We will take care of everything they need to start the healing process and get back to being a kid! We can treat emergencies like:
After a traumatic injury or sudden impact, teeth can break below the gumline, leaving a fractured tooth with the soft, inner root exposed. When this happens, a pediatric dentist will attempt to reattach the broken piece if it can be recovered. Otherwise, they will treat any pain or bleeding before discussing potential reconstructive options.
Inconvenient at best and debilitating at its worst, tooth pain can be a symptom of a greater underlying problem. Tooth pain often happens when a tooth has decayed or is damaged, and while it can be managed with ice and over-the-counter pain medication, it is best to schedule an appointment with your dentist for a full exam.
If you are concerned about something else that is causing your child pain or discomfort in the mouth, or otherwise impacts their ability to eat or speak normally, give a us a call and let our trained pediatric dental professionals answer your questions.

How To Avoid Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies can happen when we least expect them, but they more commonly happen during play time. Parents should be mindful of risks to their children’s teeth when they are playing around hard objects like playground equipment or with sports gear. Some basic safety steps like wearing mouth guards where appropriate, reminding children to run with their heads up to avoid obstacles, or stopping play when it gets too rough are all concrete steps you can take to ensure your child will not need pediatric dental emergency services.
How To Treat Common Dental Emergencies
A dental emergency is most broadly defined as a traumatic event or advanced decay of the mouth that requires immediate treatment to stop bleeding, prevent infection, or restore bite functionality. Cracked or chipped teeth, teeth that have been fully “avulsed” or “knocked out,” broken jaws or facial bones, or cuts to the mouth or tongue all constitute dental emergencies and should be treated by a qualified pediatric emergency dentist as soon as possible.
However, there are steps that you can take at home to treat a common dental emergency to increase your child’s comfort and help your dentists perform their job more effectively. However, if an emergency presents an immediate threat to your child’s life, call 911 immediately and wait for emergency response services.
For a cracked or avulsed tooth, time is of the essence. If you are able to recover the missing part of the tooth, place the tooth in a glass of milk or salt water (saliva will also work) and contact your pediatric dentist immediately. They may be able to reseat or reattach the tooth or piece of tooth if they are uncompromised. Ice can be applied gently to the area around the broken tooth to treat pain and swelling; otherwise, a mild, doctor-approved pain medication can also be given.
A broken jaw is a more complicated injury, and your pediatric dentist will also advise you on the best course of action. The jaw and head should be stabilized as much as possible on your way to the dentist’s office, and your child should avoid eating, drinking or talking until the jaw can be examined and set by a professional pediatric dentist.
A cut or laceration in the mouth can bleed profusely, but it is very rare that the amount of blood lost would be life threatening. If you are able to apply a clean cloth or medical dressing to the cut without impeding your child’s airway, hold the cloth or have them hold it with some pressure to stem the bleeding. Have them lean forward to let as much blood out of the mouth as possible — swallowing blood is not dangerous but too much can lead to nausea or vomiting.
Call us as soon as your child experiences a dental emergency, and our patient care coordinator will provide you with care instructions before scheduling an appointment with your child’s dentist as soon as possible.
Pain-Free Experience — We Offer Different Forms of Dental Anesthesia
In certain cases, general anesthesia can make young patients more comfortable and a dentist’s job safer and more effective. We offer different types of sedation services depending on our patient’s needs and their parent’s preference, and we provide in-office general anesthesia through a partnership with a trained anesthesiologist.
Local anesthesia is a numbing agent that is applied directly to the tooth and surrounding gums. It is generally used for fillings and other simple procedures.
Known to many as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is an inhaled sedative that numbs any pain and relieves anxiety while the patient remains awake through a procedure. It acts fast and wears off with no side effects.
Usually administered in the form of a pill an hour or so before the procedure, oral sedation alleviates pain and anxiety without making a patient unconscious.
General IV Anesthesia
IV anesthesia is usually reserved for longer procedures or exceptionally anxious patients. The anesthesia is applied through an IV, where it works quickly and steadily while the patient remains unaware of their surroundings.
