As a parent, you do everything in your power to protect your children, but that doesn’t mean that emergencies won’t occur from time to time. With convenient hours and highly-trained specialists, it’s no wonder why Dr. C KIDS Dentistry is the top dental office for children providing urgent dental care for kids in Spokane Valley, WA.
We treat the following dental injuries and conditions:
Knocked-Out Baby Tooth
A knocked-out baby tooth may not seem like a big problem but such injuries can cause significant hidden damage. If your child’s tooth gets knocked out, keep the area as clean as possible and schedule an emergency dentist appointment right away so that our team can examine your child’s smile and suggest tooth replacement options, when appropriate.
Knocked-Out Permanent Tooth
Has your child suffered the loss of a permanent tooth? If so, call us immediately and do your best to keep the tooth safe in the meantime!
Rinse (don’t scrub) the tooth with warm water, holding it by the crown, not the root. Once this prep work is complete, have your child fit the missing tooth back into place until you arrive at our office. If they are unable to reinsert the tooth, put it in a cup with milk and bring it to the appointment.
Teeth break for a number of reasons, from biting on hard foods to spills and falls. 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
Have you noticed swelling or an abscess along your child’s gum line? This could be caused by a tooth infection which could progress into a dangerous medical situation. Call our office for an emergency appointment and speedy treatment. In the meantime, place a cold compress on the face to reduce pain and swelling.
