Chips or fractures can affect your child’s comfort and tooth health.


Toothaches may signal underlying issues needing swift action.


Loose teeth in children should be examined to avoid complications.


Infections require urgent care to prevent the spread and further damage.


Objects stuck in the mouth need professional removal to prevent injury.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if my child knocks out a permanent tooth?

Immediately try to find the tooth and, if possible, place it back in the socket. Otherwise, keep it moist and call us right away.

What if my child has a toothache at night?

Start by cleaning the area gently and applying a cold compress. Contact us or seek emergency care if the pain is severe.

Is a loose tooth always an emergency?

It depends on the context. For young children with baby teeth, it’s normal, but a loose permanent tooth is a concern and should be checked by a professional.

Can a chipped tooth be fixed on the same day?

Yes, in many cases, we can address chips with quick treatments like fillings or crowns, depending on the severity.

How can I prevent dental emergencies?

Regular check-ups, protective gear during sports, and teaching safe chewing habits are effective ways to minimize risks.
