A dental emergency may include:

  • Facial swelling

  • Cut or bitten tongue, lip, or cheek

  • Knocked out a permanent tooth

  • Knocked out baby tooth

  • A chipped or fractured tooth

  • Severe blow to the face

  • Possible broken or fractured jaw

In the event of a dental emergency, it's important for parents to remain calm and take immediate action. If your child's tooth is broken or knocked out, try to collect and save any broken pieces and keep them in a safe place. If it is a permanent tooth that is knocked out, handle the tooth carefully and, if possible, attempt to place it back in the socket or store it in a cup of cold milk. Do not put a baby tooth back into the socket as this could damage the growing permanent tooth.

Don't hesitate to contact us right away if you suspect your child is experiencing a dental emergency. Our team will prioritize your child's care and provide guidance on how to proceed until you can visit our office. We are here to support you and ensure your child receives the prompt, effective care they need to safeguard their oral health.
