Pediatric Dental Emergencies

We will make every effort to see your child on the day of any Dental Emergencies. If your child is a patient of record and is having a dental emergency after hours, please call the office at (916) 852-8510 and listen to the recording for the emergency phone number.

First Aid for Dental Emergencies

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth
Find the tooth. Handle the tooth by the top (crown), not the root portion. You may briefly rinse the tooth but DO NOT clean or handle the tooth unnecessarily. Try to reinsert it into its socket. Have the child hold the tooth in place by biting on a clean gauze or cloth. If you cannot reinsert the tooth, transport the tooth in a cup containing milk or saliva. See Dr. Juarez IMMEDIATELY! Time is a critical factor in saving the tooth.

Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek
Apply ice to bruised areas. If there is bleeding, apply firm pressure with a clean gauze or cloth. If bleeding does not stop after 15 minutes or it cannot be controlled by simple pressure, take the child to the emergency room.

Toothache
Clean the area around the sore tooth thoroughly. Rinse the mouth vigorously with warm salt water or use dental floss to dislodge trapped food or debris. DO NOT place aspirin on the gum or on the aching tooth. If face is swollen, apply a cold compress. Take acetaminophen for pain and see Dr. Juarez as soon as possible.

Broken Tooth
Rinse dirt from injured area with warm water. Place cold compresses over the face in the area of the injury. Locate and save the broken tooth fragments. See Dr. Juarez immediately!
