Pediatric Dental Emergencies
When your child is in pain due to a problem with a tooth or she has sustained trauma to the mouth, the last thing you want to do is wait in a crowded waiting room to be seen by a doctor who does not know much about treating dental problems. This is what happens to most dental emergency patients who go to the hospital emergency rooms rather than a dentist.
Children can sustain a variety of injuries and dental problems that may require an immediate visit to the dentist. Kids involved in sports sometimes have trauma during games or practice. Rambunctious kids fall and may knock out a tooth or cut a lip. Sometimes a child will have an infected tooth that needs immediate attention.
