We’re Not Creating Ouchies
We’re Fixing Tooth Pain
Before we talk about all of the pediatric dental emergencies in Spring that we have seen over the years, can we all agree that kids can get themselves into some of the most interesting situations?
Unfortunately, sometimes their mouths or teeth bear the brunt of the action — whether it’s on the playing field or your backyard.
Teeth get knocked out, cracked, chipped, or decayed, which can lead to a real pain that no kiddo wants or should be feeling.
That’s why we’re here, fixing tooth pain and making them happy to smile again.Book Online

Common Dental Emergencies and Issues
Does your child have a cut in their mouth, or did they bite their tongue, lip, or cheek? Make sure to apply ice to the area and apply firm pressure with clean gauze or cloth if bleeding is present. If bleeding does not stop after 15 minutes or cannot be controlled by simple pressure, take the child to the emergency room. If your child has a knocked-out tooth, try to replace it in the socket or under the tongue before coming to see us. If there’s persistent pain, try cleaning the area around the sore tooth and rinse with warm saltwater. DO NOT place aspirin on the gum or on the aching tooth.
