Questions about emergency care

What are some common dental emergencies in children?

Some of the most common dental emergencies in children are toothaches, broken or chipped teeth, knocked-out teeth, and injuries to the lips, tongue, or gums.

What can I do to prevent dental emergencies in my child?

Sometimes emergencies are inevitable, but there are some things you can do to prevent them:

  • If your child performs any sports or other physical activities, ensure that they wear a sports mouthguard.
  • Avoid hard or sticky foods that could damage their teeth.
  • Maintain a regular dental hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing.

Is giving my child pain medication for a dental emergency safe?

Before giving your child any pain medication, it’s important to consult with our dental team to ensure that the medication is safe and appropriate for their age and condition. In some cases, we may recommend over-the-counter pain relievers or medication to manage your child’s pain.

Will my child need dental treatment after a dental emergency?

The extent of treatment needed after a dental emergency will depend on the severity of the injury or condition. In some cases, your child may only require minor treatment, such as a filling or crown. In more serious cases, however, your child may require more extensive treatment, such as a root canal or tooth extraction. Our dental team will work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment for your child’s specific needs.
