What should you do if your child has a dental emergency?
All dental emergencies are serious, particularly if bacteria invades a tooth and causes serious infection. If you have an emergency or are concerned about your dental health, Harris Dental Boutique should be your first place to call.
A dental emergency could be:
- A broken tooth
- A broken denture
- facial swelling
- lost tooth
- bleeding (trauma affecting your mouth)
- A knock to the mouth
Nobody wants to have a toothache – they are painful and distressing, especially for children. One of the main causes of toothache in young children is teething. Teething can start at about six months of age and the pain can continue when adult teeth come through. Tooth decay is also a reason your child may have pain. Usually this is due to too much sugar in the diet and not enough effective brushing. If pain relief is needed, choose a sugar-free option and make an appointment with your dentist.
