If your child loses a baby tooth early, this is a serious emergency. The baby teeth help form the paths the adult teeth take when they erupt.

The Benefits of Immediate Emergency Dental Care

Relief From Pain & Discomfort

A broken tooth, a pulled-out crown, or a toothache can cause lots of pain. And the only way to eliminate this pain is with proper dental care from an experienced emergency dentist. Once your child gets treatment at our office, they can get back to their normal routine without pain, crying, and distractions.

Prevent More Complications

As a rule, the longer you wait to get help for your child, the worse their condition will be. For example, if they have a tooth infection, it’s possible to save the tooth with a root canal if it’s caught early. But if you wait too long, the tooth could be too infected to save. This may lead to tooth loss, or even other serious complications like sepsis, a potentially life-threatening reaction to a serious infection.

Save Time & Money

The sooner you get help, the more affordable your child’s care will be. For example, repairing a broken tooth with a dental crown is a lot cheaper than extracting it and replacing it with a dental implant. If you see a dentist as soon as you notice your child’s issue, your budget will thank you.

Treating Your Child’s Condition

Every child is different, and so is every dental emergency. A few common emergency dental treatments include root canals, dental fillings, dental crowns, tooth extractions, and splints for loose or knocked-out teeth. Your child’s dentist will make sure that they get the appropriate care for their condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

If a baby tooth has come loose and it’s not due to an oral injury, you don’t have to do anything. Baby teeth are meant to fall out eventually, so this is natural.

However, if one of their teeth becomes loose and is bleeding after an oral injury, it may not be ready to fall out yet. The best thing to do is to get a consultation with your child’s dentist to have their mouth examined, and determine whether the tooth can be saved or if it should be replaced with a space maintainer.

A severe toothache could indicate that your child has a deep cavity or an infected tooth. You should schedule a consultation at our office right away, as these are both serious dental emergencies that will only get worse without proper treatment.

Knocked-out baby teeth are not usually replaced, even if they’re lost prematurely. If it’s a baby tooth, your child will need to come into our office to have their mouth examined and cleaned to prevent infection, and to get a “space maintainer.” This prosthetic will maintain the proper gap between their teeth, preventing the adjacent teeth from shifting toward the now-empty socket.

For an adult tooth, though, you need to get help immediately. Recover the tooth, rinse it, and put it in a container of cold milk to keep it moist. Then, come to our office immediately. Don't spend too much time treating pain or bleeding. Your child’s tooth must be re-attached within 1-2 hours for it to be saved, so time is of the essence. We can treat your child’s pain when they get to our office.

First, treat their discomfort and bleeding. Then, contact us for a same-day appointment. Even minor tooth damage can cause hairline fractures and these fractures could lead to infections and other complications. After consulting with your child’s dentist, they can determine the best treatment for restoring the damaged tooth, and ensure your child’s smile remains healthy and strong.

Collect the filling, crown, or other piece of dental work and place it in a plastic baggie. Then, call us for a same-day appointment, and make sure to bring your child’s dental work in with you. It may be possible to reattach a crown instead of completely replacing it.
