What is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency pediatric dental care refers to dental problems that require the immediate intervention of a professional dentist. Accidents such as falling while playing may lead to broken or knocked-out teeth. Dental infections are also treated as dental emergencies that require timely dental treatment to prevent the spread of the infection. Visiting our pediatric dental office for immediate dental care can help save your child’s teeth and avoid the further spread of disease or infection.

What Are The Main Signs You Might Need Emergency Dental Care?

For some dental issues, delayed treatment may result in more serious complications that may be costly. Some of the major signs of emergency dental care include:

  • Infection: Tooth decay is one of the causes of infections. These infections expose your child’s nerves and oral cavity to bacteria that may affect your child’s oral health. Infections may also cause swelling and a severe toothache that may affect your child’s quality of life. Severe, untreated infections can also be life-threatening.

  • Severe Pain: Your child may experience severe pain that does not respond to medication. This pain can make chewing and sleeping almost impossible.
  • Broken or Cracked Teeth: If your child has broken or cracked teeth, you must visit your pediatric dentist for an evaluation.

What Should A Parent Do During A Dental Emergency?

If your child suffers injuries that affect the mouth and causes a broken or cracked tooth, here is what you need to do before seeking immediate dental care:

  • Let the child rinse the mouth with warm water
  • Check for the broken pieces and try to save them if possible
  • Apply a cold compress to the affected area to help reduce pain and inflammation
  • Take your child to a pediatric dentist for emergency dental services

If your child presents any sign of a dental emergency, you should call your dentist to book an appointment. Sometimes, your child’s pediatric dentist may suggest you visit an emergency room for emergent treatment.
