Immediate Care for Your Child’s Dental Needs
There aren’t many things as painful as a toothache. Denali Pediatric Dentistry understands that parents need to have access to immediate emergency dental care so that their child’s pain can be alleviated quickly. That’s why we’re committed to offering care that puts your mind at ease and has your child smiling again in no time.
If your child has broken a tooth, immediately place the segment of the tooth in a cup of saline or milk. Do not attempt to clean the tooth off. Call our office immediately for further instructions.
Abscessed teeth often appear as a small pimple along the gum lines. If left untreated, they can cause severe infections and facial swelling that may result in hospitalization. The tooth should be treated quickly and the child may need to be placed on an antibiotic. Short-term pain relief can be achieved by using a warm or cool compress and ibuprofen.
After Hours Care
Our dentists are available on-call after normal business hours for emergency purposes. In some cases, it may be necessary to meet you at our office for immediate care. Other circumstances may be able to wait until the next business day with proper home care instructions and medication.
