Is This An Emergency?
Much of the stress in an emergency situation stems from the unknown. What is wrong? How can I fix it? Is this an emergency? Will my child be okay?
McKinney Pediatric is here to help you through all of these questions. Give us a call as soon as you need to.
In the meantime, here are some tips to help you out:
Emergency Room | If your child has been involved in an accident, head to the emergency room first. In a situation like that, the teeth can wait until other injuries have been treated.
Evaluate | If a tooth or teeth have been damaged, how bad is it?
A minor chip or crack—especially one with no blood or pain—will be absolutely fine. You’ll want to get it taken care of before a cavity can form in the weakened area, but care doesn’t need to happen immediately.
If you are experiencing any of these concerning dental issues, please call us immediately: teeth coming unnaturally loose, severe dental pain, or teeth broken into multiple pieces. We will be able to help you determine the best course of action for treating your children’s dental emergencies.
Call | We’re here for you. If you need answers, we are happy to help you find them. You don’t have to deal with dental emergencies alone.
