When accidents happen, or when your child is in pain our Pediatric Dental team are here to help you and your family emergencies. We accept patients on short notice in times of an emergency and have Specialists on call to help save your child’s teeth and restore his/her level of comfort quickly.
- When teeth are knocked out, dislodged, or chipped, contact our office as soon as possible. If your child has lost a tooth or pieces of a tooth, do your best to bring them to the appointment. Avoid placing pieces of damaged teeth in water and instead place them in milk or Save-A-Tooth solution (available at most pharmacies). If a tooth has been dislodged or forced into the gum line, avoid touching the affected area or moving the tooth. Sometimes children develop a dental emergency when damage to a tooth or extensive decay reaches the root canal. This interior chamber of the tooth holds nerves and pulp and when exposed, it can produce moderate to severe discomfort. If your child is experiencing a painful toothache, schedule an appointment with our team so that we can assess the underlying cause of your child’s pain. Some dental emergencies can be prevented with regular check-ups to detect decay in its earliest stages and use of a dental mouth guard to protect teeth and gums during physical activity. Because accidents are not always avoidable, rest assured that our experienced team will help you and your child overcome dental traumas with excellent care and a gentle touch.
