Accidents happen! If your child has a knocked-out, fractured, cracked, or chipped tooth due to an injury, you need a compassionate pediatric dentist who is there for you and your child. Other dental emergencies, like toothaches and abscesses, are not caused by trauma but by other factors. In these cases, it’s necessary to identify the underlying causes of the problem to figure out the best course of action.

Whatever your situation is, Dr. Jason Tesoriero is here to help you and your little one smile again! He will thoughtfully evaluate your child’s mouth to provide them with the proper diagnosis and treatment.

If your child is experiencing a dental emergency in Middletown, call us today at (732) 852-9200 for a same-day appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

My child knocked out a permanent tooth. What should I do?

If your child has an injury in their mouth, remain calm and:

  • Control the bleeding using a piece of gauze
  • If possible, find the tooth (avoid touching the root)
  • Put the tooth in a cup of cold milk
  • Call our office as soon as possible

If your child loses a baby tooth, there is no need to save it — it will fall out anyway.

How do I know if my child has an infection in their mouth?

Abscesses are visible signs of infection (painful pockets of pus). Your child may also experience swelling, fever, and severe toothache. If your kid has any or all of these symptoms, call us immediately to schedule an emergency appointment.

What should I do if my child cracks, chips, or fractures a tooth?

If your child’s tooth has been fractured, try to find the lost fragment(s) and bring it/them to our office. If that’s not possible, don’t worry.

In the meantime:

  • Rinse your child’s mouth with water
  • Use a piece of gauze to stop the bleeding
  • Use a cold compress to reduce the swelling
  • Call us or come for an appointment right away
