If you have one of the conditions listed below then you have a dental emergency.
If you’re unsure if your child requires emergency medical treatment for their injuries, best to call 911. Rinse your child’s mouth carefully, with lukewarm water, taking care to have them spit out any debris from the broken tooth. Put the tooth in milk to keep it moist. Call our emergency helpline. We can advise you whether emergency treatment and replacement of the tooth is an option, or if you should let your child rest and come to the office on a different day. Losing a tooth is upsetting for a child – as well as the parent, which is why we’re hear to take the fear away for both of you. We can help you settle your child and soothe their discomfort.
We understand the distress losing or breaking a tooth can cause, and the dread this can create in the lead up to an important event, where activities such as smiling and eating (or kissing!) may be required. It’s never a good time to have a dental emergency, and that’s why we have cosmetic dentists, pediatric dentists and dental practitioners on standby 24/7 for all unexpected dental emergencies. Whether your tooth is chipped or broken, we can put you back together.

What appears to be just a broken tooth may have an underlying issue, not visible to you. If you sustained impact – especially where it caused a tooth to be knocked out – you should seek medical advice right away to check for a possible concussion or fracture. If this sounds like you, you should seek help without delay.
