Recognizing a Dental Emergency for Your Child

Common pediatric dental emergencies include:

  • Knocked-out teeth, which are particularly urgent. Immediate treatment can often save the tooth.
  • Chipped or fractured teeth that cause pain or have sharp fragments that could injure the mouth.
  • Severe toothache that disrupts sleep or daily activities.
  • Injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth, including lips, gums, and cheeks.

How We Help During an Emergency

When you contact us for a dental emergency, we prioritize your child’s needs to ensure they receive prompt attention. Our team is trained to handle pediatric dental crises with the utmost care, ensuring that your child is as comfortable as possible during their treatment.

Steps to Take in a Dental Emergency

  1. Contact Our Office Immediately: As soon as an emergency arises, reach out to our office. We offer advice over the phone and prepare for your arrival if immediate in-office treatment is needed.
  2. Manage Pain and Swelling: If your child is in pain, a cold compress can be applied to the face to help reduce swelling and discomfort. Avoid applying heat or any topical pain relievers directly to the gums or teeth as these can cause further irritation.
  3. Preserve the Tooth: In cases of a knocked-out tooth, keep the tooth moist at all times. If possible, try putting the tooth back in its socket without touching the root. If that is not an option, keep the tooth in a glass of milk or your child’s saliva until you can get to our office.
