When you need us most.
If your child needs urgent dental care, we will do our best to schedule a visit that same day. If your child should have an emergency outside of normal office hours, please call our office and the answering service will assist in getting our on-call dentist to respond quickly.
The following is some helpful information from the American Dental Association for common dental emergencies. Always call our office for guidance.
- If a tooth gets knocked out, every effort should be made to keep it moist. Try putting the tooth back into its socket but be careful not to touch the root. If that’s not possible, you can put the tooth in milk or have your child hold the tooth in their mouth, between their cheek and gum.
- If your child cracks a tooth, have them rinse with warm water. Use cold compresses to reduce swelling.
- Toothaches can be caused by a number of things. Instruct your child to rinse with warm water. Sometimes dental floss can remove food trapped between teeth.
- Some children may have objects stuck in their mouth. Remove them using floss if possible.
