For many Melburnians, the Queen’s birthday long weekend (Saturday 12th June to Monday 14th June) is a time to be active- kick a ball around, ride a bike, take the scooter out, jump on the trampoline, and run a muck.
Interestingly, the time off work and study is also when many sports accidents and injuries occur- resulting in many parents and individuals contacting the dentist for urgent care.
Dental emergencies on public holidays are not uncommon. Common accidents and injuries include;
- A lost filling
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- A loose tooth.
- A missing tooth
- Tooth abscess
- Gum abscess
- Swelling or bleeding
- Braces or retainers causing irritation
- Knocked out tooth
- Injury to the jaw
- Bitten tongue or lip where bleeding doesn’t stop
- Objects wedged between the teeth
If you find yourself or a loved one suffering from an accident or injury, contact MC Dental at 8608-8968. Online bookings will become available closer to the public holiday. MC Dental at Melbourne Central and Westfield Doncaster will be open during the Queen’s birthday long weekend.
