Dental Emergencies

What constitutes a dental emergency when we are talking about a child’s teeth?

If your child is complaining of pain or swelling around their teeth, face or neck, this is a dental emergency.  There are 2 main types of dental emergencies for kids. The first is a toothache or tooth pain and the second is related to a dental injury like a fall to cause the teeth to be knocked, chipped, broken, or fall out all together. 

In the two links below we discuss each of these unique dental emergencies independently. So please take a moment to click on each article to learn more about what to do if your child has a toothache or a traumatic fall.
