Common Dental Emergencies

If your child has just experienced an accident, injury, or severe pain from a toothache, you may be wondering what to do, and what kind of care to look into. Read the following for some guidance on common emergency situations, and don’t forget to call our office right away for prompt care.

Knocked-Out Tooth | If your child’s tooth is knocked out, we may be able to save it. 

  • First, call our office immediately. 
  • Then, when caring for the injury, be careful to avoid touching the tooth root.
  • Rinse the tooth cautiously, and try to reinsert it into the socket.
  • If the tooth cannot be reinserted back into the socket, place the tooth in a container of milk and bring it with you to our office.

Toothache | Tooth pain or a toothache usually indicates that there is a dental issue that requires immediate attention. Call us if your child is experiencing toothache and we’ll schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

Broken, Cracked, or Damaged Tooth | If your child experiences an accident or sports injury that damages a tooth, call us immediately. We’ll provide you with instructions and schedule an appointment.

In the meantime, make sure that any sharp points are covered, to avoid causing further damage to the inside of the mouth.
