Pediatric Dental Emergencies

You need to call a pediatric dental emergency service immediately when you child faces a dental emergency. Usually, pediatric dental emergency services have an emergency number to call which you should be ready with beforehand, in case your child will face one. IN a pediatric dental emergency facility, their staff is there to assist a child whose dental health is at risk. Below are some tips on what to do in case of a dental emergency.

If your child accidentally bites his lips or his tongue so that it causes bleeding, then you simply need to clean the bite gently with water and use a cold compress on the bitten area so that it does not swell. IN order to determine how serious the bite it, you should call your pediatric dental emergency service.

Objects caught in between your child’s teeth can gently be removed with a dental floss. A stuck object should not be removed using a metal thing, a plastic or a sharp object. You should give your pediatric dental emergency service a call if you are not able to remove the item with dental floss.

Rinse the mouth with warm water if your child accidentally chips off or breaks off a piece of his tooth. If there is swelling in the mouth, then use a cold compress. Save the fragment of the tooth that was chipped of from the tooth. Then call your pediatric dental emergency service immediately.

Keep the tooth that was completely knocked out of your child’s mouth and rinse his mouth with water. Don’t touch any other part of the tooth but the crown. Keep the tooth in a clean container and head to your pediatric dental emergency service. If you bring the tooth, then your pediatric dentist can still save it.

A very loose tooth should be removed so bring your child to your pediatric dental emergency service. This is important so that your child will not swallow it.

If your child complains of toothache, check if there is anything caught in between his teeth and rinse his mouth with warm water. Use cold compress to ease the pain if it continues. Heat, aspirin or topical pain relievers should not be applied directly to the affected area. This can damage your child’s gums. Your child can take children’s pain reliever orally. Then head off to your dental emergency service.

If your child broke his jaw, use a cold compress to reduce swelling. Bring your child immediately to emergency dental clinic. Broken jaws are a result of a blow to the head. Blows on the head can be dangerous and life-threatening.

During dental emergencies you need to quickly call your emergency dental service or head immediately there.
