Common Dental Emergencies
A good rule of thumb: when the pain is too much to bear, it’s probably a dental emergency. Common reasons to seek emergency dental care include:
If your child has any of these symptoms, contact us right away. While something like a broken tooth may be painful, it is rarely life-threatening. However, something like swelling to the jaw and face could indicate a life-threatening infection. Contact us right away if your child is experiencing swelling or any of the above symptoms.
If your child’s tooth was knocked out, there is still a chance to save it. To begin with, never hold a tooth by its roots. Keep it clean by putting it in a glass of milk or water mixed with salt. This will keep the life of the tooth until you arrive at one of our offices. If it is not too painful, try to put the tooth back in the socket as well.
