What to Do in a Dental Emergency

Chipped, fractured, and knocked out teeth are among the most common dental emergencies in children. If your child’s tooth is knocked out, quick action is needed in order to save the tooth. The best thing you can do for the child, and the tooth, is to stay calm and follow a few important steps.

When a child’s tooth is knocked out:

  • Rinse the tooth with water
  • Do not scrub the tooth or use soap
  • Put the tooth in a jar or Ziplock back with water or milk
  • Take your child to the dentist immediately

The treatment at our office will depend on whether the tooth is a baby tooth or a permanent tooth. Baby teeth are generally not replanted to avoid damaging the permanent tooth that is developing. A permanent tooth will be replanted and splinted in place using a wire, depending on the condition of the tooth. Each injury is unique, so it is difficult to determine how well the tooth will respond to treatment.

Fractured or chipped teeth require attention from the pediatric dentist. The treatment depends on the severity of the damage and whether it is a baby or permanent tooth. We will examine your child’s tooth to determine the best treatment.

Emergency Care for Mouth Pain

We offer emergency dental treatment in Phoenix for mouth pain. if your child is experiencing dental pain, it is important to bring them in for an examination. In the meantime, you can use over-the-counter medications to help alleviate the pain. However, the root cause of the problem needs to be treated to stop the pain. Toothache is often due to cavities or infection. We can examine your child’s tooth and recommend the most effective treatment option.

Signs Your Child Needs Emergency Dental Care

Several signs may indicate that your child needs emergency dental care in Phoenix. These signs include the following:

  • Severe toothache or facial swelling, which could indicate an infection or abscess.
  • Bleeding from the mouth due to trauma or injury to the teeth or gums.
  • Dislodged or avulsed permanent teeth, requiring urgent intervention for a chance of successful re-implantation.
  • Prolonged pain or sensitivity after an initial dental procedure, indicating potential complications or infection.
  • Significant damage to the mouth from accidents, such as fractures to the jaw or extensive oral lacerations.

If you notice any of these signs, it's crucial to seek emergency dental care promptly to prevent further complications and ensure the well-being of your child's dental health. Trust our Phoenix emergency dentist with your child's dental emergencies.
