Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every other aspect of your child's life. Sleeping, eating, going to school, or concentrating on everyday tasks can seem to be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain and a visit to an emergency pediatric dentist is needed.
At North Texas Smiles Dentistry & Orthodontics, we specialize in providing the best pediatric dental solutions to our patients suffering with tooth pain and can often provide you with same-day emergency dentist appointment times to help your child manage pain and ensure their continued oral health!
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At North Texas Smiles, we strive to immediately take care of our pediatric dental patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack (fracture). Remember, treating your child's broken tooth at home is not an option; you need to see Dr. Warcup and our emergency pediatric dental team as soon as possible!
Broken Dental Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, broken fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay seeing Dr. Warcup to get your child treatment for a broken filling. Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a simple filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors, including your child's healthy teeth and gums. Fortunately, we can help! If treated immediately, these infections are easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your child's mouth. After treatment, Dr. Warcup will likely prescribe an antibiotic to treat the dental infection and prevent complications.
Is your child experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew or when air touches their tooth?
The first step to take if your child is suffering with persistent toothache (for longer than a day or two) is to call Dr. Warcup to schedule an emergency pediatric dental exam.
During your child's appointment, Dr. Warcup will likely x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing your child's dental pain before discussing treatment options with you.
The first few moments after an oral accident are vital in determining if your child's recovery will go smoothly. Dental trauma due to an accident is common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations.
When Do I Need an Emergency Pediatric Dentist?
If your child has experienced an oral accident resulting in a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being fractured, call Dr. Warcup immediately to schedule an emergency pediatric dental appointment.
After your visit with the emergency pediatric dentist, use our other pediatric dental services to continue treatment.
