Common Pediatric Dental Emergencies

Toothaches

Toothaches are the most common type of dental emergency in patients of all ages, and could indicate serious oral health problems like a tooth infection. If your child’s tooth hurts for more than a day or two, you should come to Memorial Children’s Dentistry for a consultation.

Damaged teeth

Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth can happen if kids are playing rough, if they slip and fall, or if they take a hard hit in a contact sport. If your child’s tooth is damaged, you should come and see Dr. Park for emergency care right away. If they play sports, you should consider investing in a mouthguard to help protect their teeth, too.

Knocked-out teeth

Even if it’s a baby tooth, a knocked-out tooth is a serious emergency. If your child loses a baby tooth early, this can interfere with their oral development.

The Emergency Dentistry Treatment Process

Comfort your child

A dental emergency can be scary for your little one. Comfort them, let them know it will be okay, and take steps to treat pain. If their mouth is bleeding, you can absorb blood with a clean cotton ball or paper towel. You can give them pain medication like acetaminophen to help with discomfort. Applying an ice pack outside the affected area can also help with pain.

Dr. Park will examine your little one, diagnose them, and provide the treatment they need to get out of pain and restore their smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. If your child is complaining about a sore tooth and their toothache lasts more than a day or two, you should schedule an emergency appointment at Memorial Children’s Dentistry. Tooth pain is never normal, and your child’s toothache could be caused by a tooth infection, which is a serious dental emergency.

First of all, it lets you get your child out of pain, and allows you both to resume your normal daily routine. Getting immediate care from Dr. Park at Memorial Children’s Dentistry also can help prevent further oral health issues and complications. In turn, that saves you both time and money.
