your check up.

Dr.Matic and our friendly staff have looked after the dental health of local families for 30 years.

Thirty years of clinical experience and expertise is at your service.

We look forward to looking after you and your family.

Oral Hygiene Instruction

Oral Hygiene Instructions Bacteria that live in the mouth also love the food we eat. They create harmful acids, plaque and tartar, that cause cavities and gum infections.

Brushing and flossing at home is the first line of defence to protect against tooth decay and gum infections.

Having and maintaining good oral hygiene is built on good brushing and flossing techniques.

Understanding how to brush and floss effectively, enables you to maintain good oral hygiene. Good oral hygiene in turn minimises the development of cavities, gum infections, bad breath, and gum disease.

It is important to understand that no matter how well we brush and floss, over time tartar and staining does build up and can only be removed with a professional scale and clean.

Dental Scale and Cleans

Bacteria that live in the mouth also love the food we eat.

They create harmful acids, plaque and tartar, that cause cavities and lead to gum infections.

Everyday activities like drinking coffee, tea, wine, and smoking stain teeth, over time.

Brushing and flossing help counter these effects, however, there are areas where the plaque, tartar, and some stains, are not removed.

A professional dental clean removes the tartar, and most of the shallow stains that brushing and flossing can't remove.

After a professional clean:

*   Teeth are whiter and brighter

*   Breath is fresh and odour free, and;

*   Risk of developing cavities and gum infections is greatly reduced.

30 years of clinical experience and expertise is at your service.

We look forward to looking after you and your family.

Treatment of Gum Disease and Infections

Gingivitis — Early Stage Gum Disease

Bacteria that live in the mouth also love the food we eat.

They create harmful acids, plaque and tartar, that can lead to gum inflammation and infections.

A regular professional dental clean, and good at home brushing and flossing usually effectively controls gingivitis, and maintains good gum and oral health.

Periodontitis - Advanced Gum Disease

If left untreated, gingivitis develops into periodontitis.

Periodontitis is damage to the bone that supports the teeth. Over time teeth become loose, fall out or require removal.

Periodontal treatment can stop or slow down the bone loss to help you keep your teeth for as long as possible.

Dr. Matic and our staff have helped many individuals acheive and maintain good gum health - and in turn keep their natural teeth.

We look forward to helping you.

30 years of clinical experience and expertise is at your service.

Dental X-Rays 

While your teeth and gums may look healthy, a dental X-ray can help the dentist find hidden problem areas.

They allow the dentist to see

*   Between teeth

*   Under fillings

*   Under decay

*   Around the roots of teeth, and

*   Position of vital nerve and blood supply structures in the jaws

*   Lesions in the jaw bones - to name a few.

Being able to identify hidden problems early - is a vital part of providing the high quality dental services you and your family deserve.

The earlier dental problems are identified and treated, the more likely it is that treatment will be simple and less expensive.

X-rays are also an important tool during certain procedures.

Our clinic is equipped with high quality digital x-ray imaging equipment for your convenience.

When interpreting your x-rays Dr. Matic brings 30 years of clinical experience and expertise to the task, to ensure you receive quality care.​

Natural Looking Fillings and Restorations

Keeping your natural teeth is your best dental health outcome.

Your own tooth is usually stronger and more efficient for biting and chewing than any artificial alternative.

Chipped, and broken teeth - teeth that have decayed, or that have a broken filling or a filling that has fallen out - do not necessarily have to be lost.

In most instances the shape and function of the affected tooth can be restored by placing a filling.

We use a wide range of contemporary, strong, natural looking filling materials to give you a high quality result that blends with your existing tooth colour.

It is very important to monitor and maintain all fillings to ensure optimum oral and overall health — therefore regular dental check ups a must.

Dr. Matic and our friendly staff have restored thousands of teeth, over 30 years in practice - we look forward to looking after you and your family.

Fees vary depending on the tooth being treated and the size of the cavity being repaired.

Our fees range from $155 - $215

Average fees in Victoria (2018) ranged from $161 - $296.

Very large fillings may require pins and/or posts. They are not    included in the fee estimates shown above.

Root Canal Treatments

Keeping your natural teeth is your best dental health outcome.

Your own tooth is usually stronger and more efficient for biting and chewing than any artificial alternative.

Teeth that have:

*    snapped and broken

*    very large cavaities,

*    abscesses (infection) around the roots — do not have to be lost.

In many instances they can be saved by a root canal treatment (endodontic treatment).

The procedure usually stops pain - very quickly - and prevents future episodes of pain and infection.

The procedure usually involves 2 - 3 visits depending on the tooth that is being treated.

Dr. Matic has performed hundreds of successful root canal treatments over 30 years of practice.

He brings that experience and expertise to managing your dental pain, and saving your tooth with a root canal treatment.

Fees vary according to the number of canals in the tooth and other procedures that may be required to restore the tooth long term.

Night/Bruxism Splints

Clenching and grinding of teeth is known as bruxism, and often occurs at night Prolonged bruxism can lead to:

  • painful jaws
  • painful joints of the jaw
  • headaches
  • failed fillings
  • cracked and chipped teeth
  • sensitivity of teeth, and wearing down of teeth from grinding.

A night splint can provide relief from pain, and protect the teeth from wear.

Restoring worn teeth can be complex and expensive — prevention is certainly the better option.

Dr. Matic and our friendly staff have helped many individuals manage their bruxism — over 30 years in practice.

We are confident we can help you manage your grinding and clenching and are looking forward to looking after you.

Custom Mouthguards

Each year, thousands of adults and children are treated for dental injuries that occurred while playing sport.

Most of the injuries could have been prevented or minimised by wearing a customised mouthguard.

Customised mouthguards are a must for anyone playing sports where deliberate contact is a legitimate part of the game such as rugby union and league, AFL, hockey and boxing.

Accidental collisions and dental trauma happen in 'non-contact' sports such as cricket, basketball, netball, touch football, and soccer.

It's best to play it safe and wear a custom mouthguard.

Many colours available

Dr.Matic and our friendly staff have provided countless, quality customised mouthguards, over 30 years in practice.

We look forward to creating one for you, in your favourite team colours.

*   Preparing the teeth to better absorb the bleaching/whitening agent

*   Recording the pre-treatment shade of your teeth

Cosmetic Dentistry – Reshaping Existing Teeth

Bonding can be used successfully to create a beautiful smile.

Small dental irregularities on the front teeth such as gaps, spots and blemishes, and chips and cracks can be easily corrected with bonding.

The procedure requires one visit which involves:

  • etching the tooth surface with a gel
  • applying the adhesive bond
  • applying a colour matched resin material to correct the defect
  • shaping and setting — trimming and polishing.

Bonding can also be used as a temporary measure to improve the smile - if a more permanent treatment such as porcelain veneers or crowns are planned for a later stage.

Bonded resin is not as strong or stain resistant as materials used to make veneers and crowns. It is prone to chipping or breaking and can be easily touched up and repaired.

Dr. Matic and our staff have helped thousands of individuals achieve a whiter, brighter smile - over 30 years in practice.

Dental Crowns – Non Removable

Keeping natural teeth is the best dental health outcome. From time to time, our teeth need a little help to keep going.

Dental crowns/caps are often the best way to save a tooth and strengthen it if it has been substantially weakened by:

  • trauma such as a fall
  • significant tooth decay
  • large fillings
  • root canal treatments
  • wear from clenching and grinding, and age related wear and tear

A crown is custom made to fit over the existing tooth, and is permanent.

All our crowns have no metal, and are made from zircona — for strength, for stain resistance, for colour and for its natural look.

Dr. Matic and our staff have strengthened thousands of teeth with crowns/caps.

Thirty years of clinical expertise and experience is at your service.

Dental Bridges – Non Removable

A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth, and is not removed once it has been put in place.

Missing teeth are important to replace to:

  • improve appearance and speech
  • maintain the natural bite
  • improve chewing ability
  • prevent stresses that can cause damage to other teeth, and prevent teeth near the gap from shifting which would further reduce chewing ability and disrupt the natural bite.

Bridges are custom made — from materials known for their strength — with teeth that are also strong - colour matched to your existing teeth — and natural looking.

Dr. Matic and our staff have created hundreds of dental bridges — over 30 years in practice. We look forward to working with you to create yours.

Immediate Dentures

An immediate denture is a denture that replaces some teeth (part denture), or all teeth (full denture) - as soon as teeth are removed.

The big advantage of an immediate denture is that it is made before teeth are removed - so you will always have teeth in a social setting.

An immediate denture requires planning, as the denture is made in advance of the teeth being removed.

Free denture adjustments for up to three months after the denture is placed - is included in our fee.

As healing begins, the contours of the gums and jaws start to shrink. As this occurs it is normal for the immediate dentures to become loose.

A service called a reline - corrects for these changes and improves the fit of the dentures.

We recommend relines three months after the immediate denture is inserted.

Dr. Matic and our staff have assisted hundreds of patients successfully transition to immediate dentures.

We look forward to assisting you transition to an ummediate denture.

Acrylic part dentures have a base that is acrylic.

Each part denture is custom made for you, and the artificial teeth that are used are colour matched to your existing teeth, to give a very natural smile.

If natural teeth are lost some time after the part denture is made, more teeth can be added to your denture to replace the lost teeth.

Part dentures can take several visits to complete. A faster completion time is possible by arrangement.

Denture Relines - Helping Dentures Fit Better

Denture Relines — Helping Dentures Fit Better Dentures should fit securely over the gums and ridges in the mouth so that you can chew food properly speak and smile confidently.

Dentures can become loose. If you have had an immediate denture, your gums and the ridges in the mouth will shrink as healing occurs.

Gums and ridges in the mouth also shrink as we get older. So dentures that have served you well for many years — will become loose over time.

Loose dentures may move when you speak, eat, and smile — and may create sore spots.

In many instances you do not need to have a new set of dentures.

A denture reline is an effective and affordable way to improve the fit of your existing dentures. This is done by changing the surface of the denture that is in contact with the gums and ridges in the mouth.

The relined denture fits tightly over the gums providing stability, improving functionality, and allowing you to speak and smile confidently again.

Dr. Matic and our staff have relined hundreds of dentures — over 30 years of clinical practice. We can help your dentures fit better too.

Tooth Extractions/ Removal

Keeping your natural teeth is your best dental health outcome. Your own tooth is usually stronger and more efficient for biting and chewing than any artificial alternative.

However there are circumstances where a tooth can't be saved, and the only way to relieve pain is to have the tooth pulled out.

Circumstances where a tooth can't be saved clinically include:

  • trauma — where a tooth is damaged beyond restoration through a hit to the face or a fall
  • dental decay — where a tooth has decayed beyond being able to be saved with a root canal treatment
  • dental abscess — where there is infection around the roots of a tooth that can't be saved with a root canal treatment
  • gum (periodontal) disease — where a tooth is very loose because of severe bone loss around the roots

We also respect your decision to have a tooth removed by choice.

Dr. Matic and our staff have provided affordable, gentle pain relief by way of removing a tooth for hundreds of individuals, over 30 years of clinical practice. We extend our expertise and experience to you in managing your tooth extraction.

Wisdom Teeth Management and Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last molars at the back of your jaws. They erupt some time in your late teens to your early twenties.

Sometimes there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth. Instead of coming through straight, they erupt at an angle.

This puts pressure on the adjacent tooth. Gums become inflamed and infected, causing pain and bad breath.

The wisdom tooth and the tooth next to it are difficult to keep clean, and often decay.

Rinsing with warm salty water (one teaspoon of salt with one cup of warm water) up to four times a day - may help reduce pain and improve your breath.

Do not place tablets, ice or anything hot, directly on the affected area — as these can cause chemical burns and additional trauma — only adding to your discomfort.

Dr. Matic and our staff have helped hundreds of individuals with an affordable, gentle service for the removal and management of their wisdom teeth. We are able to successfully remove wisdom teeth at our rooms in most instances.

If we are unable to remove them at our rooms — we will refer you to the appropriate health professional.​​​​​​
