No one likes to handle an emergency! However, you can curb the stress and pain during a pediatric dental emergency by knowing what to do and where to go. In most situations, we can provide same-day treatment. If you are an established patient, we can even offer after-hours care and on weekends! 

Here are a few quick tips on how to handle certain scenarios:

  • If your child knocked out a permanent tooth, quickly put the tooth in a glass of milk or saliva. Place gauze on their gums if there is any bleeding, then visit us right away.
  • If they’ve broken a tooth, collect any pieces of the tooth. Then apply ice to the area of their mouth to reduce pain and swelling.
  • If your child has a toothache, have them rinse out their mouth with warm water, and schedule a visit as soon as possible. It could be a sign of tooth decay that needs addressing.

One of the best ways to be prepared for a dental emergency is by making sure your child has a pediatric dentist that can help them. If you aren’t an existing patient, we’d love to meet you and your child and provide them with the dental care they need.
