Injuries to the mouth and teeth of children are very time sensitive and need to be addressed immediately. Contacting us in time and getting to our office quickly may save a tooth, prevent infection and reduce the need of further treatment and suffrage. Please call us if your child has:
- A tooth fracture, broken or avulsed or knocked out tooth;
- Swollen or infected gums;
- Damage to soft tissue such as cut tongue, lip or cheek
- Other severe tooth, mouth or jaw ache.
Leaving issues untreated or delaying treatment can contribute to poor oral health and other serious general health issues. The sooner you seek evaluation at our office, the better the chance of avoiding extensive dental treatments and the faster your child will be back to their smiling, happy self.
