Do You Need to Take Action?
There are many reasons your child might need to see our emergency pediatric dentist. You should contact our office and set up an emergency appointment if your child experiences:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Teeth that have been hit, knocked out (avulsed), or knocked loose
- Severe toothache, pain, or pressure
- Tooth sensitivity
- Dental decay
- Dental abscess (infection)
- Lost or loose fillings
- Orthodontic pain or injury

If you are concerned your child’s oral health may be at risk, it is important to set up an appointment to see Dr. Chafin as soon as possible.
Treatment will vary depending on the signs, symptoms, developmental stage, and events that led to the emergency. Determining the best treatment begins with a conversation and exam with your kid’s emergency dentist. From there, our experienced staff will create a plan of action for immediate care (pending severity) and potentially also scheduling a procedure date. During the emergency dental procedure, your child will either be given a local anesthetic or possibly given the option for future sedation making the treatment near painless. Patients may be given recommendations, antibiotics, or pain medication as swelling and soreness are common before and after many emergency treatments. Our procedures are highly effective and generally take no time at all, so your child can get back to smiling and doing what kids do best.
