What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency?

Your child may need emergency dental attention if they have had an accident that’s resulted in damage to their teeth, or if they are experiencing a sudden and uncomfortable toothache or tooth sensitivity. Dental emergencies can include:

• Cracked and chipped teeth
• Knocked out teeth
• Extensive tooth decay
• Lost or broken fillings

If your child is experiencing discomfort or damage to teeth, it’s important to call Dr. Melissa Lopez at Shadelands Pediatric Dentistry as soon as possible; the sooner you see a pediatric dentist, the more likely you are to avoid more complicated oral health treatment due to extensive damage from dental injuries or tooth pain.  Contact our children’s dental office today for immediate treatment for a dental emergency.
