We understand parents will do everything in their power to protect their children, yet oral emergencies can still occur from time to time. With convenient hours, same-day appointments, and highly-trained specialists, it’s no wonder why Dr. C KIDS Dentistry is the top dental office providing urgent dental care for kids in Airway Heights, WA!
We treat the following dental injuries and conditions:
Knocked-Out Baby Tooth
A knocked-out baby tooth may not seem like a serious problem, but it has the potential to cause significant hidden damage. If your child’s tooth gets knocked out in an accident or injury, keep the area as clean as possible and schedule an emergency dentist appointment right away! Our team will carefully examine your child’s smile and suggest tooth replacement options, if appropriate.
Knocked-Out Permanent Tooth
Has your child lost a permanent tooth? If so, call Dr. C KIDS Dentistry right away and do your best to keep the tooth safe until you arrive!
Rinse (don’t scrub) the tooth with warm water, holding it by the crown, not the root. Then, have your child fit the missing tooth back into place until you can get to our office. If you are unable to reinsert the tooth, put it in a cup with milk and bring it to your emergency appointment.
Children can experience a broken tooth for a number of reasons, including falls, spills, and biting down on hard foods. If your child’s tooth suffers a break, rinse the area with warm water before placing a cold compress over the face to reduce swelling. Call our office immediately for tooth repair and to assess further injuries.
Swelling & Abscesses
Is there swelling or an abscess along your child's gum line? This can indicate a tooth infection that could progress into a more serious health concern. To treat it quickly, call our office for an emergency dental appointment. Until you can get to our office, place a cold compress on your child's face to reduce any pain and swelling.
