Your child’s smile is precious, so getting the care they need is essential. Our doctors are on standby to assist in emergencies, so you don’t have to go through any issues alone.

Dental emergencies can cause a lot of pain and discomfort for your child. In cases like these, the first piece of advice we can give you is to remain as calm as possible.

Next, check out some of our solutions for common dental emergencies.

How to Cope

When the sensitive part of your child’s tooth is exposed, it becomes more vulnerable to decay and infection, so please contact us immediately! To help with the issue, you can rinse your child’s mouth thoroughly with warm water, and if fragments have broken off, bring them with you to our office.

Knocked Out Tooth
What to Do

If one of your child’s permanent teeth has been knocked out, contact us right away! Then, try to find and save the tooth and rinse it with warm water. If the tooth is in one piece, try to put it back in its original place and have your child bite on it with a gauze. If not, put the tooth in a cup with some milk.

Start Pain Relief

Having a sore tooth can be extremely uncomfortable or painful for your child. Try gently cleaning the area and make sure there isn’t any food stuck in the tooth. Rinse your child’s mouth with warm saltwater. If your child’s cheek or face is swollen, please call us immediately and apply a cold compress.
