Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every other aspect of your child's life. Sleeping, eating, or concentrating in school can seem to be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain.
At Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry, we specialize in providing the best solutions to every child and can often provide same-day and even Saturday emergency pediatric dentist appointment times to help you manage your child's dental pain and ensure their oral health!
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem, especially for kids. Teeth can be knocked out due to a fall or playground accident. At Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry, we strive to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack (fracture). Baby teeth area also more susceptible to cracks and chips than adult teeth. Remember, treating your child's broken tooth at home is not an option; you need to see Dr. Susan as soon as possible!
Our Kirkland pediatric dental practice offers early morning and weekend emergency dental appoints to make it easy to schedule an appointment if your child has broken their tooth.
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. Susan to get treatment for your child's broken dental filling. Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of your child's entire mouth. Fortunately, Dr. Susan is ready to help! If treated immediately, these infections are easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your child's developing mouth. After treatment, Dr. Susan will likely prescribe your child an antibiotic to completely treat the dental infection and prevent further complications.
Is your child experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt when they 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. Susan to schedule an emergency pediatric dental exam. During your child's appointment, Dr. Susan will likely x-ray your child's tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing pain before discussing treatment options with you and your child.
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.
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. Susan immediately to schedule an emergency pediatric dentist appointment.
