What is Emergency Dentistry?
We would love to say that toothaches and dental trauma only happen during business hours, but that’s just not the case. Kids are active and busy and may not even realize that their tooth hurts until the day begins to slow down in the evening. Regardless of the time, you may have a dental emergency on your hands.
While all dental issues involving things we are unfamiliar may feel like an emergency, not all require an immediate response. Some may be seen as scheduled emergency appointments.
If your child is experiencing any of the following, contact Dental Associates for Kids Only, LLP right away.
- Severe toothache
- Abscessed tooth
- Knocked-out tooth
- Broken or cracked tooth
- Lost crown or filling
At Dental Associates for Kids Only, LLP., we use many different restorative dental procedures that allow us to handle most dental emergencies. This includes procedures such as:

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take my child to the ER for a dental emergency?
No. Hospitals are unable to provide dental care. However, in certain circumstances, they may be able to provide medication to ease the pain.
Should I be concerned if my child’s jaw is swelling?
Absolutely. When an infection is present, your child needs to be seen by the dentist. Swelling of the face, neck, or cheeks may be a sign that tooth infection is spreading – and you will want to have it addressed as soon as possible.
Is a cracked tooth a dental emergency?
Anytime a tooth has suffered trauma it is important to have it addressed as soon as possible with an appointment. If your child is in pain or the crack reaches the gumline, this could become an emergency.
