We understand childhood oral emergencies. From athletics to child’s play to unexpected accidents, our team is experienced and prepared to deliver the emergency care your child needs.
Knowing what to do when your child experiences dental issues will help you and your child remain calm and collected. Here are a few common situations.
Clean the area, rinse thoroughly with warm water and visually investigate to ensure no food particles are causing the pain. If the pain is severe or lasts more than a day, please contact the Wildey team.
Apply ice with a cloth to limit swelling and bleeding. If bleeding does not stop or if the cut seems severe, visit the emergency room.
This is not usually an emergency, and in most cases, no treatment is necessary. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.
Find the tooth. Either have your child hold it in their mouth or in a cup with their saliva or milk. See a dentist right away.
Apply ice with a cloth to limit swelling. Bring any tooth fragments to your visit with us.
If your child experiences a possible broken jaw or a severe blow to the head, please take them to the nearest emergency room.
