Emergency Dentistry Q & A
If your child is dealing with a dental emergency, you should call Dentistry for Children immediately. If you need urgent treatment after office hours, please call the emergency number for immediate assistance.
Children can get into accidents fairly easily and compromise their oral health. Here are some of the best ways to handle a dental emergency before you get a chance to come to Dentistry for Children:
Bitten lip or tongue
If your child’s lip or tongue is bitten to the point of bleeding, make sure to clean the area with water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
Object caught in teeth
Use dental floss or a toothpick to gently remove an object stuck between your child’s tooth. Avoid using any type of sharp tools or other metal and plastic objects that can cause more damage to the teeth and gums.
Chipped or fractured tooth
Have your child rinse their mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress. If you can locate the fragment of the tooth, keep it clean and wrap it in gauze to bring to Dentistry for Children.
Knocked out tooth
Have your child rinse their mouth with warm water, then gently place the tooth back into the socket and hold it in place with a clean cloth or small towel. If you can’t return the tooth to the socket, keep it in a container of milk.
