We Are Now Open And Accepting New Patients
If your child has suffered a head injury or has severe facial swelling, please call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.
If your child faces a dental emergency, give us a call. In the mean time, here are some tips
If you notice facial swelling or a swollen cheek, please call our office immediately. Significant facial swelling approaching the eye or causing difficulty breathing is a medical emergency. In this scenario, we may direct you towards the nearest children’s emergency room.
If your child falls or has trauma to the lips, gums or tongue, apply a cold compress to bleeding sites. Ice cream and popsicles will help for the uncooperative little ones. Please give MOTRIN® as indicated. Call our office to see if an appointment is needed.
If your child has a toothache that is spontaneous or hurts continuously, please make an appointment immediately. For tooth pain, MOTRIN® will work best.
If your child knocks out a PERMANENT tooth, find the tooth and place the tooth in Save-A-Tooth™ solution or milk, not water. No milk? Have your child spit into a cup. Call our office immediately. Try not to touch the root of the tooth.
***If your child knocks out a BABY tooth, we can’t put it back in the mouth. But make sure you find the tooth! Call our office to determine if an appointment is necessary.
If your child breaks or chips a permanent tooth, find the pieces of the tooth, apply a cold compress to the area and call our office to make an appointment.
