Pediatric Dental Emergencies

We’re here to help you every step of the way

Dental emergencies can be scary, but our team will act fast to get your child the care they need.

Pediatric dental emergencies are stressful for you and your child. If your child is experiencing dental pain, you’ll need to know what to do – fast. Some of the most common pediatric dental emergencies include: Broken, chipped, fractured teeth, knocked out teeth, loose or lost fillings, severe toothaches, sensitivity to pain, temperature or pressure.

Treatments for Pediatric Dental Emergencies

Emergency pediatric dentists specialize in quickly assessing and treating dental emergencies. They are typically available after hours and can make a same-day appointment. The specific treatment will depend on the particular emergency. If a tooth is damaged or broken, dental bonding, veneers, or a crown may be applied. If a tooth is knocked out, it can sometimes be put back in; otherwise, an implant may be recommended.

When Should I Seek Treatment for my Child?

When it comes to dental emergencies, time is of the essence. If you aren’t sure what to do, err on the side of caution and call the emergency dentist for a consultation. If a tooth is cracked, chipped, broken, or knocked out, you should call immediately. Gather any pieces of the teeth you can find and bring them with you. Tooth pain and sensitivity do not always require emergency dental care. However, when the pain becomes severe enough that it prevents your child from eating, drinking, or living a normal life, an emergency dental appointment is strongly recommended.
