Emergency pediatric dental care is a specialized area of dentistry that involves providing urgent dental care for children who have experienced trauma, injury or other dental emergencies. Some common types of pediatric dental emergencies include:
- Toothaches or dental pain
- Broken, chipped or knocked-out teeth
- Dental abscesses or infections
- Mouth or jaw injuries
- An object stuck in the teeth or gums
If a child experiences a dental emergency, it is important to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible. Delaying treatment can lead to further complications and may increase the risk of long-term damage to the teeth, gums or jaw.
When seeking emergency pediatric dental care, it is important to choose a dental practice that has experience in treating children and has the appropriate equipment and team to handle pediatric emergencies. Pediatric dentists are trained to provide specialized care for children and may be a good option for emergency care.
It is also a good idea to prepare for dental emergencies in advance by having a first-aid kit on hand with items such as gauze, saline solution and a cold compress. We invite parents and caregivers to contact us if your child is suffering from a dental emergency that needs immediate attention. Call 385-378-5791 today to schedule their treatment as soon as possible.
