Acting In Dental Emergency

Dental emergencies can be scary for you and your child. If your child faces a dental emergency, call us immediately. Dr. Julie is dedicated to helping your child if an emergency should arise. She understands that urgency and efficiency in a traumatic incident can help prevent future problems.

Some Emergencies include:
  • knocked-out-toothache
    Knocked-Out Teeth
    If your child knocks out a tooth, determine first that it is a permanent tooth. If so, find the tooth and try to place it back in the socket. Have your child hold it there until you get to the office. If your child can not put the tooth back in place, place the tooth in milk or a save-a-tooth solution and contact the office immediately. Be careful to not touch the root of the tooth. If your child knocks out a baby tooth, we cannot put it back, as it may disrupt the growing permanent tooth. Find the tooth, place it under your child’s pillow and get them excited for the tooth fairy!
