Emergency Dentistry 101
We understand that dental emergencies can be very stressful and sometimes scary. Here are some pointers that can ease the situation and help you take the right steps when an emergency arises:
If your child breaks a tooth, rinse any dirt or debris out of the injured area with warm (not hot) water. Try to save any pieces of the broken tooth and gently rinse them off and store them safely in a sealed container. If needed, you can apply a cold compress to the outside of their cheek closest to the injured tooth. After you apply the compress, please call our office so that we can get your little one in to see us right away.
Cold Sores/Canker Sores
Cold sores are fairly common and over-the-counter cold sore medications usually provide pain relief and help them go down in size. If your child has a large, severe cold/canker sore and store-bought medication isn’t working, please call us. Our CO2 lasers provide quick treatment for sores.
Knocked-Out Permanent Tooth
If your child’s permanent tooth gets knocked out, pick it up gently by the crown (top) of the tooth and rinse off any debris. If possible, reinsert the tooth back into its place and have your child lightly bite down on a clean piece of gauze or cloth to hold it in place. If you can’t put it back, place it in a glass or container of milk and transport it with you to the office. Timeliness is crucial when it comes to saving a knocked-out tooth, so call our office immediately if it happens to your child.
We understand that toothaches are quite a pain. Have your child point out the sore area and have them rinse with a warm salt water solution to dislodge any potentially trapped food debris. We also recommend gently flossing around the area as well. If needed, apply a cold compress to their cheek for 15 minutes. If the toothache persists, please call us and we’ll get your child in for an emergency visit.
