The simple fact is that not every dental concern that your child has can wait for a regularly scheduled appointment. Urgent matters come up, with kids as much, if not more often, than for adults. Here at Nia Pediatric Dentistry & Family Orthodontics, we manage and treat a variety of pediatric dental emergencies, from a toothache to a knocked out tooth.
Dental trauma can cover a wide territory, but essentially if you feel you have a pediatric dental emergency in Canton, you should not hesitate to contact us immediately. Injuries or accidents can result in a chipped, broken, or fractured tooth. In some cases, the entire tooth can be jarred loose or even be separated from its socket entirely. In such cases, time is of the essence. For broken teeth, try to find and save the piece that has come off. And for a knocked out tooth, keep it moist by placing it in a glass of milk or a container with water and a pinch of salt. Our kids dentist will make every effort to save the tooth. A broken jaw may also result from an accident or injury and is most certainly a pediatric dental emergency in Canton. If your child sustained head trauma which was the cause of the broken jaw, he or she should be seen as quickly as possible, either here or at a hospital. Other urgent matters that we deal with include a bitten lip or tongue, an object caught in her or his teeth, a loose tooth, and a toothache of any degree, regardless of origin.
We understand that urgent dental matters can be frightening and stressful for both you and your child. The good news is that you’re not alone. We’re here to help. Call us for essential advice and guidance, even if you’re not able to come in right away. Keep our number programmed into your phone so that when a pediatric dental emergency in Canton comes up, you will not have to delay even one minute.
